Please plan to be finished dropping off by 7:00pm.  An average consignor can drop off in about 20 minutes.  If you have a high volume of items (200+) please plan to arrive more than 90 minutes before the end of drop off.

You may pick up your unsold items or have a friend or family member pick up on your behalf.  You may also have us donate them to a charity partner on your behalf and provide you with a tax receipt.

Bags & Baby Carriers

Diaper bags, infant carriers, backpacks, and purses are great consignment items. Please inspect all items carefully to make sure items have not been recalled, stained, damaged or are missing pieces. 


Package:  Please zip-tie items to an adult-size hanger. If you would like to place high-priced items (over $25) in our High Value Area near Checkout, please see a volunteer at Drop Off for assistance.
Price:  Price 50% - 75% off retail. Items in great condition tend to sell very well.


Tag:  Hole-punch JBF tag and attach it to item with ribbon or string. If item contains multiple pieces, be sure all pieces are included and list number of items on JBF tag description. (link to tagging video)

Bedding, Blankets & Textiles

Bedding sizes accepted are bassinet through twin only. 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.


Package:  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.  Video games will be placed near checkout to prevent theft.


Price:  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. If you would like a high-priced item placed in the High Value Area near Checkout, please see a volunteer during Drop Off.

Tag:  When tagging books, please attach your tag to the book with clear 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 or double sided tape. Hole-punch JBF tag and tie to sets.

Clothing

We sell children's clothing Newborn through Juniors as well as Maternity/Nursing.

Be picky!  Please bring ONLY THE VERY BEST.  Items must be very clean and free of any staining or damage.   Damaged or stained items will not be accepted at drop off.  Please keep items IN SEASON and in style.  Save yourself time/effort by not tagging things that won’t sell well. 

  
Please be choosy on Juniors items and stick to more popular Juniors brands: Abercrombie, Hollister, Roxy, American Eagle, Nike, Volcom, Burton, etc.
Please also be extra choosy on maternity clothing.  Be sure the style is current and they’re in great shape.

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.  That means more money for you!


Package & Hang:  Hangers - 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 sell child-size plastic tube hangers at a great price. 


Clothing Sets - Sets tend to sell better (under size 5) 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 - Pant-clip 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 around.


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 what they’re buying.  Please do not tape these bags closed because buyers will want to inspect what they’re buying.


Price:  Hanging Clothing - Put outfits/set together to price for at least $3.00; Start at $3 for basic, generic brand 0-24mo outfit. Add $1 each for larger size, name brand, formal, and heavy/winter.  For very special high-end or boutique brands, price between 30%-50% of the retail price depending on age and condition.  


Tag:  Clothing on Hangers - Attach tag with a tagging gun or safety pin to the upper right front of clothing. 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.  View our helpful tagging videos if you'd like to see how it's done.

I get it!  Raising kids is expensive!  JBF is here to make it affordable for Utah families.  I love being able to get everything I need for my kids age 10, 7 and 5 each season without breaking the bank.  They always look forward to sale time!  Dad does too, because our kids look like a million bucks on a budget.
