Planning a wedding? Seriously, you don’t need all the stuff. Or at least you don’t need all the new stuff.
915 Monmouth’s “Junk in the Trunk” lets veteran brides sell their gently used wedding items—think table décor, accessories, and Pinterest-y props—to the soon-to-be-wed crowd. Monmouth’s studio members will be on hand to style the items, offer ideas, and, if you give them a heads-up prior to the event, help you hunt down that retro-glam centerpiece you’ve been coveting.
Purchase a VIP pass for $30 and shop 30 minutes before the doors open (and get a swanky Swag Bag full of goodies). Or for $15, you can just get the VIP tickets for early admission. Now you can use all that money you saved to splurge on cool gifts for your bridesmaids. July 27, General admission $5, 12–3 p.m., 915 Monmouth, Newport, 915monmouth.com/junk-in-the-trunk
