The WebsiteYes, this is a real store! The inventory, shopping cart and payment functions work. If you buy something, I will send it! It is mostly a portfolio project to display my ability than a shop I want to promote. But, as long as I am working at it, I might as well build something real! Read through the FAQs if you have general questions about how this site works.
The ProjectI am a web developer. This website is a rebuild of a project I created a few months ago. This one is build using Next JS. For those who have viewed by portfolio and GitHub, you will notice I initially created this same shop using vanilla React. Since then, I have learned a lot more and wanted to update the site with a more modern feel and added functionality. It is built using Next JS, Material UI, Commerce JS and Stripe along with a host of dependencies.
The InventoryWhere did all these clothes and items come from, you ask? In my college days, between 2006-2012, I worked in a clothing store. As such, I had access to all the latest fashion at a discount. As you may remember, the 2000s was a crazy time for urban wear. We liked our clothes with extra breathing room! Most of these items are extremely lightly worn. Because they have always been in such good condition, I have been reluctant to throw them away. I have always intended to sell them at the flea market, but I have no desire to wheel & deal, haggle and negotiate.
