JBF Supplies Video
** Please note, ZIP TIES must be used on shoes and are recommended for attaching tags to odd shaped items like toys.  Wire and plastic tube hangers for clothing only.**

Supply Tips:

● Use good quality safety pins. Cheap safety pins bend and fold. They won't hold the weight of the clothing.
● Use 65lb. white card stock at minimum. Regular weight paper (20lb.) will not be accepted. It tears and folds easily.
● Zip-ties (Cable-ties) can be used to secure tags to a variety of items; toys, furniture, and shoes (manditory). Purses, backpacks, diaper bags and baby carriers also need to be zip-tied to hangers.

Supplies available for purchase:

Tagging Kit $25

Tagging gun and 200 barbs
50 child-sized wire hangers (for clothing sized 4 and under)
20 sheet of white card-stock (can make 120 tags)
200 commercial-grade #1 safety pins
20 zip ties (various sizes)

Individual supplies:

Tagging gun with 200 barbs $15
200 barbs only $1
​25 recycled Dry Cleaner hanger $1

Tagging Guidelines

Please review our What We Accept document at the link above for a detailed listing of what we will accept at our Fall/Winter sales evevnt.

Price: Please refer to our printable Pricing Guide at the link below (pink circle) at the bottom of this page.

Clothing: Clothing should be priced at a minumum of $3.  If a single piece of clothing does not have a $3 value, put multiple onto to a single hanger (i.e. sell as a set) to reach at least $3. 

0-24 month clothing should be priced competitively, there is a lot of clothing in this size range. 

Clothing 2T and above can be priced slightly higher.  Price items for what you would want to pay at a JBF sale.  It is highly recommended that clothing items go 50% off on the last day of the sale.

Shoes: Must be in excellent condition and should start at $3.00.

Tags: Print all tags on white card stock with a weight of at least 65lbs. Regular printer paper will tear easily and may result in lost items.

See 'Large Items' drop down for special tagging instructions.

Hangers: Wire (preferred) and plastic tube hangers are accepted.  No store hangers, swivel, or pant hangers.  Please hang clothes so the hanger hook points to the left (like a question mark). Hang size 0-4 clothing on child-size or adult-size hangers and sizes 5 & up and maternity clothing on adult-size hangers.

Safety Pins: Please use #1 or larger safety pins.  No mini safety pins or straight pins, they do not hold the clothing.

Clothing on Hangers: Tags should be safety pinned to the top right corner of shirts and/or pants.  When using a tagging gun, place tag through clothing tag.  If there is no tag, place in inside seam of the garment.  DO NOT put tagging gun needle through cloth of garment, it will get ruined and pulled from the sale.  Items with holes from tagging guns can not be sold.  Please see Tagging Gun Guidelines at link below.

Clothing Sets: Sets tend to sell better (under size 6) so match tops and bottoms up if you can. Safety pin to attach clothing sets securely with bottom garment hung on the backside of the shirt at the top of the hanger, so both pieces can be viewed without separating them.

Pants/Shorts/Skirts: Safety pin waist to top of hanger.  Safety pins should be closer together than the diagonal portion of the hanger is long, so that the item will not slide around the hanger.  Another option is to use dry clearner hangers with paper.  Pinning through the paper will keep pants/shorts/skirts from sliding around the hanger.

TIP: When hanging strappy items or items such as skirts or pants (items that can easily slide around on the hanger), use either dry cleaner hangers with the paper still attached or create a "tab" on either side of the top of the hanger with packing tape to pin the item/s through.  This will prevent the item/s from sliding around and bunching up on the hanger.

Onesies: including new-in-package, need to be hung.

Maternity: Please secure tops with safety pins to the hanger since they have a tendency to fall off.
All pants must be pinned at the waist to the top of the hangers so shoppers can see them easily.  Pants folded over hangers will not be accepted.  Maternity pants only may be hung on pant hangers.

Clothing/Hanging Items:
• Be picky! Look at your clothing items as if you were going to purchase them.
• No stained or damaged items will be accepted. 
• Clothing can be no older than five years old; Junior and Maternity no older than three years.
• Freshly launder your clothing items. The newer the item looks (and the better it smells), the better it will sell.
• Replace missing buttons, sew loose hems and seams, and clip loose threads.
• 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.

Socks, hats, mittens, accessories: Are best pinned together, not in bags.  For multiple pairs of socks, place in clear zip-top bag.  Secure all bags closed with packing tape.  Avoid using bags when possible.

Shoes: Fasten shoes together with zip ties. For shoes that do not have anywhere to zip tie, you may put the shoes in a clear self-seal bag. This is to be used as a last resort. We prefer no shoe boxes. However, if shoes are in the box, please place tag on shoes in case box gets separated.

Items requiring batteries: All toys, games, equipment, etc. that require batteries must have working batteries for the duration of the sale. If batteries are required to be replaced during the sale a $1/battery (AAA, AA) and $2/battery (all other sizes) will be charged.

Books, puzzles, video games:

Use clear, self-seal bags or clear cling wrap (saran wrap) to hold multiple items together.

Tie sets of books together with ribbon/string.

When tagging books, please attach your tag to the book with clear tape or blue 'painters' tape that can be removed without damaging the item. Please do not use masking or double sided tape.

Do not tape tags directly on wooden puzzles, which will tear stickers on puzzle.

Tape tag to the outside cover of books, games, and video games.  

High Value Items: If you would like to place high-priced items in our High Value Cabinet near Checkout, please see a volunteer at Drop Off for assistance.

*Note* JBF will pull any recalled, stain, worn, broken unacceptable items from our sales floor. Please check and double check your items before tagging and bringing them to the event. All items pulled from the floor will be availale for pick-up on October 1st.

Have questions? Please join our consignor Facebook page where you can ask questions of other moms and dads consigning with JBF Overland Park.

You can also email Stephanie at stephaniehyder@jbfsale.com with questions.

Large Items & Multiple Pieces

Large items: If you have a large item (think too big to carry to the Hold area) like a pack and play, changing table, train table, toy kitchen, etc. please bring your JBF tag (printed on white card stock) in hand to the sale.  We'll show you how to attach it to your item securely using our yellow claim tickets.  This makes it easier for our shoppers to buy your great items!

For items with mulitple pieces: If an 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.

Print 1 tag with the price and "1 of 3", for example.  Then create and print subsequent tags with $0 for the price and "2 of 3" and "3 of 3" (or however many pieces the items has). Attach one tag to each piece. This helps ensure everyone know what goes together and sells as a set!

Consignors Bringing 600 or More Items

*Please note that consignors bringing 600 or more items are required to work a 4-hour sorting shift on Sunday, September 30th.

This shift will include sorting ALL consignor items. A special shift is available in our volunteer schedule for you to sign up.

Note that this shift does not count towards an earlier shopping presale time nor additional percentage of your sales. In order to shop earlier and earn a higher percentage another volunteer shift will be required.

If you are unwilling or unable to work this sorting shift, a fee of $40 will be taken out of your check so that we can pay someone to work in your place.

As an alternative, consignors bringing more than 600 items who mark Donate on all their items can bypass the sorting requirement and not pay the fee.

Please contact Stephanie if you have any questions.

As a mom, I get it! Raising kids on a budget is tough…not to mention they grow out of things so fast!

That’s why we created JBF.  We help local families sell the items their kids no longer use and shop safely to re-stock their closets each season at a fraction of what it would cost paying retail.
It’s a win-win and why I love JBF…I know you will too!
