Just Between Friends Kids Sales are one the best ways to save money on gently used (and new!) kids items, and to make some cash selling your kids’ used items!
And I’m excited to partner with Just Between Friends of Eagan and Apple Valley, whose next sales are coming up in late July and early August! COVID-19 has affected and cancelled a lot of things, including consignment sales that had been scheduled for this year. But with the proper social distancing guidelines in place, sales are now happening safely including Just Between Friends sales in Eagan and Apple Valley!
Normally, JBF of Eagan has their fall sale in early August, but because they had to cancel their spring sale, they are having ALL SEASON sales so you can find everything your kids need year-round!
What is a Just Between Friends Sale?
Did you know that ANYONE can sell their maternity, baby and kids items at a Just Between Friends sale? It’s a great way to make some extra cash while giving your old items a new life with other families!
But also, everyone can shop with the Just Between Friends Eagan/Apple Valley Kids Sale Events. There are two weeks to shop the deals, and a limited number of consignors so to ensure proper space at the sale.
You will find:
- Baby and children’s clothing
- Junior & maternity clothing
- Baby equipment
- Sporting goods
- Room decor
- TOYS, TOYS, TOYS! (The kids always love to check out the selection!)
- And more…
Make Money as a Consignor
Do you have stuff to sell? Become a consignor now and make some extra cash!
Consignors earn an average of $350 per sale! They make 60% of the sales of their items, and it can go up to 70% if you help as a team member at the sale for 4 hours!
Plus, as a consignor you get to SHOP EARLY on the day before opening day. That means you get FIRST ACCESS to what’s for sale!
There’s a consignor fee of $12 to participate. This can be waived if you have at least 75 items and mark them for “reduce & donate” which means that on the last day of the sale, they will be discounted and then unsold items donated to charity.
If you don’t have time to tag your items, valet tagging is available! They have some limited space still for the second week but that will fill fast!
There’s more information on their consignors page.
