Get Ready for School with Just Between Friends’ August Sale - Consignors invited to register now

July 6, 2011

Summer activities are in full swing – baseball practice, day trips to the beach, and family gatherings. Although the family is busy, parents also have to prepare for the upcoming school year, and Just Between Friends (JBF) has scheduled its next Community Children’s Consignment Sale to help families get ready. The event is scheduled for August 4-6 at the Washington County Fair grounds in West Bend, with a presale event on August 3, for volunteers, consignors, and first-time moms.

 

Consignors can register now. JBF consignors generally make up to 70 percent of what their items sell for, and they get to shop everyone else’s items before the doors are opened to the public. Consignors are able to use an exclusive, free barcode tagging system, which allows them to tag items year round, participate in multiple JBF sales without re-tagging, and track daily sales. This system also provides consignors with an accurate, itemized list of unsold items that they choose to donate to local children’s charities for tax purposes. Unsold items may also be picked up by consignors following the sale.

 

The JBF back-to-school sale will offer everything under one roof – clothes, backpacks, shoes, and more – at a reasonable price. The sale will feature “gently used” children’s clothing in sizes 0 to 18, as well as toys, board and electronic games, DVDs, and books.  All items are inspected before the event for current fashion, stains, tears, and inclusion of all parts. Items will be organized like a children’s store, where everything is divided by gender, size, category, and brand name.

 

“Everyone is looking to make and save money,” said Ammie Maltz. “Becoming a JBF consignor offers many benefits, including a way to make more money on selling pre-owned items than is usually made through rummage sales and traditional consignment stores.”

 

“Our back-to-school sale allows families to fill their closets and toy boxes before the school year begins without overspending at malls or department stores. Shoppers save money by purchasing others’ gently-worn, outgrown, or unused items. Sellers make money by selling their items in an organized sale atmosphere,” Maltz added.

 

Just Between Friends serves more than 260,000 American families in 22 states and provides an opportunity for families to recycle their kids’ clothing and toys. Volunteers operate the sales and have the opportunity to shop early.
