JBF Dane County EastI dropped off my bags of books and toys to the JBF Dane County East sale yesterday. This sale is located at the Madison Curling Club in McFarland.

Although, I preferred the DeForest location for closeness, the Curling Club is MUCH larger. And, by looking at the pictures on JBF’s Facebook page, the spring consignors had no problems filling it up!

This is a great one-stop shop for lots of children’s clothing, toys, maternity clothes, baby items, and on, and on, and on!

The sale runs tomorrow through Saturday:

  • Thursday, May 3: 9am–6pm
  • Friday, May 4: 9am-6pm
  • Saturday, May 5: 9am-6pm – 50% off Day! (some items will not be on sale–the decision is up to each consignor)

Thursday requires a $3 admission fee, but you can get in for free with this coupon. Admission is free on Friday and Saturday.

Let me know if you score any great deals!

The Curling Club is located at 4802 Marsh Road in McFarland.

Great Deals on Kids Clothes and Toys this Weekend at JBF

Just Between FriendsThe Just Between Friends sale opens at 10 a.m. today! There’s a $3 entry fee, but you can print a FREE admission coupon here.

I was able to shop last night because I’m a consignor. Having older girls, I didn’t think I’d find much for them, but I did get quite a few things.

I picked up a really cute Flapadoodles outfit–no idea if my daughter will wear it, but I thought it was adorable and worth the risk! I got some other cute clothes including dresses and a pair of capris. For my older daughter I was able to find some American Girl books that I think she might like. One is about entering middle school–we’ve had luck with their other books, so I thought I’d give these a shot.

If you’re thinking about consigning with JBF, head to the sale to get a feel for how the packaging looks and what people are selling. As I walked around the sale I saw lots of things I could have sold. I only put in about 15 items because I’ve been sick, and I wasn’t sure what to expect. Now that I’ve shopped the sale and have been through the tagging process, I know what to expect for future sales.

The best part is you can tag your items all year, so in theory I should start tagging for the next sale now! It’s a great feeling to drop off a carload of stuff and get it out of the house. Consignors make 65% of their sales (70% if you volunteer at the sale) and can either pick up what doesn’t sell, or mark it to be donated. JBF takes care of the rest!

I’m sold–I’ll be consigning at future sales. The sale this weekend is at the DeForest Comfort Inn & Suites:

  • Friday, March 9: 10am to 8pm (free admission with this coupon)
  • Saturday, March 10: 10am to 6pm
  • Sunday, March 11: 10am to noon – 50% off Day! (some items will not be on sale–consignors discretion)

There’s also a sale at the end of March in Verona. I’ll write about that one as it gets closer. If you want to consign, head to their website and sign up!
