Consign with Just Between Friends

Just Between FriendsHaving two girls close in age means we have toys, toys, toys! Instead of creating a garage sale pile for the summer, I am going to consign a bunch of our toys at the upcoming Just Between Friends (JBF) sale.

There are two opportunities this March:

To participate, you pay a $10 consignor fee (if you volunteer for select shifts, this fee may be waived). You will earn 65% of what you sell and those who volunteer earn 70%.

Registering as a consignor is very simple and quick to do online. First, decide which sale works for you and head to their website. If you’re interested in consigning at both events, be sure to let them know so they can make sure your consignor number is available for both locations.

Once you sign up, read their tips for packaging your items. They have lots of good information about the entire process on their websites.

For each item you want to sell, you will create a tag using their tagging system. I haven’t started this process yet, but it sounds very straightforward. You will describe the item, set the price, and mark whether you want the unsold item back or donated.

All unsold items will either be available for pick up after the sale, or JBF will donate them for you. Checks are mailed about two weeks after the event–volunteers will have their checks mailed within a couple of days after the sale!

I’m excited to consign with JBF! It’s time to clean house!
