In this day and age, having your own clothing boutique doesn't necessitate a brick-and-mortar location. In fact, anyone can do it by just having a smartphone.

That's exactly what thousands of people have done after stumbling upon Poshmark, a smartphone app that allows users to sell their stuff and make some quick cash.

Poshmark connects users by allowing them to shop in each other's closets anytime they wish. Once an account is created, all you have to do is take a picture of an item you want to see, write a description and upload it. When another user likes what you have, they make you an offer.

If you accept it, all you have to do is package it up, sent it away and wait for your cash.

One local user, Kenita Calhoun, has already sold hundreds of dollars in merchandise. Not only is she a successful seller, though, she's hooked on buying as well. She calls it her "Posh Karma" - she thinks if she buys from others, they'll return the favor.

"With Poshmark, it's more a sense of openness and love," she said. "We all share the same passion for fashion."
