"Twenty two vases for sale. They are 4 3/4 inches tall and 5 1/4 inches in diameter. They were used once for the centerpieces at our wedding."
$65 from a craigslister. i would definitely finagle a bit ($50 oh hello) and use these for centerpieces. because they're small, they'd work better as a centerpiece for a long table rather than round. tight bunches of same-colored carnations come to mind.
"1500 fake red rose pedals for $10."
craigslist is such an amazing resource. and over the course of when i actually start planning for a wedding, i think i'll end up collecting a bunch of hunk of a junk from random sellers. oh, and don't forget to hunt the services section for photogs or even caterers too.
hey, come to think of it, my rug is from craigslist. and so is my desk. and so is my couch. and so is my dining table and coffee table. and so is my apartment. basically, if it weren't for craigslist, i'd be homeless and furnitureless. hm.
