Some women love to hang on to their wedding dress. Perhaps they want to save it for a daughter, or perhaps they simply do not want to part with it. Others want to get something out of theirs, or have no reasons to hang on to it because they don’t want to have children. Some weddings never happen, making a dress more of a reminder of a failed relationship than anything else. If you want to unload your gown, sell wedding dress accessories and shoes too, look online for a huge pool of brides that may be looking for a bargain.
In order to sell wedding dress and accessories online, you have to reach those that want to buy. You could try seeing if someone on any of your social networks would be interested, but that is a long shot. However, there are plenty of great places online where brides are searching all of the time to see if they can find a deal on something they like. Not all brides looking for bargains are going to want what you have to offer, but there is going to be someone out there that will love what you have to sell. In order to find that person, list what you have in a few different places, but try them one at a time.
First, think about using an auction site like eBay. If you can find an auction site dedicated only to what you have to offer, that would be the best place. However, any big auction site can help when you want to sell wedding dress and accessories on the Internet. You usually have to option of using a ‘sell it now’ price or you can set a starting price and allow bidders to fight over it if they want it. If there is a certain amount you must have for it, you can set a reserve so that if that price is not met, your items will not sell.
If you do not want to mess around with setting up an account and dealing with an auction site, you still have other options when you want to sell wedding dress and accessories online. You can go to an online classified site like Craigslist and list what you have to sell. When you do this, you can list what you have to those in your local area, but think about listing in areas nearby that are not too far away. You can set your price, answer any questions via email, and then tell the buyer that they have to come pick it up. If you don’t want a stranger coming to your home, arrange to meet in a public area to complete the sale.
You can also go a totally different way if you want to sell wedding dress and accessories but don’t want to worry about the mechanics of doing so. You can find a consignment shop in your area that will sell the dress, shoes, and accessories with you. You can sell them as a package or each individually if you wish. They will do all the work for you and take a certain percentage of the sale once they have sold the items. This may take a little longer than the other ways of selling, but you get the items out of your house if you are short on space or if you simply do not want to look at them any longer.
