Gather It ALL Up

Every room  has items that your kiddos are no longer wearing or using. It's time to gather everything and to declutter your home. 

Here's where to check:

  •     Attic or Storage
  •     Kid's Bedroom
  •     Under all the beds
  •     Mom's Closet
  •     Laundry Room 
  •     Linen Closet
  •     Bathroom
  •     Living Room
  •     Mud Room or Hall Closet
  •     Kitchen
  •     Playroom
  •     Garage
  •     Outside

Organize ALL Those Items FAST

Once you have a pile of things your kids are no longer using it's time to decide if you should KEEP, SELL or TOSS each item.

Place each item into one of three piles labeled - KEEP, SELL or TOSS

    KEEP - items that you aren't ready to part with yet. Maybe you're thinking about having another child or maybe the item is too sentimental.  That's ok, we all have those outfits or toys we aren't ready to let go of! Keep it.
    SELL - Items you want to sell
    TOSS - Items that don't meet JBF Standards.

When you're done set aside the KEEP tub and revisit it later. Take the TOSS tub to your local charity, repurpose the items or throw them away. The SELL tub is now ready to tag and prep. Click here for the Guidelines for that step.

Pricing So Shoppers BUY

Selling at JBF lets you be in control of the price of each item. You also decide if it goes half price on the last day of the sale. And if the item doesn't sell, you can either donate the item or pick it up.

 

Successful sellers at JBF practice "Shopper-focused Pricing". Ask yourself, "What price would make me buy this item and brag about it to a friend?"

 

Charge MORE for:

    New with Tags
    "Dressy" items
    Items in Original Packaging
    Large Items
    Popular Toys

Charge LESS for:

    T-shirts
    Play Clothes
    Infant Items
    Maternity Clothing
    Junior Clothing

To sell more  we HIGHLY recommend that you set your items to reduce during our discount days.
 

Prep Those Items

When you are ready to create your tags, Log into your JBF Profile and click on the TAGGING icon on the top right corner of the page.

 

Select CREATE TAGS and then grab your first item and start. (Hot Tip:  Keep the items in order for easy Tag Attachment)

 

Select the Category > Choose the Size > Write a detailed description > Select the Price > Choose if you want it to REDUCE > Choose if you want it to DONATE > Write in the Quantity

 

Save OFTEN.

Are You Ready to Drop Off?

You are AWESOME, your stuff is prepped and tagged!

Phew your house is going to look so de-cluttered, all that is left to do is drop it off and watch your items sell from the comfort of your house!

To make Drop Off a breeze, watch this video on how to organize your items.

We listened to suggestions about how our tagging site is not how the floor is laid out, so we have a list of our floor designations to help you prep for Drop Off.

Also don't forget to fill out your consignor waiver ahead of time.

Dropping Off

Bring your tagged and prepped items to the Fort Bend County Fairgrounds Bldg C 4310 Hwy 36 S Rosenberg TX

It is as Easy as 1, 2,  3

  1.     Drive to the side of Building C for parking and unload your items directly into our sales floor. 
  2.     You are responsible for placing all of your items on the sales floor in their designated places. (There are  Signs in each area)
  3.     Helpers will be on hand to assist you so you'll know where everything goes.    

Plan between 30-60mins to Drop off your items.  Plan extra time if you have children with you.

Consignor Tips

Want to sell like a pro?  Our Consignors with the best sell through rate and the highest checks do the following:

  • They tag and prep only their best items
  • They price to sell, lower priced items that go half price are more likely to sell.  Shoppers are looking for a deal, and they check retail prices online.  If you are selling a shirt for $5, but they can get something similar for $4 and it is going halfprice, they will buy that item and might do it at full price in fear it will be gone by Half Price Day.
  • DON'T get bogged down by the pricing guide, and original retail!  Look at the item, what would YOU pay at a Consignment Sale?  That should be how you price.
  • When all your items are laid out and hung, enter your tags in order and keep the items in order.  Once all the tags are entered then print and attach, because it will go faster.
  • Once all your tags are on, group all the clothes by gender and size, rubber band them together to make drop off SUPER FAST.  Do the same with toys, infant toys in one box/bin/bag etc.  then you can simply place the items by the signed area of the sales floor.
