What do people mean by destash?

Does this ONLY refer to supplies that are part of your personal collection that you are selling off?
Do you use destash as a "tag" too?
I'm going to be selling off some of my vinatge beads next week, and want to make sure that I'm using the tags properly. Etsy seems to have its own language sometimes! :)

I have been clearing out all sorts of supplies that I am not using anymore. I've been tagging with destash and using de-stash as the first word in the title. I've been doing that to indicate that it is a one-time type deal and a bargain to just clear things out.
I've heard though that others are buying large volumes of supplies to get a better price and plan to keep some and de-stash the rest. But to me you don't buy something just to destash it.

hmm... my definition of destash....
I list the items I have bought in the local stores, that I hoped to use oneday for crafting... instead the items filled my room to over capacity and I found I no longer did that craft... My parents yelled! CLEAN YOUR ROOM! So I tell them.... I can't I have all this stuff listed on Etsy for people to buy from me so I can recoupe my losses for paying premium price for it, and once it is sold I won't ever do that craft again....

i use the tag in my supplies store, and i use it to refer only to excess supplies i am removing from my stash...anything that is handmade by me for the purpose of being a supply or something i bought excess of for the purpose of resale or splitting up is not tagged with that, though i understand some people have different definitions :) lol
