Hi everyone!

I have finally got round to sorting the stuff out from my July wedding! Keen for quick sale now it is all back in my small flat so priced low for quick sales. Collection is from London TW9 (unless otherwise stated), or I can arrange for the items to be posted (at extra cost). Alternatively, I can arrange for collection from the areas of Southampton or Portsmouth in the new year when we are next in the area, so only if you are in no massive rush. 

 

Jam Jars used as vases: 58 in total. They are a variety of shapes and sizes all collected by myself bought from the supermarket originally holding food such as jam, pickles, cooking sauces etc. There are 21 wrapped in lace as in above picture, 29 plain ones, and 8 that I spray painted light gold/champagne colour as in the below picture. These are also currently located in Portsmouth and are collection only, but I can move them to London in the New Year if anyone wants them and isn't in a rush. 

"Just Married" garland - £2

 

Mini log slices x65 - made by my dad using a fallen tree in our garden (silver birch I think). They are cut at an angle and have a slot sawn in the hold up stationary at the perfect angle. I used them for my placenames, but also for my table menus/guest book, social media and other signs. Being handmade, there are of course minor differences in size and the pattern of the wood - but they looked beautiful and got great reviews. 50p each.

Big log slices - again handmade by my dad and again, being handmade, they differ slightly in size/shape/pattern of the wood but nothing terribly noticeable. These were made from a different tree (I will confirm tomorrow when I see my dad) but they have a very slight red tone to them. They have been sanded down and well cared for. They were made about a year ago now so are getting some cracks in them and the outer bark is mostly gone but the layer underneath is beautiful anyway and the cracks add to the rustic-ness of them. When I was looking for these, I just couldn't find any that were of a decent size and they just looked puny, so my dad made them nice and chunky for me. They are about 8 cm tall and 30 cm diameter (+/- 1cm either way for slight impact roundness). Nice and heavy, solid. There are 8 for sale, and I would like £8 each - when I was looking (18 months ago now) I couldn't find these for less then £15-20 each so this is a real bargain. You can see them in most of the above pics as used on ym day, but here are some pics I took of 3 of them yesterday as in their current condition:

 

 

Beautiful Betsey Johnson "Tee" heels. I wore them for only about 2 hours on a wooden dancefloor and not worn outside - therefore very minimal wear on the sole as in below pic. US size 7, approx. UK 5. I normally wear a 5.5 and they were slightly tight on me so pretty accurate sizing. I would keep them and wear them forever if they weren't too tight, as they are the most gorgeous shoes! So I would say they would be perfect on a true size 5 - my feet are just a little big for most 5's. The heel is approx. 4 inches. Bought online for £70, currently available on Amazon for £64 + £7 postage. I cant find them any cheaper than that elsewhere so a bit of a bargain at £40. Sold in original Betsey Johnson box (which is lovely in itself!).

2 gold napkins with napkin rings: placed at the bride and groom place settings but we never got around to using them. They are 47x34cm. In a very light gold sparkley material. £2 for both.

Gold table runner: sparkley but not sequin 200cm long. Seen here under my guest books. Same material as the napkins. £2

Gold tray - 41cm x 19cm. Useful for keeping stuff tidy at the wedding, I used it to keep the pens, fingerprint tree ink and cleaning wipes on. £2

 

Mini woodland animals spray painted in champagne gold x11. 6 are larger in size at approx. 6 cm tall (2 donkies, a pig, a cow and 2 goats). 5 are smaller in size at 3cm tall (2 cows, a horse, a pig and a chicken). I used these amoungst my table centre pieces for my woodland themed wedding. £5

Umbrellas - always good to have for that just in case! Thankfully not needed on my day so remain unused. 8 are clear, and 3 white. £3 each.

 

 

 

Lastly - glowsticks!!! a pack of 100 and I believe they have connectors so they can be put together into necklaces/halos etc. Bought in June for my wedding and absolutely gutted we completely forgot to open them so they are sealed! £8.

Hi Jenni8, I'm interested in a few of your items, and can collect from London, will PM you with the list. 

Love your shoes by the way, I bought some Betsey Johnson shoes too for my big day - were they comfortable for the whole day & dancing etc?

I only wore them for 2 hours during the reception before giving up and going shoeless! But that was because they didn't fit me, as opposed to them being uncomfortable so my fault completely!

Oh OK fair enough, I am also planning on changing to flat shoes for the dancing to be honest, but need to make sure I try my dress with and without heels... 

Anyway let me stop distracting you from the sale post

Argh those are the shoes I have been eyeing up! I am a usually a 4.5 (wear a 4 on some, wear a 5 on others, love it when I find 4.5's haha), so do you think these would be ok? I'll keep following as not pay day till next week but if still available I may just have to get them!

Petals -  used to line my aisle (8 rows with a gap in the middle) and they were just the ones off amazing that are dirt cheap (I think I paid £3 for 2000). They were all collected up after (so I assume that they are all there thought I'm not counting!) and my dad has told me that they are clean etc. I just want £1 for them - it will save you the time consuming task for having to separate them if you bought them from amazon 

Wicker hearts - small size (approx. 14cmx14cm). Spray painted white and unused for my wedding. There are 6 and I'd £3 for them.

Tbh yes I do think the chances that they will fit you are good! I'm happy for you to come and try them on no obligation? Funnily enough I am exactly the same, 5 in some, 6 in others. For this brand I would go the upper size (should have got a 6!)

Bridezilla

Could I have 10 of the large gold and 10 of the small gold jars? Going to use them on my cake table. Could I also have first refusal on the sequin table cloth? Any chance you have a close up of the colour?

I had read reviews that said they could be a bit narrow so was thinking I might need the 5 as well. Live no where near so can't try on but I'd be happy to take the small risk anyway if they can be posted

Someone else has enquired about all those things but I'll let you know if that doesn't go through.

OK lovely. Well send me a PM if you want them - I just did an estimate of the postage and it was £4 for Royal Mail 2nd class signed for.

Thanks Jenni, would you post the petals and hearts? Or whereabouts in Portsmouth is collection? Are you planning on selling the bigger hearts at all? Thanks Kelly 

Of course  I will work out postage for you tomorrow, but I should think it will around £3-4. Collection could be from Portchester anytime after 6th Jan as that is when I am down next and can bring them with me. The bigger hearts have sold already sorry sweet.

Quoits and Croquet. Will post pics when I can. Would like £3 for Quoits and £10 for Croquet. Will let you know condition but they were new for the wedding so I hope they're in good used condition. Not sure re. postage as the box for croquet is a little larger - do TW9, Portsmouth or Southampton work for you for collection?
