  • Consigners get to shop early! Kid's don't stop growing! Sell their outgrown items, and get first pick on finding new ones!

How can you earn even more?!

  • Help at the sale! Volunteers can earn up to 70% on their sold items! Many volunteer shifts will even waive your consignor fee!
  • Reduce and Donate! Studies show that consignors that choose to reduce their items for our discount days, and donate their unsold items after the sale, sell 20-30% MORE! Watch this video to learn more!

PICK UP

Pick-Up Schedule:

Mon 4/1 at 4:00pm-6:00pm - Any item left at the sale after 6:01pm will be donated to our local charity partner. Sorry, NO EXCEPTIONS!

You have a choice!
After the event, you may donate your unsold items to our charity partner, A Place of Hope OR pick up your unsold items. If you donate items, you will be helping our local community + receive a donation slip for tax purposes with your check.

Pick up will be on Mon 4/1 at 4:00pm-6:00pm or you can help with the Sort Shift and bring your items home after sorting is finished. Pick up is totally painless as all items are sorted for you (how cool is that?).  You can be in and out quickly!

After pick up, all remaining items are donated to our charity partner. Sorry, no exceptions!

Tips From Superstar Consignors!

Bring your best! Be selective with the items you choose to consign. Remember, we inspect items to benefit both you and our shoppers. JBF has a reputation of offering a quality sale to the community.

Price to sell! Best priced items sell first. Price about 50-90% off what the item sells for in the stores, keep in mind the brand and condition of the item. Don't be afraid to review and lower the prices on your unsold items before the next sales event.

Secure all loose items and accessories! We can't sell an item without all of its pieces attached, so make sure any loose items are securely attached. We recommend using zip ties, tape, and baggies to help keep items together.

Participate in discount days! Consignors that reduce their items sell on average 60% more than those who don't! That's because their items are usually priced to sell, and shoppers take a second look at them on Half-Price day.

Volunteer! Consignors that volunteer add more money to their check and get to shop first! It's an opportunity to meet other budget savvy parents in your community and learn more tips and tricks to be a superstar consignor along the way!

Promote each sales event within your circle! On average it take 10 shoppers to sell 1 consignors items. Make sure you share the event at your child's school, daycare, church, work, sporting events, and anywhere else you can think of! Hand out flyers and free admission passes, share the event on Facebook, and participate in our consignor referral program.
