Where To Start

1. Start in one room collecting items your kids no longer use.

2. Supplies needed

3. Pick 9 items because 9 tags print to a page...(save on card stock)

4. Attach the tags to your items and pack them for the sale. Group like items together for easier drop off.

Start with larger items and toys as they sell fast and furious...then start on clothing. 

Bags & Baby Carriers

Diaper bags, infant carriers, backpacks, and purses. Inspect carefully to make sure they haven't been recalled, stained, damaged or are missing pieces. 

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

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

Bedding, Blankets & Textiles

Crib sheets, twin sheets, blankets, nursery decor, burp cloths, and towels. New and barely used items sell best. Check for stains!

WE DO NOT ACCEPT CRIB BUMPERS

Package: Use adult-size hangers to give these items the best chance of selling! 

Tag: If bedding is in a plastic bag, attach tag securely with packing tape to the outside and tape the bag shut. (link to tagging video)

Books, Games, DVDs, Arts & Crafts

Books, book sets, board games, puzzles, video games & consoles, arts & craft sets are great items for resale. 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 to hold multiple items together. Tie sets of books together with ribbon/string. Be sure parts/games to video game systems (such as Vtech) cannot be separated or switched at the sale. Video games will be near checkout to prevent theft.

Tag: Attach with blue painter tape or clear tape that can be removed without damaging it. Hole-punch tag and tie to sets. (link to tagging video)

Clothing

Newborn through size 18 and maternity sizes.

No stained or damaged items. Wash clothing. Replace missing buttons, sew loose hems and seams, and clip loose threads. Button all buttons, snap all snaps, zip all zippers. 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.

Package & Hang:  Use appropriate size hangers. Clothing Sets - Sets under size 5 sell better. Safety pin 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. For standard hangers, use safety pins to attach pants to the top part of the hanger so the garment will not slide. 

Tag:  Use a tagging gun or safety pin to the label of shirt or upper right front of pants. 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). (link to tagging video)

Furniture & Equipment

Exersaucers, swings, high chairs, changing tables, cribs (Manufactured AFTER June 28, 2011; please bring Crib Waiver (link) for all cribs), strollers, bath seats, baby walkers, car seats & car seat accessories must be checked for safety recalls (link), must have all parts, and be in good condition. Children's furniture - beds (toddler, twin), desks, side tables, dressers, etc.  Household furniture - please see Mommy Mart information below.

Package: If item has multiple pieces use packing tape, zip-ties, or string to keep items attached together. If wooden furniture has loose parts, use clear plastic wrap to secure item. All furniture and equipment must be assembled during the sale. Batteries must be included, if applicable. Please bring a Car Seat Checklist (link) for all car seats, booster seats, and car seat bases.

Tag: Attach directly to item with clear packing tape or hole-punch tag and tie it to item. (link to tagging video)

Infant Items

Nursing covers & pillows, feeding items, monitors, safety items, diapering & toileting items, rattles, and more. Check for safety recalls (link) on all items that you consign.

Package: If item has multiple pieces use packing 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.

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

Mommy Mart

LIMIT OF 5 ITEMS!

Household items that other families will use (no knick knacks please). You may consign storage solutions (baskets, shelving), furniture, decor (lamps, wall hangings), and kitchen items (small appliances, utensils, etc.).

Package: If selling multiple pieces together, be sure that all pieces are secured together.

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

Shoes

Make sure shoes are clean, clean, clean! We will be VERY selective. Shoes must be current season (Fall = October thru March; Spring = April thru October).

Package: Fasten shoes together with zip ties. For infant shoes or small shoes without laces, put them in a clear zip-lock bag. We prefer no shoe boxes. However, if shoes are in the box, remove the lid, secure it to the bottom of the box, and secure the shoes to the box (closed boxes do not sell well).

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. (link to tagging video)

Toys

Ride-on toys, block sets, dolls, remote control cars, outdoor toys, learning toys, and more. All toys must be checked for safety recalls (link) before consigning.  Clean all toys and baby equipment thoroughly. Test to make sure toys and equipment work properly. Battery operated toys must include working batteries (these can be purchased inexpensively at local discount stores).

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.

Tag: Attach directly to item with clear packing tape or hole-punch tag and tie it to item. (link to tagging video)

I totally get it...kids are expensive. I have three. I know how fast they grow out of their clothes and toys! 

That's why JBF is the place for you! Sell all those outgrown items AND shop for things they need now. 

Not to mention, unsold items can be donated which helps keep waste out of our landfills and into the homes of local families.
