March is the kick off for all of the big children’s consignment sales happening this spring and such a great time to stock up on spring and summer clothes. It’s also a fantastic opportunity to make some extra cash selling items that your children have outgrown while you’re doing your spring cleaning. The Just Between Friends sales are very popular, high-quality children’s consignment sales found around the country. We are fortunate to have a number of Just Between Friends (JBF) sales located here in the Northwest, with sale dates throughout the next couple of months. The first Just Between Friends sale starts in Issaquah this weekend and they run all the way through early May around Washington, Oregon and Idaho (as well as other locations around the country – you can find a location near you on their website)
I’ve been to several Just Between Friends sales and I love the amount of selection you will find at the sales. You’ll find everything from gently used children and maternity clothing items, baby gear and equipment (strollers, pack n plays, high chairs, etc), toys, books, shoes & coats and much more. And it’s all under one roof, the best part so you don’t have to go to multiple stores or multiple garage sales looking at pre-used items.
If you want to be a consignor to make some cash for your children’s clothes, shoes, baby equipment and more – then make sure to check out the Just Between Friends website for the sale near you as soon as possible to get signed up. Consignors can earn up to 70% off and if you volunteer to help at the sale, you could earn back even more.
We’ve got all the details below about each of the Just Between Friends sales here in the Northwest. Make sure to check out the websites for the full details as there are special start times for first time parents, military parents, foster parents & more; however, you will have to pre-register as they typically only have a certain number of spots for people to come during the earlier start times.
