Recycled Wedding Boutique

December 2017 Recycled Wedding Boutique Recap


To close out 2017, Oak & Honey Events and Baci Designer teamed up to host a Recycled Wedding Boutique at the John S. Knight Center on December 2, 2017.

Soon-to-be couples lined up outside the regular event, eager to get inside and shop new, slightly used, and vintage items to create the wedding of their dreams.

Oak & Honey Events created the Recycled Wedding Boutique, a flea market of sorts in 2014 for Northeast Ohio couples. An eco-friendly event planner, Oak & Honey Events invites newlyweds who are looking to off-load their wedding items to set up as vendors at the event in an effort to reduce waste from their weddings. The December event had more than 80 newlywed sellers!

Baci Designer creates timeless wedding invitations and coordinated details for engaged couples seeking an editorial look that is reflective of their style. Drawing from a love of style and a passion for making all things beautiful, Baci Designer is dedicated to making unique visions come to life - and this event is no exception.

Oak & Honey Events and Baci Designer send a "thank you" out to Mann & Wife Visual Storytellers for photographing the event! A sampling of event photos is below.

Recycled Wedding Boutique Seller Tips

The Recycled Wedding Boutique is happening on Saturday, November 10, 2018, at John S. Knight Center in Akron and we can't wait! Oak & Honey Events created the Recycled Wedding Boutique, a flea market of sorts, in 2014 for Northeast Ohio couples.

Today, we are sharing some tips with you about the best ways to sell your wedding decor, dresses, and more at the event!

  1. Pricing Items Everyone comes to the RWB looking for a good bargain. We encourage sellers to price their items at yard sale prices, which is roughly 20% of the retail price.  Make sure to clearly price all items individually with stickers and labels so transactions go smoothly.
  2. Bring Help - If you can, bring a helper with you since there is a rush of shoppers at the beginning of the event. One person can handle sales and the other person can wrap up and bag items. This HIGHLY recommended, given the crowds at the Recycled Wedding Boutique.
  3. Bring Wrapping and Bags -  It is helpful if you supply your own plastic bags, boxes, newspaper or other wrapping material for the items you are selling.
  4. Bring Change -  Many people go to the ATM right before and will be paying in 20s. If you have 10s, 5s and lots of 1s, you will be prepared. 
  5. Credit Card Payments -   If you're selling more expensive items, you might want to consider taking credit card payments.
