Just Between Friends | Shop. Sell. Save.

Des Moines parents get ready! Looking for fall or winter clothes? Holiday gifts? Head to the Iowa State Fairgrounds this weekend to shop. The Just Between Friends Fall 2019 sales event begins Friday, September 13 and will run through Sunday, September 15.

What is Just Between Friends?

Hundreds of local families sell their gently used and new children’s items at Just Between Friends. Sellers earn 65-75% of their sales and have the option to donate unsold items to Hope Ministries located in Des Moines. Did you know Just Between Friends is locally owned by a mom of 2 (almost 3!)? Learn more about owner Marisa Clark!

Safety Spotlight

Just Between Friends checks ALL items before they open to the public for recalls, unsafe wear and tear, and outdated items. On any given day, Marisa will browse through the Facebook marketplace and see 20-25 recalled items (which are illegal to sell and can harm your child). You will not find that at Just Between Friends. During the expectant parent presale, Marisa will walk around and talk to new parents about car seat safety, stroller safety, and sleep safety. They take it one step further and label crib bumpers, sleep positioners, and more with information on safe sleep guidelines (ABC’s of safe sleep!) and that the product should not be used in a crib.  

Selling with Just Between Friends

Selling with Just Between Friends is the easiest way to make the most money for the items you are no longer using. Sellers enjoy the online tagging system that allows them to track sales live during the event, easy drop off process, organized pick up (it is already pre-sorted!), early shopping times, and the ability to earn even more money by helping at the event.
