Frequently Asked Questions
What is a Wedding Flea Market?
The Wedding Flea Market is a unique resale event where newlyweds sell their leftover wedding items to those getting married. Newlyweds see a return on the large investment they just made and de-clutter their house full of items that will not be used again. Those getting married will be able to purchase decor and more for their upcoming weddings and get them at great prices. It is never the same event twice and there are usually many different wedding-themed items to choose from. 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?
Locally, we host two large events in the spring and fall at the Monroeville Convention Center. More events are being added for 2018!
Do you host events outside of Pittsburgh?
Currently all of our events are located within the Pittsburgh area, however, we are actively seeking out additional areas. Want the Wedding Flea Market in your city? Contact us!
What is involved to be a seller?
All it takes is a small fee to rent a space at one of our events and you are in! You receive a booth space, one covered rectangular table, and two chairs. You are responsible for pricing and setting up the look and feel of your space. Our events are very popular, so that means hundreds of people will be shopping! Price your items fairly - price them to move!
How do I rent a booth space?
Once event links are active, you can sign up to be a seller. 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/crafter/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 150 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, so shoppers often come early to wait in line. They want to beat the crowds to get inside sooner. Regardless of what time people arrive, everyone is guaranteed entry. We will be implementing some new changes soon. Also, we usually have a really great food truck available while you wait.
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?
Occasionally, but costs more. 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?
