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 (safety links below), stained, damaged or are missing pieces.


Package:  Please zip-tie items to an adult-size hanger. All high-priced items (over $20) will be zip tied to a clothing rack end cap display near Checkout and Large Item Yellow Tags will be added to them. Items will NOT be removed from display until the item has been paid for at checkout. Please see a JBF Helper 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.

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/large mesh laundry 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. 


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 have a high-priced item that you would like placed 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. Blue painters tape is also a great tool for attaching tags on easily damaged items. Hole-punch JBF tag and tie to sets.

Clothing

We sell children's clothing Newborn through size 20/juniors (limit 15 girl's junior size items per consignor: Abercrombie, Hollister, Roxy, American Eagle, Nike, Miss Me and other high end brands are preferred).


Our Spring/Summer Sale is spring through summer clothing only (what your child would wear between early April- October). Be picky. Look at your clothing items as if you were going to purchase them. No stained or damaged items will be accepted.  Any items that look like "mom's" clothes will be rejected at inspection. 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.


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 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). 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.

*Onesies, 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 if the items are short-sleeve onesies or long-sleeve onesies.


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. 

Non-hanging Clothing - Put sets together to price for at least $3.00, but okay to price for less (i.e., 6 pair of socks for $1.50).


Tag:

Clothing on Hangers - Attach tag with 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). 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. 

Non-Hanging Clothing - Please use tagging gun or safety pins to attach tags to onesies, socks, tights, infant mittens, and accessories. Be sure to also attach multiple pieces together. Then put these items into clear zip-lock bags. Please do not tape bags closed - shoppers want to feel and inspect items before purchasing.

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


Price:  Price to sell!  These items are not the primary reason shoppers come to JBF, so the 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.

Shoes

Make sure that 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).


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. However, if shoes are in the box, please remove the lid, secure it to the bottom of the box, and secure the shoes to the box (closed boxes do not sell well).


Price: Shoes must be in good condition and should start at $3.00 for infant/toddler; Add $1 each for larger size, name brand, or heavy/winter.


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.

Toys

Ride-on toys, block sets, dolls, remote control cars, outdoor toys, learning toys, and more. All toys must be checked for safety recalls (links below) 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). Consignors that drop off items without batteries or non-working batteries will be assessed a $1 battery fee PER battery replaced.


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:  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. Large Item Yellow Tickets will be placed on large items during drop off. Please ask a JBF Helper for assistance during drop off.

VIP Tagging Service

If you simply don't have time to tag your items, we also offer VIP Tagging service!

*** The deadline for the Spring/Summer 2018 event is Saturday March 31st. You can still have items tagged after this date, but there will be a rush fee taken out of your consignor check. If you miss the cutoff or want to start cleaning out for the Fall/Winter event early, we will begin accepting items for the Fall/Winterr 2018 sale at the end of April 2018!

How does VIP Tagging work?

It's very easy! You simply go to Eventbrite HERE to purchase your VIP Consignor tickets, complete your waiver and receive instruction on preparing your items for drop off to the VIP Tagging Service. Next, you make an appointment to meet with the VIP Tagging Service Coordinator by emailing JBFWacoviptagging@yahoo.com. The VIP Tagging Service Coordinator will coordinate getting your items to the VIP tagger. Once your items are entered in the tagging system, you will be given the opportunity to review the tags for approval. Once your items are completely prepped for the sale, they will then be transferred to our storage facility and we take them directly to the sale for you. All you need to do is sit back and wait for your check!

What do I earn?

You will earn 50% of your sold items minus any fees and if you are a JBF Helper you will earn 60% of your sold items minus any fees.

Do I still get a presale pass?

Yes! You will qualify for a consignor presale pass.

Can I still be a JBF Waco Helper and qualify for an earlier presale and earn an extra 10%?

Yes! We LOVE our Team Members and have a great time! Remember, the more you help the earlier you shop!

When is the deadline?

March 31, 2018 is the deadline. After this date there is a rush fee taken out of your consignor check.

Do you take big items (furniture/outside toys/baby equipment/etc)?

Yes! These are the items that will dramatically help you grow your check so please bring these and let us help you clear out these items. When it is time to drop off your items, please make sure to let the VIP Tagging Service Coordinator know if you are bringing large items so that they can make the proper arrangements. Also, please make sure these items are clean and ready for the sales floor.

Where are the items stored?

During the tagging process your items will be stored in the VIP Taggers home. Once your items are tagged they will be taken to our secure climate controlled storage facility.

How do items get to the sale?

Your items will be transported to the sale via a trailer/rental box truck. Then our amazing team helps put the items on the sales floor for you.

What happens to my items after the sale?

You get to decide if you want to donate your items to our participating charity partner or come pick them up. Clearly mark your choices on the Eventbrite VIP Consignor ticket form on whether you want your unsold items donated, pick up, and if you want your items to be reduced during the Half-Price sale days. We do not have the ability to pick up the items for you and it is your responsibility to check the website to know the pick up times and date.

After I pick up my unsold items from the sale, can I take them to other JBF sales or bring them back for the next JBF Waco sale?

Absolutely! That is the beauty of JBF! Once your items are tagged you can take them to any JBF in the US or Canada! Why not try to send them to another JBF because the perfect buyer might come to that sale.

Why are the instructions so specific on the VIP Tagging Waiver?

We tag thousands of items for people and need to keep our system efficient. By having you prep your items using our instructions it also helps ensure that you are sending quality items and it helps us make sure that we can help you earn the most money. We are here to help you earn the most money possible and by you taking the time to prepare your items according to our directions this helps us help you!

What is your best advice for a VIP Consignor?

BE PICKY! Our VIP Taggers are our pickest inspectors. They are instructed to not let anything in the sale that would not meet our JBF standards. Remember our JBF shoppers expect the best so that is what we expect from our consignors. It will also help you to follow the expectations closely for your items. This helps the VIP Tagger understand your items better.

What should I send my items in?

Cardboard boxes or plastic tubs you don't need back are perfect. Clothes sent in trash bags will not be accepted because they are hard to sort and wrinkle too easily. Please keep in mind that we cannot store any tubs, bags, etc for you so please do not send something you need back.

Why should I group my items and be sure they are clean?

We require our VIP Consignors to group their items by outfit/size/gender to help make the tagging process as easy as possible for the VIP Tagger. This also helps because the tagger is not having to guess at what goes together or what you would want as a seller. All of your items need to be clean and ready for the sales floor to help ensure that you can make the most money possible in your JBF check.

Is there a minimum or limit to the number of items that I can send to the VIP Tagger?

No, there is not a minimum or limit and we accept all seasons.

What supplies does JBF Waco provide?

JBF Waco will provide the ink, cardstock, printing services, safety pins, zip ties, hangers, and a few other basic supplies. Be sure that all of your items are together if you are sending sets. Be sure that all of your items have working batteries because it is a standard to charge $1 per battery that has to be replaced due to non-working batteries. This is because items that do not have working batteries do not sell since shoppers aren't sure if they work. We do this to help you earn more money and to help reassure our shoppers that they are getting the best from JBF.

How do I pay the VIP Consignor Fee?

You will pay the VIP Consignor Fee HERE.

What do the VIP Tagging fees cover?

Supplies, storage, use of the trailer/truck to transport the items, the VIP Taggers time and expertise, administrative duties, etc.

I LOVE THIS SERVICE!!! WHAT DO I DO NEXT?

Prep your items according to the instructions on your Eventbrite VIP Consignor ticket confirmation and let us know when these steps are completed. We will make an appointment with you to get your items. We look forward to helping you find cash in your closets!

Who do I contact with questions or to make an appointment?
