If you love the resale industry, more than just shopping for luxury items, like you really want to be a part of it, here’s your chance. Worlds Best has launched a crowdfunding campaign on SeedInvest to raise capital and for a mere $500 you could be a part of this industry without having to lift a finger! Most people think of gofundme when they think of crowdfunding, but there are many forms it can take.
“World’s Best is disrupting a decades-old luxury market. By combining online convenience with dedicated Concierge service, World’s Best provides clients with significant benefits compared to traditional retail stores and impersonal ecommerce sites.

What they’re doing differently from the other mover and shakers in this space (The RealReal, Tradesy, Rebag) is being a lot more discerning in the brands and items they accept for resale. Think true luxury. They only accept the best of the best in handbags, watches and luxury decor so this is the best place to find those special edition items from Chanel and Hermes and more. I must say with the vast selection of watches, I’ve learned more about luxury timepieces on Worlds Best than any other website around.
Why is this important? This is the future of the resale industry and as more and more companies jump into this space, there is going to be a much larger divide with customers becoming a lot more discerning as to the places they choose to do business with.
What matters the most is who’s actually behind the company and the talent they hire to drive growth. You are going to have to have not only have like minded people behind your brand but have a vision on where you want to be. Growth is so key in this industry and when you take a look around, there are quite a few companies rising to the top along with Worlds Best. Luxury Garage Sale just hired a CEO, The RealReal and Rebag have launched pop-ups and LXRCO is in just about every department store from Miami to Canada.
So far they have raised $226,500 with a $6M valuation cap which I think is pretty impressive to say the least. To read the prospectus and invest, click here and to shop, click here. Mind you, if you see something you like, grab it because item’s do not last long on the website.
