Just Between Friends Consignment Sale

Just Between Friends Consignment Sale
September 6th -9th


Do you have baby/children’s clothes, toys, and furniture that have been outgrown? Do you want to get rid of them and earn extra cash? If so, Just Between Friends is right for you.

Anyone can consign during this semi-annual event. Just register online, tag your items before the day of the sale using their on-line tagging system, and then drop them off at the sale. JBF does the rest.
  •  Consignors make 60% of their sales (consignors who also volunteer make 70%).
  • You set your own price and decide if your item is discounted during half price days
  • Consignors will receive 2  presale passes to shop before the public.
  • The fee to consign is only $11.
  • Consignors are required to have a minimum of  $100 worth of items.
  • With the on-line bar-coding system (www.myjbftags.com), it is easy to enter your tags and print them off.
  •  You will then be able to track your sales during the event
  • They accept seasonally appropriate clothing items during the sales as well as toys, books, and furniture.
If you don’t want to consign, you can shop for great deals on quality items.

  • Wear comfortable shoes so you can get the good deals quickly.

  • We prefer Cash but also accept Visa, MasterCard, and Discover. 
  • Children are welcome during the public shopping hours however it gets very busy. If possible, we recommend getting a babysitter so you can enjoy your shopping experience.
  • We have a holding area and extra-large shopping bags for your convenience.
  • We are unable to allow children to play with the toys at the sale. Items are the property of consignors and if they are broken or separated they cannot be sold.

I participated in many of Just Between Friends sales and it really is a convenient way to de-clutter your house. I sold a ton of my girl’s clothes and even two strollers. What I really loved was that you could check exactly what was sold through the JBF website.

Check out this great sale September 6th - 9th at Brandywine Youth Club, 41 Thornton Road - Glen Mills, PA 19342
