Today we’d like to introduce you to Monica Tapia-Mularski and Erika Tapia Schrieber. Them and their team share their story with us below:
With over a decade of experience in the luxury handbag resale industry, Season 2 Consign was created by sisters, Monica Tapia-Mularski and Erika Tapia Schrieber.
The sisters found a major void in the market for a modernized, efficient model of consignment with an elevated aesthetic and the best customer service out there.
They were advised not to launch a business during the summer of 2020 (Covid pandemic lockdown) but knew in their guts it was the time to go for it!
Would you say it’s been a smooth road, and if not what are some of the biggest challenges you’ve faced along the way?
Yes, it has been smooth for the most part. Launching a business is never actually easy.
Society tends to glorify entrepreneurship and make it seem so aspirational and, even though it’s a true blessing, it’s also A LOT of work to make a business successful.
Launching during a pandemic came with its own set of struggles. People were home and not necessarily out shopping so that’s why we structured our business to be strictly e-commerce and implemented an interactive luxury shopping experience.
Building a true connection with our community, virtually, was the most important thing for us.
Alright, so let’s switch gears a bit and talk business. What should we know?
MISSION to create a digital safe space for clients on both ends of our business model, whereby consignors and customers feel that our product cycle builds trust, has integrity, and the highest quality concierge-style customer service at its core.
Season 2 was one of the first companies in the United States, in the luxury resale space, to implement an interactive live shopping experience directly on their website.
If you had to, what characteristic of yours would you give the most credit to?
Living and working with a “spirit of excellence”.
We say that on a daily basis in our office and it’s part of our company culture. Now, we don’t believe in perfection BUT we do strive to go the extra mile to ensure everything we touch on a daily basis has been executed to the best of our ability.
We also make sure we embrace and acknowledge shortcomings so we can learn and grow from them.
