PREPARING YOUR ITEMS

Start Tagging


Click to expand

Bags & Baby Carriers

Select:  Diaper bags,  infant carriers, backpacks, and purses are great consignment items. Please inspect all items carefully to make sure items have not been recalled, stained, damage or are missing pieces.  

Package:  Please zip-tie items to an adult-size hanger.

Price:  Price 50% - 75% off retail. Items in great condition tend to sell very well.

Tag:  Hole-punch JBF tag and attach it to item with ribbon or string. If item contains multiple pieces, be sure all pieces are included and list number of items on JBF tag description.

Bedding, Blankets & Textiles

Select:  Bedding sizes accepted are bassinet through twin only. Please be selective when selling bedding, blankets, receiving blankets, burp cloths, and towels. New and barely used items sell best. Check carefully for stains; shoppers get very disappointed if they find a stain in a bundled blanket once they get home.

Package:  Put bedding/crib/bedroom sets together in original packaging or in giant clear plastic bags. Arrange bedding sets inside bag so that shoppers can see all of the items as well as the design/pattern. Secure the bag so that items do not get separated. Bundle blankets, cloths, and towels with ribbon or string like a package (be sure multiple pieces cannot be separated).

Price:  Price to sell! Shoppers are less likely to purchase these items used, so prices have to be low. Try to price 75% - 90% off retail.

Tag:  If bedding is in a plastic bag, attach tag securely with packaging tape to the inside of the bag and tape the bag shut (bedding set prices vary widely and securing tags inside bags prevents tag switching). If bedding/blankets are bundled with string, attach tag directly to blanket and tuck it under the ribbon/string so that it does not easily get pulled off when shifting around during the sale.

Books, Games & DVD's

Books, Games, DVDs, Arts & Crafts

Select:  Books, book sets, board games, puzzles, video games, video game systems, scrapbook, arts & crafts sets are great items for resale.  Please only bring kid's, parenting, homeschooling, pregnancy and child rearing books.  DVD's rated G, PG and PG13 welcome.  Games and puzzles must have all pieces.  (No "adult" content please.)  Check items to ensure they are in great condition.

Package:  Use clear self-seal bags or clear cling wrap (saran wrap) to hold multiple items together; Tie sets of books together with ribbon/string or place in a clear plastic bag, taped shut. Be sure that parts/games to video game systems (such as Vtech) cannot be separated or switched out at the sale.  

Price:  Prices can range from $.50 to $50 in this category, depending on the item. Price to sell especially for books & DVDs as there are always lots to choose from at the sale. If you would like a high priced item placed in the High Value Cabinet near Checkout, please see a volunteer during Drop Off.

Tag:  When tagging books, please attach your tag to the book with clear tape that can be removed without damaging the item. Tape tag to the outside cover of glossy books and to the inside cover of books that will easily tear when removing the tag.  Use blue painter's tape on matte cover books.  Please do not use masking or double sided tape. Hole-punch JBF tag and tie to sets.

Clothing


Select:  We sell children's clothing Newborn through size 18,  as well as maternity sizes.  We will accept Junior Sizes 0,3,5,7,9  if they are "Teen" Brands (i.e. Justice, Abercrombie, Rue 21, Forever 21, etc)

 We are NOT accepting  any WOMEN's Brands (Ann Taylor, Banana Republic, Anne Klein, Jones New York, etc)

This sale is a Children's and Maternity Consignment Sale!  

 

Be picky. Look at your clothing items as if you were going to purchase them. No stained or damaged items will be accepted.  Any items that look like "mom's" clothes will be rejected at inspection. Please freshly clean your clothing items. Replace missing buttons, sew loose hems and seams, and clip loose threads. Please button all buttons, snap all snaps, zip all zippers before you arrive at drop off. This will ensure that there are no defects in the clothing. The newer the item looks, the better it will sell.

Package & Hang

Please hang clothes so the hanger hook points to the left (like a question mark).  Hang size 0-6 clothing on child-size hangers and sizes 7-20 and maternity clothing on adult-size hangers. Clothing that falls off the hanger onto the floor does not sell well.

Old Navy and many outlet stores are great places to get free hangers (they throw away hangers daily!) and WalMart & Target sell child-size plastic tube hangers at a great price. 

Clothing Sets - Sets tend to sell better (under size 6) so match things up if you can. All garments should be hung with the hanger hook pointing left (hanger should resemble a question mark when looking at the front of item). Safety pin or use a tagging gun to attach clothing sets securely with bottom garment hung on the backside of the shirt, so both pieces can be viewed without separating them.

Pants/Shorts - Pant-clip hangers are great but if you use a standard hanger, simply use your tagging gun to attach pants to the top part of the hanger so the garment will not slide. Onesies, socks, tights, hats and infant mittens need to be in a clear zip-lock bag (you may group multiple items in one bag). Please be sure to label your tag well so that customers know if the items are short-sleeve onesies or long-sleeve onesies.

Price: Hanging Clothing

 Put outfits/set together to price for at least $3.00; Start at $3 for basic, generic brand 0-24mo outfit. Add $1 each for larger size, name brand, formal, and heavy/winter.

  Non-hanging Clothing - Put sets together to price for at least $3.00, but okay to price for less (i.e., 6 pair of socks for $1.50).

Tag: Clothing On Hangers

Attach tag with a tagging gun or safety pin to the label of shirt or upper right front of pants. Insert the gun in a label or inside seam NOT through part of the clothing (to avoid making a hole or tear in the clothing). Also, pull on the tag to make sure it is properly secured and will not come off easily. Please make sure consignor tags are pulled out of the clothing so they are easily visible to the customers. 

Non-Hanging Clothing - Please use tagging gun or safety pins to attach tags to onesies, socks, tights, infant mittens, and accessories. Be sure to also attach multiple pieces together. Then put these items into clear zip-lock bags. Please do not tape bags closed - shoppers want to feel and inspect items before purchasing.

Furniture & Equipment

 Exersaucers, swings, high chairs, changing tables, cribs (Manufactured AFTER June 28, 2011; please bring Crib Waiver for all cribs), strollers, bath seats, baby walkers, car seats & car seat accessories must be checked for safety recalls, must have all parts, and be in good condition.

Children's furniture - beds (toddler, twin), desks, side tables, dressers, etc. 

Household furniture - please see Mommy Mart information below.

Package:  If item has multiple pieces use packaging tape, zip-ties, or string to keep items attached together. If wooden furniture has loose parts, use clear plastic wrap to secure item. All furniture and equipment must be assembled during the sale. Batteries must be included, if applicable. Please bring a Car Seat Checklist for all car seats, booster seats, and car seat base or infant carrier.

Price 50% - 75% off retail. Items in great condition tend to sell very well.

Infant Items

Select:  Nursing covers & pillows, feeding items, monitors, safety items, diapering & toileting items, rattles, and more. Please check for safety recalls on all items that you consign.

Package:  If item has multiple pieces use packaging tape, tagging gun, safety pins or clear self-seal bags to keep items attached together and clearly visible to shoppers. Batteries must be included, if applicable.

 We are narrowing this section a great deal to help make this event all about the kiddos!

Package:  If selling multiple pieces together, be sure that all pieces are secured together.

Tag:  Secure the tag to the item to ensure that the tag does not fall off during the sale and so that item is not damaged when the tag is removed after purchase.

Shoes

Select: Make sure that the shoes are clean, clean, clean! We will be VERY selective with shoes during Consignor Drop Off & Inspection.  

Package: Fasten shoes together with zip ties. Ziploc baggies are discouraged.  We prefer no shoe boxes. However, if shoes are in the box, please remove the lid, secure it to the bottom of the box, and secure the shoes to the box (closed boxes do not sell well).

Price: Shoes must be in good condition and should start at $3.00.

Tag: Punch a hole in the top of your tag and attach the tag to the shoes with the ribbon, string, or ziptie. For shoes in a clear zip-lock bag(discouraged to sell better), put the tag inside the bag and tape the bag shut with clear packing tape.

SHOES LOSE THEIR TAGS MORE THAN ANY OTHER ITEMS IN THE SALE.  PLEASE DO EVERYTHING POSSIBLE TO MAKE SURE YOUR TAG STAYS ON! ZIPTIES ARE THE BEST TO USE.  LAMINATE THEM, TAPE THEM, PUT A SMALL PIECE OF MASKING TAPE INSIDE THE SHOE WITH YOUR CONSIGNOR NUMBER ON IT, SO THAT WE CAN TRY TO LOOK IT UP!

Toys

Select:  Ride-on toys, block sets, dolls, remote control cars, outdoor toys, learning toys, and more. All toys must be checked for safety recalls before consigning.  Clean all toys and baby equipment thoroughly.  Please test to make sure that toys and equipment are working properly. Battery operated toys must include working batteries (these can be purchased inexpensively at local discount stores).

Package:  Keeping tags and multiple items attached is essential for your items to sell. Bag all small parts belonging to toys/equipment in self-seal bags and tape the bag shut with clear packing tape. Fasten the bag securely to the item with ribbon, tape, or zip ties. Items must include ALL working parts.

Price:  Price 50% - 90% off retail.

Tag:  Attach JBF tag directly to item with clear packaging tape or hole-punch JBF tag and tie it to item.

POWER SELLERS

NEW RULES FOR POWER SELLERS - Are you selling more than 500 items at the sale?  Then you are a POWER SELLER!  We love and welcome our Power Sellers!  Power sellers drop-off on Monday night.  After listening to your feedback, we are making some changes to the Power Seller Program:

VOLUNTEERING AT INSPECTION AND BREAKDOWN REQUIRED – Power Sellers bring at least twice the number of items to sell at the sale than the average consignor.  That means there is usually many more of their items to sort at the end of the event.  We are instituting a new policy requiring Power Sellers to help with inspection and breakdown. 

Power Sellers with more than 500 items will be required to work at least two hours during inspection and at least two hours at breakdown.  You must work 4 hours at breakdown to get your consignor fee waived.

To earn the additional 10% of sales you must volunteer 6 hours total.

**During this owner transition please continue to check the website for updated information*

Over the past 10 years this sale has helped thousands of local families find gently-used clothing and toys for their kiddos.  I am so proud to be able to continue this event at the same venue.  

As a volunteer, consignor, shopper, and mom myself, I get it!  Raising kids on a budget is tough...not to mention they grow out of things SO fast.  This event allows families to sell their OWN items that their kids no longer use, and get so much MORE for LESS! It's a win-win and why I have been involved with JBF for the past seven years.  I love JBF... I know you will too!
