I bought candelabras (15 of them) , candlestick holders (60), and LED battery taper candles (120) for my wedding. In total I spent almost $1400 on all of this. My florist said that she loves them so much that she would buy them from me after the wedding. I was going to sell them on here afterwards, but if she would buy them, it would really save me the hassle of trying to ship these. She said that she would pay half of what I paid for them. Doesn’t this seem waaaay too cheap? I am renting a few items from her, which i know how much she paid for them, because she made a comment about going to Ikea for it, and she is charging 1/3 of the price of the item to rent. I don’t think that all of the items are only worth $700, after only being used once. How much do you think I should ask for all of the items? What is fair in your mind? I have attached pictures of the candelabras and candlesticks. Thanks!

those are gorgeous. i’d say an even $1000 is good.

Definitely counter-offer! You can always say you have nother offer for whatever price you want, but since you’d have to ship to that "person" you’ll offer it to her at the same cost or something. I don’t think 1/2 is fair at all!

Where did you get your led taper candles? Are you willing to sell them and ship them to Canada? If so how much woul dyou charge for them? I’ve been trying to find them online because I can’t find any up here. Please contact me with a price. Thank you

THey are so beautiful! If they are great condition (as Im sure they are just after one use)
I would say to sell them to her for $1,050 or $1,000 – that is 25% off for only being used once…. she will make that money back after just a few rental uses.

Yeah I don’t think half right. Shes a business woman obviously, so she is going to try to get the best price possible. I think $1000 is a fair price, but nothing less than $900. She is going to be continuiously making a profit renting them so i think she should be willing to invest a higher price.

Yea, especially since you are renting items from her as well, I would either call a deal and say that you won’t pay to rent her items and sell yours for 700 or just sell yours for an even 1000. Its great she is offering to pay, because you may not find someone willing to buy everything together elsewise.

I have to dissent here and say that I think half is fair (though no harm in counter-offering). That’s more than I expect to get out of most things I’m going to resell after our wedding. I think most items are like new cars — they lose half their value as soon as you drive them off the lot! 😉 Also, it might be difficult to find someone to buy them who’s willing to pay the shipping (they look pretty heavy) and you’ll have some expenses in buying packing materials.
