None of WeddingBee’s searches are wll constructed to allow filtering etc.

You can try looking on your local Board as some bees do post there also.

Did you know that you can search all craigslist sites at the same time by going to   http://www.google.com

enter site:craigslist.org     then add what you are looking for   e.g cylinder vases

The results will show all craigslist sites with the item you are looking for.

I don’t know how to filter, and I’m not sure you can… But I buy stuff on classifieds from all over the place and shipping hasn’t been an issue. I’m in BC, and I’ve had things shipped from CA to GA. Sometimes with the money you’re saving its still worth it. Another thing I do, since I’m close to the border is have them ship to a US address and go pick it up. There might be a bordering city in the US near you that you could do the same thing (normally some cross border PO box company), might be an hour or so drive for you but again the savings I’ve got from the classifieds would be worth the drive. And if you’re not in a rush the brides I’ve worked with have been great as far as shipping options and doing it the most cost effective way.

The Classifieds are currently slated for a re-work by the tech team, the filter by location being one of the issues we definitely need to add! The best solution I’ve found is to use the search bar on the right and search, let’s say “dresses ottawa”, and when you get the results, click on the Classifieds tab to just see the Classifieds results. It’s not perfect, but it may help a bit for you!
