To Sell or Not to Sell
I love my wedding dress. It is beautiful AND I got it on super sale at a foo-foo chi-chi la-la boutique store that I had no business being in when I was shopping for a wedding dress (when I told them my price range I was, ever so politely, marched past the dresses in the main show room to a narrow hallway where a small, sad, rack of dresses lived). The fact that my dress and I found each other was pure kismet! After all was said and done, it was priced at $1 under my budget. And it was love at first sight.
Fast forward several years and my beautiful dress now resides in a box in an attic. And there is no hope that it will ever see the light of day. (In all honesty, I would be hard pressed to tell you exactly where it is in the attic).
I have a son and another on the way, so I don't forsee that either of them will want it. Nor do I imagine that, in 20+ years from now, if/when my sons get married that their significant others will want my dress. So that leaves me with a beautiful dress in a box for now until eternity!
I've hung onto it this long because it is sentimental, however it isn't something that I am using and have no plans to use it in the future.
So this begs the question... to sell or not to sell?
