INFANT TO SIZE 16 CLOTHING

We sell children's clothing Premie through size 16 (limit 10 girl's Junior size items, Abercrombie, Hollister, Addidas, Puma, American Eagle, Nike, Under Armour, Pink, preferred) as well as maternity sizes (limit 10 maternity clothing items per consignor).

Our March Sale is spring and summer clothing only (what your child would wear between March-August). Be picky. Look at your clothing items as if you were going to purchase them. No stained or damaged items will be accepted.  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 (and the better it smells), the better it will sell.

Package & Hang:  Hangers - Please hang clothes so the hanger hook points to the left (like a question mark).

Hang size 0-5T clothing on child-size hangers and sizes 6-juniors/maternity clothing on adult-size hangers.

Clothing that falls off the hanger onto the floor does not sell well.  Plastic tubular hangers or wire hangers are preffered.

Clothing Sets - Sets tend to sell better (under size 6) so match things up if you can.

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.

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.

SHOES

Shoes:  Don't forget the rain boots, cowboy boots and cleats!

All shoes will be inspected and must be in new or very gently used condition.

Magic Erasers work WONDERS on shoes!!  A little bit of effort can add up to a lot of $ for you!

Shoes with dirt or mud will not be accepted.

Tag:  Attach a tag with a large safety pin to the laces and, for extra security, place a piece of tape over the pin.  I prefer to zip tie my shoes together, then pin the tag around the zip tie, then tape the pin.  Extra secure!

Shoes are handled a lot at the sale, so be sure that tag is not going anywhere (except out the door after someone has bought it!).

Attach the tag to the shoes, NOT the box.  Boxes aren't necessary to sell shoes and we'd prefer you leave the boxes at home.

Avoid putting shoes in zip-lock baggies if possible.  They are more likely to sell when shoppers can see them better.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

BOOKS, GAMES, ARTS & CRAFTS

Please only bring kids, CURRENT parenting, homeschooling, and pregnancy books. We do NOT accept library books, adult novels or cookbooks. 

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. 

Price to sell especially for books as there are always lots to choose from at the sale.

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. Please do not use masking or double sided tape. Hole-punch JBF tag and tie to sets.

TOYS

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.

BABY SUPPLIES & EQUIPMENT

Baby Items: Bibs, cloth diapers, bottles, small toys, bows, socks, etc. can be in clear Ziploc bags with the tag attached to the inside or outside of the bag.  You can use clear packing tape for securing the bags closed. This prevents 'little' hands from reaching in.

Blankets and Snuglis sell better if they are hung and pinned to a hanger.

Several small items can be grouped together in Ziploc bags (books, rattles, grab bags for small toys).

Breast Pumps:  If bringing a breast pump to sell, please price for $50 or less.  Due to recent legislation, many insurance companies now provide pumps to expecting mothers, so they are less in demand than in the past.

Infant Equipment:
Infant equipment includes: Car seats, strollers, high chairs, swings, exersaucers, bouncy seats, boppies, play gyms, pack and plays and bassinets.

Car seats, Bases and Booster seats MUST have one "year of life" left in them based on manufacturers guidelines.  So if it expires 2/1/21, it can be sold with JBF until 2/1/20.  It has one year of usable life left before it expires. Please bring in the instruction manual.  If you don't have one, you can print it from the manufacturer's website.  We must have a filled out car seat waiver in order to consign a car seat, base or booster seat.

Cribs:  Just Between Friends can only accept the consignment of cribs manufactured on or after June 28, 2011. Cribs manufactured from July 23, 2010 to June 28, 2011 may be consigned if the consignor provides a certificate of compliance from the crib manufacturer or retailer. Cribs manufactured prior to July 23, 2010 will not be accepted under any circumstance. Cribs that are unacceptable, for any reason, cannot be sold as toddler beds. Click here for a Crib Waiver, fill it out and bring it with you to check in.

DVD's & ELECTRONICS

DVD's: Make sure the disc is in the case and not scratched.  Sorry, we do not sell VHS tapes and will automatically donate any that are put out on the sales floor.  No rated R movies.

Expensive Electronics ARE safe to bring.  DS's, PSP's, etc all sell great!  No M for Mature ratings please!

Quality Matters!

Must be musical or animated ("do" something) or they will be pulled from the sales floor.   No beanie babies or used webkins.  Build-A-Bears must be accessorized or talk/sing.  We will accept Disney and Kohls Cares for kids stuffed animals and books.

CHILDREN'S BEDDING

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! All bedding must be priced $25 and below.
.
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.

We DO NOT accept Queen, King bedding or Crib bumper pads.

MOMMY MART

Due to space limitations we ARE NOT accepting household decor, gifts, candles, etc.
