  • Allow approximately 30 min - 1 hour for drop off. Depends on quantity of items.
     
  • Drop off time will be quicker if you have your clothing items separated by size and gender (rubber-banding sizes together will help prevent them from separating when transporting your clothes to the sale).  Know your item count for the inspector.  This is the TOTAL OF ALL ITEMS, not just clothing.

Bags & Baby Carriers

We accept:

Diaper bags, infant carriers, backpacks, and purses are great consignment items. Please inspect all items carefully for stains, damage & missing pieces.  Check company recall lists to ensure they have not been recalled.

Package:  Zip-tie items to an adult-size wire or tube hanger.  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.

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. 

Blankets on a hanger sell best!

No bumper pads allowed - not even with sets.

 

Books, Games, DVDs, Arts & Crafts

Books, book sets, board games, puzzles, scrapbook, arts & crafts sets are great items for resale.  Only bring kids’, parenting, homeschooling, pregnancy and child rearing books.

NO rated R videos, books or games!  NO college textbooks.

DO NOT BRING LARGE NUMBERS OF THE SAME ITEMS -- For example, 5 books of the same title from the same consignor are likely NOT to sell through.  Please limit the number of same items.

Games and puzzles must have all pieces. 

Sorting your books on the sales table by genre will help them sell.

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 or painter's tape. 

ITEMS THAT WILL BE DAMAGED BY THE USE OF PACKING TAPE (CLEAR OR OTHERWISE) WILL NOT BE ACCEPTED OR WILL BE PULLED FROM THE FLOOR.  

 

Clothing

We sell children's clothing, newborn through size 14/16.   Junior size brands such Abercrombie, Hollister, Roxy, American Eagle, and Nike are preferred.  Any items that look like "mom's" clothes are not acceptable.  

Only maternity brands are accepted for maternity wear.  Adult clothing is not accepted.  Maternity is limited to 10 items per consignor.  All seasons accepted for maternity.

No items with stains, tears, missing buttons, loose threads, overwear, excessive pilling or damage will be accepted.  Items must be odor and pet-hair free.  Anything smelling of smoke will not be accepted.  

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.

Hang size 0-5 clothing on child-size hangers and sizes 6-16 and maternity clothing on adult-size hangers. Clothng in ziploc bags do not sell well.  DO NOT BEND HANGERS TO FIT SMALL CLOTHING!

Clothing Sets sell well (under size 6) so match things up if you can -- be sure items are the same size.  Using two hangers is best, but face the "back side" accordingly so the front can be seen.  Do not use safety pins or a tagging gun to attach clothing that "hangs" one garment from the other.  This may cause the pins/barbs to tear holes in the items as they are shifted on the racks.  If you use a tagging gun, do NOT pierce the clothing - insert through seam lines or through the clothing tag.

 

Furniture & Baby Equipment

Check exersaucers, swings, high chairs, changing tables, strollers, bath seats, baby walkers, car seats & car seat accessories, etc,  for safety recalls BEFORE bringing the item to the sale.

Equipment must have all parts, and be in good condition. Children's furniture - beds (toddler, twin), desks, side tables, dressers, etc. are acceptable for sale
