SELLING PRICE MINIMUM

At JBF Austin North & Central, we have a  "$3.00 Minimum Suggestion."

If your single, hanging clothing item is not of a $3.00 value on it's own, please pair it with something that will bring the total for the items to at least this amount. You can pair two onesies together, for example.

REMEMBER: Price to Sell! Generally that means 1/3 of the original retail price. Brand names and designer do well at JBF.

CLOTHING TAGGING TIP

Tag Location MUST be in the upper right of all clothing items for easy shopping.

Attach tag with a safety pin to the upper right pocket area of the shirt or upper right front of pants.

Punch a hole at the top of the tag to make it easier to slide the safety pin through. *If you use a tag gun please insert the gun in a tag/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. Tagging guns can be found at Hobby Lobby and www.storesupply.com.

HANG & SORT

Please use ANY SIZE wire or plastic hangers.

If you are having trouble finding hangers ask co-workers, neighbors and friends for their dry cleaning hangers. Old Navy will often provide hangers if you ask, as well as some dry cleaners you frequent.

Remember to safety pin garments to the top part of the hanger so the garment will not slide.

Please have your clothes sorted by size and gender. This will make drop off easier and faster for you.

FURNITURE

Furniture sells really well. All kinds of children's and juvenile furniture will be accepted.

No couches or dining tables.

To keep our reputation of 'only the best', JBF asks that you be very selective about the quality of your furniture. All furniture must be intact, put together and sturdy.

LOOSE ITEMS

Loose Items like blankets, bibs, cloth diapers, bottles, small toys, bows, socks, etc. must be in clear Ziploc bags with the tag attached to the inside or outside of the bag.

Blankets and Snugis sell better if they are hung over a pant hanger. Be sure to put a safety pin on them so they don't fall off the hanger. Use clear packing tape for securing the bags closed. This prevents 'little' hands from reaching in.

MATERNITY

Must be in excellent condition and not out of date. All Season of maternity clothing will be allowed at our sales. Please do not bring out-dated maternity clothes. They just will not sell- especially in Austin with our fashion savvy moms!

  1. Please secure the tops with safety pins if they have a tendency to fall off the hanger.
  2. Breastfeeding tops are accepted with maternity clothing.
  3. Other Maternity Items: belly bands, breast pumps, pregnancy books, etc. sell very well.

SHOES

Please be aware of our goal....to be the BEST in the consignment business.

  • Shoes with dirt or mud will not be accepted.
  • Must be tied in pairs by shoelaces or put the shoes in a clear baggie.
  • Laces and shoes must be in excellent condition.
  • Attach a tag with a large safety pin to the laces or tape the tag on the bottom of the shoes or the bag.
  • For shoes with no laces, put them together in a Ziploc bag with the tag taped to the outside of the bag. Tape the bag closed with heavy packing tape.

Be PICKY on shoes!

TOYS

All toys must be in working order, BATTERIES INCLUDED or they will not be accepted.

  • Make sure to clean them before drop off.
  • Small parts should be bagged and taped to the main part very securely. Use HEAVY packing tape. If parts get separated, it will not sell.
  • Games and puzzles should have all pieces and be tied or taped closed.
  • Several small items can be grouped together in Ziploc bags (books, rattles, grab bags for small toys).
  • We will ONLY accept stuffed animals that are LIKE NEW! No other stuffed animals will be accepted.
  • Again, you MUST secure Ziploc bags with packing tape so that pieces do not get lost!

Large toys and outdoor play equipment must be clean, free of dirt and or water.

  • Mr. Clean Magic Erasers work well on these items.
  • Must include all pieces.
  • Name brands sell great at JBF!

All items are inspected for QUALITY at JBF so our shoppers can expect only the best!

If your items don't pass inspection, they will be returned to you. Here are some ways to make sure your items will pass inspection. 

  1. Inspect for stains under bright light. Sometimes milk stains are hard to see!
  2. Make sure to test your batteries. We only accept items with working batteries!
  3. Clean your shoes, soles included. We don't want to put dirty shoes on our kiddos' feet, so clean those shoes before inspection!

Shoppers are picky. After all, we're shopping for our babies! You'll see a lot higher sales and earn more money when you take the time to prep your items!

CHECK FOR SAFETY

This is what differentiates us most from other resalers. In fact, JBF corporate employs a Certified Recall Specialist to keep our events up to date on recalls.

Locally, each item is inspected for SAFETY so our shoppers can shop resale without worry!

Here's how you can help us prep:

  1. Check the CPSC recall list on your items.
  2. Make sure there are no pull strings on any item around the neckline!
  3. Fill out our carseat and crib waivers and follow their instructions.
