Ugh it’s taking me forever! I’ve sold larger items (thank God!), but the smaller items just don’t move?

I think it depends on how they are priced, honestly!  Most people are looking for a really good deal for 2nd hand items – if it’s priced fairly, it should move!

I think I had at least 10 people interested in my centerpieces – i sold them almost immediately to a bee! Those were really the only items i needed to sell though.

It’ll be very difficult for me to sell my wedding dress… I am creating and sewing my own dress! After the work I put into it, I don’t think I want to sell… But what if some weddingbee bride wants it after I post a picture? I won’t know until the time comes.

Around here, there is a twice yearly event called “The Wedding Garage Sale” where recently wed brides can sell all their wedding stuff. I think the JayCees put it on. Anyway, they have it at a hall, and brides can rent a table for $20, and people pay $5 to get in. The last one was in October and I scored some great decor stuff. I saw plenty of ladies selling their dresses, flower girl dresses, decorations, linens, silk flowers, and more. A few wedding dress places even rented space to sell their sample gowns. If your area doesn’t do this, maybe you could approach a charity with this idea as a fund raiser. Here, all the table and admission proceeds go to charity, and the brides get to keep all the money they make from selling their swag.
