LOS ANGELES – “It’s my turn … Ok sorry, you’re right.” Spirited mother / daughter duo Kelly and Lauren Epstein are quickly becoming an online selling sensation.
In March, the pandemic forced small business owner Kelly Epstein to abruptly shut down her popular Woodland Hills store, Kingfisher Road.
âThe first week that this happened I was a little numb to be honest. Then I got to work and thought we had a website.
So Kelly moved the business online. She and her daughter began hosting a weekly Facebook live sales show from their living room using the Commentsold e-commerce platform.
Epstein said sales were nowhere near where they were, but it’s a start.
âI would say my sales are now easily less than a quarter of what they were when I was open,â Epstein said.
Using an iPad, every Thursday evening, the duo present their products live to customers registered on the site.
âWe’re going to show some jewelry and a few small home decor items, and then we’re going to go to clothes,â Lauren Epstein said.
Epstein says that the backbone of life, selling online has opened up an unexpected whole new stream of income.
âThe next day we had a huge increase in sales on the website so people kept shopping,â said Kelly Epstein.
The duo have only been formed for three weeks and business is already developing.
âI think the first week we had 50, then 100, it just keeps getting more and more,â Lauren said.
And while the two of them hope to reopen the store soon, in the meantime they say they’ll continue to use humor and fun to earn what they can while staying safer at home.
