Shoes

Shoes – near perfect condition.  We are accepting NB to Adult sized shoes.

Clothing

Newborn thru size 20.

Junior Clothing – Sorry we are no longer accepting junior sizes.

Just Between Friends is also unable to accept the consignment of children's upper outerwear clothing size 2T-12 that contains drawstrings at the neck or hood. Children's upper outerwear clothing size 2T-16 can not contain drawstrings, at the waist or bottom, that are longer than 3 inches.  Please Click Here for the CPSC's Drawstring Guidelines

Maternity Clothes – All seasons accepted. 5yrs or newer and only great brands as follows- Due Maternity, Motherhood Maternity, Isabella Oliver Maternity, Euphoria Maternity, Pickles & Ice Cream Maternity Apparel, A Pea in the Pod, Belly Dance Maternity, Unbuttoned Contemporary Maternity, BellaBlu Maternity, Posh Maternity, Crave, Destination Maternity, Mimi, Gap and Old Navy and other boutique clothes.

  • Clothing must be current season and fashion. We do NOT accept out of date clothing (must be within 5 years)
  • Check for stains, holes and tears.
  • Clean and press items.
  • All Multi piece clothing items are required to be safety pinned together through all pieces. (if selling item with an accessory such as a hat or pair of socks, safety pin accessory to clothing item)
  • Replace missing buttons, sew loose hems and seams, and clip loose threads.
  • Button all buttons, snap all snaps, zip all zippers.
  • Sleepers, gowns, and onesies should be placed in Ziploc bags and securely taped shut with clear packing tape if being priced under $3 (you may place multiple items in a bag but please make sure the bag is not overstuffed). Size 24 months and above must be hung on a hanger.
  • Sort all clothing by gender and size for easy drop off.
  • Child size PLASTIC hangers are required or 3T and under. Only PLASTIC hangers are accepted. When hanging pants, attach safety pins to the TOP part of the hanger to ensure that pant will not slide.  We attempt to remove hangers from the hung clothing items that are sold. These hangers will be available to consignors on a first come first serve basis during pickup.  Hangers can be found inexpensively at most discount stores such as Wal-Mart, Target, the Dollar Stores, and thrift stores.  Several department stores will give you leftover hangers...call them toward the evening hours (Old Navy, Carters Fred Meyer, Shopko, Children's Place, etc).
  • Clothing should be hung with the hanger hook pointing left. (hanger will resemble a question mark when looking at front of item)
  • If hanging shirt and pant set on 1 hanger, safety pin thru both clothing pieces AND through the top of hanger (this will prevent pants from weighing down the shirt and causing a possible tear). DO NOT safety pin pants to the bottom of the shirt OR bottom of the hanger.
  • Rubber band or zip tie hangers together if selling multi piece items on multiple hangers. (remember to safety pin items together) Tag Gun: If you are interested in ordering a tag gun, please let me know (I have many many brand new Arrow tagging guns and tagging supplies).  Remember to be very careful when using a tag gun and tag through the size tag or inside seam, since we will not accept clothing with holes.
  • Safety pins: Please use 1" or larger safety pins: NO straight pins or small gold safety pins.
  • Tag Location: Attach tag with a safety pin/tag gun to the LABEL OF SHIRT or UPPER RIGHT SIDE OF PANTS. (you may also safety pin tag on upper right side of shirt, as you are looking at the item) Make sure you can see the tag easily.  If you use a tag gun, insert the gun in label or inside seam NOT through part of the clothing (to avoid making hole/tear in garment). PULL on the tag to make sure it is properly secured and will not come off easily.  You can reinforce the tag by taping over the platic tag to the label (import for higher priced items).
  • Tags MUST be pulled out (not tucked inside clothing) so they are easily visible.

Note: Sets sell well so match things up if you can. Make sure that the sizes are the same.

Note: As kids reach the pre-teen sizes (14-20), they are very particular. Clothing must be in excellent condition and very CURRENT style. All the tags brought to the sale must be bar-coded using www.myjbftags.com

Quality Over Quantity

JBF strives to be the industry leader and uphold the highest standards in the consignment industry.  Our goal is to provide high quality products that are current, clean and complete in addition to making family safety a priority. To achieve our goal, we’re implementing the following new policies:

Perfect Inspection Policy - We have come up with a tangible way to thank our consignors who consistently follow the JBF guidelines and bring great items to the sale. Here’s how it works:

Your items will be inspected at the sale:

If you have more than three unacceptable JBF items (stained, damaged, incomplete, or recalled) that are pulled at drop off or during the sale, your consignor number will be eliminated from our “Perfect Inspection” list. Then at the next sale you will have to go through a detailed inspection process.

The “Perfect Inspection” list will be posted on the JBF site after the sale. If your consignor number appears on the list then you will bypass the inspection at the next sale saving you serious time at drop off. We appreciate those consignors who spend the extra time at home ensuring that their items are high quality and tagged correctly!

Safety First

A JBF Priority

Although we do have a recall specialist on site during consignor drop off and we provide the latest recall information on our website, ultimately it is the responsibility of our consignors to make sure all of their items meet the required safety standards.

Unacceptable JBF Items Policy

Despite our best efforts during inspection at consignor drop off, occasionally unacceptable JBF items such as stained, incomplete, defective or recalled items are over looked. These items will continue to be immediately removed from the sales floor and cataloged (see Perfect Inspection Policy). Consignors may claim these items in the designated area at consignor pick up.  This process will help make us aware of those consignors who are not following JBF guidelines. To avoid loss of consignor privileges, please take the necessary time to carefully inspect all of your items BEFORE consignor drop off.

Perfect Consignors-UPDATED!!!

A tangible way to thank our consignors who consistently follow the JBF guidelines and bring great items to the sale.

If you have less than three stained, damaged, or unacceptable items pulled at drop off or during the sale (and zero recalled items), you will be added to a list which allows you to skip inspection during drop off at the next sale. This saves you lots of time at Drop Off!

We appreciate those consignors who spend the extra time at home ensuring that their items are stain free and tagged correctly!

REMEMBER: Perfect Consignor status is earned each sale. Spend extra time inspecting items at home so that you earn perfect status for the next sale!
