Jeeze! Sorry you’re having this problem. I like to think of selling your gown as privilege because there may never be a demand for the gown that is being sold. I would think these sellers would be tons more attentive, even a quick email to say, “Sorry, SOLD!” or whetever message would be really helpful.

Have you ever posted an ad online?

Sometimes you just get fed up dealing with responses and have moved on in your life.

Do posters have the ability to remove their ad here on the bee once the item is sold?

If so, then I would hope they would do that- like on craigslist.

If not, maybe a suggestion to the powers that  be would be appropriate.

If posters can’t remove their own ads, then perhaps all ads should be removed after3- 6 months so people would know that the ads are reasonably current.

I’ve posted an ad online and still responded to every single person and it’s true – it SUCKS!  Plus you have people saying I’ll take it, I’ll be there at X time and you wait and they never come and it’s awful.  But, I feel like it’s still the decent thing to do to reply.  I only did an ad on craigslist for a couch and when it sold, you could delete it.  So that at least made it easier.

OK, I have posted a wedding gown for sale here on WB and a couple of other sites. First, I find that a lot of times notifications from WB and the other sites from potential buyers tend to end up in my spam folder. It might be that the seller just doesn’t realise that there is interest. Second, communication and a successful sale is a two way street. It is just as frustrating for the seller to have the interested party stop responding as it is for a potential buyer to be left in the cold! Ifyou don’t like the price or something changes, LET THE SELLER KNOW!!!

As it stands, my dress is still for sale!

I think the seller does actually have the option to make a status inactive or active. Sometimes if you look at the classifieds you can see inactive ads. They are in red letters when you go into the ad.
