We have a local Facebook yard sale site where people post all sorts of things they are selling. Currently there are a TON of prom dresses on there. Our yard sale site has thousands of members though. I'm sure they are not all that busy.

Just go to FB, type in the name of your town/city then the words "yard sale". It should pop right up.

This site allows you to sort dresses by price. Yes, some are very glitzy pageant dresses, but a lot are prom dresses used for appearances. I actually bought a dark plum suit off this site for $35, and I use it for job fairs and interviews.

Whatever you do, do NOT order from tbdress.com
The prices seem low for the quality of the dresses in the pictures. I ordered one and it never came, and another girl I know said hers came in terrible condition. Avoid at all costs!

Also a for the pageantresale.com - Love it!

Some of the prettiest dresses we have found is shopping at the Bridal stores. A lot of them know that teens will come in looking, and set up an area. But, even if not we have had luck at David's Bridal just by shopping their bridesmaid dresses and found beautiful ones there. A lot were on sale too!

Not prom, but I just got my dd13 a very cute 8th grade dance dress from Deb's for $65, and they had quite a few dresses.

My daughter is going to the junior Prom this year. We didn't want to spend a ton and checked all the department stores We got a very nice long gown at Deb's for $82. My daughter is a size 0/1 but the smallest they have is a 3 so I found a seamstress to adjust the one shoulder strap and cut about 8 inches off the bottom! That will be $33. So I am happy with the total. I also saw the same exact dress at Macy's for $89!
