This woman who works as a property investor appreciates her dirty socks at IDR 392 thousand. He also sold his used shoes for £200 or Rp 3.9 million.
Roxy is really interested in unique and unusual things. He saw this opportunity and used it to make money from the business he is currently running.
In 2020, Roxy has earned IDR 156 million in a month. The more successful his sales, he expanded his business from social media to websites because of the booming orders.
However, sales don’t always go smoothly. Roxy often gets criticism because people don’t like selling used goods.
