Infant to Preteen clothing

We sell children's clothing Newborn through size 20 and Junior Sizes (0, 1, 3, 5, 7, 9, 11, 13) as well as maternity clothing and accessories. Our Fall/Winter Sale is fall & winter clothing only (we will not accept shorts, capris, summer dresses and summer sandals).  Short sleeve shirts are fine. 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 0-7/8 clothing on child-size hangers and sizes 9-20 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!)  We also have child size wire hangers for sale $2/25.  Email us if you are interested in purchasing hangers.  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).  Use a safety pin 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 2 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 can be placed 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 $2.00;  Start at $2 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 $2.00, but it's okay to price for less (i.e., 6 pair of socks for $1.50).

Tag:  Clothing on Hangers - Attach tag with a safety pin to the label of shirt/dress, upper right corner of shirt/dress or upper right front of pants.  If using a tagging gun 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 safety pins to attach tags to onesies, socks, tights, infant mittens, and accessories.  Be sure to also attach multiple pieces together.  You can also put these items into clear zip-lock bags.  Please tape bags closed - we can open the bags for shoppers if they want to feel and inspect items before purchasing.  How to Hang Clothing Items for JBF

Equipment & Furniture

Exersaucers, swings, high chairs, changing tables, cribs (Manufactured AFTER June 28, 2011; please bring Crib Waiver for all cribs), strollers, bath tubs, baby walkers, bouncy seats, car seats & car seat accessories must be checked for safety recalls (link), must have all parts, and be in good condition.  Children's furniture - beds (toddler, twin), desks, side tables, dressers, etc.  Household furniture - please see Mommy Mart information below.

Package:  If item has multiple pieces use zip-ties, packaging tape, or string to keep items attached together.  If wooden furniture has loose parts, use clear plastic wrap to secure item (please don't use packing tape on wooden furniture).  All furniture and equipment must be assembled during the sale.  Batteries must be included, if applicable. Please bring a Car Seat Checklist (link) for all car seats, booster seats, and car seat base or infant carrier.

Price:  Price 50% - 65% off retail.  Items in great condition tend to sell very well.

Tag:  Attach JBF tag directly to item with clear packaging tape or hole-punch JBF tag and zip-tie it to item.  How to tag Large Items with multiple pieces

Toys

Toys sell well!!  We consistently run out of girl and boy toys by Saturday afternoon!

Ride-on toys, block sets, dolls, remote control cars, outdoor toys, learning toys, legos, 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 zip-tie it to item.  Prepping Multi-Piece Toys

Infant Items

Nursing covers & pillows, feeding items, monitors, safety items, diapering & toileting items, rattles, and more. Please check for safety recalls (link) on all items that you consign.

Package:  If item has multiple pieces use packaging tape, zip-ties, safety pins or clear self-seal bags to keep items attached together and clearly visible to shoppers. Batteries must be included, if applicable.

Price:  Price 50% - 75% off retail. Items in great condition tend to sell very well.

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.  How to Hang Infant Items

Books, Games, DVDs, Arts & Crafts

Books, book sets, board games, puzzles, video games, video game systems, scrapbook items, arts & crafts, children's DVDs are great items for resale.  Please only bring kids’, parenting, homeschooling, pregnancy and child rearing books.  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. Be sure that parts/games to video game systems (such as Vtech) cannot be separated or switched out at the sale.  Please do not use clear packing tape on books or puzzles and this tends to damage the item when the customer removes the tag.  Clear cling wrap is great for puzzles and scotch tape or painters tape is great for books.

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.

Tag:  When tagging books, please attach your tag to the book with clear tape or painters tape that can be removed without damaging the item.  Please do not use masking or double sided tape. Hole-punch JBF tag and tie to sets.  How to Tag Books, DVDs and Electronics

Bedding, Blankets & Textiles

Bedding sizes accepted are bassinet through full size 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 (these can usually be found at a local Dollar Store). 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 or with safety pins (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 with a safety pin and tuck it under the ribbon/string so that it does not easily get pulled off when shifting around during the sale.  How to Tag Bedding

Shoes

Make sure that shoes are clean, clean, clean!  We will be VERY selective with shoes during Consignor Drop Off & Inspection.  Shoes must be current season (Fall = October thru February; Spring = March thru September).

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 $1.00 - $2.00 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.  How to Tag Shoes

Bags & Baby Carriers

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 - we will also have hangers and zip ties available at consignor drop off.

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, string or zip-tie.  If item contains multiple pieces, be sure all pieces are included and list number of items on JBF tag description.  How to Tag Diaper Bags and Baby Carriers

Maternity Items

Maternity Clothing (only newer styles will be accepted), breastfeeding tops, belly bands, nursing bras, and breast pumps are great items.  We will accept ALL seasons for maternity clothing.

Please do not bring out-dated maternity clothes. They just will not sell. Please donate these items and do not tag them.

Package & Hang:  Hangers - Please hang clothes so the hanger hook points to the left (like a question mark).  Please use adult size hangers.  Secure pants to a hanger using safety pins (do not fold them over the hanger).  Shoppers like to see what they are purchasing.  Clothing that falls off the hangers does not sell well.

Price:  Hanging Clothing - Put outfits/set together and price to sell;  Start at $1 - $3 for basic, generic brand.  Add $1 each for name brand, formal, and heavy/winter.

Tag:  Clothing on Hangers - Attach tag with a safety pin to the label of shirt/dress, upper right corner of shirt/dress or upper right front of pants.  If using a tagging gun 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 Items - Please use safety pins to attach tags.  Be sure to also attach multiple pieces together.  You can also put these items into clear zip-lock bags.  Please tape bags closed - we can open the bags for shoppers if they want to feel and inspect items before purchasing.  How to Hang Maternity Clothing

Power Seller Guidelines

Are you a Power Seller?  We have a 1000 item limit at this event.  If you have 750-1000 total items you're bringing to the sale, we consider you a Power Seller!

In order for our sorting to go effeciently, we do ask that you work a Power Seller Sorting Shift via the online volunteer scheduler (this is a 2 hour shift held Sunday evening).  During this time you'll be helping us sort ALL consignors items, ensuring this big job gets done in time.  You will not earn volunteer credit for this shift.  You may choose a second volunteer shift to work during the event to earn the extra percentage (70%) on your sold items.

Power Sellers unable or unwilling to help in this way will have a $20 charge added to their consignor account so we can hire someone to work in their place.

Next, remember that Power Consignor Drop Off is Thursday May 3rd 5pm - 7pm.  We want to spread out those who have large quantites to keep the drop off lines from getting backed up.

Get those items tagged and get ready to earn big!!

SHARE THE SALE & MAKE MORE MONEY

Print off the Buddy Pass and share with your Family, Friends, Co-Workers, Neighbors, Church Group, etc.  These are FREE Admission passes for you to share!  If 5 or more are returned to the sale you will earn 5% more on your consignor sales!  Remember, more shoppers = more of you items sell = a bigger check for you!

VALET CONSIGNING

Too busy to tag? Don't feel like tagging? Let our valet taggers tag for you!!

Just Between Friends Pueblo offers its consignors a Valet Tagging service for moms who want to earn money for their items, but do not have the time to tag and prep their items!

Space for Valet Tagging Clients is limited and ends two to three weeks before the sale. To secure a spot, we suggest you sign up as soon as possible.

Process and Details:
1. Register to participate in the Fall 2018 sales event.  Email us and let us know that you want to participate in our Valet Tagging program and we will have a Valet Coordinator contact you.

2. Schedule a drop-off time with your Valet Coordinator.  Gather your items and drop them off.

3. Items will be prepped and tagged by your Valet Coordinator. You will be charged for unacceptable items, so bring only your best!  After your items are tagged by the Valet Coordinator, you will be sent an invoice.

4. Upon receiving the invoice, you will have 5-days to pay the Valet Coordinator.  *Payments can be made with check or cash directly to the Valet Coordinator.

5. After payment, you will receive your items and will bring them to the venue for consignor drop off during the drop off times listed above.  You will not have to go through inspection since your items were checked by our Valet Coordinator.

6. Your items will be on the sales floor beginning with the presale through the half price sale. You will earn 60-70% on your sold items (minus the standard $13.00 consignor fee and supply fee)!

7. Pick-up unsold items at the end of the event at the Pueblo Convention Center. If you don't want to pick-up your items you can choose to donate them to our charity partner.

Cost:
$.07 per each item tagged to cover the cost of tagging supplies (hangers, cardstock, safety pins, etc.) + $13.00 consignor fee.  The supply fee and consignor fee will be deducted from your consignor check.

+ PRICING of $.35 per item tagging fee paid directly to the Valet Coordinator (you will be charged for unacceptable items so please make sure you don't have stained or torn items).  This is tiered pricing - price will increase to $.40 per item on August 24th and $.45 per item on September 24th

For example, if you bring only your 100 best items by August 23rd and none are rejected, and your tagged items total $300 -- you will pay $35 + $7 + $13.00 consignor fee.  You would receive a check Sunday evening for $245.

The tagging fee must be paid directly to the Valet Coordinator prior to picking-up your items – payment can be made by check or cash.

Tips:

  • Bring items in plastic bins or boxes – this will keep your items organized once tagged and easy to transport. Be sure to write your name and phone number on the bottom of the bins if left at the sale.
  • We strongly suggest that you participate in the Half Price Sale.
  • With this new system, bring only your best so it’s sure to sell!
  • Since your items are tagged – why not participate in another Colorado sale and make the most money from your gently used items. Your UCN will work at all JBF sales!

The fees for this service go directly to the Valet Coordinator for their time and effort – these are moms that are looking for additional ways to make some money and to help other moms do the same by participating in JBF.  This program guarantees that they are being compensated for their time.  If you are interested in being a Valet Tagger please contact brendasanchez@jbfsale.com – we are always looking for moms to make this program grow!

Interested, but have questions? Email me at brendasanchez@jbfsale.com.  I will give you further information and send an agreement.

We get it!  Raising kids is expensive and that's why we brought Just Between Friends to the Pueblo area!

We have 2 girls, Leea age 13 and Liliana age 12 who love to help at the sale!  Brenda shopped at her first JBF sale when she was pregnant with Liliana and has been hooked ever since.  We love sharing JBF with the Pueblo community and offering local families a way to make money and save money on items for their growing kids.
