I am renting mine for .50 cents. I could not find them cheaper than that and don’t want to deal with collecting them and washing them later. Even with the possibility of reselling, I don’t think it is worth the hassle.

getting ours from CV linens for .57 each. I’ve already received the samples and they are nice quality and we should be able to sell them and make at least half our money back.

More often than not, it’s cheaper to rent. Plus, you don’t have to deal with the headache of finding a home for them later since your time equals money as well.

yes definitly consider the effort of washing, refolding, making pretty for sale, and storing until someone buys them. and dont COUNT on getting money back, you never know how things will sell.

my bff and i are both getting married we talked about going in together to buy silverware for $0.25 a peice at walmart or even less at restraunt supply stores. he was planning on renting for $0.25 each but buying would give the convience of being able to set up ahead of time and the cost would be cut in half between the 2 of us. then he postponed their wedding so i chose plasticware and paper napkins.

I found it was slightly cheaper to rent, but they did not have the shade of pink I wanted, so my aunt bought material and is sewing them.

selling them should be no problem unless you a ordering a really off color. Every post I have seen on here with napkins/linens/chair covers for sale that I would have purchased has them sold before I could respond.
