Subject: The problem with buying a 2-3 year old dress...
In reply to: That fits well 's message, "There are so many 2-3 yr old dresses listed for sale used, you can likely snag one for a song. Personally, I'm selling 2. Both lovely, one is sequins so more dated. Both listed for several hundred $ & no bites. Find 2-3 yr old used." on 07:52:59 08/14/17 Mon

Most are still priced above 1K. But say I purchase a 3 year old dress for $900. My daughter wears it for a year and then outgrows it. Then I attempt to sell a 4 year old dress. Even if I price it at $500, there is little chance I'll be able to sell it again. Very few dancers out there in the market for 4 year old dresses. We have advanced beginners and novices buying brand new Gavin's, after all.So I'm out $900 for one year of having a dress. On the other hand, if I buy a new rising star or Taylor for $1800, my DD outgrows it in a year, it still has value. I can probably sell it for 1400-1500. And I invest in a new dress. That's why there is such a glut of dresses on the market. Resale value on a 1 year old dress is good, marginal for a 2-3 year old dress, and nil on a 3-4 year old dress.
