1Can you tell me more about a Wedding Flea Market event?
The Wedding Flea Market is a unique wedding item resale event where newlyweds sell their leftover wedding items to those getting married. Newlyweds rent a space from us and sell their leftover items at great prices. Floral and rental companies with a lot of overstock can sell their leftovers too! Those soon-to-be wed purchase tickets to shop at our events.
We are the original and we are the largest!
2How long have you been hosting events?
We originated this concept in 2012 as a Facebook group and hosted our first wedding flea market in January, 2015.
3How many wedding flea markets do you have in per year?
4What items will be for sale?
Because there are new sellers at every event, no event is ever the same! Events are not season-specific. Often sellers have just had their weddings the previous season but that is not always the case. There is a variety of colors and themes represented at each event.
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.
5Who sets the item pricing?
Individual sellers set their own prices. We encourage and coach our sellers to price fairly.
6I hear that people wait in line to get into your events. Do I have to arrive early to get in?
We always describe it as "Bridal Black Friday".
Our events are very popular, so lines form early. Regardless of what time people arrive, everyone is guaranteed entry and everyone gets in quickly as soon as the doors open.
We now offer VIP tickets, which gives those shoppers a half hour early access!
7How 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.
8Do you host events outside of Pittsburgh?
We will be starting in 2019! Want the Wedding Flea Market in your city? Contact us
9Is there a place to try on dresses?
Yes, we have fitting rooms available at each event.
10How do I get a ticket to attend?
Ticket sales are done completely online. All information can be found in the event section
11How 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 (ID required for those over 65).
We offer more than just access to wedding items at great prices for that price. We bring in food trucks, artisans, DJs, a photo booth and more to enhance your experience. We want you to have fun and leave happy and with your hands full!
12Do you take admission at the door?
Yes. After the event progresses for a bit, the admission price decreases.
13When is the best time to shop?
Items are first come, first served. Peak shopping is the first hour to hour and a half. As the day progresses, the item variety will start to decrease.
If you decide to come later, you may want to consider buying at the door as the admission price decreases as time goes on.
14How much will I make as a seller?
Sellers average $300 - 800! Some have made over $1000! It comes down to how much you have leftover from your wedding, types of items, etc. And---PRICE. You HAVE to price items to move! If items are priced too high, they will not sell. Shoppers are coming for a bargain!
15What is included in the seller price?
Since we currently hold most events at the Monroeville Convention Center, you are given a 10 foot by 10 foot space, a draped backdrop, 2 six tables and chairs. You can upgrade to a linen and skirt for your tables for an extra cost. For added savings, you can cover them on your own.
16What is the cost to be a seller?
Costs can vary depending on event, but currently it is $55 at the Monroeville Convention Center.
17I am a business/side-business/crafter, can I participate?
We are not a wedding show, but are incorporating a very limited number of screened, interactive wedding-only vendors and a small selection of artisans.
Please contact us for more details.
Unless you are one of these selected businesses or artisans, NO other businesses are permitted. No MLM businesses are ever accepted into our events. Sorry!
