Okay! So I'm 18. I'm going to college in the fall and working a full-time, minimum wage job just isn't going to cover what scholarships and loans isn't (and my parents aren't pitching in). So my last ditch effort to get money is to sell my three one-of-a-kind prom dresses, in hopes they will help me out some.
I have made (okay, the first two with the help of my Mother and an Aunt) a prom dress out of Doritos bags
, one out of Pop tabs
and one out of Cardboard
. So you might have heard of me on here. Also, just Google "Doritos Prom Dress", "Pop Tab Prom Dress", "Cardboard Prom Dress" or "Maura Pozek" and there's news stories and blog posts and everything else (Mainly about the Cardboard one...That got me all the attention in the world including a Huffington Post article, an NPR interview and a ton of radio interviews around the country).
So...Broke, soon-to-be-college-student Maura needs money, and everyone has told me I could make bank if I ever sold my dresses. Some may remember last year when Ripley's Believe It Or Not
wanted to buy two of my dresses, but they offered too little ($450 for both, and they wouldn't budge), so I turned them down, and they haven't knocked on my door since.
I don't know what forum would be the best of which to sell my dresses? (Etsy or Ebay seem the most practical?) How would I price my dresses? All those other questions...
All three of my dresses have been worn exactly twice, once for Prom night, and once for an interview. I didn't sweat or anything in them, they didn't get ripped or stained (actually the Pop Tab one has some bbq sauce on a spot, but won't that come out?)...Basically they're in great condition!
Thanks in advance for any help! And here are pictures of each dress.

Again, THANK YOU!!!
