“Prom Dress Resale Shop” at RULH High

By Martha B. Jacob –

Looking for the perfect dress for the prom? Members of the Ripley-Union-Lewis-Huntington Spanish Club will be hosting a “Prom Dress Resale Shop” on Saturday, Feb. 25 from 9 a.m. to 3 p.m.
“We are inviting everyone out to see all the beautiful dresses we have to choose from,” said Linda Douglas, Spanish teacher at RULH High School.
“This will be our big fundraiser for the year. Eighteen members of our Spanish class have to raise $2,000 each to pay their expenses for a week-long trip to Puerto Rico, scheduled for June this year. This is big deal to these kids and they’re working hard to raise the money.”
Admission to the Prom Dress Resale Shop is free  whether buying or selling a prom dress or both. Dresses will be sold for significantly less than buying brand new.
“There are a few rules for this event,” Douglas said. “Anyone purchasing a dress must be accompanied by a parent or guardian. All sales are final and we can only accept cash.
“This is a great opportunity for people to sell their used prom dresses on consignment.  So anyone who would like to sell a dress or shoes or any kind of accessory, now it the opportunity.”
Douglas added that all the dressess should be in good saleable condition with no stains, rips or tears, be on a hanger and dresses are to be in a plastic bag for protection. It is possible that some minor repairs could be made if they are pointed out.
“We invite everyone to bring in as many dresses as they want,” she added.  “You must be registered with the Spanish Club and all the items can be dropped off at Ripley High School on Thursday, February 23 from 5 to 8 p.m. or on Friday, February 24 at 5 p.m.”
Shorter, semi-formal dresses such as homecoming dresses, jewelry and shoes are acceptable to bring as well and there is no limit on the number of dresses students can bring. The only charge is 10% of the selling price; seller sets the price for their items  the and keeps 90% of the proceeds from the sale.
“Names will not be on the dresses and the seller remains anonymous,” Douglas said. “We do ask however that leftover dresses be picked up at 4 p.m. on Saturday.”
Guidelines and rules for more details, please email questions to linda.douglas@rulh.us.
