Giveaway: Just Between Friends Children’s Consignment Sales


Just Between Friends (JBF) is a semi-annual community children’s consignment event. These sales are held in the spring and fall in cities across the country, and we’re lucky enough to have not one but two events coming up right here this fall — one in Pflugerville in September, and one in Round Rock in October. And you’re invited to both! JBF is even giving away two Prime Time shopping passes plus a $10 gift certificate to each sale!

A little more about JBF:

JBF is the nation’s leading children’s and maternity consignment sales event, offering families the opportunity to turn their children’s new and gently used items into cash. At JBF events, bargain-savvy shoppers can save money without compromising quality by outfitting their kids at 30–90% off retail prices. You’ll find brand-name fashions, toys, books, costumes, maternity clothes, baby equipment and more, all at a fraction of the retail price. You can also feel great about shopping at JBF since buying and selling items that still have a great deal of life left in them helps save our planet by keeping unnecessary packaging out of our landfills.

To find out more about what a JBF sales event is all about, check out the North Austin FAQs page or the Round Rock FAQs page. This is a great resource for shoppers as well as anyone wondering about volunteering at the event or selling your own items there on consignment. (If you’re interested in becoming a Consignor — selling your items at the event — click here to sign up!)

JBF even has a safety and recall specialist on staff who keeps up with current recalls and safety issues with toys, car seats, clothing items and more — so you can be assured that what you’re purchasing is up to current safety standards for your family. The inspection team and sanitation specialists further ensure that all items for sale are in excellent shape.
