DROP OFF

Sunday, August 5th | 4pm-8pm
Monday, August 6th | 10am-4pm

Everyone is welcome to drop off either day, no appointment required!

Now for the fun part - getting all of this stuff outta your house!

Here's How it Works & What to Expect:
1. Prep, price and organize your items at home (see details below) and bring to the fairgrounds ready to be SOLD!

2. Enter the fairgrounds on the southeast side of the 4H Building (closest to Walmart) and check in at the Consignor Check-in table.  You will need to turn in or fill out a Consignor Waiver, get your "I've checked in" sticker, pick up your presale passes and signup for a volunteer shift if you would like to earn an additional percentage on your sold items (if you haven't already).  If you are consigning a car seat, car seat base or crib you will need to complete these additional waivers. 

3. Grab a rolling rack to help unload your items from your vehicle and bring them inside.  Rolling racks are available on a first come, first serve basis and are typically either outside on the porch or in the hallaway near the consignor check-in table when available.  

4. We recommend having your items sorted by size and gender to make your drop off process smoother.

5. If you are selling baby equipment and larger toys (pack-n-plays, car seats, bikes, jump-a-roo's, strollers, car seats, furniture, etc.) drop off these items off at the Annex Building to the north of the 4H Building.   

6. Inspection of clothes and shoes will take place after you drop off.  So you can go ahead and take your clothing items to the racks and place them in the appropriate sizes.  Place shoes in the designated marked size bins.  All items pulled for rejection will be scanned & marked.  If you are donating, they will be donated to our charity partners.  If you are picking up, they will be sorted with your unsold items to gather at consignor pick up.

7. Watch your sales grow with our real-time updates. Cha-Ching!

Find more stuff to sell? 2nd Drop Off is Wednesday, August 8th | 5pm-7pm for toys, baby equipment and furniture. We do not accept clothes and shoes for second drop off.  

PICK UP

Sunday, August 12th | 7pm-9pm

You have a choice! You may donate your unsold items to our charity partner, The Good Samaritan Network of Hamilton County OR pick up your unsold items. If you donate your items, you will be helping our local community + receive a letter for tax purposes with your consignor check.

If you pick up your unsold items, they will be sorted by Consignor/Seller number for your convenience.

At 9:01pm remaining items are donated to our charity. Sorry, no exceptions!

*If you marked DONATE on your items, those will be pulled and donated on your behalf and you do NOT need to pick up.

Bags & Baby Carriers

Diaper bags, infant carriers, backpacks, lunch boxes and kid's 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.

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

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

Click on the "view tutorials" link below to see easy how-to tagging videos.

Blankets & Textiles

Be selective when selling 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 or lot of bibs once they get home.

Package:  Larger blankets should be placed on a hanger. Receiving blankets may be placed in to ziplock page wth the tag taped to the outside of the bag. 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. Price 75% - 90% off retail.

Tag:  If the item is placed in a plastic bag, attach the tag securely with packaging tape to the inside of the bag and tape the bag shut. If blankets are bundled with string or on a hanger, attach the tag directly to blanket with a tagging gun or safety pin.

Click on the "view tutorials" link below to see easy how-to tagging videos.

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.  In addition to chidren's books, we accept parenting, homeschooling, pregnancy and child rearing content.

Games and puzzles must have all pieces.  No "adult" content, rated "R" DVD's or rated "M" video games. We are unable to accept VHS tapes. Check dvds and video games for scratches and double check to ensure the disk is in the case!

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.

Tag:  When tagging books, please attach your tag to the book with clear tape or blue painter's tape that can be removed without damaging the item. Tape the tag to the outside back cover. Please do not use double sided tape on the books themselves. Hole-punch the tag and tie to sets.

Clothing

Before you start entering your clothing items, please inspect them being sure you are following the JBF guidelines for quality.  Do not sell any items that have stains, tears, holes, rips, are too worn, or out of season.  Per the consignor agreement, as a result of our new easy drop off and inspection process on site, all consignors are able to have up to 5 items pulled for quality at the sale. After 5 items, you will be charge a $.25/pulled item fee for any clothing/shoe item that is rejected. Those fees will be taken out of your check.

We sell children's clothing newborn through size 18 for boys and Juniors for girls. There is no limit on clothing however, tweens and teens can be picky so please only bring your best.  Acceptable Junior brands include the following:

  • Abercrombie
  • Hollister
  • Aeropostle
  • Gap
  • American Eagle
  • Forever 21
  • Nike, Reebok, Puma, Adidas
  • Under Armour
  • North Face
  • Boutique Brands

Maternity must be brand name (and not non-maternity women's clothing). Acceptable maternity brands include the following:

  • Ann Taylor
  • Liz Lange
  • Motherhood Maternity
  • Mimi
  • Old Navy/Gap
  • Pea in the Pod
  • Boutique brands

Quality:  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. 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 more you will sell.

Package & HangHangers - 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 6-20 and maternity clothing on adult-size hangers. See below for a helpful guide on where to find FREE or low cost hangers.

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 (or safety pins) 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 - The most successful JBF Consignors practice “Shopper-Focused Pricing”. You’re a smart bargain shopper - simply ask, “What price would make me buy this item without hesitation...and brag about it later to a friend?”

We DO NOT have a $3 rule at the JBF North Indy sale. We encourage you to price your items competitively and use the pricing guide below as a resource. You are welcome to use any type hanger at the JBF North Indy sales events.

Tag:  Clothing on Hangers - Attach the 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 NOTE, we can only accept cribs if they have a certificate of compliance from the manufacture.  Children's furniture like beds (toddler & twin, unless part of a recalled crib), desks, side tables, dressers, etc. are a-okay too!

If wooden furniture has loose parts, use clear plastic wrap or clear self-seal bags to secure the item. All furniture and equipment must be assembled during the sale.

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

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!

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 (August = All Seasons; April = Spring/Summer).

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 excellent and priced right to sell. 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 self-seal bag, put the tag inside the bag and tape the bag shut.

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).

We accept stuffed toys that are characters (such as Mickey Mouse or Dora), pillow pets, battery operated (like Tickle Me Elmo) or brand new with tag. Please, no generic stuffed animals.

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.

Hi, I'm Dawn Pfannenstiel and I organize the JBF sale in North Indy. Over the past ten years, we have helped thousands of moms and dads just like you clean up and cash in with JBF.

As a mom, I get it!  Raising kids on a budget is tough...not to mention they grow out of things SO fast.  That's why I brought Just Between Friends to my hometown. The event allows local families to sell the items their kids no longer use, and get way MORE for LESS! It's a win-win and why I love JBF...I know you will too!
