From a young age, Dallas Wolford knew she wanted to follow in her dad’s footsteps and become a surgeon. “I remember growing up and seeing the patients that my dad would operate on,” she says, “and their lives were transformed.”

As most doctors will attest, Dallas’ journey to receiving her medical degree took many years, and led her around the nation for studying and internships. Along the way to earning her degree in plastic surgery and burn reconstruction, Dallas schlepped a growing pile of clothing, shoes and other stuff she wasn’t using anymore.

“I was a struggling medical student,” says Dallas, “and Mercari just [made it] so easy to make money off the things I didn’t use anymore.”

After selling her first few items, Dallas concluded that just about anyone can sell just about anything on Mercari. “Just a couple of taps on your phone and then it’s posted and other people can shop it. It’s just so simple.”
