I have sold pretty much everything I have listed on local online classifieds (I did not want to deal with shipping). I list pretty much everything at 1/2 of the original price, and it all goes pretty quickly. I have sold table number frames, overlays, aisle runner, etc

@CaraMia10: Err, I’ve also been meaning to ask what are kissing balls for a while, if any Bees could enlighten me… Everytime I see those two words I have a giggling Beavis and Butthead reaction, then I remind myself I’m 35 and refrain from saying anything.

 @twocatcupcake: I’m really hating the dress selling process with all the flaky people out there. Hope you have better luck!

What color are the tablecloths?  And what did you use the slices of tree trunk for?  We are planning on doing a fall wedding and live in MT so slices of tree trunk will inevitably find their way into the reception decor ha ha.

I wasn’t really able to sell that kind of reception stuff but was able to sell my shoes, crinoline, veil and dress!

I have sold some things on WB classifieds, others on my local Craigslist site. Just be really careful meeting people from Craigslist. I would recommend meeting people in a public place, -a coffee shop or something like that.  Make sure to keep yourself safe!  I think that if your tablecloths are in good condition, and sashes, those types of things will sell.  complete centerpieces may not, but if you have vases, candles listed, I think you will likely sell them.  Wedding gowns are tougher to sell I think, because styles change so quickly -so the manufacturers will sell new styles for the next season!  I think the smaller items, ring bearer pillow and flower girl basket you may want to try to sell those things together. You may sell the kissing ball/pomanders and vintage bottles and tree trunk slices because they seem to be the “in” things. I wouldn’t be too discouraged!  Best of Luck to you 🙂

You might want to check out my article, “How to Sell Your Wedding Stuff,” for tips on selling.  Of all our stuff, the only things I’m having trouble reselling are a) one of the two wedding dresses, b) one of the two veils, and c) strawberry cocktail mixer.  Dresses are tough to sell in general, since people tend to want to try them on before buying.  In our case, it is also an issue that the dress was hemmed for someone who is 5’1″, so many brides would be unable to use it.  And we don’t know the exact style number of the dress.  However, wedding decor is typically relatively easy to sell.
