Today is international Women’s Day and eBay are taking the time to celebrate the hardworking and inspiring women sellers on the eBay marketplace.
This year, the IWD theme is #BreakTheBias, a call to imagine a world where women and men are equal, free of bias, stereotypes and discrimination. A world that is diverse, equitable and inclusive where difference is valued and celebrated. eBay is committed to gender equality and are proud to celebrate the women selling and buying on the platform.
eBay have recognised four outstanding women sellers living in the U.K., the U.S., and Indonesia who exemplify the eBay spirit.
Helen Adekalu, Bosede Accessories
Helen Adekalu runs her jewelry and accessories business, Bosede Accessories, from her home in South London. She sells colorful, African-inspired jewelry that’s currently unavailable in local department stores without a huge markup. Helen has been able to turn her passion into a successful business, with 100 percent of her sales coming from eBay.
During the height of the Black Lives Matter protests, the majority of Helen’s Black-inspired pieces sold out, including her Black and Proud earrings (shown above). Her next priority is improving her marketing and creating even more products for her eBay store.
Jessica Fascinar, Chamber Helmet
The CEO and owner of Chamber Helmet started selling her custom-made motorcycle helmets on eBay in 2020. With guidance from eBay’s business development team, Jessica has been able to expand her business globally. Today, her largest shipments overseas are to buyers in France, Italy and the U.S.
She handles all the business’ operations from design and production to marketing. Jessica attributes her ability to wear multiple hats to being a mom, a wife and an entrepreneur.
Katelyn Huffine, Beauty on Point
Building a business has enabled Katelyn Huffine to provide for her extended family.
At Beauty on Point, Katelyn sells makeup, skincare and other beauty products. She helps women do their best by helping them look and feel their best.
My mother, sisters and I have had many hardships over the years, and our work has gotten us through it together. eBay has not only allowed us the ability to financially recover from some difficult challenges, but has empowered each of us to pursue the lives we want and to thrive.Katelyn Huffine, Beauty on Point
