  • highly doubt you will get that. Clothes from the 80s dont sell for very much.

  • Try selling it on Ebay as "vintage". I'd start the price at $9.99 plus shipping.

  • I would look on Etsy and Ebay for similar dresses, you may even find the same dress (I've found some of my 80's clothes on Etsy). Type in Vintage and the designers name and wedding dress and see what comes up!!! You might even check a local resale shop, they may be able to help you price it.

    Good luck1

  • I doubt that you will be able to sell it at all. Since I can't see it I can't tell anything about style or cut but it is probably very dated and even if someone wanted vintage they would not be willing to pay more than maybe $50. and I seriously doubt that much.

  • No one's going to want it.
    Not only that, but sometimes when you take those things out of preservation you'll find that the underskirts, etc have been cut out to get them to fit in the pretty little box.

  • Try Ebay or Etsy
