Clean all toys and baby equipment thoroughly. Please test to make sure that toys and equipment are working properly. Battery operated toys must include working batteries (these can be purchased inexpensively at local discount stores).

Fasten the bag securely to the item with ribbon, tape, or zip ties. Items must include ALL working parts. Price: Price 50% - 90% off retail.

Tag: Attach JBF tag directly to item with clear packaging tape or hole-punch JBF tag and tie it to item.

STUFFED ANIMALS:  we do not accept non animated or non-character stuffed animals.  If your Elmo dances or is just super cute, bring him. If your stuffed dolphin is just super cute, we can't accept him.

Items over $30

NEW - Items over $30 will be scanned in and kept off the sales floor until presales. These items will be placed on the floor by JBF staff. JBF Denver will not be responsible for items not left at the front with a team lead. 

Shoes

Make sure that shoes are clean, clean, clean! We will be VERY selective with shoes during Inspection. Shoes must be current season (Fall = October thru March; Spring = April thru October).

Package: Fasten shoes together with zip ties. For infant shoes or 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).

Price: Shoes must be in good condition and should start at $3.00 for infant/toddler; Add $1 each for larger size, name brand, or heavy/winter.

Tag: Punch a hole in the top of your tag and attach the tag to the shoes with the ribbon, string, or zip tie. For infant shoes in a clear zip-lock bag, put the tag inside the bag and tape the bag shut with clear packing tape.

Books, games, dvd's & arts and crafts

VHS MOVIES:  VHS movies are not accepted at JBF Denver.  We will accept all children's DVD options.  We do not accept non-children's movies. No R rated movies. 

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, pregnancy and child rearing books. Games and puzzles must have all pieces. (No "adult" content please.) Check items to ensure they are in great condition.

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. 

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 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.

Bags & baby carriers

Diaper bags, infant carriers, backpacks, and purses are great consignment items. Please inspect all items carefully to make sure items have not been recalled (link), 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 or string. If item contains multiple pieces, be sure all pieces are included and list number of items on JBF tag description.

 

Bedding

BEDDING:  we will only accept Bedding with a JBF price of $75 or less.  This is the price point at which bedding best sells. Bedding must have the original tag attached (per CO law) or we are unable to sell it. Please leave items open for inspection or have tag showing. Bumpers are not allowed to be sold at any JBF sale.

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).

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.

Furniture & equipment

LARGE ITEM TAGS:  Please don't attach your tag to large items such as furniture, baby equipment and strollers before you come to drop off.  We will attach it for you to our large JBF tag  at drop off.

Exersaucers, swings, high chairs, changing tables, cribs (Manufactured AFTER June 28, 2011; please bring Crib Waiver (for all cribs), 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 - beds (toddler, twin), desks, side tables, dressers, etc. 

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. Batteries must be included, if applicable. Please bring a Car Seat Checklist for all car seats, booster seats, and car seat base or infant carrier.

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

Tag: Attach JBF tag directly to item with clear packaging tape or hole-punch JBF tag and tie it to item.

Infant to Size 16 clothing

Clothing: We sell children's clothing Newborn through size 20 (Abercrombie, Hollister, Roxy, American Eagle, Nike, Volcom, Burton, Aeropostale preferred for young adult and juniors) as well as maternity sizes. Our Fall Sale is fall & winter clothing only (what your child would wear between October- March).

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 0-6 clothing on child-size hangers and sizes 7-20 and maternity clothing on adult-size hangers. Clothing that falls off the hanger onto the floor does not sell well. Old Navy 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. 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. 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 - Put outfits/set together to price for at least $3.00; Start at $3 for basic, generic brand 0-24mo outfit. Add $1 each for larger size, name brand, formal, and heavy/winter. Non-hanging Clothing - Put sets together to price for at least $3.00, but okay to price for less (i.e., 6 pair of socks for $1.50).

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. Please do not tape bags closed - shoppers want to feel and inspect items before purchasing.

Maternity

MATERNITY LIMITS:  each consignor may bring up to 15 maternity items.  Items are limited to the following brands:   Pea in the Pod, Mimi, Old navy, Gap, Motherhood, Japanese Weekend and other boutique brands.  We are unable to accept store brands such as Baby n Me, In Due Time, or New Additions.

Power consignors

Are you planning on consigning over 1,000 items at the Denver JBF event? If the answer is YES, then this pertains to YOU! If the answer is NO, then please disregard.

We wanted to remind you of a few things and let you know of some new changes.

1. If you BRING over 1,000 items to the event, you OR 1 person in your place is required to do breakdown from 200p-900p on Sunday, September 23 (no matter how many items you have sold). Sign up for the breakdown shift. It is listed as a High Volume shift. You will be able to start loading your items at 900p but will not be able to take anything that is not sorted yet.

*If you would like you can arrive at 130p to start gathering clothing items from the floor before your shift. Please check in with Dawn or Bobbie Jo upon arrival.

2. If you have over 1,000 unsold items LEFT on the floor, the chart below will explain how many TOTAL people are required at breakdown on Sunday, Sept 23 from 200p-900p.

# of items left            Required Breakdown volunteers
1,000 or less*              Total of 1 person required
1,001 to 2,000             Total of 2 people required
2,001 to 3,000             Total of 3 people required
3,001 to 4,000             Total of 4 people required
4,001 to 5,000             Total of 5 people required


*If you bring over 1,000 items you are required to work breakdown even if your final count drops below 1,000.

3. If you are unable to work breakdown, that's okay. Just bring less than 1,000 items.

NOTE - We will be asking you at drop off how many items you are actually dropping off, so please have a count ready.

VIP Tagging

Don't have time to tag your own items but still want to make money?!

Fill out this doc for all the details.

Our goal at JBF Denver has always been to help you earn the biggest return on your children's items.  The biggest return is earned by prepping and tagging your own items.  The VIP service is for families who are unable to do this themselves and are willing to give 25% of their earnings to the person that tags for them.

Just Between Friends of Denver offers its consignors VIP tagging services for moms that want to earn money for their items, but do not have the time to tag them and prep their items. VIP Clients still earn the valuble presale pass to shop before the public with all consignors and make 45% of their sales, (55% if you volunteer).

Since the VIP Tagging team is providing the tagging supplies (zip ties, bags, hangers, safety pins, card stock, ink cartridges, etc), VIP Clients pay a $20 consignor fee. The $20 fee is for the first 150 items and will increase by $5 for each additional 100 items.

THE PROCESS: There is a limit of two drops per sale to your tagger, so please be sure that you have gathered all items that you would like to sell. See below for VIP item limitations.

The VIP Tagger will then transport your items to the sale. You will receive your presale pass and be able to shop before the public for the best deals! If you would like to volunteer, you can earn a volunteer presale pass and you will be eligible for the additional 10%. Three weeks after the sale, your check is emailed.

VIP Clients item limitations and requirements:

  • Please sort through your items to ensure no stained, ripped or missing buttons for the clothing and that the toys and equipment are in good working condition.
  • All toys that require batteries must possess working batteries before being dropped off to a tagger.
  • All items must be clean. Please sort clothing items by sex and by size and make sure it is the proper season.
  • Clothing may be delivered in large bags, boxes or plastic tubs. Containers will not be returned.  


Sorry but VIP taggers cannot accept car seats.
