Bags & Baby Carriers

Diaper bags, infant carriers, backpacks, lunch boxes and kid's purses are great consignment items. We are unable to accept women's handbags including Vera Bradley unless it is a diaper bag.

Please inspect all items carefully to make sure items have not been recalled, stained, damaged or are missing pieces. We no longer accept breast pumps; however, pump accessories are okay to sell.

Package: Please zip-tie items to an adult-size hanger.

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

Tag: Hole-punch JBF tag and attach it to item with ribbon or string. If item contains multiple pieces, be sure all pieces are included and list number of items on JBF tag description.

Bedding, Blankets & Textiles

NO BUMPERS WILL BE ACCEPTED! PLEASE DON'T PACKAGE OR TAG!

Gather: Bedding sizes accepted are bassinet through twin only. Please be selective when selling bedding, blankets, receiving blankets, burp cloths, and towels. New and barely used items sell best. Check carefully for stains; shoppers get very disappointed if they find a stain in a bundled blanket once they get home.

Package: Put bedding/crib/bedroom sets together in original packaging or in giant clear plastic bags. Arrange bedding sets inside bag so that shoppers can see all of the items as well as the design/pattern. Secure the bag so that items do not get separated. Bundle blankets, cloths, and towels with ribbon or string like a package (be sure multiple pieces cannot be separated).  Also, you can hang the items over a large adult hanger with safety pins to secure the garments together.

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: If bedding is in a plastic bag, attach tag securely with packaging tape to the inside of the bag and tape the bag shut (bedding set prices vary widely and securing tags inside bags prevents tag switching). If bedding/blankets are bundled with string, attach tag directly to blanket and tuck it under the ribbon/string so that it does not easily get pulled off when shifting around during the sale.

Books, Games, DVDs, Arts & Crafts

Books, book sets, board games, puzzles, video games, video game systems, scrapbook, arts & crafts sets are great items for resale.  Please only bring kids’, parenting, homeschooling, and child rearing books.  Games and puzzles must have all pieces.  (No "adult" content please or "M" video games.)  We are unable to accept VHS tapes. Check items to ensure they are in great condition - please, no scratches or missing DVDs.

Package: Use clear, self-seal bags or clear cling wrap (saran wrap) to hold multiple items together; Tie sets of books together with ribbon/string. Be sure that parts/games to video game systems (such as Vtech) cannot be separated or switched out at the sale. Please use painters tape to attach items

Price: Prices can range from $.50 to $5.00 in this category, depending on the item. Price to sell especially for books & DVDs as there are always lots to choose from at the sale.

Tag: When tagging books, please attach your tag to the book with blue painter's tape that can be removed without damaging the item. Tape tag to the outside cover of glossy books and to the inside cover of books that will easily tear when removing the tag. Please do not use masking or double sided tape. Hole-punch JBF tag and tie to sets.

Clothing

We sell children's clothing Newborn through size 18 for boys and Juniors for girls (limit 20 girl's junior size 0-13) Brand names such as: Abercrombie, Hollister, Roxy, American Eagle, Nike, Under Armour, and Lily Pulitzer preferred) as well as maternity sizes (limit 10 maternity clothing items per consignor).

We are a seasonal sale, meaning your clothes and items can be things from upcoming season only. Please be certain you bring only gently used, current styles, and no stains or holes. Thank you.


Quality: Be picky. Look at your clothing items as if you were going to purchase them. No stained or damaged items will be accepted.  Any items that look like "mom's" clothes will be rejected at inspection. Please freshly clean your clothing items. Replace missing buttons, sew loose hems and seams, and clip loose threads. Please button all buttons, snap all snaps, zip all zippers before you arrive at drop off. This will ensure that there are no defects in the clothing. The newer the item looks (and the better it smells), the better it will sell.


Package & Hang: Hangers - Please hang clothes so the hanger hook points to the left (like a question mark).  Hang size 0-5 clothing on child-size hangers and sizes 6-20 and maternity clothing on adult-size hangers. Clothing that falls off the hanger onto the floor does not sell well. Old Navy, Carter's,Oshkosh,and many outlet stores are great places to get free hangers (they throw away hangers daily!) and WalMart & Target sell child-size plastic tube hangers at a great price.

Clothing Sets: Sets tend to sell better (under size 6) so match things up if you can. All garments should be hung with the hanger hook pointing left (hanger should resemble a question mark when looking at the front of item). Safety pin or use a tagging gun to attach clothing sets securely with bottom garment hung on the backside of the shirt, so both pieces can be viewed without separating them.  Pants/Shorts - Pant-clip hangers are great but if you use a standard hanger, simply use your tagging gun to attach pants to the top part of the hanger so the garment will not slide. , socks, tights, hats and infant mittens need to be in a clear zip-lock bag (you may group multiple items in one bag). Please be sure to label your tag well so that customers know if the items are short-sleeve onesies or long-sleeve onesies.


Price: Hanging Clothing - The most successful JBF Consignors practice “Shopper-Focused Pricing.” You’re a smart bargain shopper - simply ask, “What price would make me buy this item without hesitation...and brag about it later to a friend?”
We DO NOT have a $3 rule at the JBF Germantown/Port Washington sale. We encourage you to price your items competitively and use this guide as a resource.


Tag: Clothing on Hangers - Attach tag with a tagging gun or safety pin to the label of shirt or upper right front of pants. Insert the gun in a label or inside seam NOT through part of the clothing (to avoid making a hole or tear in the clothing). Also, pull on the tag to make sure it is properly secured and will not come off easily. Please make sure consignor tags are pulled out of the clothing so they are easily visible to the customers.  Non-Hanging Clothing - Please use tagging gun or safety pins to attach tags to socks, tights, infant mittens, and accessories. Be sure to also attach multiple pieces together. Then put these items into clear zip-lock bags. Onesies need to be attached to a hanger with or without saftey pins.

Shoes

We are only taking shoes sizes up to size 8 girls and boys. We do NOT except womens or mens shoes!!!!  Make sure that shoes are clean, clean, clean! We will be VERY selective with shoes during Consignor Drop Off & Inspection.

Package: Fasten shoes together with zip ties. For infant shoes (sizes 0-2) small shoes without laces, you may put the shoes in a clear zip-lock bag. We prefer no shoe boxes. However, if shoes are in the box, please remove the lid, secure it to the bottom of the box, and secure the shoes to the box (closed boxes do not sell well).

JBF just makes sense! As parents invest so much money in the items our children need and many of these items are in great shape long after our children grow out of the clothes, grow tired of the toys, and grow beyond the equipment and furniture. Why not let other families purchase these items at greatly reduced costs and earn cash from these investments? Plus, JBF is a fun way to meet other moms in the area! It's a win-win situation for everyone!! SHOP. SELL. SAVE. SMART!!!
