About Just Between Friends

Just Between Friends was started in a Tulsa, OK living room in 1997. Since then, it has grown into a national organization with franchises in 28 states across the country. The first Ann Arbor Just Between Friends sale will be held in September 2015. Local families can participate as consignors, shoppers, or both.

Just Between Friends is a consignment style sale. Consignors price and tag clothing before the sale and drop it off the day before the sale. They do not have to be present at the sale. A consignment sale is convenient for shoppers as items are grouped by type rather than by seller (as at a traditional mom2mom sale). Clothing is arranged on racks by gender and size.

Consignors at a Just Between Friends Sale

Being a consignor at a Just Between Friends sale is easy. After registering for the sale, you will have access to their online system for creating tags and an item list. Consignors will tag their items at home and then deliver them to the sale on Friday, September 18. Drop-off times will be assigned based on your last name. There is also a Thursday night drop-off option for working parents. Consignors will receive 60% of the sale price of their items. They can increase the percentage to 70% by volunteering to work a 4 hour shift.

Don’t have time to price and tag all of your items? The Valet Consignor option may be right for you. Your items will be priced and tagged for you. Of course, there is a price to pay for this convenience. There is a $15 flat fee for up to 250 items and valet consignors receive 50% instead of the 60% that standard consignors receive. Valet Consignors can receive an additional 5% (55%) by volunteering to work a 4 hour shift.

A Just Between Friends sale is designed to help you clear out your house. You can choose to offer your items at a 50% discount on the second day of the sale (Sunday) to encourage sales. You can also elect to donate unsold items so that you do not need to return them to your house.

The fall sale will accept clothing (baby through size 16) for fall and winter, maternity clothing for all seasons, swimsuits, and shoes and boots. They will also accept Halloween costumes, coats, and jackets. Other items include toys, outdoor play equipment, baby gear, books, music, DVDs, and more. Please check their complete list of what they will and will not accept. Items will be quality checked at the sale, so be sure to only bring clothing and other items in good condition.just-between-friends-mom2mom-consignment-shopper3

A Just Between Friends sale is easy to shop at since clothing is grouped together by gender and size and placed on racks. Toys, baby equipment, and other items are also grouped together. Items are quality-checked so you can be confident in what you are buying. This type of sale is much easier than shopping a traditional Mom2Mom sale where you have to visit each seller’s table to determine which types of items they have available.  Items are typically available at 50-90% off of retail prices.

Shoppers at a Just Between Friends sale are provided with IKEA bags while shopping to hold their items. There is also a hold table available where items can be held for up to an hour. While cash is the preferred method of payment, credit cards (Master Card, Visa, and Discover) are accepted.
