Selling & Swaping Wedding Decor--Master List--

I know that a lot of us have promised this or that to different people and I know for myself, I can't keep track of who is getting what, so I thought we could use this thread as a "Master List"

My wedding is Sept 16, 2011 and I will have the following:

140+ white pencil starfish
Teal & Orange paper lanterns---the orange are promised out, but can't recall who?
Various seashells
Glass Cylinders
Clear strand lights
My sanity--but I think I lost that a loooooong time ago :)
Glass votive holders

If I think of anything else, I will add it later. 

Again, my apologies for not remembering who said they wanted what :(

    Does any one want to share these: http://raleigh.craigslist.org/for/2517559171.html

    I would totally go in on these with some one.  $200 isn't in our budget for beach decor though.

    My wedding isn't until next summer so I don't know how much stuff I should be buying right now.  BUT, I will be interested in table linens, string lights, table cloths, star fish, sand dollars, and sea shells. 

    I'm collecting a TON of wine bottles that I'll be using in my centerpieces as candle holders and vases and looking to sale/give away after our wedding.  I'm also collecting thrift store china that I'll probably try to sale after our wedding too.  And I just bought 150 water goblets off of craigslist for pretty cheap that I'd want to re-sale.

    @ OBX, Do you have pics of your glass cylindars?  Or a description?

    I can tell you @OBX, I'll need cylinders, seashells, clear lights, and starfish
    and
    @Mpar, I LOVE your weave bag, I'd like to know how many you'll have.  I also am interested in your blue napkins and linens, although I wont know until about your wedding date what size linens I will need.

    Although, I will happily defer to someone with a closer wedding if they will resell to me.

    I'm arriving Sept 18th (hopefully meeting up with OBX) and the wedding is Sept 23rd.

    @OBX, we discussed the lights, and I'd pass them on to jlbeucke somehow.  Still on for that?
    I also may want your cylindars, seashells and starfish that I'd pass on to Jlbeucke, since she's mentioned those with you before.  Pictures?   Jlbeaucke, are you up for that?  :-)

    GREAT idea for the master list.

    I will also have short 3" square vases for anyone who wants them afterwards (using them in groups of 4 as 1/2 of our centerpieces).

    I may have all of the blue linens sold to a girl in Syracuse.  We'll see.  I'll let you know about the bags, and where you can order more if you like.

    Yes, I can get you the lights and more than happy to pass along the cylinders, shells and starfish (which Mpar shipped to me from CO....she is awesome!!).  I mainly have the white pencil starfish but I will also have some of the sugar ones, the typical tannish ones you see. I am writing myself a post-it-note right NOW to take pics tonight :)  My mom (boderboo) has the cylinders at home and she is going to measure them tonight....neither of us can remember the sizes right now.

    MARIA---do you happen to have a pic of the starfish on hand?  If not, that's ok :)

    I just love how all of us are swapping & sharing out decor....I hope this will continue with future brides to come!  :)

    Christy----Our wedding is 1 day apart from one another and I believe Flippo is on the 18th!!! :)  Ohhh, I'm 9/16/11 btw

     

  • edited December 2011
    OBX- We're getting close! I wish we were a few days apart so we could share some decorations, but I think that'd be waaaaay too stressfull the morning of!

    Side note-  We also have 20 120" white round table linens that will be up for grabs after Sept 17.  And 1 90" for a sweetheart table. 
    We also have 6 pieces of bamboo that are about 10ft each.
