Drop Off/ Pick Up

DROP OFF
Thursday, 04/04/2019: 130pm-8:30pm

You may drop off your items anytime during this time frame.  No appointment necessary.

What To Expect at Drop Off:
1. Bring in ONE tagged item, your signed Consignor Agreement, Car Seat Checklist and Crib Waiver (if applicable) to start your check in process.

2.  A friendly JBF Team Member will greet you and give you further instructions.

3.  Gather your items from your car.  We have rolling racks available on a first come, first serve basis.  It is highly recommended if you have a wagon to bring that to help put your items out.

4.  If required, go to Inspection Station.  This is an education station where we will review your items for any missed stains, hangers are the correct size and tag placement is correct.  We would rather educate our consignors if there is something wrong so that you can fix it immediately instead of it being pulled from the sales floor and not having a chance to sell.

5.  After inspection, you will place all items on the sales floor, so please plan to allow 30 minutes to an hour for this process depending on how many items you are selling.  It is highly recommended that clothing is sorted by gender and size and like toys grouped together.

6.  Selling any large bulky items that don’t fit easily in our Ikea shopping bags?  If so, your item will require our Yellow Claim Tickets.  You will receive a barcode label and your Yellow Claim Ticket.  Safely secure to your item and place near like items on the sales floor.

PICK UP
Sunday 04/07/19, 7pm- 8pm

All items that have not been picked up are donated at 8:01pm.

What To Expect at Pick Up:
We recommend bringing your own bin or bags to transport any unsold items home.  You are able to send someone else to pick up your items, just make sure during drop off you write the name of the person picking up on your waiver.  They will be asked to show ID before they will be allowed to leave with your items.


1.  All items will be sorted by consignor #.  Make sure you know your consignor # prior to pick up.  Please remember to bring your ID.  You will need to show this to retrieve your items.

2. Clothing will be on the racks and your table items will be directly underneath the clothing.

3. Gather your items and pick up your consignor waiver that will be taped on the floor.

4. Upon leaving, be sure to check the missing tags items.  These are items that had their tags fall off during the event.

As the newest Just Between Friends kids consignment event, we couldn't be more excited to start bringing such great deals to the Antioch/Concord area. I am the mother of 2 toddlers, so I know hard it can be to keep up with all the needs of my growing children. Just Between Friends events are a great way to sell the items your children no longer need, while purchasing from other parents the things your children need now. It's a Win, Win!
