We are the largest children's consignment sale in Colorado. We advertise, staff and operate the event. We advertise in more places, have the most shoppers and are part of the nation's leading consignment business..in short we have a lot of experience at what we do and that translates into a smoother process and more $$ for our consignors!
As a consignor, you make 60% on your item sales less the $11 consignor fee and you set the price on your items. You can increase your take home percentage to 70% by signing up as a team member and working at the event. You can also increase your take home percentage by an additional 5% by referring 3 people to consign or an additional 5% (for a total of 10%) by referring 5 people to consign. Each consignor must reference your name in their online signup (in the comments section) and show up with items to consign and meet all consignor requirements. You get to shop at the consignor preview sale BEFORE we open to the public. Your items will be sorted for you at pick up or you may choose to donate them to our charity partner.

After you register, you are ready to get started. Please read all of the information located under merchandise prep. Pay close attention to how to tag your items.
Just Between Friends of Colorado Springs offers its consignors VIP tagging services for moms that want to earn money for their items, but do not have the time to tag them and prep their items. VIP Clients still earn the valuble presale pass to shop before the public with all consignors and make 40% of their sales, rather than the standard 60%. Since the VIP Tagging team is providing the tagging supplies (zip ties, bags, hangers, safety pins, card stock, ink cartridges, etc), VIP Clients pay a $16 consignor fee, rather than the $11 consignor fee. The $16 fee is for the first 100 items and will increase by $5 for each additional 100 items.
To sign up: Please contact our VIP Tagging Team Lead (information below) and give her your location in Colorado Springs. She will get back to you with your assigned VIP tagger who is closest to your location and will be able to answer any questions you may have.
THE PROCESS: There is a limit of two drops per sale to your tagger, so please be sure that you have gathered all items that you would like to sell. See below for VIP item limitations. The VIP Tagger will then enter your items in the www.myjbftags.com barcoding software. You will have 48 hours to review and approve the entries if you choose or you can waive your approval for faster tagging. The VIP Tagger will then prep, hang and tag your items making them marketable for the sale. The VIP Tagger will then transport your items to the sale during the designated drop off time. You will receive your presale pass and be able to shop before the public for the best deals! If you would like to volunteer, you can earn a volunteer presale pass but will not be eligible for the additional 10%. You may elect to have unsold items picked up or donated. If you choose to pick up items, you will need to pick them up at the designated pick up time. Two weeks after the sale, your check is mailed.
VIP Clients item limitations and requirements:
Please sort through your items to ensure no stained, ripped or missing buttons for the clothing and that the toys and equipment are in good working condition. All toys that require batteries must possess working batteries before being dropped off to a tagger. All items must be clean. Please sort clothing items by sex and by size. Clothing may be delivered in large bags, boxes or plastic tubs. Tubs should be clearly labeled with name and consignor number. Items that are not accepted will need to be picked up at the VIP coordinator's home prior to the sale or the items will be donated.
ALL CONSIGNORS WITH MORE THAN 500 ITEMS MUST HAVE AN APPOINTMENT TO DROP OFF. Appointments can be made with Lynn by emailing her at Lynn@jbfsale.com.
Drop off will take place at Freedom Financial Services Expo Center, 3650 N. Nevada Avenue, Colorado Springs, CO 80907. When dropping off or picking up your items, please park in the front and walk in through the open roll-up door to the right of the building. VEHICLES WILL NOT BE ABLE TO PULL INTO THE BUILDING.
• Sort clothing by size and gender. Your clothing should be hung on hangers prior to drop off. We do not provide hangers. Please review the merchandise preparation guidelines on our Merchandise Prep page for details.
• We will deduct your $11 consignor fee from your check. We do not require a self-addressed stamped envelope. One will be provided for you.
• Please start at the check-in table as you enter. Sign a waiver.
• Your items will be inspected for acceptability and proper tagging. Items not acceptable for consignment will be returned to you at this time. If you are consigning a car seat, crib, stroller, high chair, pack n play or exersaucer/walker, you will need to have them checked for recalls. If you are selling a car seat, you will need to sign a car seat waiver stating that it has not been recalled and has never been in an accident. All shoes will also need to be individually inspected as we only accept "like new" shoes.
• After screening, you will put your clothing on the selling floor by size, gender and type. Toys will be placed on tables, books on bookshelves, etc. Children are permitted at drop off but it is very busy and they MUST remain with you AT ALL TIMES!!!
• Pick up your consignor presale pass at the check-out table after all of your items are on the floor. Please allow 1 hour+ for drop off based on the number of items you are consigning!
What to expect at pick-up:
PLEASE MAKE SURE THAT YOU BRING YOUR CONSIGNOR NUMBER WITH YOU TO PICK UP. THIS WILL SPEED UP THE PROCESS...THANK YOU!
Items will already be sorted by consignor number for easy pick up. ALL OF YOUR REMAINING ITEMS WILL BE TOGETHER INCLUDING ITEMS YOU MARKED FOR DONATION. AT THAT TIME, YOU MAY CHOOSE WHICH ITEMS YOU WOULD LIKE TO DONATE AND PLACE THEM WITH OUR DONATIONS.
PLEASE NOTE: IF ANY OF YOUR ITEMS WERE PULLED FROM THE FLOOR FOR STAINS, RIPS OR TEARS AND WRONG SEASON, THESE ITEMS WILL NOT BE SORTED BACK INTO YOUR PICK UP ITEMS. WE WILL HAVE A DESIGNATED AREA WHERE YOU CAN LOOK THROUGH THOSE ITEMS BUT THAT WILL BE YOUR RESPONSIBILITY TO LOCATE THOSE ITEMS. THANK YOU FOR YOUR UNDERSTANDING.
Please make sure that you check-in when you arrive to pick up your remaining items. This ensures that all of your items are picked up and all of your paperwork is in order to receive a timely check. Please check the lost and found area for items that have missing tags.
Items not picked up by 3:01 will be donated.
VERY IMPORTANT! If you are unable to pick up your unsold items please make arrangements with someone to pick them up for you. No entrance will be admitted to anyone who is late.
Remember that we have a 20 item or $100 minimum to consign.
All things TAGGING:
Please remember to hang your items properly according to the picture with the tag on the top right side. If using a tagging gun, please remember to put the tagging barb through a seam or in the tag inside the item to prevent leaving a hole. Items with holes from tagging barbs cannot be accepted.
