I’m currently at the linen stage of planning and here’s the debate: rent or purchase?
Originally I was just going to purchase. Most rentals are about the same price as just outright buying what I need, but I have a quote from a vender I found on this very site, that has very competitve prices and making me reconsider renting.
If I purchase, I will have to launder and make sure everything is pristine for any buyers I can sell to. However, I see a lot of linens here selling for pretty much what I would pay for them, so I may be able to recoup a lot of my cost and hopefully pass on some savings to a fellow bride.
However, the ease of just throwing dirty linens in a sack and returning them to the rental company is very tempting, and can I really beat her price by trying the resale route?
Does anyone have any experience reselling linens they’ve purchased and used? Would you do it again? Was the expense and return worth the hassle?
