I am always on the lookout for a new career (so tired of sitting behind a desk all day) and after doing some research in our area, I noticed a lack of bridal consignment shops in San Diego. I know there was one shop in Old Town, but the owner is closing or has closed the shop recently. There is also one located in Vista, but it is not a bridal only shop. I was wondering how many of you would be interested or know someone who would be interested in buying a used, high end designer gown or other accessories? I know that all things bridal are very personal and have such sentimental value, but in this economy, I wonder how well this would be received. I am in the beginning stages of gathering interest and market need. Any suggestions or thoughts (or gowns that you want to sell) would be welcome.

I don’t know if you are looking to still buy wedding gowns, but I want to sell my Maggie Sottero Dion white wedding dress. It is a strapless A-line, lace up gown with a draped satin overlay. The gown features lightly beaded tulle panels at the side front and on the sweep train. The front neckline is embellished with a floral beaded design of Swarovski crystals, pearls, sequins and seed beads. It is a size 14, but with the lace up back it can easily go down or up in size. It was worn for about 4 hours and then professionally cleaned. I am also including the matching veil. Let me know if you are interested, you can email me at [email protected] Thanks

I have a Justin Alexander 9651 (http://bit.ly/st79VQ) in a size 10 with cups added and the hem brought up to fit someone 5’3 with heels. It has been professionally cleaned and I have a bubble veil I did not wear that I am willing to sell.

@futuremissus: Hi! Did you ever open your store? I just bought a bridesmaids dress boutique and have a TON of discontinued bridesmaids dresses. These dresses are from 2 to 3 seasons’ ago and are either by designers who are out of business (Melissa Sweet, Priscilla of Boston) or by designers still in business but no longer designing said dress (Jenny Yoo, Amsale). I think I have around 280 of these dresses. Most are size 8 or 10, but there are a few other sizes amongst the mix. Great for those who just have one bridesmaid or don’t want everyone to match. I’d keep them but I don’t have room in the store.
