Frequently Asked Questions
What is The Wedding Flea Market?
The Wedding Flea Market (also known as The Pittsburgh Wedding Flea Market) is for the newly engaged and the newly wed. We offer a bride-to-bride opportunity for buying and selling of wedding-related items. This simply means that new brides sell their wedding items to soon-to-be brides in a fun and vendor-free atmosphere. It is never the same event twice and there are usually many different wedding-themed items to choose from. Our markets offer a spacious, clean venue with easy access, plenty of parking, over 100+ brides - all in one place for a safe and convenient shopping experience. We are the original and we are the largest!
Is this a bridal or wedding show?
No, we are a wedding resale event only. There are no wedding vendors or businesses.
How long have you been hosting events?
The concept began in 2012 with the Facebook buy/sell group. The first wedding flea market event was held in January, 2015.
How often do you host an event?
We currently host two large events a year, both being held at the Monroeville Convention Center in the spring and fall. We are always looking for other opportunities to host additional events as well.
Do you host events outside of Pittsburgh?
Currently all of our events are located within the Pittsburgh area. However, we are always seeking out additional venues to host events outside of the area. If you have an idea for a perfect venue or area, contact us and let us know!
What is involved to be a seller?
We offer you the opportunity to rent a booth space to sell the beautiful things from your wedding, so that you can make back some of the money you spent on your special day. You receive ample booth space, one covered rectangular table, and two chairs. You would be responsible for setting up your space, pricing and selling your wedding items. Our events are very popular, so that means hundreds of brides-to-be will be shopping! Chances are, there is a bride out there looking for a similar style!
How do I rent a space to sell my wedding items?
Once event links are active, you can sign up. Please go to the event section for information and pricing.
Do you take any profit from my sales?
No, you keep 100% of your profit! We are not a consignment company.
I am a business owner/have a small or side business. Can I rent a space?
Unfortunately, we do not allow any businesses, wedding professionals, crafters, artisans, etc., to rent a space in our markets at this time.
What items will be for sale?
Because there are new sellers at every event, items can vary. Rustic has been very popular recently, but there are many other themes and colors represented. Some items that are often for sale include: centerpieces, dresses, lanterns, candles/votives, place card holders, signage, various vintage pieces, artificial flowers, and so much more. No two events are alike.
How many sellers are at each event?
Our events boast the largest number of sellers anywhere! At the Monroeville Convention Center, we average around 140 sellers.
Who sets the item pricing?
Individual sellers set their own prices.
I hear that people wait in line to get into your events. Do I have to arrive early to get in?
Our events are very popular and people will come early to get in line. Since the style of the event is bride-to-bride selling/shopping, everyone wants to make the most of their shopping experience so they will come early to be sure they are one of the first ones inside. Regardless of what time people arrive, everyone is guaranteed entry.
Is there a place to try on dresses?
Yes, we have fitting rooms available at each event.
How much does it cost to purchase an admission ticket?
Costs vary per event and will be listed on the event links. Attendees under the age of 16 do not pay an entry fee, nor does anyone who is over the age of 65.
How do I get a ticket to attend?
Ticket sales are done completely online. All information can be found in the event section.
Do you take admission at the door?
Yes, but it is an additional $5. We recommend buying in advance. Our admission ticket link is always active on the day of the event in case you decide to attend last minute.
Do you offer refunds on tickets or tables?
Booth and ticket purchases are non-refundable, unless the event is cancelled.
Who do I contact if I still have a question?
