About Just Between Friends

Just Between Friends 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 was in September 2015. They have held sales every fall and spring since then. The Spring 2017 sale is May 6-7, 2017. 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. Baby gear, toys, and even books each have their own section.

Just Between Friends Ann Arbor - Consignor Steps

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, May 5. 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. By volunteering to work a 4 hour shift, consignors can increase their earnings to 70%.

Just Between Friends Ann Arbor - Toy Sale

A Just Between Friends sale helps you clear out your house. There is an option to offer your items at a 50% discount on the second day of the sale (Sunday). This encourages sales so that you have less items to bring home. You can also elect to donate unsold items so that you do not need to pick them up and return them to your house. Leftover items from the Spring 2017 Sale will be donated to their charity partners:

  • Hearts Community Service in Chelsea
  • Ann Arbor PTO Thrift Shop
  • Michigan Foster Closet of Washtenaw County
Items Accepted at Spring Just Between Friends Sale

The spring sale will accept clothing (baby through size 16) for spring and summer, maternity clothing for all seasons, swimsuits, and shoes. They will also accept dress-up clothes, sports gear, and more. Other items include baby furniture (except cribs), 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.

Valet Tagging Option

Don’t have time to price and tag all of your items? The Valet Tagging 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 $20 flat fee 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. Unfortunately the Valet Tagging option is full for the 2017 Spring Sale. If you want to consider it for Fall 2017, check their website after the Spring 2017 Sale for fall information.

Shopping at Just Between Friends

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.
