This Sale is Going to be Huge

by Jenny Bryde 2. March 2015 00:43

We are approaching a level of giddyness for this year's Bride and Groom Garage Sale.  We have always advertised by word of mouth, and our attendance has grown each time we've had the sale - both in number of sellers and number of attendees.  This year is gearing up to be an epic sale!  We are more than a month away, and at this point we have maxed out our number of available tables and are only accepting sellers on a waiting list.  Whoa!  That means we have 55 tables of sellers who will fill the Golden Leaf Convention Center from wall to wall!  This sale is going to be amazing!  

When registering, each seller has to describe what they will be selling, and we are going to have a huge variety of items available!  Dresses, linens, china, stationery, jewelry, vases, silk flowers, baskets, alters, and more!  Oh my!

If you are still hoping to be a seller, you can still register for the waiting list.  As we approach the sale, I will be in contact with all registered sellers.  If anyone backs out, we will open the table up to the next person in line.  

For those of you hearing of our sale for the first time and wondering what all the hullabaloo is about, let me sum it up in a nutshell:  Our sale makes it possible for married couples to sell their gently used and new wedding items in a garage sale style only on a massive scale.  We fill the Golden Leaf Convention Center in Davenport (next to Miller Time Billiards), and those who are getting married can come in and shop the sale to find amazing deals on beautiful items.  Everyone walks away satisfied!  It's such a fun event!

Details:  The sale is on Saturday, April 11th from 10-noon at the Golden Leaf Convention Center in Davenport.  The cost to shop the sale is $5 per person, and kids are free.  You are welcome to be in line before the sale, but the doors won't open until 10am.  There is an ATM on site if needed, and most sellers will be accepting cash only.  We encourage you to bring your own bags, boxes, or other means of carrying out your finds.  We've even had people bring wagons before!  

This event is a lot of fun for your family, fiance, or wedding party!  Come and shop our sale which wraps up in time for everyone to go get a nice lunch and enjoy the rest of their Saturday!  

We hope to see you there!  Please contact me if you have any questions about the sale - jenny@qcweddings.com

A Heads Up for the Next Bride and Groom Garage Sale!

by Jenny Bryde 9. September 2014 01:15

Quite a few of you have asked, so I'm sharing our the details we know about our next Bride and Groom Garage Sale!  This is a super fun and useful event for anyone who is getting or has gotten married recently.  The idea is that recently married couples bring their gently used and new left over items from their wedding to sell.  Couples who are getting married can then come shop the sale to find great deals.  Sellers get rid of a lot of stuff that would only be in storage, plus they make some cash back!  Shoppers save a ton of money by not having to buy these items at full retail price.  

What kinds of things can you find at the sale?  Anything and everything!  Decor, vases, flowers, fabric, dresses, jewelry, beauty products, stationery, signs, and more!  

Our next sale is going to take place in April next year, so be on the look out both on QCWeddings.com and on our Facebook page for details once we approach that date.  If you're interested in being a seller, we will have information posted in January, so stay tuned!  We are so excited!!

2014 Bride and Groom Garage Sale - Cancelled :(

by Jenny Bryde 19. April 2014 08:39

After a low turn out for seller registration this time, we are cancelling this year's Bride and Groom Garage Sale which was scheduled for next Saturday at the Golden Leaf Center.  Normally at this point, we have between 50 and 60 sellers preregistered for their tables, and at this time, a week ahead of the sale, we only have 8 tables.  We believe in this event which is near and dear to our hearts, and we only want to host a sale that is beneficial for both sellers and shoppers.  We think this was just an off season due to a number of factors, but we love this event and certainly plan on continuing to host this in the future! 

Can everyone do us a favor and spread the word? Sellers who had registered have been contacted, but we need to get the word out to those who wanted to shop the sale that the event has been cancelled. Please share this information with anyone you know who was planning to attend.

We have not set a date yet, but this event will be held again next year. Registration for the 2015 April Sale will start this fall, so stay tuned!
