Q: What is the half price sale?

A: Our consignors can choose to reduce their items to 50% off on Saturday. Most consignors choose to do this since they want to sell their items. Those items will be marked (without a star) for reduction so it's clear which ones are half price all day Saturday.  (remember: NO star = 50% off!)

A: Yes. We accept cash, checks, Visa, Mastercard and Discover

 Q:  Can my children come shop with me?

A:  At any time we are open to the public, children are welcomed!  Please come prepared because there are TONS of shoppers and sometimes the line to check out gets long.  We do not have food concession sales open in the event.  *Insider Secret* If you can try to have someone watch the kids.  Most parents find that they can concentrate and find better deals without the little ones help.

Q:  How often do you have this sale?

A:  Twice a year, once in the Spring and once in the Fall.

CONSIGNOR FAQs:

Q: How does consigning work at JBF?

A: JBF is able to pay you 60% on your items that sell (70% if you also volunteer). There is a $10 consignor fee that will be deducted from your check before we mail it to you. You decide how much you want to sell your items for, prepare the tags on our free and easy tagging website, bring them to the sale and put them on the selling floor, and we do the rest. We provide all of the racks and tables to hang and display your items, do the advertising, sell your items, and send you a check about 2 weeks after the end of the sale.

Q: Who is eligible to consign?

A: Anyone can consign with JBF! It's easy! Once we open registration for our event, you can sign up as a consignor. Check out the "Sell" page. It has all the info you need to consign with us! 

Q: What are the consignor percentages?

A: Consignors make 60% of your sold items (a $10 consignor fee will be deducted from your check to help cover the expenses of the event). If you volunteer during our sale, you make an extra 10% on your items.  We have special Team Leaders who are very dedicated to JBF and even make up to 80% and get a private shopping time.

Q: What types of hangers do you accept?

A: We accept plastic or wire hangers but do require that children's clothing sizes 0-6 be on children's hangers. Sizes bigger than that should be on adult hangers.

Q: What do you accept at your Spring and Fall event?

A: Click HERE to see a comprehensive list of what is acceptable during each season's sale.
EXCEPTION - Maternity section is all-season. And, of course - toys, equipment, furniture and larger items always sell the best!

Q: Can someone else drop off my stuff or pick it up for me?

A: Yes. As long as they have your information with them (Name, address, cell phone, consignor number, etc.) We will also need their name at drop off to write on your consignor waiver for pick up.  Remind them that they will need their ID for pick up.  For safety reasons we will NOT release your items to anyone without an ID for pickup.

Q: What if I say I'm going to pick up my items after the sale, but then decide later I want to donate them.

A: No problem! If you don't pick up your items during the specific Pick Up time, your items will automatically be donated to our charities. They will appreciate it!

A: That’s OK. There’s still lots of stuff you can do! Just go to the volunteer scheduler to see all the ways you can help!

Q: Can I bring my kids with me to volunteer?

A: No. No kids allowed for safety purposes. 

Q: What if I'm a nursing mom?

A: We can provide you a private place to pump during your time with us.  Please contact us so that we can make sure we make sure you are comfortable and taken care of.

Tips from Consignors around the US:

“I’m glad I sold my items with Just Between Friends. I made way more than I would have at a garage sale. I mean, WAY more! Love it!” Charlene in California

”I love My JBF Tags, the tagging site. It makes it so easy for me to keep track of all my items and I can check in each night to see how they are selling!” Suzanne in Oklahoma

"If it's an unused item or still has the tags on it, I always start my tag description with the word: **NEW**.....then follow with description. Draws attention to the reason why it might be priced a little higher." Denise in Texas

“What’s my secret to higher sales? Febreze and Wrinkle Releaser. It’s amazing how great fresh smelling clothes sell! A little squirt and all my things smell super clean.” Jody in Maryland
