Benefits of Consigning with JBF:
Clean your closets & put cash in your pocket! Average consignor checks are over $300, some earn $1000+!
YOU set your own prices and earn 65% on your sales. There is a $10 consignor fee to participate that comes out of your check, so no money is exchanged.
Volunteer for a 4 hour shift & make 70% on your sales AND shop before the consignors!
Consignors and Volunteers get to shop before the public to find the best deals FIRST! The more you volunteer, the earlier you shop! There are presales before opening day AND before half price day!
Free barcoding website! This gives you a fast & convenient way to price your items and you can track sales online during the event.
Just Between Friends supports local charities, so if you choose to donate your unsold items they go to good use in our local community! If you choose not to donate, all of your items will be sorted and ready for an easy pick up.
When you join our mailing list, you are automatically assigned a consignor number for selling with JBF. This unique number will work at ANY of the 11 Twin Cities JBF Sales with no reprinting. Sweet! Just remember to REGISTER as a consignor for any sale you want to participate in.
**For tags with your OLD consignor number on them, this is the LAST SALE they will be accepted at. You have 2 Options for these tags: 1- REPRINT those tags with your new #. 2- WRITE the UCN (Universal Consignor Number) underneath the old number on any old tags.
*Note! Tags without your new number printed or written on them will NOT be sorted at the end but will be out on a table to claim at pick up. Please be sure to reprint or write the new number on ALL tags.
*After the spring '13 sale, we will no longer accept any tags with your old number on them.
Spend a little extra time prepping your items and we'll reward you for being thorough!
Perfection Inspection Policy
If you have LESS THAN 3 items pulled during dropoff or during the sale, plus you meet the criteria below, you will be considered for our "Perfect Consignor" list! This list allows you to BYPASS INSPECTION at the next sale (which can save you a lot of time!)
Additional Criteria considered:
*Less than 3 items pulled at dropoff or DURING the sale
Must have consigned with us 2 times
*Must bring at least 100 items and mixture of clothes/non-clothing
*Must arrive with everything tagged correctly
*Must sell 50% or more so we know you price to sell
*This list will be updated after each sale and is at the discretion of the sale owners.
*Once on the list, you will stay on our list until we have reason to take you off and ask you to go through inspection again.
*This same list is good at the Elk River, Coon Rapids, Maple Grove or Eagan JBF sales that we run. Other Twin Cities JBF sales may keep their own list.
Tagging guns help to make tagging your clothes go much faster! Purchase a tagging gun kit through our ebay store HERE.
We also sell bags of 200 large pins for $4, email Kris to purchase these.
You can purchase a tagging kit or safety pins at our New Consignor Workshops (see info at left)
When using a tagging gun, tag ONLY in the SEAM of the clothing or through the clothing size tag, so you don't put a hole in clothes! Items with holes from tagging barbs will be rejected at dropoff if not tagged properly. To ensure tags stay put, some consignors also put a small piece of scotch tape over the tag/barb area.
