Frequently Asked Questions
What is CLT WEDDING FLEA?
Your opportunity to buy or sell wedding decor without the middle man. The CLT WEDDING FLEA is for brides planning their weddings and newlyweds just finished with their nuptials.
Is this a bridal or wedding show?
No, we are a "flea market" style event only. No businesses or outside organizations will be present. All of our "vendors" are simply regular people looking to get some of their old wedding gear out of their closets and into the hands of folks who can put it to good use again.
Looking to sell?
We offer you the opportunity to rent a table to sell beautiful things from your wedding so that you can make back some of the money you spent on your big day. We'll provide you with a table and the opportunity. You'll set your own price, handle all the selling (so bring change!) and set up. Our last sale had over 500 brides in attendance-- so you'll have a large audience to sell you items to and won't have to drive all around town to make sales like you would on Craigslist or Facebook buying/selling groups. Check out our SELLERS tab for more info.
Looking to buy?
VIP admission is from 10:00 am- 11:00 am and is $13 per person and must be paid in advance via eventbrite. VIP admission is capped at 100 people and is first come, first serve. YOU MUST have your eventbrite ticket to enter with VIP admission. General admission is from 11:00 am- 1:00 pm and is $5 per person at the door (must be paid in cash). Bills larger than $50 will not be accepted. Children under 12 are free. You'll be buying directly from the seller, so come with cash for purchases. At our last sale, admission lines formed around the building hours before the sale. Be sure to plan to come early for the best items, though later shoppers often enjoy further discounted prices. Visit our SHOPPERS tab to learn more.
How do I rent a space to sell my wedding items?
Check out our SELLERS tab. Tables are $40 (nonrefundable) and must be paid in advance via Eventbrite. You must reserve your table prior to the sale. Space is limited and will be provided on a first come, first serve basis. Please note that our last sale sold out of tables several weeks before the sale.
Do you take any profit from my sales?
No, you keep 100% of your profit! We are not a consignment sale.
What can I buy?
Items will vary. But expect a variety of new or very gently used wedding decor -- from table numbers to jewelry to cake toppers... and even dresses!
Who sets the item pricing?
Individual sellers set their own prices. While we are called a flea market, you should expect prices to be higher than those of a flea market-- but likely still more affordable than the bridal industry standard. Please note that CLT WEDDING FLEA is not liable for any prices-- again, these are set directly by the sellers.
Is there a place to try on dresses?
Yes, we have fitting rooms and full length mirrors available.
Can I sell my wedding dress/ mother of the bride dress/ bridesmaid dress/ etc.?
While we welcome wedding dress sales, we do want to note that that most dresses didn't sell at our spring sale. Of course, every sale will have different shoppers, but we find that the majority of shopping brides are hoping to buy wedding decor as opposed to attire.
How much does it cost to purchase an admission ticket?
VIP admission is from 10:00am- 11:00am and is $13.00. VIP admission first come, first serve and is capped at 100 people and you must purchase your VIP ticket via eventbrite prior to the sale. General admission is from 11:00 am- 1:00 pm and is $5 cash per person at the door. Cash is the only form of payment accepted. Bills larger than $50 will not be accepted.
I am a business owner (i.e. wedding planner, photographer, etsy shop, etc.) Can I rent a space?
We are a bride-to-bride sale only, so we do not allow businesses to rent tables. However, we do offer advertising packages to promote your business to over 500 brides. If you are interested, please email us at firstname.lastname@example.org
When is the sale?
The CLT WEDDING FLEA is January 26 from 10:00 AM- 1:00 PM at the Project 658 Building (3646 Central Ave, Charlotte, NC)
