Hi friends - we are Chloe (Stanford ‘21) and Claire Lee (Georgetown ‘2X), sisters, roommates, and founders, now on year 2 (!!) of living our dream of shaking off the stasis that has seeped its way into shopping as we know it today. Thank you to all our Sellebs, investors, buyers, friends, and family who have supported us along this wild ride <3
Our story: Scoring Kendall Jenner's Alexander McQueen Angry Bunny Sweatshirt in 2015 at a one-time internet sale (years before Kardashian Kloset was a thing) definitely left some threads hanging for the Lee sisters. The emotional connection created by that transaction would always linger. It was the pandemic that would ultimately jolt us into action. We had some time to bemoan the fact that shopping experiences had become faceless and unmemorable -- where you sift and swap the dregs of the fast-fashion food chain and cut low-ball deals on copycat aesthetics. And all the soulless scrolling! It was infinite, exhausting, and to be fair, becoming… well… old-fashioned...
That's where Selleb comes in. Our platform is all about providing an interactive (and actually FUN) shopping journey that sells experiences, stories, moments. Think about the power of emotions in physical items: How do you feel when you see (or gasp, wear) the old hoodie your ex left behind in your closet? What if you could start collecting items of public figures that had this kind of distinctive, one-of-a-kind idiosyncratic narrative infused in them?
Selleb provides a connection with your fav public figures whom you love and follow on social media. Yes we are talking about the trendsetters, the cool hunters, the cultural early adopters, and the tastemakers with an X factor/ insider chats/unforgettable style to get you excited about shopping again. What's even better? Curation and sustainability are intrinsically stitched into the fabric of our company DNA.
Whether it's an over-sized graphic T worn by a lovable TikTokker, a monogrammed tote belonging to a fashion icon, a Rubik's Cube used by a gold medalist winner, a jersey worn by your fav athlete during a championship victory -- every piece on our site is a pop-culture cocktail with a story waiting to be spilled. Welcome to the coolest yard sale on the internet.
We are thrilled that you dropped by,
