Due to COVID 19 safety measures, all consignors must register for a pickup time.

Social distancing guidelines limit the number of people allowed in the building at any one time, requiring us to keep an accurate person count. For this reason, consignors will be admitted at their registered pickup time and up to 15 minutes past that time. Consignors arriving 20+ minutes past their registered pick up time or those without a registered pickup time will not be admitted.

All items in the building as of 7:01pm on Monday will be donated to our charity partners.


Pick up is super simple. Take a tour from our Lancaster sale, (the process is the same at all of our sales).

Bags & Baby Carriers

Diaper bags, infant carriers, backpacks, lunch boxes and kid's purses are great consignment items. We are unable to accept women's handbags including Vera Bradley unless it is a diaper bag.

Please inspect all items carefully to make sure items have not been recalled, stained, damaged or are missing pieces. We no longer accept breast pumps; however, pump accessories are okay to sell.

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 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.

Check THIS LIST to see what items need to get a YELLOW TICKET and/or need to be sanitized.

Blankets & Textiles

Be selective when selling blankets, receiving blankets, burp cloths, and towels. New and barely used items sell best. Check carefully for stains. PLEASE NOTE, we DO NOT accept comforters, sleeping bags or bumper pads.

Package:  Larger blankets should be placed on a hanger. Receiving blankets may be placed into a Ziploc bag with 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. Try to price 75% - 90% off retail.


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

Books, Games, DVDs, Arts & Crafts

There is a 100 TOTAL TAG LIMIT for Books/DVDs.  (Example:  60 books & 40 DVDs, not 100 books and 100 DVDs).

 

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

Games and puzzles MUST have all pieces.  No "adult" content please or "M" video games, please. 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 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 tag to the outside cover. Please do not use masking or double sided tape. Hole-punch JBF tag and tie to sets.

Click to see our Seasonal Guidelines

 

We sell children's clothing newborn through size 18 for boys and Juniors for girls. There is a limit of 10 items in brand name girl's junior size 0-11. Junior brands include the following:

  • Abercrombie
  • Aeropostale
  • American Eagle
  • Forever 21
  • Gap
  • Hollister
  • Nike, Reebok, Puma, Adidas

  • 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.  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 more you will sell.

Package & Hang:  Hangers - 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. Refer to this GUIDE when looking for low cost or no 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 to attach clothing sets securely with bottom garment hung on the backside of the shirt, so both pieces can be viewed without separating them.

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. We encourage you to price your items competitively and use this GUIDE as a resource.

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 a tagging gun or safety pins to attach tags to socks, tights, and accessories. Be sure to also attach multiple pieces together. Then put these items into clear zip-lock bags.

Hangers & Tagging Guns

HANGER INFO: Hangers can be plastic tube, department store, wire, plastic coated wire or pant clip hangers. When hanging pants, attach safety pins to the TOP part of the hanger to ensure that pants will not slide. The best hangers to use for pants are clip hangers like the ones used in department stores.

 

TAGGING GUNS: Using a tagging gun can save you a lot of time however it is completely optional. If you choose to use a tagging gun, please make sure you tag your items through the inside tag, inside lip of the neck area or the shoulder seam. The tag must fall on the outside of the shirt so it is easily seen by shoppers.

 

This short VIDEO will walk you through how to properly tag with a tagging gun.  Click HERE for tagging gun guidelines.

Hi, I'm Tracy and I organize the Lower Bucks County sale! While this is a relatively new location for us, over the past 13 years, we have helped thousands of Philadelphia area moms and dads just like you, clean up and cash in with JBF.

In addition to Lower Bucks, we (because this is a total TEAM effort) organize events in Oaks, Reading, and Lancaster...whew, that's a lot of stuff to coordinate and you know what? We love it!

As a mom, I get it!  Raising kids on a budget is tough...not to mention they grow out of things so darn fast. That's why we created Just Between Friends. Our award winning events allows local families to sell the items their kids no longer use, and get WAY MORE for LESS!

See you at the sale!
