Bags and Baby Carriers

Diaper bags, infant carriers, backpacks, lunch boxes and kid's purses are great consignment items.

Please inspect all items carefully to make sure items have not been recalled, stained, damaged or are missing pieces.

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/string or zip tie. If item contains multiple pieces, be sure all pieces are included and list number of items on JBF tag description.

Blankets and Textiles

Be selective when selling blankets, receiving blankets, burp cloths, and towels. New and barely used items sell best. Check carefully for stains.

Package:  We suggest hanging blankets and towels on a hanger. They are easier to see. They may also be placed in a plactic bag, but they sell better when they are hung. If using a large baggie, make sure the bag is taped shut so they items can not fall out or get separated (be sure multiple pieces cannot be separated).

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 item is placed in a plastic bag, attach tag securely with packaging tape to the inside of the bag and tape the bag shut. If blankets are bundled with string or on a hanger, attach tag directly to blanket with a tagging gun or safety pin.

Books, Games, DVD's, Arts and Crafts

Books, book sets, board games, puzzles, video games, video game systems, scrapbook, arts & crafts sets are great items for resale.  In addition to children's books, we accept parenting, homeschooling, pregnancy and child rearing content.

Games and puzzles must have all pieces.  No "adult" content please or "M" video games, please. We are unable to accept VHS tapes. Check DVDs and video games for scrathes and double check to ensure the disk is in the case!

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 cannot be separated or switched out at the sale.

Price:  Prices can range from $.50 to $50 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 clear tape or blue painter's tape that can be removed without damaging the item. Tape tag to the outside cover. Please do not use masking or double sided tape. Hole-punch JBF tag and tie to sets or put sets in a zip lock bag with the JBF tag taped to the outside. Tape bag shut so they don't get separated.

Boutique brands
The Fall Sale is fall & winter clothing only. Check out the seasonal guidelines here.

Quality:  Be picky. Look at your clothing items as if you were going to purchase them. No stained or damaged items will be accepted.  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 more you will sell.

Package & Hang:  Hangers - Please hang clothes so the hanwger hook points to the left (like a question mark).  We are not picky about hangers- use what you can find!!  We will occationally have times when you can pick up supplies/hanger- please watch for our emails.

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/Skirts - 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. Onesies, 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  have a $3 per hanger suggestion at the JBF Western Gloucester County sale. We encourage you to price anything on a hanger for a minumum of $3. You can pair multiplies together, like 2 tshirts or 4 onesies.  Don't waste a hanger on a $1 item.

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 onesies, socks, tights, infant mittens, and accessories. Be sure to also attach multiple pieces together. Then put these items into clear zip-lock bags.

Furniture and Baby Equipment

Exersaucers, swings, high chairs, changing tables, strollers, bath seats, baby walkers, car seats & car seat accessories must be checked for safety recalls, must have all parts, and be in good condition.  Children's furniture including toddler, twin or bunk beds, desks, changing tables, dressers, etc. great.

Package:  If item has multiple pieces use packaging tape, zip-ties, or string to keep items attached together. If wooden furniture has loose parts, use clear plastic wrap to secure item. All furniture and equipment must be assembled during the sale.

Please feel free to contact us!  We are here to help you!!

Michele and I are busy mom's, just like you!  We know how expensive it is to raise children today!

I have 3 children~Mckenzie (13), Sophie (12) and Nash (10). They play every sport- atleast it feels that way! LOL I live in my car! I am a typical "soccer mom".  Sporting equipment gets expensive~ that's why I first started shopping JBF and I was AMAZED at what I found, for a fraction of the price!! Then I figured I might as well sell my stuff and make some extra cash~ My 1st check was over $300, on items I was just going to give away!

Michele has 2 beautiful girls~ Madison (15) and Mackenzie (12).  They dance almost every night of the week!

I told Michele (my bestie) for JBF for years!  When she finally tried it, she was HOOKED!

We have been best friends for over 6 years, our daughters are best friends, our husbands are best friends, and now we are partners! Our sale is a family event and you will see us all there!  We look forward to meeting you at our event(s)!!
