Clothing: Fall/Winter Items

We accept fall & winter children's clothing for this sale: Boys Newborn through size 18, Girls Newborn through Juniors, as well as all season maternity sizes. Be picky! Look at your clothing items as if you were going to purchase them. Any items that look like "mom's" clothes will be rejected at inspection. No stained or damaged items will be accepted.  No items with any type of smell: smoke, cooking odors, body odors, etc.  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.
Packaging & Hanging:  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, and Dollar General 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 - Pants 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.
PricingHanging Clothing - Put outfits/set together; they sell best. Start at $3 for basic, generic brand 0-24mo outfit. Add $1 each for larger size, name brand, formal, and heavy/winter. We DO NOT have a $3 minimum, this is just suggested pricing.
Non-hanging Clothing - Put multiple items together to price for at least $3.00, but okay to price for less (i.e., 6 pair of socks for $1.50).
Tagging:  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.

Diaper bags, infant carriers, and backpacks are great consignment items. Please inspect all items carefully to make sure items have not been recalled (link below), stained, damaged or are missing pieces.  We no longer accept breast pumps; however, pump accessories are okay to sell.
Packaging:  Please zip-tie items to an adult-size hanger so they can be displayed on the racks.
Pricing:  Price 50% - 75% off retail. Items in great condition tend to sell very well.
Tagging:  Hole-punch your JBF tag and attach it to item with ribbon, string, or a zip-tie. If item contains multiple pieces, be sure all pieces are included and list number of items on JBF tag description.

Toys

Ride-on toys, block sets, dolls, remote control cars, outdoor toys, learning toys, and more. All toys must be checked for safety recalls before consigning.  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).
Packaging:  Keeping tags and multiple items attached is essential for your items to sell. Bag all small parts belonging to toys/equipment in self-seal bags and tape the bag shut with clear packing tape. Fasten the bag securely to the item with ribbon, tape, or zip ties. Items must include ALL working parts.
Pricing:  Price 50% - 90% off retail.
Tagging:  Attach JBF tag directly to the item with clear packaging tape or hole-punch JBF tag and tie it to item.

Shoes

Make sure that shoes are clean, clean, clean! We will be VERY selective with shoes during Consignor Drop Off & Inspection. Shoes must be current season (Fall = October thru March; Spring = April thru October).
Packaging: 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).
Pricing: Shoes must be in good condition and should start at $3.00 for infant/toddler; Add $1 each for larger size, name brand, or boots.
Tagging: 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, or tape to the outside of the bag.

Bedding & Blankets

Bedding sizes accepted are bassinet through twin only. Padded crib bumpers are not accepted (mesh bumpers are accepted). 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.

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, 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. Check for scratches on video games, and be sure all games are in their respective cases.
Packaging:  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.
Pricing:  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. When tagging books, please attach your tag to the book with blue painters 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, double sided, or clear packing tape. Hole-punch JBF tag and tie to sets.
