    Selling the Wedding Dress

     Our houses can become full of keepsakes that connect us to memories of happy times. Sometimes for our present happiness, we have to weed through these and declutter or sell things for extra funds.

    One of our readers is doing that and needs advise. Can you help?

     

    I just got married last weekend and I am selling my wedding dress. Can you help?

    I donated mine to a charity that takes used wedding and prom dresses and gives them (as is or renovated, as needed) to needy teens for school dances.

     Perhaps a high-quality consignment shop. An ad in the paper might also bring responses, given the price of wedding dresses.

    I agree, Craigslist! If you can upload a picture, all the better. Make sure you highlight the features. We got my daughter's dress from Craigslist because it had the lace and Swarovski crystals we wanted. I applied them to the dress I was making for her. You might also try Etsy or Ebay or the classifieds on PatternReview.com

    www.craigslist.org

    but I see others beat me to it and suggested it already

    great site though

    i also recommend the higher end consignment stores but you may not get near what you paid for or want for it...
