I was trying to be thrifty and impulsively purchased a dress on ebay that 1-does not fit in size and 2- does not fit my style. The great is stunning and is a maggie sottero designer so I guess Ill just sell it and take a small loss, right…? Wrong!!!!! IT seems that the only people who have contacted me are the ones who are trying to scheme me. I actually had someone email me a fake pay pal “the funds are in your account” statement. Good thing I noticed that it was from the person’s email and not from pay pal! Everyone out there, please be carefull of such schemes. I am thinking of taking pictures of my gorgeous friend in a dress and posting them since I think my own frumpy pictures are just not doing the dress justice. I forbid myself from going dress shopping until I get rid of this one so I need help!
Girls, did anyone else find themselves in a similar situation? Anyone have any suggestions on what the best way to go about selling this dress? I have it posted on oncewed and recycledbride. Please share….

Have you tried looking on the Classifieds here to see if anyone is searching for your dress? I’m not sure how you priced the dress, but make sure that it is a competitive amount. You might not be able to get the amount that you paid for the dress.

I had my first dress listed on recycled bride, once wed, and preownedweddingdresses. I sold it (in just a few weeks!) on recycled bride. Of course after I sold it I forgot to remove the listing and got at least 10 more emails about it! Beware of scammers! I also listed on ebay but got no offers. You could try craigslist too and always check the “wanted” and “looking” sections. Good luck!

I sold three dresses on powd.cm even though I had it listed at all the other sites you mentioned. For some reason I always got the more serious inquiries from that site, and the most number of scammers from craigslist.
If you can afford to lose an additional 3.5% commission on the dress, Escrow.com is the most secure method for both buyer and seller. I found once I put something like “escrow.com only, no checks, no scammers!” on my ad I stopped getting the scam emails.
