There is a $1 Fee for each replacement battery JBF provides. Additionally, if you print duplicate tags you will NOT be paid when duplicate tags sell. Each tag must have its own unique barcode. Please inspect all items for quality and ensure they are in working order to avoid extra fees.

NO LARGE BAGS:
We will no longer allow shoppers to bring in their own large bags. This is for the safety of everyone shopping and to help secure our consignors items better. We have IKEA bags we will loan you at the door as well as shopping carts. In case we run out, it is always a good idea to bring your own wagon, laundry basket, or bin to shop with - just please do not bring any large bags.

INSPECTION:
Inspection is done AFTER drop-off, unless you had more than 10 items pulled at the last sale, in which case you will need to have your items quickly inspected before going to the sale floor.

Helpful Tip: Tell EVERYONE about the sale!! Consignors need 10 shoppers (people buying not just looking) for the best results on sold items. Help spread the word...your check depends on it!!

Q. Who does the pricing?
A. You set your own price and you get to decide if it is discounted on our half-price day. We suggest you price your items 1/3 of what they would sell for retail.

Q. How long should I give myself to drop off my items?
A. We have self check-in and it typically takes about 1 hour to drop off your items. Your items will be inspected AFTER you place them in the designated areas around the sales floor. It is helpful to bring a wagon or other large container to drop off your items.

A. Your check will be Emailed to you within 1 week of the end of the sale.

Q. Will I know what items have sold?
A. The online tagging system is quick and easy and will give you a close idea of what has sold, when and for how much. Tags that do not scan properly will not show up in the system as sold, but they will be reflected on your check. Also, the system is set to show 60%, so your check will be 70% or higher if you are a JBF BFF or Team Member. Tags will be uploaded automatically during the sale.

Q. Where do I find safety pins and child sized hangers?
A. All tagging supplies can be found at HEB on an endcap near the school supplies typically 1 to 2 months before a sale event.  Just look for the JBF Sign. The only item they don't carry is hangers. ANY SIZE hangers are fine to use, you can find them at most dry cleaners for FREE or in your closet.

Kids are expensive and they grow fast, so we coordinate a community event where families can come together to sell the things their kids are no longer using and buy what they need at 50-90% off retail. Why not let other families purchase these items at greatly reduced prices and earn cash from these investments? Additionally, families have the option to donate items that don't sell to our amazing charity partner! JBF is a win-win for everyone!
