    Yes the pint bottle of blumers is meant to be in the pictures to give a sense of scale image

    Item 1 - lovely purple roses

    Purple flowers, 126 in total, 21 bunches of 6, but they are just tied together with wire. 

    As you can see in the pictures they each just under 3 inches wide.

    I did not use these ran out of time and room in the two cars we took to the venue,originally had 24 bunches but I used 18 for experimenting and some of those made it to the venue.

    Looking for £60 plus postage at £13.

    I am willing to spilt the lot but the postage will still be £13 because they wound need to be sent in a box and I don't want to squash them too mush in the post.

    They have a covered stem so unless you want to strip them I don't recommended using them with florist foam but they look good tied together or as separate stems.

    Clear jar is a 500ml sainsburys mayo jar, the flower in the jar is one of the ones I used for experimenting, the stems are very flexible, one of my bridesmaids maid and oversized daisy chain style crown out of six of my experimental ones.

    2. Cheaper purple and cream roses

    Next lot of flowers - purple & cream fashion roses 60cm tall

    These are not as nice as the others

    Again I ran out of room in my car, I did take one box of each colour to the venue, and they looked great when my bridesmaids and friends opted to use them to do some extra decorations in the reception room.

    I would not use them for bouquets, might use them to bulk out table decorations but I see these as filler flowers not feature ones!

    Looking for £12 for a box of 36, or £40 for all four, plus postage.

    Postage will be £13 if it is one box or 4 due to the length of the box, they are in the original suppliers box.

    Each box just has one colour in it I have 2 purple boxes and 2 cream, I really do not want to unpack any boxes to mix them, I found out the hard way with the ones I used but are not selling that they never all fit back in the box properly!

    Coltswolds85 has asked for 2 of these if no one wants all 5 I can split them, its just the p&p is going to be £13 for 1 or 5 they are such an awakward shape.

    ************************************************************************************************

    Item 3 - five wish trees / table centres

    I bought these off a bride on the forum, they are fab, a couple do have a bit of damage were the branches have been stretched a bit too far but this is at joints, and unles you know it is there you won't see it, the quily of them shows beacuse the colour under the top layer is also a creamy colour.

    They arenot your plain white trees you see in hobby craft the bride I got them off shipped them over from America because she wanted a more natural look.

    I am hoping for £60 for the lot,  without the beads or lights, p&p is going to be £13, I sound like a broken recorded but for the size parcel they will be that is the best price parcel force do.

    Size about 80cm tall and 40cm ish wide although you can do them wider or slimmer, they have a reasonable level of movement in the branches.

    I decorated them with strings of clear beads, I can pass on the ebay sellers details I got the beads off.

    If you want the lights they would be an extra £10, they are balloon lights but I loved the fact it was really hard to see the string between the leds.

    3A - big wishing tree 


     There is also one bigger tree about 115cm tall that goes with these hoping for £20 for that it does have some damage but nothing that a bit of superglue could not fix!

    p&p £13

    Herstory

    Have you considered using Collect + for your deliveries? you can track parcels with them and they are tons cheaper than parcel force

    Just an idea... hope it helps with your larger items

  • herstoryherstory Posts: 1,268

    Speccy4eyes thanks for the tip there are a few places near me, but the big stuff is bigger then their maximum size!

    I could use TNT if anyone wants a lot of stuff off me but otherwise it is not worth trekking out to the depot, arranging for any delivery firm to collect from me is always a real pain.

  • herstoryherstory Posts: 1,268

    That's all for tonight, I still have the hearts signs and some unworn Rachel Simpson shoes, just 4 identical pairs in different sizes to list!

    These are the shoes 

    http://shoelovesyou.co.uk/shop/belle-ivory/

    looking for £20, but that includes p&p they have only been tried on by my bridesmaids, for size they have been in their boxes in my living room ever since!

    I have them in a 4, 5, 6 & 7, as my bridesmaids are half sizes the bigger ones were a better fit (the 5 & the 7) for each, but we then went and bought some wedges in sliver for them to wear.

  • herstoryherstory Posts: 1,268

    I want to get it all listed now, but need to go to bed!

    6. Directional signs, 14 in total

    £5 plus £2.50 p&p

    3 x wedding

    4 x bar - one has sellotape on it, not much but to pull it off will damage the sign

    3 x toilets

    3 x party

    1 x this way

    I originally had 4 of each, I don't have a clue were the rest went! I will pop them back in 3 of the 4 original boxes to limit any damage the royal mail may do! Also by the time I have wrapped the lot it will be small parcel size.

    That's it for tonight there is more, and if you want more than one thing I will ask no more than £15 p&p unless you live outside the UK or want it the next day! image

    hearts on red twine

    photo frames 

    Wooden scoops - under offer

    metal tongs and scoops - under offer

    more wedding magazines then is reasonable, free if you are willing to collect them, I will count them up in the next few days.

    Florist blocks 16 to be collected and 10 long rectangular trays, not worth posting these for what they cost, but if you are happy to pick up then a £5 would buy them.

    7. Confetti Cones 40, Ivory with an embossed pattern - BRAND NEW, which is why they are still flat, I only made up the number I needed.

    Looking for £10 including p+p, 

    You will be getting 40 of the flat ones, the made up one is one I am keeping, please note confetti and ribbon are not included.

    They are already glued together (they came like that) you just have to squeeze/pop them into shape. I found curling ribbon the best thing to secure the top with.

    11. Card box

    I will be honest the box is battered but nothing a bit of tape can't fix, and you won't see it the satin  style cover. covers the lot, like a tissue box cover

    £5 including p+p, and the size of the box, even flattened means its a small parcel.

    The box has been flat packed
