Vita Kreslina AllHappyCustomers: From marketplace trader to face of eBay campaign
Vita Kreslina, co-owner of AllHappyCustomers who joined eBay UK’s Retail Revival partnership with Wolverhampton City Council in 2018 has been selected by eBay to appear in the company’s latest advertising campaign, showing off her used clothing sales business which is thriving on the marketplace.
Vita is appearing on billboards across Wolverhampton in the new advertising campaign in Wolverhampton following the success of the Retail Revival partnership. Staring her journey as a market seller in Wolverhampton, just two years ago, Vita decided to start selling her stock of second-hand clothing and shoes on eBay during the Christmas break and became a part of the eBay Retail Revival Programme.
“When I found out I would have the opportunity to be featured in eBay’s advert, I was speechless. It feels surreal to see myself on a billboard in the centre of town, but I’m honoured to represent the local business community.
The Retail Revival scheme was a fantastic opportunity to meet like-minded entrepreneurs and exchange insights, which has been hugely valuable to improving my eBay store. Since taking part I’ve not only seen financial growth of my business, but also learnt how to maximise the opportunities that the eBay platform provides.”
