Have you heard of Just Between Friends? I’m SOOOOO Excited to tell you about it!
We all know too well that our kids are constantly outgrowing their clothes and toys. So what the heck do we do with all of their old stuff? And how on earth can we keep getting them new nice clothes without breaking the budget? That’s where Just Between Friends comes in. They host a HUGE bi-annual consignment event (usually Fall & Spring). They have these sales all over the US! And, one is coming to the Houston area (specifically-Katy) THIS MONTH! April 26-28, to be exact!
So how does it work? Well, let me tell ya!
You will be in SHOCK over how many items are selling here. You can find QUALITY clothes, toys, shoes, maternity clothes, books, and so much more. They do not accept items that aren’t in excellent condition. Items are typically priced at 50%-90% off of retail price! I’m so excited to find some great clothes for my kiddos!
It’s not too late to sign up to be a consigner at the Katy JBF sale! Their website has a great tool to help you make and print tags for all of your items. You drop off your items before the event, and they sell them for you! You earn 60%-70% on your items that sell (this is much higher than average consignment stores). Consigners make an average of $350 during the sale. I could use some extra cash! For your items that don’t sell- you can either pick them up after the event, or you can choose to donate them to a local charity in need of children’s items. You get paid about 15 days after the event closes .
The event is run by volunteers. You can volunteer, and earn a higher percentage on your items that sell. Volunteering isn’t required, but it is a nice way to meet other parents and to get involved in the community. Volunteers help to check out customers, pick up items, organize clothes, the list goes on and on.
If you don’t live in the Houston area, you can search for local JBF events near you, using this link. 🙂 Check them out. You won’t regret it!
