Shopping & Saving with Just Between Friends

We are happy to share with you about our newest partner at Just Between Friends and all of their upcoming sales! If you haven’t been to a JBF sale before, make sure to read on – these are sales you don’t want to miss!

SELL AND SAVE AT JBF White Bear Lake and Blaine!

One of the best seasons of the year has arrived! It’s Just Between Friends sale time in the North Metro with the White Bear Lake sale happening this week – May 20-22 and in Blaine June 17-19.

It’s no secret that children’s consignment sales can make and save you money, but JBF in the North Metro is by far a mom’s favorite. There are amazing quality clothes and toys for a fraction of what you would pay in retail – both gently loved in the best condition and new at wholesale or below prices.

You can stock up and save on everything they need from newborn to teen, plus maternity! The sale is absolutely huge. Both events take place at sports centers, which have plenty of space to take care of your spring, summer and fall shopping lists, as well as any birthday or special occasion gifts with their assortment of new items as well. JBF’s huge sale has toys, baby gear, clothes and anything else you could want for your kids.

Tips for Shopping:

  • Comfy shoes and bring a friend!
  • Your JBF list:
    • Children’s clothing sizes (current and soon to be) – think hot summer days and cool nights
    • Shoe sizes (some moms trace their children’s current foot and cut out a replica to check sizing J)
    • New mamas- click here for a great JBF list- otherwise take stock in what you have and your baby shower lists and gifts. From their create your own New Mama JBF List
    • Upcoming birthdays and events – both gently loved and the assortment of wholesale new items like Melissa and Doug make great gifts
    • Once your list is made- indicate priorities so you visit those areas first.
  • Admission for the first day of the sale is $2 admission, or show them this post at the door for free admission. Consider bringing a canned or non-perishable food item for the local food shelves in lieu of admission as well
  • Grab an Ikea bag or a shopping cart (shopping carts are limited- but children’s strollers are allowed!)
  • Utilize the hold area if you have a large item to buy or your bags fill up. It is quick and easy- just let the team know, they will label your items and give you a lanyard with your number on it for easy check-out.
  • Take your time- there is a lot to be seen and deals to be found. If you grabbed something you changed your mind about- just place it on the return rack or give it to a JBF team member.
  • Plan at least 2 trips! These 2 JBF sales take in new items daily- so you never know what you may find. Also, the Half-Price sale starts on Saturday night at 6pm and then is all day Sunday on items without stars.
  • Spread the word! Tell your friends, family, etc. JBF is just too good not to share.

Presale Offerings

JBF offers pre-sale for many groups of people – ranging from first-time moms to grandparents to military veterans. You’ll definitely want to check into this as you may qualify – and then you get to see the sale before anyone else!

Selling your items through JBF is easy-peasy, too! Don’t stress yourself out by hosting a garage sale. Clean out your closets and let us do the hard work.
