Infant to Size 20 clothing

We sell children's clothing Newborn through size 20 (limit 25 girl's junior size items, name brand preferred) as well as maternity sizes (limit 25 maternity clothing items per consignor). Our sales are seasonal so Only Spring and Summer clothing will be accepted at our Spring sale and Only fall & winter clothing will be accepted at our Fall 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 (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 0-6 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 so we prefer clothing to be safety pinned to the hanger. 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 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 safety pins 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 remembering to price at 50-90% off retail (See pricing guidelines link below)
Non-Hanging Clothing - 50-90% off retail

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.

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

Package:  Please zip-tie items to an adult-size hanger. If you would like to zip tie item to clothing rack for extra security please ask a team member for a zip tie at check in or bring your own.

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

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.

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. Books priced at $1-2 each sell well.

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

Perfect Consignors

We appreciate those consignors who spend the extra time at home ensuring that their items are stain free and tagged correctly and we want to reward them for their hard work!

If you have less than three stained, damaged, or unacceptable items pulled at drop off or during the sale (and zero recalled items), you will be added to a list which allows you to skip inspection during drop off at the next sale. This saves you lots of time at Drop Off!

REMEMBER: Perfect Consignor status is earned each sale. Spend the extra time inspecting items at home so that you earn perfect status for the next sale!

I have 2 goals in running my Just Between Friends consignment event:

1) Helping local families find the things that they need for their growing families without breaking their budgets.

2) Helping local families recoup some of the money that they have put into purchasing the items that their families no longer need.

I love searching for a bargain and helping others do the same makes me really happy!
