With 4 full days of selling opportunities, your hard work pays off! Our average consingor check for the Fall 2012 event was nearly $400!
As a consignor you make 60% of your sales and you set the price of each of the items you put in the sale. Your $10 consignor fee will be taken out of your check. (Volunteers make 65-70% of their sales!)
JBF has earned a reputation for quality items, which is why we have only the BEST gently used items for shoppers to choose from. Not having to sort through junk means shoppers will buy more and spend more on your incredible things.
Consignors and Helpers get to shop before the public to find the best deals FIRST on Thursday, April 11th.
JBF offers a free bar coding website. This will allow you a fun, fast & convenient way to price your items and track your sales!
You can put anything and everything that has to do with raising a child in the sale: clothing (spring/summer), shoes, toys, baby equipment, games...and maternity clothes!
Just Between Friends- Folsom supports local charities, so if you choose to donate your unsold items they go to use in our local community immediately to help moms and kids in need! If you choose not to donate, all of your items will be sorted and ready for pick up Sunday, April 14th between 8pm-9pm.
Outlined below are resources and guidelines to help you get started:

Entering Tags Video
Merchandise Prep Videos
Print your tags using the following guidelines:
All tags must be created using our free on line tagging site. To enter, go to your PROFILE (top right corner of page) and go to ENTER TAGS
Use only white 8.5 X 11 CARDSTOCK, 67lb minimum. No regular copy paper or glitter paper will be accepted.
Use the Print Tags (Alternative) to print 6 tags per sheet versus 4 with the Print Tags method. Adobe Acrobat must be installed on your printer to use this option.
Please print with best quality to ensure the items can be read by scanners.
Do not shrink tag size as they cannot be read by scanners.
TIP: If you cannot print your tags at home please consider using a friend’s, relative’s or the library's computer/printer for your bar-coded tags.
Tagging with safety pins: Please use size 2 (1 1/2") or larger safety pins; no straight pins or small gold ones. Remember all multi-piece clothing items must be safety pinned together through all pieces. This will prevent your items from separating.
Tagging with a tagging gun: We highly recommend the use of using a tagging gun! It makes tagging much more efficient, and it leaves almost no markings when used properly. To purchase a tagging gun, please email Jill.
All tags should be put through the garment's tag at the back of the neck or waist. If a garment tag does not exist, please put the tag through the left underarm seam/waistband seam so that the material is not damaged by the tagging barb.
The tag needs to hang on the right side of the garment (when looking at the item) whenever possible since all other tags will be on that side.
Clothing should be placed on the hanger in the direction of "?" mark.
Please hang size 0-6mo garments on child size hangers. Use adult size hangers when appropriate - to prevent the item(s) from falling off of hangers.
Safety pin clothing sets securely with pants hung on the backside of the shirt, so both pieces can be viewed without unpinning them.
Safety pin through BOTH pieces AND through the hanger (this will prevent pants from weighing down the shirt and causing a possible tear).
You can also use 2 hangers to display a "set", securing the tops of the hangers together with a rubberband or zip tie.
Please safety pin pants to the top part of the hanger so the garment will not slide.
Hangers: (Plastic or wire hangers are acceptable.) Everything that can be hung on a hanger, should be put on a hanger (this includes pj's, sleepers), This allows the shopper to better view your items, without having to take things out of plastic baggies to do so.
You do not need to purchase pant hangers. To attach pants to wire hangers, simply use safety pins and fasten pants to the top part of the hanger so the garment will not slide.
Many local merchants give their hangers away ~ just call them before you go out to make sure they have an ample supply.
Hangers will not be returned on clothing that is sold.

This is a great opportunity for over-worked Mom's who are short on time but still wish to participate in our sale, shop early and make a lot of money on their great items! Our valet tagging team will prepare your items for you, and even take them to the event for you. Valet consignors make 40% profit on their sold consigned items.
Bring your clean, sorted clothes, toys, books, games and other items to the designated Valet Tagger. Clothing must be on hangers and a completed Valet Tagging Waiver is required when you drop off your items!
The valet tagger prepares and tags your items (you have 1 day to approve the tags), takes them to the sale, puts them on the sales floor AND you still make 40%.
You will be given a pre-sale pass to attend the consignor pre-sale on Thursday before the sale opens to the public (see full sale schedule) and you get to bring 1 guest!
Please read your Valet Consignor Waiver carefully - even if you have participated in the program before, it is important to take a moment to reread this document.
Are you on the list? This list compiles all Consignors at the Greater Sacramento Area events that have passed our inspection process and get to SKIP inspection at the next event. This saves time at drop off so you can quickly put out your items for sale. You can be on this list too. Participate in an event with less than 3 items pulled from the sales floor for stains, missing pieces, dirty/worn, holes, missing batteries, paper tags, mini tags, handwritting on tags or cut off stars, etc. Congratulations to these amazing Consignors for their diligence in making sure all their products are in tip-top condition.
