I was just wondering, if you sold your wedding dress, how did you sell, how long did it take and how much did you end up selling it for versus how much did it cost?
I am moving overseas next month and am desperate to sell my dress. I have put it up on a few websites in Australia and have contacted consignment stores but have had no luck selling.
I purchased my Demetrios 1432 for $3300 in Feb of this year (delivered in June) reduced from $4300. I wanted to sell it for $1500. How much do you think i should actually list it for?
Any help would be greatly appreciated!

It took me about 2-3 months I believe and I sold it for about 35% of its original value. I could have tried to hold out for more, but the longer I waited the older the style would be and the less I would get for it anyway.
I think your price sounds reasonable for an online purchase considering its original value. For a consignment store youll have to find one that has a higher end clientel as well as other higher end merchandise. you dont want to be the most expensive item in the store. Youll only serve to make the other items look like a better value and your chances of success will decrease.
