Clothing

VIDEOS: How to Hang Clothes | How to Tag - Infant Items | How to Tag - Single-Piece Clothing Items | How to Tag - Multi-Piece Clothing Items

 

Package & Hang:

Hangers - Please hang clothes so the hanger hook points to the left (like a question mark). Hang size 0-5 clothing on child-size hangers and sizes 6-juniors 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 and HEB sell child-size plastic tube hangers at a great price, you may also purchase wire hangers from us directly at $0.10 a hanger.

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). Use safety pins to attach clothing sets securely Be careful to not put holes in the clothing.  You can also hang items separately and zip tie hangers securely together.  Make sure the back item is facing out so both pieces of clothing can be easily viewed.

Pants/Shorts - Pant-clip hangers are great but if you use a standard hanger, simply use safety pins to attach pants to the top part of the hanger so the garment will not slide.  Be careful to not put holes in the clothing.

Accessories: Socks, tights, hats and mittens, or other accessories can be in a clear zip-lock bag (you may group multiple items in one bag as long as they can all be seen). Please be sure to label your tag well.

 

Price: 50-75% off original price

Hanging Clothing -  Put outfits/sets together to price for at least $3.  Move price up or down depending on brand, quality and wear and tear of item.  If it has new tags and never been worn/used, say that on your tag and bump price up some.

Non-hanging Clothing/Accessories - Put sets together to price for at least $3, but okay to price for less (i.e., 6 pair of socks for $2).

 

Tag:

Clothing on Hangers - Attach tag with a tagging gun or safety pins. Insert the gun in a label or inside seam (for example the underarm seam) NOT through part of the clothing (to avoid making a hole or tear in the clothing).  As you look at the clothing the tag will be on the right hand side.  Make sure the tag is properly secured.

Non-Hanging Clothing - Please use tagging gun or safety pins to attach tags to socks, tights, infant mittens, and accessories. Be sure to also attach multiple pieces together.  For items in clear zip-lock bags, tape tag securely on bag in a visible place. Please do not tape bags closed - shoppers want to feel and inspect items before purchasing.

 

Note: We sell children's clothing (newborn - junior sizes)  and maternity sizes (limit 10 maternity clothing items per consignor).  Please hang onesies so they can be seen.  For juniors items please be specific when selecting the size. WE DO NOT ACCEPT WOMEN'S or MEN'S CLOTHING.

Be picky. Look at your clothing items as if you were going to purchase them. No stained or damaged items will be accepted.  We want you to make the most money you can and we want shoppers to be happy with what they’re buying.  We have high standards so it’s a win-win for everyone!

 

Freshly clean your clothing items.

● Replace missing buttons.
● Sew loose hems and seams.
● Clip loose threads.
● Button all buttons, snap all snaps, zip all zippers before you arrive at drop off. This ensures there are no defects in the clothing.

The newer the item looks and the better it smells, the better it sells.  We will not accept items that smell like smoke.

Shoes

VIDEO: How to Tag - Shoes

 

Package: 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.

 

Price: 50-75% off original price.

 

Tag: 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 and tape the bag shut with clear packing tape.

 

Note: Make sure 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).

Toys

VIDEO: How to Tag - Toys

 

Package:  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.

 

Price:  50% - 90% off retail.

 

Tag:  Attach JBF tag directly to item with clear packaging tape or hole-punch JBF tag and tie it to item.

 

Note: 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).

Stuffed animals: We are now limiting these to NEW only.  They must be free from smoke, pet hair or other allergens.

Books, Games, DVDs, Arts + Crafts

VIDEOS: How to Tag - Books DVDs and Electronics | How to Tag - Books

 

Package:  Be sure parts/games to video game systems (such as Vtech) cannot be separated or switched out at the sale. Make sure DVDs still work and are in the case.  For book sets, tie together with ribbon/string. For puzzles, use clear cling wrap (saran wrap).

 

Price:  75%-90% off retail; price to sell, especially for books and DVDs as there are always lots to choose from at the sale.

 

Tag:  When tagging books, please attach your tag to the book with painter’s tape that can be removed without damaging the item. Tape tag to the outside cover of  books in an area that will not easily tear when removing the tag. Please do not use masking or double sided tape.

 

Note: Books, book sets, board games, puzzles, video games, video game systems, scrapbook, arts and 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.

Infant Items

VIDEO: How to Tag - Infant Items

 

Package:  If item has multiple pieces use packaging tape, tagging gun, safety pins or clear self-seal bags to keep items attached together and clearly visible to shoppers. Batteries must be included, if applicable.

 

Price:  50% - 75% off retail. Items in great condition tend to sell very well.

 

Tag:  Attach JBF tag directly to item or clear self-seal bag with clear packaging tape or hole-punch JBF tag and tie it to item.

 

Note: Nursing covers & pillows, feeding items, monitors, safety items, diapering & toileting items, rattles, and more.  Please check for safety recalls on all items that you consign.  We no longer accept breast pumps, because they can now be obtained for free via services.  We do not sell pump accessories UNLESS brand new in the package and not expired/outdated.  This is a safety issue.

Bags + Baby Carriers

VIDEOS: How to Tag - Infant Items

 

Package:  Zip-tie items to an adult-size hanger securely.

 

Price:  50% - 75% off retail. Items in great condition tend to sell very well.  (No knock-offs)

 

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

 

Note: 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.

Bedding, Blankets + Textiles

VIDEO: How to Tag - Bedding

 

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:  75% - 90% off retail. Price to sell! Shoppers are less likely to purchase these items used, so prices have to be low; and items in pristine condition.

 

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.  Tags must still be clearly visible.

 

Note: We will only take 1 bedding item per consignor (it may be a single set).  We will not accept crib bumpers of any kind even if part of a set.  Be very selective when selling bedding, blankets, burp cloths, and towels. Only items for children will be accepted. 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.

Furniture + Equipment

VIDEOS: How to Tag Large Items with Multiple Pieces | How to Tag - Multi-piece Large Items

 

Package:  If item has multiple pieces, use packaging tape, zip-ties, or string to keep items attached together. If wooden furniture has loose parts, use clear plastic wrap to secure item, and ziploc baggies for small pieces or hardware. All furniture and equipment must be assembled during the sale. Batteries must be included, if applicable, so that item can be seen working at the sale

 

Price:  50% - 75% off retail. Items in great condition tend to sell very well.

 

Tag:  Attach JBF tag directly to item with clear packaging tape or hole-punch JBF tag and tie it to item.

 

Note: Exer-saucers, swings, high chairs, changing tables, strollers, bath seats, etc must be checked for safety recalls, must have all parts, be clean and in good condition.

Children's furniture like beds (toddler, twin), desks, side tables, dressers, etc. sell well.

Household furniture--we will accept all regular furniture items that are smok and pet free and in excellent condition.  If you have any questions please contact us.  Appliances will not be accepted.

Mommy Mart

VIDEOS:

 

Package:  If selling multiple pieces together, be sure that all pieces are secured together, and smaller items are in self-seal bags.

 

Price:  70%-90% off retail.  These items are not the primary reason shoppers come to JBF, so price low!

 

Tag:  Secure the tag to the item to ensure that the tag does not fall off during the sale and so that item is not damaged when the tag is removed after purchase.

 

Note: Household items that other families will use (no knick-knacks please).  You may consign storage solutions (baskets, bin, shelving), nursery or kids room furniture, decor (lamps, wall hangings, no antiques), and kitchen items for babies and toddlers (baby food makers, utensils, etc.).
