Maryam Sarreshteh was born and raised in Iran. Love took her to Minneapolis, where she continued her career as a graphic designer for retailers like Target. In 2007, she gave birth to twins and wanted to find a flexible job so that she could spend more time at home with her kids. She began selling their unworn clothing items on eBay during their naptime, and quickly realized her potential business model. In just a few years, Solidago has become an ever-expanding network of closets so filled to the brim that we moved from the basement to a warehouse!
