You have a choice! You may donate your unsold items to our charity partner OR pick up your items. If you donate, you will be helping our local community + you will receive a tax slip with your check. 

Pick up is totally painless as ALL items are sorted for you (how cool is that?).  You will be in and out within 15-30 minutes.

Baby Equipment/Kid's Furniture

Gather:  Exersaucers, swings, high chairs, changing tables, strollers, bath seats, baby walkers - You get the point!  These items sell GREAT!  We also accept toddler and youth twin beds, dressers and youth desks.

Package: Items should be assembled at the event to ensure that all of the parts are present and functioning. 

Tag:  Attach tag to item with a safety pin or clear packing tape.  Do not use tape on fabric or delicate items.  You can punch a hole in the top of the tag and secure the tag with ribbon or zip ties.  Place a piece of tape on tag before punching a hole. This will reinforce the tag so that it is not torn off your item.

We are unable to accept bedding and blankets (including receiving blankets, swaddlers, crib bedding, toddler bedding, and comforters) at the Norman event.

Here is what we can accept-
Gather: 
Bassinet, crib, toddler,and  twin sheets.  Please be selective when selling burp cloths, towels and fabric items. New and barely used items sell best. Check carefully for stains.  Children's lamps, clocks, pictures and room decor sell great.

Package:  Put sheet sets together in original packaging or in CLEAR plastic bags. Arrange sets inside bag so that shoppers can see all of the items. Secure the bag so that items do not get separated.  Safety pin or zip tie multiple pieces together to ensure they are not separated.

Tag:  If room decor or sheets are in a plastic bag, attach tag securely with packaging tape to the inside of the bag where it can be seen. Tape the bag shut.  Attach tag to fabric items with a safety pin.  Do not use tape on fabric or delicate items. You can punch a hole in the top of the tag and secure the tag with ribbon or zip ties.  Place a piece of tape on tag before punching a hole.

Package: Use clear zip-loc bags or cling wrap (saran wrap) to hold items together.  DO NOT use tape on puzzles or items that could tear.  Please DO NOT use ribbon to bundle books together as they become separated easily.  Use a clear bag taped securely, for mutiple books.  Or better yet, price books individually.

Button all buttons, snap all snaps, zip all zippers before you arrive at drop off.  Clothing should be new styles purchased within the last 5 years.

Package: Multi piece clothing items must be safety pinned together through ALL pieces (don't use a tag gun for this). If selling item with an accessory such as a hat/pair of socks, safety pin accessory securely to clothing item.

Price:  The most successful JBF Consignors practice “Shopper-Focused Pricing".  You’re a smart bargain shopper - simply ask, “What price would make me buy this item without hesitation...and brag about it later to a friend?”
We DO NOT have a minimum price rule at the Norman JBF sale. We encourage you to price your items competitively and use our pricing guide as a resource.

Tag Location: Attach tag with a tag gun to the size label in top area  or safety pin to the upper right side. Insert the gun in a size label or inside seam in neck area. Do NOT use tag guns through part of the clothing as this will making a hole and permanently damage your clothing.
PULL on the tag to make sure it is properly secured and will not fall off.  You may also safety pin tag to the upper right side of garment, as you are looking at the item.

DO NOT place tag in arm pit seam or through shirt sleeve seam or bottom of garment, as this makes it difficult for us to scan and sort.  See link above for helpful pictures of tag gun do's and don'ts.

Make sure tags are visible - not tucked inside clothing.

Sort: all clothing by size and gender for an easier drop off.  Rubberband sizes together when transporting.

Note: Sets sell well in smaller sizes. IMPORTANT: Make sure that the sizes are the same (double check!!) and it is best to match the same brand too.

Hanger/Tag Gun/Safety-Pin 101


Hangers must be PLASTIC tube, department store, or pant clip hangers. NO WIRE hangers.

The hanger hook should point to the left like a question mark
when looking at it.  Hang size 0-6 clothing on child-size hangers and sizes 7-18 on adult-size hangers. Old Navy and department stores are great places to get free hangers (they throw away hangers daily!).  WalMart & Dollar stores sell child-size plastic tube hangers at a great price.

Hanging pants: attach safety pins through the middle of the waist band and to the TOP part of the hanger to ensure that pant will not slide. If you can find them, the best hangers to use for pants are clip hangers like the ones used in department stores. Save them when you shop!

Hanging sets: Most sets can be placed on one hanger. Safety pin thru both clothing pieces AND around the top of hanger (this will prevent pants from weighing down the shirt and causing a possible tear). DO NOT safety pin pants to the bottom of the shirt OR bottom of the hanger. Pants should hang on the outside of the shirt, so both pieces can be viewed easlily. If multiple hangers are needed use rubberbands to attach hangers together.

Remember: Clothing is sold on hangers, so hangers will not be returned to consignor. Unsold clothing will be returned on hangers.

Tag Gun: If you are interested in ordering a tag gun, you can find great deals on ebay. Dennison and Arrow seem to be good brands (get the 2" size barbs). Remember to be very careful when using a tag gun and tag through the size tag or inside lip in the neck area, since we will not accept clothing with holes. Helpful pictures of tag gun do's and don'ts.

Safety pins: Please use 1" or larger safety pins: NO straight pins or small gold safety pins.

See links below to purchase tag guns, safety pins and rolling racks

Perfect Consignors


Perfect Consignor LIST

We want to reward our consignors who consistently follow the JBF guidelines and bring great items to the sale.

If you have less than three stained, damaged, or unacceptable items pulled at drop off or during the sale, your name will be added to our Perfect Consignor List. This saves you time at Drop Off - we will do a quick spot check of your items rather than inspecting each item - yipee!

IMPORTANT NOTE: Perfect Consignor status will be lost if a RECALLED item is consigned. Remember to check ALL of your items for recalls before preparing them for the sale. There is a great "recall search" tool on the JBF tagging site.

ANOTHER IMPORTANT NOTE: Perfect Consignor status will be lost if an item missing pieces or not in perfect working order is consigned. Please include batteries and test everything while preparing items for the sale.

REMEMBER: Perfect Consignor status is earned each sale. Spend extra time inspecting items at home so that you continue to earn your perfect status each event!

We appreciate those consignors who spend the extra time at home ensuring that their items are stain free and tagged correctly!

2.  Fill out the Google Form HERE
3.  Drop off your seasonally appropriate clothing items on hangers as well as your other "stuff" like toys, baby gear, games, books, puzzles and whatever else you can find to your tagger. Provide this completed waiver to your tagger.
4. Your tagger will price, store, bring items to the sale, and place items on to the sales floor. Pick up of unsold items is the responsibility of each consignor.
 

In order to quaify, you must answer "YES" to these 2 questions:

  •     Do you have at least 50 items?
  •     Are 80% of your items name brand?
        (Less than 20% of your items are from Target/Walmart.)

If you fit the bill, complete this form and a Valet Tagger will contact you. You will earn 45% of the sale price of your items less a $10 fee. If you help at the event for one 4-hour shift, you will earn 50% less the same $10 fee. We'll also give you presale passes for you and a guest which will be held at the door with our greeter.

Hello, I'm Kathy and I organize the JBF sale in Norman as well as OKC and Edmond. I started this event in my living room 16 years ago, since that time we have helped thousands of families just like you clean up and cash in with JBF.

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 a community event where local families can sell the items their kids no longer use, and restock their closets each season! It's a win-win and why I love JBF...I know you will too!
