CONSIGNOR FAQs

Q. Who can consign their items and become a seller?
A. Anyone can consign their children's items with Just Between Friends. We request that you have a minimum of 20 items or $100 worth of items.

Q. Who does the pricing?
A. You set your own price and you get to decide if it is discounted on our 50% off sale days. A "star" on your tags means that item will remain full price throughout the sale.

Q. Should I "star" my items for the half-price sale?
A. Be selective with the clothes you choose to star. We suggest that you let all your clothing items be included in the 1/2 price sales (no star). However, you are welcome to mark the starting price up, if it is something you are sentimental about. But, of course, it is your decision. Remember, "starred" items WILL remain full price and customers tend to buy a lot of non-starred items on discount days.

Q. What kind of paper do I use to print my tags?
A. White card stock only.

Q. I am a smoker.  Can I sell my items?
A. We cannot accept ANY items that have odors of any kind. When clothing is hung on the racks with other clothes, the odor effects the items around them. We must be sensitive to children and families with allergies, we are unable to sell any items with smoke odor, pet odor, or any other kind of odor. Clothing with pet hair is also unacceptable.  We recommend washing your items throughly and spraying them with freshener such as Febreeze.

Q. How long should I give myself to drop-off my items?
A. We have a check-in table coordinated by a greeter who will help you get signed in and is available to answer any questions. It typically takes about 30 minutes per 100 items to drop-off.  You place your items in the designated areas around the sales floor. Items will be inspected after drop off.  Any unaccepted items will be available at pick up.  We have a limited number of rolling racks and utility carts that can be used inside the building. Bring your clothing organized by gender, with each each size bound with a rubber band for faster drop off.

Q. Will I know what items have sold?
A. Yes, with our barcoding system, you will be able to see a sales report detailing all the items you have sold throughout the sale days.  Sales are posted LIVE!  Also, if you donate items at the end of the sale you will be able to print off an inventory list for your tax purposes and we will email you a donation receipt with your check.

Q. What percentage of my items can I expect to sell?
A. Most consignors sell approximately 80% of their items in sizes 2-10 when priced reasonably and marked for discount. For sizes under 24 months the percentage drops due to the sheer volume of merchandise received. Remember, people tend to receive infant clothing as gifts, hand-me-downs, etc.

Supply Tips:

● Use good quality safety pins. Cheap safety pins bend and fold. They won't hold the weight of the clothing.
● Use 65lb. white card stock at minimum. Regular weight paper (20lb.) will not be accepted. It tears and folds easily.
● Zip-ties (Cable-ties) can be used to secure tags to a variety of items; toys, furniture, and shoes (manditory). Purses, backpacks, diaper bags and baby carriers also need to be zip-tied to hangers.

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 accept breast pumps; however, we cannot accept the plastic tubing or breast cups that accompany them.

Package:  Please zip-tie items to an adult-size hanger. If you would like to place high-priced items (over $20) in our High Value Cabinet near Checkout, please see a volunteer at Drop Off for assistance.

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

Tag:  All tags must be printed on white card stock. Place packing tape along the top of the tag (essentially laminating it for security) & hole-punch JBF tag and attach it to item with a zip tie. If item contains multiple pieces, be sure all pieces are included and list number of items on JBF tag description.

Bedding, Blankets & Textiles

Please be selective when selling blankets, receiving blankets, burp cloths, and towels. New and barely used items sell best. Check carefully for stains.  Bedding, such as comforters and crib sets, will not be accepted for the JBF Shawnee sale. 

Hanging:  All sheets, blankets, burp clothes, etc. need to be hung.  Adult plastic tube hangers or dry cleaner hangers with cardboard bottoms work best.  Secure these items to the hanger by pinning directly under the bottom of the hanger after folding item in half over the hanger.

Blankets
Quilts
Towels
Burp Clothes
Mattress Protectors
Sheet Protectors
Carriers
Diaper Bags

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: All tags must be printed on white card stock. With hanger forming a "?", pin tag to the upper right corner of the hanging item.

Books, Games, DVDs, Arts & Crafts

Be sure that parts/games to video game systems (such as Vtech) cannot be separated or switched out at the sale.  Video games will be in a locked cabinet near checkout to prevent theft.  Leave video games with greeter at drop off.

Tag:  All tags must be printed on white card stock. 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 books, games, and video games. Please do not use masking or double sided tape.  Do not tape tags directly on wooden puzzles, which will tear stickers on puzzle.  Hole-punch JBF tag and tie to sets.

HOW TO:

Hanging:  Hangers - Wire (preferred) and plastic tube hangers are accepted.  No store hangers, swivel, or pant hangers.  Please hang clothes so the hanger hook points to the left (like a question mark). Hang size 0-4t clothing on child-size or adult-size hangers and sizes 5 & up and maternity clothing on adult-size hangers.

Safety Pins - Please use #1 or larger safety pins.  No mini safety pins, they do not hold the clothing.

Secure clothing with safetly pins onto the hanger. Clothing that falls off the hanger onto the floor does not sell well.  

Clothing Sets - Sets tend to sell better (under size 6) so match tops and bottoms up if you can. Safety pin to attach clothing sets securely with bottom garment hung on the backside of the shirt at the top of the hanger, so both pieces can be viewed without separating them. Important: When hanging additional clothing items to the hanger, pin through the hanger so the weight of the item is on the hanger and NOT on the other clothing piece/s.  See instuctional video for further help.

Pants/Shorts/Skirts - Safety pin waist to top of hanger.  Safety pins should be closer together than the diagonal portion of the hanger is long, so that the item will not slide around the hanger.  Another option is to use dry clearner hangers with paper.  Pinning through the paper will keep pants/shorts/skirts from sliding around the hanger.

TIP  - When hanging strappy items or items such as skirts or pants (items that can easily slide around on the hanger), use either dry cleaner hangers with the paper still attached or create a "tab" on either side of the top of the hanger with packing tape to pin the item/s through.  This will prevent the item/s from sliding around and bunching up on the hanger.

Onesies and tights - including new-in-package, need to be hung. 

Maternity - Please secure tops with safety pins to the hanger since they have a tendency to fall off.
All pants must be pinned at the waist to the top of the hangers so shoppers can see them easily.  Pants folded over hangers will not be accepted.  Maternity pants only may be hung on pant hangers.
Breastfeeding tops are accepted with maternity clothing.

Socks, hats, and infant mittens - are best pinned together, not in bags.  For multiple pairs of socks, place in clear zip-top bag.  Secure all bags closed with packing tape.

Hanging Clothing Video
**Note: JBF OP and Shawnee do not allow pant hangers.  Wire and plastic tube hangers only.""

PriceClothing - Clothing should be priced at a minumum of $3.  If a single piece of clothing does not have a $3 value, it is a good idea to pin multiple items to a single hanger to reach at least $3.  0-24 month clothing should be priced competitively, there is a lot of clothing in this size range.  Clothing 2t and above can be priced slightly higher.  Price items for what you would want to pay at a JBF sale.  It is highly recommended that clothing items go 50% off on the last day of the sale.

Tag:  All tags must be printed on white card stock.

Clothing on Hangers - Tags should be safety pined to the top right corner of shirts and/or pants.  When using a tagging gun, place tag through clothing tag.  If there is no tag, place in inside seam of the garment.  DO NOT put tagging gun needle through cloth of garment, it will get ruined.  Items with holes from tagging guns can not be sold.  Tagging Gun Dos and Don'ts guidelines.

Non-Hanging Items - Please use safety pins or tagging gun to attach tags to socks, infant mittens, hats, and accessories. For items in self-seal bags, the tag can be placed inside the bag, then sealed shut with packing tape. Avoid plastic bags where possible.

Shoes

Make sure that shoes are clean, clean, clean!  We will be VERY selective with shoes during Consignor Drop Off & Inspection. Shoes must be current season.

Package: Fasten shoes together with zip ties. For shoes that do not have anywhere to zip tie, you may put the shoes in a clear self-seal bag.  This is to be used as a last resort. We prefer no shoe boxes. However, if shoes are in the box, please place tag on shoes in case box gets separated.

Price: Shoes must be in good condition and should start at $3.00.

Tag: All tags must be printed on white card stock. Place a small piece of packing tape on the top of the shoe tag, essentially laminating the top of the tag for security.  Punch a hole in the top of your tag and attach the tag to the shoes with zip ties only.  For shoes in a clear self-seal bags, put the tag inside the bag and tape the bag shut with clear packing tape.

Clean all toys and baby equipment thoroughly. 

Please test to make sure that toys and equipment are working properly. Battery operated toys must include working batteries (these can be purchased inexpensively at local discount stores).
