DROP OFF

Wednesday January 29th

5:00 pm to 8:00 pm

Thursday January 30th

9:00 am to 12:00 pm

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 event ready to be SOLD!

2. Check in at the sale.   You will need to turn in or fill out a Consignor Waiver, pick up your presale passes and signup for to be a team member, 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, or crib you will need to complete these additional waivers. 

3. Grab a rolling rack or buggy 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 close to the entrance.

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.), there may be a different drop off location (detalis to follow).  

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  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!

 

PICK UP

Sunday February 2 (7:00 pm to 9:00 pm)

You have a choice! You may donate your unsold items to our charity partner, OR pick up your unsold items. If you donate your items, you will be helping your local communicty + 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.

Any items not picked up 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 a zip tie. If the item contains multiple pieces, be sure all pieces are included and list number of items on the tag description.

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 can be placed on a hanger. Receiving blankets may be placed in a ziplock bag 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.

Books, Games, DVDs, Arts & Crafts

Books, book sets, board games, puzzles, video games, video game systems, scrapbooks, arts & crafts sets are great items for resale.  In addition to chidren's books, we accept parenting, homeschooling, pregnancy, child rearing content and self help.

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 may 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

Name brand maternity clothing sell best. Examples of  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. 

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.  

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 Ocala 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 Ocala 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.

  • Gather needed supplies: white cardstock, safety pins, hangers, packing tape, resealable baggies, zip-ties and/or string.
  • Tag the big ticket items first, like strollers, high chairs, exersaucers & outdoor equipment (more bang for your buck & they all sell FAST).
  • Double check that clothes and shoes are in good condition, without stains, holes or scuff marks.
  • Position your hangers like question marks when looking at the front of the garment and place the price tag on the right side.
  • Seal baggies shut with packing tape.
  • Presort clothes by size and gender for your drop off convenience.
  • Invest in a tagging gun
