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 60% on sales!

  • Become a JBF Team Member and help out with a 4 hour shift & you'll make 70% on your sales AND shop before the consignors!
  • Consignors and Team Members get to shop before the public to find the best deals FIRST! The more you can help out, 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.

Buy your Consignor Ticket

New for Spring 2014, we are moving to PREPAYING THE CONSIGNOR FEE as well as SCHEDULING ALL DROPOFFS!

FIRST: Log into your JBF account and check the box to Register as a Consignor.

SECOND: Go to EVENTBRITE and purchase your Consignor Ticket.  You will be asked to pay your $12 Consignor Fee with a credit card as well as choose your dropoff time. 

***Pre-purchasing this Consignor Ticket will secure your consignor spot for the upcoming sale. Your Consignor fee is Non-Refundable should your plans change. You WILL be able to log back into your account to change the dropoff time if necessary. 

*The Eventbrite site will close at 10pm on Monday, March 17th. Make sure to purchase your consignor ticket before then!

We REWARD Great Consignors!

Spend a little extra time prepping your items and we'll reward you for being thorough with our PERFECT CONSIGNOR LIST!

Perfection Inspection Policy
If you have 3 OR LESS items pulled during dropoff AND during the sale, PLUS you meet ALL of the criteria below, you will be added to 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:
*THREE OR LESS items pulled at dropoff AND 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, only plastic hangers, etc.
*Barcodes must be legible & scan properly
*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 Coon RapidsMaple Grove or Eagan JBF sales that we run. Other Twin Cities JBF sales may keep their own list.
Wondering if you made the list? Check HERE

How Dropoff Works for our Perfect Consignors:
*We’ll have a Perfect Consignors self check-in space at dropoff where you’ll fill out the consignor waiver and any large item claim tickets, then you will go directly to putting out your items.  (NO Inspection for you lucky duck!) We'll check you in on the computer later so you don't need to wait for that either! We’ll be around if you have any Q’s. 

We DO want you to register for a dropoff time in Eventbrite so we have adequate racks, but you can come EITHER day of drop-off and will NOT need to wait in any lines. (Yippee!)

 

 

All things TAGGING:

Purchase a Tagging Gun Kit:

Tagging guns are OPTIONAL, but do 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, replacement bags of 1000 barbs for $4. Email Kris to purchase these items.

You can purchase a tagging kit or safety pins at our New Consignor Workshops too! (see class info at left).

Please Note!!!
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.

Starting Spring 2014, you will need to:
1- REGISTER as a Consignor in your JBF Profile
2-PURCHASE a CONSIGNOR TICKET through Eventbrite to prepay your Consignor fee AND Choose your dropoff time
*Eventbrite link closes Monday 3/17 @ 10pm

2 Dropoff Days Available: 

Tuesday, March 18th:
2-7:30pm: Schedule your dropoff today for those with OVER 200 items OR those on our Perfect Consignor List

Pickup will be Thurs. March 27th; 2-7pm
*All items not picked up by 7:01pm will be immediately donated to our charity and a tax receipt issued. Sorry, no exceptions!

In a nutshell- you gather and clean your items then pay a per-item fee for us to tag your items for you and you still earn the full 60% on your sales or 70% if you can also help out during the event!
