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.

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.

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

Mommy Mart

Select:  Household items that other families will use (no knick knacks please).  You may consign storage solutions (baskets, bin, shelving), furniture (no upholstered items), decor (lamps, wall hangings, no antiques), and kitchen items (small appliances, utensils, etc.).

 We are narrowing this section a great deal!  No more toiletries,  knick-knacks, flea market finds, dated picture frames or gifts, strings of Christmas lights or outdated Christmas decorations!  This section was designed to be a RE-Gifting area for Moms!  Bring NEW,  UNOPENED Items, that would be good be regifting.  

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

Price:  Price to sell!  These items are not the primary reason shoppers come to JBF, so the price low!

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. For infant shoes or small shoes without laces, you may put the shoes in a clear zip-lock bag. 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 for infant/toddler; Add $1 each for larger size, name brand, or heavy/winter.


Tag: Punch a hole in the top of your tag and attach the tag to the shoes with the ribbon, string, or zip tie. For infant shoes in a clear zip-lock bag, 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!!  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.

VIP Consignors

The JBF VIP Tagging Service is the perfect solution for busy moms who don't have the time to prep and tag their children's outgrown items! Our top-notch taggers do all the work and you get a nice check two weeks after the event!!

If you don’t have the time to prepare and tag your kids’ stuff, call or email us and a Valet Tagging Team Leader will be in touch with you to see how we can best serve you.

Depending upon the level of service you desire, our  Team can take your items and hang, price, tag and drop-off everything at the sale for you.
After the sale is over, you can either pick-up any unsold items or donate them to our children’s charity!

To reserve your Valet Tagging spot at our next sale, contact Patti at  pattimaibauer@jbfsale.com  (usually within four weeks of the next sale). Space is extremely limited, so make sure to confirm your participation early.
We provide cardstock,  tags, tape, tagging guns, etc. If an item requires batteries, you will be charged only the cost of the batteries (and only if needed), since all sale items are required to be in working order at drop-off. (Hangers will be added to your consignor fee, at a rate of $.10/hanger OR YOU CAN PROVIDE YOUR OWN HANGERS AT NO COST.)
We also need to know if unsold items will be picked-up by you or donated to charity.
Your VIP Tagger will enter all tag information into the myjbftags.com barcode system, using your JBF Universal Consignor Number.

PLEASE NOTE:
Your VIP Tagger will price your items according to a general pricing guideline, which is based on 1/4 to 1/3 of the original retail prices of your items. NOTE: No changes (to prices, reduced/not reduced, donated/not donated, etc.) can be made after tags are printed.
The VIP Tagger will drop-off your items at the JBF sale (if desired). You will be able to view your sales (as they are uploaded) by logging into your My JBF Profile and then myjbftags.com account.
After the sale, you can either show up at consignor pick-up (the date/time can be found on our event calendar) to retrieve any unsold items or do nothing and your unsold items will be donated to charity. After you receive your check, please print off a tax deduction for your donation by going to myjbftags.com and clicking on “reports” and then “list of items.” You will choose “unsold/donated items” and then “print” for a list of the items you donated to charity.
NOTE: We automatically delete sold items one month after checks go out, so that moms can start tagging for the next event.

Patti and I organize the JBF sale in Coral Springs/Boca Raton.   Over the past seven years, we have helped thousands of moms and dads just like you clean up and cash in with JBF.

As  moms, we get it!  Raising kids on a budget is tough...not to mention they grow out of things SO fast.  That's why we brought Just Between Friends to South Florida. The event allows local families to sell the items their kids no longer use, and get so much MORE for LESS! It's a win-win and why we love JBF...we know you will too!
