CONSIGNOR BASICS

  1. Consignors sell an average of over $400 each sale, earning 60% on their sales and an extra 10% if they are able to volunteer just 4 hours.
  2. Consignors must do 3 THINGS before they come to Drop Off:
    #1 - Pay Consignor Fee
    There is a $15 consignor fee (plus a small handling charge), discounted if paid early.  $10 if paid in June.  $12.50 if paid in July.  All fees are paid before the sale.  This fee is waived for those who volunteer 16 hours.  NEW THIS SALE!  If you mark all of your items to Reduce & Donate, your consignor fee will be waived.  There is a place on your Consignor Waiver to indicate if you have done this on ALL of your tags. CLICK HERE to pay your Consignor Fee.
    #2 - Fill out a Consignor Waiver
    All consignors must fill out an online Consignor Waiver (no need to print anything).  CLICK HERE to fill out your Consignor Waiver.
    #3 - Register online as a Consignor
    Follow the Login link top right of the website to register.  Failure to do this means you won't be able to see any of your sales online to know what sold.
  3. The FREE and EASY tagging site is open year-round and you may tag your items at any time.  No item limit except for maternity clothing that has a limit of 15 items and stuffed animals are limited to 5.
  4. Tagging is simple - You price it, choose if you want it to go to 1/2 price on the last day, and if you want to donate it if it doesn't sell.  You tag it, bring it to the sale and put it on the sales floor and we do the rest!
  5. Don't have time to prep and tag your items?  Our DropNGo Tagging Service is for you!  Details below.
  6. First time consignor needing a little encouragment on how this all works?  Our Consignor Mentor program or our JBF101 "How To" Conference calls may be just what you need.
  7. Consignors and 1 Guest get to shop early before we open to the public and also get to shop our 1/2 Price Presale.  The Consignor and Guest Presale is on Friday, 8/31/18, from 6 pm to 10 pm.  The 1/2 Price Presale for Consignors who were unable to volunteer (and their Guest) is on Saturday, 9/8/18, 8 am.  Want to shop even earlier?  Volunteer!  The more you volunteer, the earlier you shop.
  8. Consignor checks are emailed (eChecks that can be printed at home on regular paper with regular ink) about 2 weeks after the end of the sale.

HELPING AT THE SALE

Login to Add Shift

Join our #JBF817 Team!  Over 300 parents and grandparents work at the sale to help provide the best shopping experience for our community.  The more you volunteer, the earlier you shop!  You do not have to be a consignor to volunteer.  The online Volunteer Scheduler will be open from mid-July through 8/27/18 at 10 am.  After that, if you are a consignor, you will sign up for a volunteer shift at Drop Off.  If you are not a consignor and you missed the deadline, please email FtWorthVol@jbfsale.com and let us know when you are hoping to work and we will find a spot for you.  Our Facebook Friends find out first when the online Volunteer Scheduler opens, so make sure you follow us on Facebook!

What do Volunteers Do at the Sale?  Anything it takes to keep the sale running!  You may help with setting up, Drop Off, security, merchandise organization, helping in the Workroom or Hold Area, sorting unsold items, breaking down the sale, or whatever it takes to make the sale a success.

Barter Volunteer Jobs  A Barter Volunteer Job is a task that is not a regular 4-Hour volunteer shift.  Barter jobs DO earn you a Volunteer Presale Pass but they do NOT earn you the extra 10% on your items that sell.  Barter jobs are very limited and are signed up for online just like regular shift work.  If you are unable to find any barter jobs online, that means they have all been taken.

Interested in 75% OFF Shopping?  The 75% Off Super Saver Shopping time is only open to 25 shoppers and happens on 9/8/18 at 5:15 pm when we close to the public.  Only items marked to be Donated are 75% off.  Shoppers only have 1 hour to shop and then they help sort unsold items from 6:30 pm to 10  pm.  This volunteer shift DOES count towards making the extra 10% on your sold items but DOES NOT count towards any other Presale Pass.

Bags & Baby Carriers

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

Package:  Please zip-tie items to an adult-sized hanger. If you would like to place high-priced items (over $20) in our High Value Cabinet or High Value Rack by the Hold Area, please see a volunteer at Drop Off for assistance.

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

Tag:  Safety pin JBF tag to the item or hole-punch the tag (reinforce hole with packing tape) and 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 do not bring twin sizes that are not children's bedding.  The only exception is if you have full-sized child-themed/character bedding (not just a solid color or denim, etc.).  Please be selective when selling bedding, blankets, receiving blankets, burp cloths, and towels. New and barely used items sell best. Check carefully for stains.

CLICK HERE for Bedding Tagging Video

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).  You may also use a pant hanger to display your blankets.  If you drape them over the hanger's cardboard tube, be sure to safety pin the blanket to itself just under the hanger tube so it won't fall off.  We do have a Testing Station for our shoppers to request a volunteer help them unpack an item so it can be fully inspected.  Our volunteers will do their best to repackage the item as you had it.

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 packing 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.

Books, Games, DVDs, Arts & Crafts

Books, book sets, board games, puzzles, video games, video game systems, scrapbook, and arts & crafts sets are great items for resale.  Please only bring children's, parenting, homeschooling, pregnancy, and child rearing books.  No R rated movies or M rated video games are allowed.  No VHS tapes are accepted.

Games and puzzles must have all pieces.  (No "adult" content please.)  Check items to ensure they are in great condition and tape or tie the box closed.

CLICK HERE for DVD/Book Tagging Video

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.  Higher priced items can be placed in the High Value Cabinet by the Hold Area.  Please ask a volunteer for help putting things in there during Drop Off.

Price:  Prices can range from $.50 to $50 in this category, depending on the item. Price to sell especially for books and DVDs as there are always lots to choose from at the sale. If you would like a high-priced item placed in the High Value Cabinet by the Hold Area, please see a volunteer during Drop Off.

Tag:  When tagging books, please attach your tag to the outside of the book with blue painter's tape that can be removed without damaging the item. Please do not use packing, masking, or double sided tape.

Clothing

We sell children's clothing Newborn through size Juniors 5/Small for girls and through size 18/20 for boys in addition to maternity clothing.  Men's size Small and Medium (not larger than size 34 waist in shorts or pants) will be accepted in limited brands - brands that boys would wear like Nike, UA, A&F, Polo, etc.  Items that are deemed more appropriate for adults will be pulled and returned to you.

Seasonal Clothing
The Spring Sale is spring and summer clothing only (what your child would wear in our area between March and September).  We do accept long pants, long sleeved shirts, and lightweight sweaters or wind-breakers at our Spring sale, but no heavy fabrics or holiday wear.  The Fall Sale is fall and winter clothing only (what your child would wear in our area between September and March).  We will accept shorts and short sleeved shirts, but not swimwear, tank tops, or light-weight summer fabrics.  All seasons of maternity clothing are accepted at both the Fall and Spring sale, but you may only bring 15 maternity clothing items each sale.  Large-sized non-maternity clothing that you may have worn as maternity clothes are not accepted.  Don't forget that costumes sell great year-round.

Clothing in Good Condition
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. 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.

CLICK HERE for Clothing Tagging Video

Package/Hang: 
Hangers
Any type of hanger may be used but we ask that you use a child-sized hanger for clothing up through size 5.  Adult sized wire hangers can be crimped down and used without damaging a smaller size.  Some hangers are very flimsy so choose carefully so that your item won't fall to the floor if the hanger breaks.  Some retailers/outlet stores give away hangers.  If you need to purchase hangers, you may buy them anywhere or from one of our consignors who stocks child-sized wire hangers to sell just to JBF consignors. 

Hanger and Tagging Gun Kit Sales Dates and Locations on the Tagging Supplies Page below.

Please hang clothes so when you are looking at the front of the item, the hanger hook points to the left (like a question mark).

Clothing sets tend to sell better (under size 6) so match things up if you can. Safety pin clothing sets securely with bottom garment hung on the backside of the shirt, so both pieces can be viewed without separating them.  Make sure all pieces are pinned so that the safety pin goes around the hanger.  This will keep the weight of the 2nd item from pulling too much on the front item and potentially damaging it.  When selling pants, shorts, or a skirt, pin the item to the top/angled part of the hanger and NOT to the bottom/horizontal part.  This will keep the item from slipping off to one side where shoppers won't even see it.

If an item can be hung up, including onesies, it needs to be hung up.  Accessories like socks, tights, hats, and mittens/gloves can be pinned together or loose, or they may placed in a clear zip-lock bag (you may group multiple items of the same size in one bag).  Please be sure to label your tag well so that customers will know exactly what is in the bag.  Underwear, cloth diapers, and reusable swim diapers may not be put in a ziploc bag.  New in package underwear is an exception.

Price:  The Pricing Guidelines link at the bottom of this page is a big help when pricing clothing.

All hanging items must be priced at least $3.  If you feel like your single item cannot bring $3, make an outfit or group like sized/like styled items together to bring it up to at least $3.  We recommend pricing Newborn through 2T in the 70-80% off retail range due to the large volume of clothing in these sizes.

Non-Hanging Items can be priced as low as 50 cents.

Tag:  You may use a safety pin or a tagging gun to attach the JBF tag.

Hanging Clothes

  • If you are using a safety pin, attach the tag to the upper right front of the item (right side when you are looking at the item).  If it is a delicate fabric, please be careful so that the safety pin does not leave a hole in the item.  You may pin it to the manufacturer's tag if you think it might damage the item.
  • If you are using a tagging gun, attach the JBF tag to either the manufacturer's tag at the neck or waist, or if there is not one, please attach it to the underarm seam for shirts and  waist or pocket seams for pants.  If the tagging gun is used improperly, it will ruin the clothing item and cause it to be rejected at Inspection.  A gentle pull on the tag to make sure it is properly secured and will not come off easily is wise.

Non-Hanging Clothing/Accessories

  • If your accessories are in a ziploc bag, you may use clear packing tape to attach the price tag to the outside of the bag.  All underwear, cloth diapers, and reusable swim diapers may not be put in a bag unless they are new in package.
  • If your items are not in a bag, you may use a safety pin or a tagging gun to attach the tag to the item, being careful not to damage the item.  See note above about underwear, cloth diapers, and reusable swim diapers.

Equipment, Furniture, & Room Decor

Children's Equipment - exersaucers, swings, bouncers, high chairs, changing tables, cribs (Manufactured AFTER June 28, 2011 - please bring Crib Checklist), strollers, bath seats, baby walkers, pack and plays, car seats, and car seat accessories must be checked for safety recalls, must have all parts, and be in good condition.  Car seats cannot be more than 1 year from their expiration date.  See the Safety & Recall link at the bottom of this page to check your items.  These items are some of the hottest sellers at JBF.

Children's furniture - beds (crib, toddler, twin, bunk), desks, side tables, dressers, storage solutions, etc. are always popular and must be in good condition.

Household furniture - please see Mommy Mart information below.

Children's Room Decor - wall art, figurines, area rugs, lamps, etc. sell well if the price is right.  Please do not bring these items from other areas of your home - they must be from a child's room.

It is very important that you bring tools and "muscle" to set up any items that need setting up.  JBF's savvy shoppers will be very leery to buy an item that is not fully set up.

CLICK HERE for Large Item Tagging Video

Package:  If item has multiple pieces, use packaging tape, zip-ties, ribbon, or string to keep items attached together. If wooden furniture has loose parts, use clear plastic wrap to secure item or put them in a ziploc bag and secure the bag to the main piece of equipment/furniture. In addition to assembling all of your items, working batteries must be included, if applicable. Please bring a Car Seat Checklist for all car seats, booster seats, car seat bases, and infant carriers.  Remember, this also applies to infant carriers that are part of a stroller travel system.  We cannot sell an item unless we have a checklist for it.

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

Tag:  Attach JBF tag directly to the item with clear packing tape, a safety pin, or hole-punch the JBF tag (reinforce the hole with clear packing tape) and tie it to item with ribbon or string.

Infant Items

Nursing covers and pillows, feeding items, breast pumps, monitors, safety items, diapering and toileting items, rattles, and more.  Please check for safety recalls on all items that you consign by using the link below.

Package:  If item has multiple pieces, use packing tape, safety pins, or ziploc bags to keep items attached together and clearly visible to shoppers. Working 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 ziploc bag or hole-punch JBF tag (reinforce hole with clear packing tape) and tie it to item with ribbon or string.

Mommy Mart & Daddy Mart

Mommy Mart:  We gladly accept dining room/dinette sets, bookcases/entertainment centers, coffee tables, end tables, bedroom sets, dressers, chests, armoires, desks, or porch/patio furniture.  We cannot accept any upholstered items with the exception of dining room/dinette set chairs.
 

Daddy Mart:  We gladly accept NEW/UNUSED (preferably in the unopened box) items like grills, large-scale tools (like power tools), workbenches, etc.  Please email Joanie about your item before you bring it to check for acceptability.  These must be new and unused items to be acceptable.  Remember this is for large items.

We are unable to accept antiques, upholstered chairs and couches (with the exception of dining room chairs with a set), exercise equipment, lamps, knick knacks, figurines, electronics (TVs, VCRs, DVD players, etc.), kitchen/household appliances, floral arrangements, holiday decorations, dishes, TV trays, pictures, mattress sets, luggage, used grills, or used power tools.

If you have a question about the acceptability of your item, please contact Joanie ahead of time to check before you go to the effort to bring it down to the sale.

Package:  If selling multiple pieces together, be sure that all pieces are secured together. 

Price:  Price to sell!  These items are not the primary reason shoppers come to JBF, so price low!  Make sure your JBF tag mentions all of the pieces included.

Tag:  Secure the tag to the item to ensure that the tag does not fall off during the sale and so the item is not damaged when the tag is removed after purchase.

Shoes

Make sure that shoes (and laces) are clean, clean, clean!  At the start of the sale, we will feature our "Top Shelf Shoes" on the tables with those shoes that aren't Top Shelf in bins below the table.  As the sale progresses, the shoes in the bins will be moved up to the tables.  Bring your Top Shelf Shoes - our shoppers will love them!  We will be VERY selective with shoes during Consignor Drop Off & Inspection.  Mr. Clean Magic Erasers work great to remove scuffs.  Shoes may be any season at the Spring and Fall sales event.  All sizes are accepted but remember, they must be kid appropriate.  Don't forget athletic cleats and dance/tap shoes.

CLICK HERE for Shoe Tagging Video

Package: If they have laces, tie the laces together in a knot.  Fasten shoes together with zip ties, ribbon, or a large safety pin if they don't have laces.  If there is no way to attach them together, they are infant/crib shoes, or the use of a safety pin would damage the shoe, they may be placed in a ziploc bag.  Please do not seal the bag as our Shoe Inspection Team will have to remove the shoes to inspect them.  No shoe boxes please.

Price: Shoes must be in good condition and should be priced 50% - 90% off retail.

Tag: Safety pin your tag to the shoe/laces or you may hole-punch your JBF tag (reinforce the hole with clear packing tape) in the top of the tag and attach the tag to the shoes with ribbon, string, or a zip tie.  For any shoes that you had to put in a ziploc bag, please place the tag inside the bag.  The bag can be taped close after the shoes pass Inspection.

Toys

Ride-on toys, block sets, dolls, remote control cars, outdoor toys, learning toys, and more. We do accept stuffed animals but you are limited to 5 stuffed animals per consignor.  Please be picky about what you bring and wash them before you bring them.  All toys must be checked for safety recalls before consigning.  See the Safety & Recall link at the bottom of this page.  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.  Inexpensive batteries may be purchased at the dollar store or Harbor Freight.  Please ensure all toys that have been left outside do not have water in them.

CLICK HERE for Toys Tagging Video

Package:  Keeping tags and multiple items attached is essential for your items to sell. Bag all small parts belonging to toys/equipment in ziploc bags and tape the bag shut with clear packing tape. Fasten the bag securely to the item with ribbon, packing 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 packing tape or hole-punch the JBF tag at the top of the tag (reinforce hole with clear packing tape) and tie it to item with a zip tie, string, or ribbon.  If packing tape will damage the item when it is removed (for decals, stickers, etc.) please use blue painters tape or use the ziptie/string/ribbon method.  Keep in mind that while blue painters tape is a good way not to damage decals, its lack of "stickiness" may not keep your items together.

Hanger and Tagging Gun Kit Sales Dates and Locations below.

Besides needing a computer and printer to prepare your tags using our online tagging system, here is a list of things you need as well as some others we suggest:

  • White Card Stock is REQUIRED for your tags - Do not use regular paper (the tag will easily pull off of your item and not scan well).  Colored card stock will not scan well at the registers, so please use white cards stock only.
  • Hangers - Child or Adult sized hangers, depending on the size of clothes you are preparing ~ plastic or wire hangers are acceptable.  We recommend kid hangers for size 5 and under and adult hangers for sizes 6 & up.  See notes in the Clothing section about when and where we sell child-sized wire hangers.
  • Clear Packing Tape - Do not use scotch tape, masking tape, or duct tape.
  • Blue Painters Tape - This is great for attaching tags to items you don't want to damage like books, painted furniture, toys with decals, etc.
  • Scissors - A paper cutter is good to cut tags if you have one, but not necessary.
  • Clear Self Sealing Bags - You will use several sizes of these for many different items.
  • Ribbon, String, or Zip Ties - Keeps shoes and multi-pieced items together.
  • Tagging Gun and/or Safety Pins - Size 2 (1 1/2") is the best sizes to use.
  • Plastic Wrap - Great for puzzles.
  • Cleaning Supplies - For cleaning and disinfecting items. We love Magic Erasers!

Fundraising with JBF

JBF has three great ways for your group to raise money.  Two are by selling items and the other is by helping us out when we sort unsold items and pull out donates for our charity partners.

Non-Profit Group Consigning

We love helping area associations and groups by being a fundraising partner! Sign up your group to consign.  Gather items from your group numbers and tag them under the one number assigned to the group.  For non-profit groups, we are pleased to pay 70% on all items sold without the requirement to volunteer and will waive your consignor fee.  Contact Joanie for other eligibility requirements.

PTA Partners

This is a great way to earn money for your school!

  • Sign up your PTA/PTO under one consignor number.  (The check will be made out to the group.)
  • Tag all items under that one number.
  • Make 70% on your items that sell and your consignor fee will be waived.
  • Receive 4 FREE Passes to the PTA Presale (an $80 value).  Additionally, you will receive one Consignor Presale Pass and one Consignor Guest Pass.
  • You can volunteer to shop earlier, but volunteering will not earn you a higher percentage on your sold items.
  • Earn MORE money by spreading the word about JBF with DISCOUNTED/FREE PASSES.  For every Discounted/Free Pass received on 9/1/18 or 9/2/18 marked with your school's name, you will receive a portion of the day's profits. Contact Joanie for more details on how to accomplish this and earn money for your school.  (You have to register with Joanie ahead of time!)

Sort for Savings

This program is designed to help you raise money for your organization.  Organizations volunteer during our sorting time, organizing the unsold items and helping our charity partners by pulling out donated items.  JBF makes a donation to your organization!  It's fun and easy!  Contact Joanie for details.

Consignor Referral Bonus/Big Ticket Item Bonus

Consignor Referral Bonus

Getting your friends involved in JBF Fort Worth not only makes you a hero but also puts more money in your pocket!  We are happy to share our Consignor Referral Bonus program with you!  Here are the details.
 

  1. You tell your friends and family about JBF Fort Worth and get them to consign.
  2. Your friend registers online as a consignor and actually shows up to the sale with their items, meeting the required minimum number/value of items.  (Each consignor's items will be evaluated.  Bringing one pair of shoes marked $50 is not considered as meeting the requirements.  JBF will evaluate each case and make a judgment.)
  3. Your friend emails Joanie@jbfsale.com before the sale and reports who referred them.  Email is the ONLY way referrals will be tabulated.
  4. If your friend has NEVER before consigned at JBF Fort Worth or if they have not consigned since before the Fall 2014 JBF Fort Worth sales event, you will get the Consignor Referral Bonus of $15/referred consignor.
  5. This referral bonus is only paid out to Fall 2018 JBF Fort Worth consignors and it will be added to your consignor check.

It's that easy!  Get 5 new friends to consign at JBF and you'll get an extra $75 in your pocket! 


Big Ticket Item Bonus

JBF shoppers love big items at the sale, so we have a program to reward consignors who bring and sell large items.  Here are the details.
 

  1. You bring a large item and price it $200.00 or higher. 
  2. You may price it to be reduced during the 1/2 Price Sale but the Bonus only applies if it sells for $200 or higher.
  3. You make an additional 10% on that sold item.

Bring your large items and make more money!  This offer cannot be combined with any other special incentive offers other than the extra 10% you receive when volunteering.

DropNGo Tagging Service

Do you have a bunch of great things you would like to sell but you just don't have time to get them tagged?  We have a solution for you and it is our DropNGo Tagging Service.  You have two options with DropNGo:

PreSort Option: 

  • You collect your items making sure they are in clean and working order.  There is a small fee if you have more than 10 stained items.
  • We will accept all seasons of clothing and will hold over your items that are not seasonally appropriate and place them in the next sale.
  • You contact Joanie to sign up.  There are limited spaces available.
  • You are matched with one of our trusted and seasoned consignors who will contact you and make arrangements for you to drop off your items.
  • You bring your items (clothes need to be on hangers or you will need to bring the hangers) to the Tagger's home and she prepares them and takes them to the sale for you.
  • You make 45% on your items that sell with a $25 Consignor Fee.
  • You do receive a Consignor Pass and Consignor Guest Pass to shop the Presale and 1/2 Price Presale Pass and 1/2 Price Guest Presale Pass (available for pick up at Will Call in the Exhibit Hall Concourse.)
  • You pick up your unsold items at the end of the sale, donate them, or make arrangements to participate in our Valet Pick Up or DropNGo Reruns.
  • You sit back and wait to count your money!

NoSort Option:

This option is just like the PreSort Option with the following exceptions:

  • You are not required to sort through any of your clothing items ahead of time to look for stains.
  • There is still a stained item fee but it is not charged until you go over 30 stained items.
  • You will still be required to make sure your non-clothing items are clean and in working order.
  • Your consignor fee will be increased to $35 since your Tagger will spend more time sorting and matching your clothing items.  If you have bins of items and no time to sort through them, this NoSort Option is for you!

DropNGo Reruns

Make more money with JBF by participating in our DropNGo Reruns.  For items that don't sell, we will "rerun" them for a maximum of the next 2 events to hopefully sell them.*  If you enroll in this program, we will pick up your unsold items at the end of "Event 1" (as an example), store them during the off-season, take them to the next event ("Event 2") if seasonally appropriate.  If they don't sell at "Event 2", we will pick them up, store them and take them to the next event, if seasonally appropriate.  "Event 3" will be the last time we will rerun them for you.  The ONLY WAY you can participate in DropNGo Reruns is if you are willing to donate all of your unsold items.

*Some restrictions apply due to storage constraints.  Contact Joanie for more details.

It's that easy!  You can be part of the JBF fun without the tagging!  Contact Joanie for more information!

Perfect Inspection

Perfect Inspection is a way that we are rewarding consignors who didn't have any rejected items from the previous sale.  If you are willing to spend the time at home making sure your items are perfect and none of them are pulled during Inspection or during the sale, we will reward you by allowing you to skip the Inspection process (except for shoes & car seats) at the next event!  Any unacceptable items that are pulled from the floor, including recalled items, items missing batteries, items we do not accept, etc. will be included when we make our Perfect Inspection list.

Those who had Perfect Inspection at the last sale will be notified when they check in at this sale.  The list for those who make Perfect Inspection only goes back to the previous event, so if you miss a sale, your Perfect Inspection from a year ago will not carry forward and you will have to go through Inspection.

We thank you for taking the time at home to bring items in great shape!

Consignor Fees, Mentors, & JBF101

Consignor Fees

Consignors pay a fee to participate.  All consignor fees must be paid online before the sale.  Prepaying helps us plan the event, therefore, the earlier you pay, the easier planning is, so we discount the fee for early birds!  Here is the schedule for online payments. CLICK HERE to pay your Consignor Fee.

Consignor Fee Schedule:

  • Paid online in June - $10 Fee
  • Paid online in July - $12.50 Fee
  • Paid online in August through Drop Off - $15 Fee
  • Not paid at all before Drop Off - $20 will be deducted from your consignor check
  • There is a small handling charge.

If you are paying someone else's fee or if the credit card you are paying with is under a different name than your name on the JBF database, please email Joanie with that information so your fee can be properly credited to you.  You do not have to bring a copy of your fee payment confirmation with you to Drop Off.

Consignor Mentors

We are pleased to offer to our consignors this FREE program where you will be matched with an experienced consignor who will contact you and help you work through all of the details of consigning.  We encourage you to look around the entire website where most of your questions will be answered, but if you need a little extra help from an insider who has been in your shoes, we would love to match you with a Consignor Mentor.  Email Joanie to be matched.

I am here to help YOU make and save money with JBF, while we help our community by keeping extra packaging and waste out of our landfills.  That's what I call a winning combination.
