I just got married last weekend and we used 42 beautiful heart shaped 6 inch bowls with the floating candles as one of the center pieces. I'd like to maybe keep one or two for memory, but not 42 of them! I tired Craigslist, but nobody pays attention to the wedding stuff there. They are basically brand new and were only used once, so I don't want to throw them away. Any ideas of where I can sell them? Thank you.

Put them on ebay. They'll probably be picked up right away. The picture is great and should help you sell them quickly. Good luck and Congrats!
Check on Yahoo!Groups for a yard sale group in your area. I belong to one that covers my county called GC Yard sale. You post your item with the price you would like.
Facebook also has a Marketplace. You might try just putting them out in a yard sale-- advertise that you have wedding decorations. And in our area you can put up a poster in the local grocery store, which might be an option for you.

I have a lot of wedding things from my daughter's wedding that I need to sell. Is this a place where I can do that? If not, does anyone know where I can sell the excess things I have, like: vases, tulle, flowers, etc.
Try a local Thrift Store, eBay, or Craigslist. (09/27/2009)
Yes, I know the perfect site - bravobride. I sold almost all of my wedding leftovers on it. They have a section for reception and ceremony decorations on there. I sold my vases, lanterns, wedding sparklers, and pails that we had lining the aisle. Here's the link bravobride.com. Good luck! (09/27/2009)
I would suggest taking your used wedding decorations to a community market day. I have a stall at the markets once a month and I sell bits and pieces. Your local shire will give you details on where and when. Price your items, take a table and set out all decorations. Also, have a float about $40.00. The stall here is $10.00, I pay for my bay. You will love the interaction with people at the same time selling your items. Best of luck. (09/28/2009)
I recommend craigslist. craigslist.org
You can sell just about anything on there. That way you set up the time that people can come to your home to purchase the items. It's best if you photograph the items and list them. (09/29/2009)
Contact your local high school. They may be interested in the stuff for prom. They'd probably just offer one lump sum for all of it, or you could get a tax donation slip. (09/29/2009)
