DROP OFF

At JBF, we make drop off and pick up super EASY & FAST!

  • At drop off, we inspect your items AFTER you have dropped them at the sale. No waiting in long lines, no awkward inspections.

Drop Off:

  • Monday, August 27th 5-7:30pm & Tuesday, August 28th 9:30am-2:30pm. No appointment needed

Drop Off Procedures:

  • Please bring your consignor waiver to drop off (unless you completed the electronic waiver), and your crib and car seat waivers if applicable
  • When you arrive, bring one item inside to "check in". You will then return to your car to gather your remaining items. We have rolling racks and carts for you to borrow
  • You will place all of your items on the sales floor and they will be inspected AFTER you drop them off. Items that do not pass inspection will be held for you to pick up, or automatically donated if marked "donate".

Watch your sales LIVE on our online tagging system. It's that easy!

Second Chance Drop Off:

  • Wednesday, August 29th from 8 pm - 9 pm after presales
  • Find more items to sell? Tag them and drop them off Wednesday night, and still have 2 more days to sell! All items accepted except clothing and shoes

PICK UP

Pick Up:

  • Sunday, Sept 2nd, 10 am - noon

Pick Up Procedures:

  • You may pick up your unsold items or donate some/all of your items to our charity partners.
  • Pickup is QUICK and EASY, as all of your items will be sorted for you in a neat little pile at pickup. No running around the sales floor trying to find your stuff. We do the work for you!

NOTE: Consignors who help with the sorting shift on Saturday night will be allowed to pickup their unsold items once the shift is complete

POWER SELLERS:

  • Consignors bringing over 300 tags, who are NOT donating their items, are required to help 2 hours during the sorting shift (Saturday, Sept 1st 6:30-8:30pm). These 2 hours DO NOT COUNT toward the 4 volunteer hours needed to earn an additional 10% of sales (they are in addition to those hours).

STEP 1: Register to Consign

EVEN IF YOU HAVE CONSIGNED WITH US BEFORE, you must register for our sale EVERY season.

Here's how to register:

  • Login to your consignor profile (or if you have never created a profile, create a new one) by CLICKING HERE.
  • Locate our sale called "Quakertown/Hatfield". If you do not see it, search by zip code.
  • Click "sign up" and check the "consignor" box.

That's it! You should now receive a confirmation email with lots of information on consigning!

After you have registered, you are eligible to join our exclusive Facebook consignor group. Click here to join.

STEP 2: Gather Items and Supplies

It's time to gather all of the items that have been outgrown, unused, and are sitting around collecting dust...and turn them into CASH!

  • Go from room to room, checking closets, the play room, basement, garage, and outdoor toys. Click here for items that are acceptable at our sale.
  • Collect supplies you will need for cleaning and tagging including hangers, magic erasers, stain sticks, febreeze, safety pins, a tagging gun (optional), cardstock, curling ribbon, ziplock bags, batteries. Dollar Store items will do!
  • As you are collecting, check the Consumer Product Safety Commission for recalls of your items. All recalls must be fixed prior to the items being sold at our sale. Click here to check for recalls.

Please contact us at kendrasalem@jbfsale.com or barbaraborascius@jbfsale.com with any questions!

STEP 3: Clean Items

Clothing items

  • Must look and smell clean. Try washing with oxiclean, a stain-stick, or spray with febreeze. If clothes are wrinkled throw them in the dryer with a wet washcloth, or run an iron lightly over your items.

Shoes

  • Must be like new! Please bring only your best! We will not accept items with excessive wear, scuffs, or worn-down rubber soles. Magic erasers help clean up shoes really well. Some shoes you can put right through your washer and dryer!

Toys, books, games & puzzles

  • Must be in good shape! Make sure there are no missing pieces. All toys must have batteries if needed (dollar store batteries will do). Wipe down the items to remove all dirt and dust. Magic erasers take crayon right off of toys and desks, etc.

Furniture and Large Items

  • All children's furniture is acceptable. Please make sure furniture is in good condition. Only children's furniture will be accepted, no general home decor please.

Please contact us at kendrasalem@jbfsale.com or barbaraborascius@jbfsale.com with any questions!

STEP 4: Prepare Items

Clothing

  • Clothing must be hung on appropriately sized hangers. Hangers are available for free at stores like Old Navy, Carters, OshKosh, Walmart, and Target. You may also purchase hangers at the Dollar Store or Walmart. See the tagging how-to videos HERE for how to attach items to the hangers so that they do not fall off. The videos also outline how to attach pants and outfit sets. Hangers must look like a "?" with the opening to the left. Items should be secured with safety pins so they stay on the hangers.
  • Outfit sets should be safety pinned together with the safety pin also around the hanger itself, so that the pants do not weigh down the shirt causing a hole or tear. See tagging how-to videos for further explanation.

Maternity Items

  • For maternity items, please pin tops to the hangers so that they do not fall off. Please use pants hangers or safety-pin pants to the clothing hanger so that they are visible and upright. Pants folded over hangers will not be accepted.

Shoes

  • Pairs of shoes should be secured together with zip ties or curling ribbon (again available at the dollar store). If they cannot be secured together you should place them in a clear ziplock bag.

Toys, books, games & puzzles

  • Small parts should be placed in a ziplock bag and secured to the larger item (if they come in a set) with packing tape. Boxes for games and puzzles should be taped shut (try painters tape so the box doesn't rip). Items should be secure and contained. Try using clear plastic wrap on wooden puzzles to keep the pieces in place. Tape all bags shut with packing tape.

Blankets, diaper bags, carriers

  • Items that sell well on hangers are blankets, diaper bags, infant carriers, sheets, towels and backpacks. Please secure the items to the hanger with a zip-tie or curling ribbon.

There are lots of tagging videos on how to prepare items which are less than 3 minutes in length. See the videos HERE.

Please contact us at kendrasalem@jbfsale.com or barbaraborascius@jbfsale.com with any questions!

STEP 5: Enter Tags

  • CLICK HERE to login to your JBF account. Check to make sure you are signed up for our event. Even if you have consigned with JBF before you must "sign up" for each sale you intend to participate in.
  • Once logged in, click "Enter My Tags"
  • Using our Pricing Guidelines enter each of your items. We generally recommend pricing your items at 1/3 retail price. Think, "what would I pay for this item?". We also recommend pricing your items at 50% off for our half price day for the selling success. It is up to you whether you choose to pick up or donate your items after the sale.
  • Use the tagging website how-to videos if you are unsure how to enter your tags. Videos can be found under the "HELP" tab. Our free online tagging system works best in firefox and internet explorer. You may have trouble printing your tags using google chrome
  • Print your tags on white cardstock. Tags will not be accepted on plain paper, as they tear off and are lost too easily.

Please contact us at kendrasalem@jbfsale.com or barbaraborascius@jbfsale.com with any questions!

STEP 6: Attach Tags & Store Items

  • Attach tags to your clothing items using safety pins or a tagging gun. Please see tagging gun guidelines HERE so that you do not put holes in your clothing making them unsellable. Tags attached with safety pins should be placed on the upper right hand corner of the item (when you are facing the item). Tags attached with a tagging gun should be placed through the tag of the garment or straight through a seam, NOT through the fabric of the item.
  • Attach tags to your toys and other items using safety pins or packing tape. Do not place tape over the barcode, as it makes the barcodes difficult for our scanners to read
  • Store your items in bins and boxes in a clean dry place, until you are ready to drop off at our sale! Consider placing a dryer sheet in the box with clothing or linen items to keep them smelling fresh!

Again, if you are more of a visual learner we have lots of tagging videos for you to view. All videos are less than 2-3 minutes in length.

Please contact us at kendrasalem@jbfsale.com or barbaraborascius@jbfsale.com with any questions!

Hello! We are Kendra and Barb, a daughter and mom team who organize the JBF Quakertown/Hatfield and Allentown/Bethlehem sales.

We are avid shoppers and deal-hunters and we GET IT, raising kids is expensive. After shopping other local JBF sales and finding like-new items for CHEAP, we knew we had to bring JBF back to the area. We love helping thousands of moms, dads and grandparents, just like you, to earn money on their kids' outgrown items, and to save money shopping at our sale.

Whether you SELL or SHOP with JBF (or both), we hope to put extra cash in your familiy's pocket!
