Just Between Friends Consignment Sale


Looking to add to your kiddo’s wardrobe, but don’t want to spend department store prices?

Just Between Friends is a huge, organized, bargain hunters dream and it is growing by leaps and bounds in Central Iowa.  JBF is a children’s and maternity consignment event happening once in the spring and once in the fall.  There are 140 sales all around the country run by moms who have a desire to get great bargains, bring money back into their homes, recycle their children’s items and help their community.  And, the bonus, its sooooo easy!

Here’s how it works:
  1. You tag your items using the easy, online tagging system.  You create an account online, then you even set your own prices and write your own descriptions. JBF gives a listing of recommended price points, but you can price your items and describe them however you like.  It only takes about 1-2 minutes to tag an item.
  2. You drop your items at the event and they take it from there.  They inspect for recalls, stains, missing parts and anything else that would keep items from being a great find for our shoppers.
  3. You shop!  Really, this is the fun part!  You will save 50-90% on clothing, shoes, toys, educational games, bikes, outdoor toys, books and more!
  4.  At the end of the sale, you can pick-up your unsold items or JBF can donate them for you and give you a tax deduction slip.  The average pickup is less than 5 minutes.  No searching to find your items!  Their rigorous sorting process means you are in and out the door in 5 minutes!
  5. You get paid!
Community Involvement

JBF partners with Hope Ministries who receive the donated items after the sale for those who wish to donate their unsold items. This is a fabulous opportunity for moms to give back to their local charity and it saves them a trip back to the sale. Moms can view their sold items online and decide if a trip back to pick up unsold/remaining items is worth their time or they can skip pickup and we will make the donation to Hope for them and send them a tax receipt.
