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. With items grouped by type rather than by seller (as at a traditional mom2mom sale), a consignment sale is more convenient for shoppers. Clothing is arranged on racks by gender and size. Baby gear, toys, and even books each have their own section.

Strollers and children are welcome at the regular sale. The presale is adults only (except for babies worn in a carrier).
A Just Between Friends sale makes shopping easy. Clothing is grouped together by gender and size and placed on racks. There are also separate areas for toys, baby equipment, and other items. 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.
IKEA bags are available to shoppers at a Just Between Friends sale to hold their items while shopping. There is also a hold table available where items can be held for up to an hour. Just Between Friends prefers cash payments. However, credit cards (Master Card, Visa, and Discover) are accepted.

You can shop with confidence since items are quality checked when the consignors drop them off.
