STEP 1: Gather Your Items

START HERE! =>JBF CONSIGNOR GUIDE

Every room in your home has items that your children are no longer wearing or using. It's time to gather everything and to declutter your home. 

WHAT DO WE ACCEPT for the FALL/WINTER?

Here's where to check (Click HERE for graphic):

• Attic or Basement Storage
• Kid's Bedroom
• Mom's Closet
• Linen Closet
• Bathroom
• Living Room
• Mud Room or Hall Closet
• Kitchen
• Playroom
• Garage
• Outside

Our wide selection of items is one of the TOP 5 reasons why shoppers love JBF!

STEP 2: Organize in 30mins or less

Once you have a pile of things your kids are no longer using it's time to decide if you should KEEP, SELL or TOSS each item.

Place each item into one of three tubs labeled - KEEP, SELL or TOSS

KEEP - items that you aren't ready to part with yet. Maybe you're thinking about having another child or maybe the item is too sentimental. That's ok! Keep it. These items may also be for the next season - not this upcoming sale.
SELL - Items you want to sell
TOSS - Items that don't meet JBF Standards. This is typically your donate pile.

When you're done set aside the KEEP tub and revisit it later. Take the TOSS tub to your local charity, repurpose the items or throw them away. The SELL tub is now ready to tag and prep!! You Ready?!

STEP 3: Prepping before you Tag

FULL CONSIGNOR GUIDE

It is highly recommended to sort items by size/gender and group like items before you begin tagging/pricing.  This will make your tagging go so much faster.  For example:

CLOTHING

  1. Put all your (size 2) items on hangers and sort them by gender
  2. Group all the (size 2) pants together, size 2 dresses, size 2 outfits, etc.
  3. Optional - further organize by brand (Basic/Discount, Chain store, Premium, Designer). See Pricing Guide.
  4. TIP: Hang size NB to 5T on infant/youth hangers, hang size 6 and up on adult hangers. ALL hangers accepted.

BABY GEAR

  1. Go ahead and check for recalls now, before you go any further.
  2. Gather all the accessories and manuals and place with the appropriate large items.

TOYS, PUZZLES, GAMES

  1. Gather ALL the pieces and parts for your toys and bag them up and put them together with the appropriate toy.
  2. Test ALL toys to make sure they are in working order and have batteries.
  3. Be sure to put puzzles and games in their appropriate box. Make sure ALL pieces are there.

VERY IMPORTANT:  Make sure everything is CLEAN (even the soles of shoes - Magic Eraser works wonders), and in LIKE-NEW condition. 

STEP 4: Shopper-Focused Pricing

Selling at JBF lets you be in control of the price of each item. You also decide if it goes half price on the last day of the sale. And if the item doesn't sell, you can either donate the item or pick it up.

Successful sellers at JBF practice "Shopper-focused Pricing". Ask yourself, "What price would make me buy this item and brag about it to a friend?"  Try to resist pricing on sentimental value.

 JBF PRICING GUIDE

Charge MORE for:

• New with Tags
• "Dressy" items
• Items in Original Packaging
• Large Items
• Popular Toys

Charge LESS for:
• T-shirts
• Play Clothes
• Infant Items
• Maternity Clothing

To sell more items we recommend that you let your items reduce during our HALF OFF DAYS.

STEP 5: Tagging Your Items

It helps tremendously to start tagging items as soon as you can, that way you can pace yourself instead of being overwhelmed the day before drop-off.  See this helpful Tagging Timeline Chart.

When you are ready to create your tags, Log into your JBF Profile and click on the TAGGING icon on the top right corner of the page.

Select CREATE TAGS and then grab your first item and start.

Select the Category > Choose the Size > Write a detailed description > Select the Price > Choose if you want it to REDUCE > Choose if you want it to DONATE > Write in the Quantity

Save OFTEN.

STEP 6: Drop off Your Items

Bring your tagged and prepped items to the Nashville Fairgrounds - Expo 3 Center

• You'll be responsible to place all of your items on the sales floor in their designated places.

• Team Members will be on hand to assist you so you'll know where everything goes.

• Plan between 45-60mins to Drop off your items.  Plan extra time if you have children with you

Supplies & Tags

 

You must tag all items using our online tagging and barcoding system.

Please make sure that your 7 digit universal consignor number is correct on every tag. You may find your consignor number on the your JBF Profile or on your confirmation email you received when you registered. MYJBFTAGS features

With our Tagging Site you can:
• Track sold items online instantly
•  Detailed inventory lists (donations report)
•  Print at home, no waiting
•  Records from sale to sale


If you want to donate your unsold items at the end of the sale, choose the donate option. Any items not picked up during consignor pick up times will be donated to our charity partner, Rust Street Ministries.

You set your own price on all items. Price to sell! Generally items sell for 1/3 of the original price, depending on name brand and condition. Better brand names, unique items, or high price items usually bring more. Ask yourself "What would I pay for this item? Please use $.50 price increments only (i.e.; $6.00 or $6.50 rather than $6.99).

If you decide to NOT let your item go for half price, it will print a red star on the tag. This tells the customer that the item will remain Full Price throughout the sale. Please be selective on the items that you star, since items with no stars tend to sell better on the discount days. If you are donating your items at the end of the sale, please do not choose for your item to remain full price.

Print your tags on light colored CARDSTOCK ONLY You can also change your printer to just black and white. If you choose to do this, please color the stars in with red marker.
• WHITE cardstock
• Tagging gun or safety pins
• Hangers (any size)
• Baggies
• Clear packing tape
• Scissors
• Ribbon, String, or zipties
• Access to computer and printer

Mommy Mart

Mommy Mart Graphic (http://bit.ly/JBFMart)

Select:  Household items that other families will use (no knick knacks please).  You may consign storage solutions (baskets, bin, shelving), furniture (no upholstered items), regifting items, craft items, decor (lamps, wall hangings, no antiques), and kitchen items (small appliances, utensils, etc.).  Please be aware, we will be VERY picky about which items are allowed for the Mommy Mart.

Package:  If selling multiple pieces together, be sure that all pieces are secured together.

Price:  Price to sell!  These items are not the primary reason shoppers come to JBF, so set the price very low!

Tag:  Secure the tag to the item to ensure that the tag does not fall off during the sale and so that item is not damaged when the tag is removed after purchase.

Howdy!  I'm Yolanda and I organize the Just Between Friends Sale Event in our GREAT Nashville Music City!

As a mom of 2 children, I get it!  Raising kids is expensive...not to mention they outgrow things SO fast (my kids have even skipped sizes)!  After seeing so much of our money vanishing from traditional shopping, I became a fierce bargain shopper out of necessity!

Consignment sales provided the perfect solution, and thus birthed my love for consignment! That's why I wanted to bring a JBF to Nashville, so you could also experience Just Between Friends!

Locally owned - our events allow communities to sell the items their kids no longer use, and get way MORE for LESS! It's a win-win and why I love JBF...I know you will too!
