TEAM MEMBER TIPS

​Tip #1 If you can't help out yourself, you can sign up for a shift and have a family member/friend fulfill it for you. Make sure they sign in/out using your consignor number s you get credit!

Tip # 2 Keep your eye out for *BONUS shifts as you will receive credit for more hours than you actually help, allowing you to quickly earn Team Member benefits.

Tip #3 You may divide your four, eight or 12 hours into more than one shift and they do not need to be worked on the same day or by the same person...we love responsible teenagers, husbands and grandmothers!

We always need a few guys (yes, they can join the team for your EARLY SHOPPING PASS....(or you can both work 4 hours together and get more credit) to help with set up and/or breakdown.

We would also love to have some muscle to help shoppers with loading bulkier items to their cars during the sale.

Below are some of the most common Team Member Positions:

​C​heckout: Team member scans tag as shoppers check-out and counts the number of tags. If you can count to 50, you're perfect for this job!

Sales Floor: Team members will float the sales floor, checking for dropped items, missing tags, straightening clothing on racks and tables, or hanging up items that weren't purchased. If you can move from section to section, spot a potential mess of items and make them look awesome, this would be a great job for you!

Greeter: Team member will great customers at the door, tag personal strollers and carriers, check for appropriate presale passes, and direct shoppers to various areas for shopping. If you can talk, smile and be friendly to others, this job would be a super fit for you!

Jack-of-all-Trades: If you can do any or all of the above, then we have hit the jackpot! Sometimes, we may need you in one position and then switch you to another as shifts and number of shoppers change. Working at a JBF sale is so much fun and we always need your help! Please sign up for as many shifts as you can comfortably work!

Breakdown: help sort items for consignor pick up as well as help breakdown the event and supplies.

Bags & Baby Carriers

Diaper bags, infant carriers, backpacks, and purses are great consignment items. Please inspect all items carefully to make sure items have not been recalled, stained, damages or are missing pieces. 

Package:  Please zip-tie items to an adult-size hanger. If you have higher priced items (over $25) please let us know at Drop Off for assistance.

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

Tag: Hole-punch JBF tag and attach it to the 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.

Bedding, Blankets & Textiles

Bedding sizes accepted are bassinet through twin ONLY!  Please be selective when selling bedding, 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 once they get home.

Package: Put bedding/crib/bedroom sets together in original packaging or giant clear plastic bags. Arrange bedding sets inside bag so that shoppers can see all of the items as well as the design/pattern. Secure the bag so that items do not get seperated. Bundle blankets, clothes and towels with ribbon or string like a package (be sure multiple pieces cannot be seperated) unless you are selling them seperately.

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 bedding is in a plastic bag, attach tag securely with packaging tape to the inside of the bag and tape the bag shut (bedding set prices vary widely and securing tags inside prevents tag switching). If bedding/blankets are bundles with string, attach tag directly to blanket and tuck it under the ribbon so that it does not easily get pulled off when shifting around during the sale.

 

Books, Games, DVDs, Arts & Crafts

Books, book sets, board games, puzzles, video game systems, scrapbook, arts & crafts sets are great items for resale. Please only bring kids' parenting, homeschooling, pregnancy and child rearing books. Adult novels are not accepted. Games and puzzles must have all pieces. Check items to ensure they are in great condition.

Package: Use clear, self seal bags or clear cling wrap (saran wrap) to hold multiple items together; Tie sets of books together with ribbon. 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 $0.50 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. If you would like a high priced item places behind the register, please let a volunteer know during Drop Off

Tag: When tagging books, please attach your tag to the book with clear tape that can be removed without damaging the item. Tape tag to the outside cover of glossy books and to the inside cover of paper books as to not tear when removing the tag. Please do not use masking tape or double sided tape. Hole punch JBF tag and tie to sets.

Clothing

We sell children's clothing Newborn through size 20 (limit 20 girl's junior size items, Abercrombie, Hollister, Roxy, American Eagle, Nike, Volcom, Burton preferred) as well as maternity sizes (limit 20 maternity clothing items per consignor). Our Fall Sale is an all season event. Be picky. Look at your clothing items as if you were going to purchase them. No stains 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 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 new the item looks (and the better it smells), the better it will sell.

Package & Hang: Hangers - Please hang clothes so the hanger hook points to the left (like a question mark). Hang size 0-6 clothing on child-size hangers and sizes 7-20 and maternity clothin on adult-size hangers. Clothing that falls off the hanger onto the floor does not sell well.

Furniture & Equipment

Exersaucers, swings, high chairs, changing tables, cribs (Manufactured AFTER June 28, 2011; please bring Crib Waiver for all cribs), strollers, bath seats, baby walkers, car seats & car seat accessories must be checked for safety recalls, must have all parts, and be in good condition.

Children's furniture - beds (toddler, twin), desks, side tables, dressers, etc.

Household furniture - please see Mommy Mart information below.

Package:  If item has multiple pieces use packaging tape, zip-ties, or string to keep items attached together. If wooden furniture has loose parts, use clear plastic wrap to secure item. All furniture and equipment must be assembled during the sale. Batteries must be included, if applicable. Please bring a Car Seat Checklist for all car seats, booster seats, and car seat base or infant carrier.

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

Infant Items

Select:  Nursing covers & pillows, feeding items, monitors, safety items, diapering & toileting items, rattles, and more. Please check for safety recalls on all items that you consign.

Package:  If item has multiple pieces use packaging tape, tagging gun, safety pins or clear self-seal bags to keep items attached together and clearly visible to shoppers. Batteries must be included, if applicable.
Price:  Price 50% - 75% off retail. Items in great condition tend to sell very well.

Tag:  Attach JBF tag directly to item or clear self-seal bag with clear packaging tape or hole-punch JBF tag and tie it to item.

Mommy Mart

Select:  Household items that other families will use (no knick knacks please).  You may consign storage solutions (baskets, bin, shelving), furniture (no upholstered items), 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!

Toys! Toys! Toys!

Select:  Ride-on toys, block sets, dolls, remote control cars, outdoor toys, learning toys, and more. All toys must be checked for safety recalls before consigning.  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).

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.

Tag:  Attach JBF tag directly to item with clear packaging tape or hole-punch JBF tag and tie it to item.

Shoes

Select: Make sure that the shoes are clean, clean, clean! We will be VERY selective with shoes during Consignor Drop Off & Inspection. 

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 good condition and should start at $3.00 for infant/toddler; Add $1 each for larger size, name brand, or heavy/winter.

Valet Consigning

No time to tag? Let us prep your items for you!

We prep your items and you earn 40-50% cash! Valet consignor spaces are limited and will close when spaces fill - and they DO fill quickly! In order to qualify, you must answer YES to at least 2 questions below:

1. Do you have at least 100 items?
​2. Are 80% of your items name brand? (Less than 20% of your items are from Target/Walmart.)
​3. If Valet Tagging were not an option, would it be impossible for you to participate in the next JBF Sales Event?

The JBF Valet Tagging Service is the perfect solution for busy moms who don't have the time to prep and tag their children's outgrown items! Our top-notch taggers do all the work and you get a nice check two weeks after the event!!

If you don’t have the time to prepare and tag your kids’ stuff, call or email us and a Valet Tagging Team Leader will be in touch with you to see how we can best serve you.

Depending upon the level of service you desire, our  Team can take your items and hang, price, tag and drop-off everything at the sale for you.
After the sale is over, you can either pick-up any unsold items or donate them to our children’s charity!

To reserve your Valet Tagging spot at our next sale, contact Patti at  pattimaibauer@jbfsale.com  (usually within four weeks of the next sale). Space is limited, so make sure to confirm your participation early.

We provide cardstock,  tags, tape, tagging guns, etc. If an item requires batteries, you will be charged only the cost of the batteries (and only if needed), since all sale items are required to be in working order at drop-off. (Hangers will be added to your consignor fee, at a rate of $.10/hanger OR YOU CAN PROVIDE YOUR OWN HANGERS AT NO COST.)

We also need to know if unsold items will be picked-up by you or donated to charity.

Your Valet Tagger will enter all tag information into the myjbftags.com barcode system, using your JBF Universal Consignor Number.

PLEASE NOTE:
Your Valet Tagger will price your items according to a general pricing guideline, which is based on 1/4 to 1/3 of the original retail prices of your items. NOTE: No changes (to prices, reduced/not reduced, donated/not donated, etc.) can be made after tags are printed.

The Valet Tagger will drop-off your items at the JBF sale (if desired). You will be able to view your sales (as they are uploaded) by logging into your My JBF Profile and then myjbftags.com account.

After the sale, you can either show up at consignor pick-up (the date/time can be found on our event calendar) to retrieve any unsold items or do nothing and your unsold items will be donated to charity. After you receive your check, please print off a tax deduction for your donation by going to myjbftags.com and clicking on “reports” and then “list of items.” You will choose “unsold/donated items” and then “print” for a list of the items you donated to charity.

NOTE: We automatically delete sold items one month after checks go out, so that moms can start tagging for the next event.
