  4. If selling a carseat or crib, bring your signed Car Seat Checklist and/or Crib Waiver.
  5. If you are a 1st time consignor, or had too many items pulled during the last event, you will need to take your items through inspection before they are put out on the floor. You will receive an email if you had too many items pulled.
  6. You may use any rolling clothing racks, utility carts or other available equipment to help bring your items into the sale and put them out on the sales floor. Please DO NOT LEAVE CARTS OR RACKS IN THE PARKING LOT. They will also roll away if unattendend, so please help prevent runaway carts! They are heavy and can cause serious damage.

  • Depending on how many items you are bringing, drop off can take 15 minutes to over 1 hour. Separating and sorting your clothing items by gender and size will greatly reduce the time necessary to hang your items.

Bags & Baby Carriers

Diaper bags, infant carriers, backpacks, and purses are great consignment items. Please inspect all items carefully to make sure items have not been recalled, stained, damaged or are missing pieces. We do not accept "knock-offs" or "fake" items.

Package: Please zip-tie items to an adult-size hanger or place items in the basket under the hanging bags.

Price: Price 50% - 75% off retail. Items in great condition tend to sell very well.

Tag: Hole-punch JBF tag and attach it to item with ribbon, string or zip-ties. If item contains multiple pieces, be sure all pieces are included and list number of items on JBF tag description.

Bedding, Blankets & Textiles

Bedding sizes accepted are bassinet through full/queen only and must be for children. Please be selective when selling bedding, blankets, receiving blankets, burp cloths, and towels. New and barely used items sell best. Check carefully for stains; shoppers get very disappointed if they find a stain in a bundled blanket once they get home.

Package: Put bedding/crib/bedroom sets together in original packaging or in giant clear plastic bags. Arrange bedding sets inside bag so that shoppers can see all of the items as well as the design/pattern. Secure the bag so that items do not get separated. Bundle blankets, cloths, and towels with ribbon or string, safety pins or in bags, like a package (be sure multiple pieces cannot be separated).

Price: Price to sell! Shoppers are less likely to purchase these items used, so prices have to be low. Try to price 75% - 90% off retail.

Tag: If bedding is in a plastic bag, attach tag securely with packaging tape to the inside of the bag and tape the bag shut. If bedding/blankets are bundled with string, attach tag directly to blanket with a safety pin and tuck it under the ribbon/string so that it does not easily get pulled off when shifting around during the sale.

Books, Games, DVDs, Arts & Crafts

Books, movies, board games, puzzles, video games, video game systems, scrapbook, arts & crafts sets are great items for resale. Please only bring kids’, parenting, homeschooling, pregnancy and child rearing books. Games and puzzles must have all pieces. (No "adult" content please, children's movies only.) Check items to ensure they are in great condition.

Package: Use clear, self-seal bags or clear cling wrap (saran wrap) to hold multiple items together; Tie sets of books together with ribbon/string. Be sure that parts/games to video game systems cannot be separated or switched out at the sale.

Price: Prices can range from $.50 to $50 in this category, depending on the item. Price to sell especially for books & DVDs as there are always lots to choose from at the sale.

Tag: When tagging books, please attach your tag to the book with clear tape that can be removed without damaging the item. Tape tag to the outside cover of glossy books and to the inside cover of books that will easily tear when removing the tag. Please do not use masking or double sided tape. Hole-punch JBF tag and tie to sets.

Clothing

We sell children's clothing Newborn through size 20 (limit 10 girl's junior size items, Abercrombie, Hollister, Roxy, American Eagle, Nike, Volcom, Burton preferred) as well as maternity sizes (limit 20 maternity clothing items per consignor). Our Spring Sale warm weather clothing only (no heavy coats, winter clothing, holiday items, etc). Be picky. Look at your clothing items as if you were going to purchase them. No stained or damaged items will be accepted. We do NOT accept women's clothing except for maternity. Please freshly clean your clothing items. Replace missing buttons, sew loose hems and seams, and clip loose threads. Please button all buttons, snap all snaps, zip all zippers before you arrive at drop off. This will ensure that there are no defects in the clothing. The newer the item looks (and the better it smells), the better it will sell. We do not accept items that smell of smoke or pets.

Package & Hang: Hangers - Please hang clothes so the hanger hook points to the left (like a question mark). Hang size 0-6 clothing on child-size hangers and sizes 7-20 and maternity clothing on adult-size hangers. Clothing that falls off the hanger onto the floor does not sell well.You can place a safety pin through the shoulder of the garment to better secure it to the hanger. Old Navy and many outlet stores are great places to get free hangers (they throw away hangers daily!) and WalMart & Target sell child-size plastic tube hangers at a great price. JBF Lakeland also sells children's wire hangers. Email heatherlineberger@jbfsale.com.

Clothing Sets - Sets tend to sell better (under size 6) so match things up if you can. Safety pin or use a tagging gun to attach clothing sets securely with bottom garment hung on the backside of the shirt, so both pieces can be viewed without separating them.

Pants/Shorts - Pant-clip hangers are great but if you use a standard hanger, simply use a safety pin to attach pants to the top part of the hanger so the garment will not slide. Onesies, socks, tights, hats and infant mittens can be placed in a clear zip-lock bag (you may group multiple items in one bag). Please be sure to label your tag well so that customers know if the items are short-sleeve onesies or long-sleeve onesies, etc.

Price: Hanging Clothing - Put outfits/set together to price for at least $3.00; Start at $3 for basic, generic brand 0-24mo outfit. Add $1 each for larger size, name brand, formal, and heavy/winter. Non-hanging Clothing - Put sets together to price for at least $3.00, but okay to price for less (i.e., 6 pair of socks for $1.50).

Tag: Clothing on Hangers - Attach tag with a tagging gun or safety pin to the label of shirt or upper right front. Insert the gun in a label or inside seam NOT through part of the clothing (to avoid making a hole or tear in the clothing). Also, pull on the tag to make sure it is properly secured and will not come off easily. Please make sure consignor tags are pulled out of the clothing so they are easily visible to the customers. Non-Hanging Clothing - Please use tagging gun or safety pins to attach tags to onesies, socks, tights, infant mittens, and accessories. Be sure to also attach multiple pieces together. Then put these items into clear zip-lock bags.

Quality Matters!

We inspect every item that comes into our event and remove any items that do not meet JBF's strict quality guidelines. If you are a brand new consignor, or have had more than 3 items removed from our previous sale for quality or recalls, you will be required to go through an inspection process during drop off before we can sell your items.

All items at JBF are required to be checked for recalls, be in clean working condition (with batteries) and have no missing parts. Clothing may not have any rips, stains, pulls, or be overly worn - when in doubt, toss it out. Shoes should be in excellent, like new condition.

JBF Motto

To Glorify God by bringing communities and families together in a welcoming, friendly venue that allows them to care for their children and be good stewards of what they have been given.

We do not take for granted the good that comes from each sales event or the trust our families place in our commitment to hold safe, family-supportive event, season after season. We are dedicated to our communities because we are a part of these communities. We are moms, dads, aunts, uncles and grandparents who are invested in making our small parts of the world a better place. We are bargain lovers, of course, but beyond that, we believe in being good stewards of our resources--taking care of each other and reaching out a hand to those who need it (as we all do at one time or another).
