Just Between Friends, Kids Consignment Sale, Nov 21-23, 2014 {Giveaway} #ilovejbf

We’ve now reached the stage where we are done having kids.

Our family is complete and now it’s time to offload all of the clothes that the littles have outgrown and that we don’t want to keep for the memory box.

The pace in which kids grow these days, their clothes really don’t get a lot of wear to them. They get outgrown before holes appear, so why not let them have another kick at the can by someone else?

Clothing, especially footwear, can really add up when you have multiple kids. A good pair of shoes can fetch around $30 and each kid needs several pairs. I’ve been scouring Facebook Swap and Shop Groups for gear for our kids and have also posted my own items for sale, but am having little luck getting rid of our stuff.

Just Between Friends

Just Between Friends is leading infant, children and maternity consignment sales event. They are all about families helping other families! We recycle the items our kids no longer need by re-selling the clothing, toys, furniture, and equipment that our kids have outgrown. This means huge savings for families who love bargains! Items at the JBF sale are inspected for quality and meet all Health Canada safety regulations. Find designer and boutique brands priced 50-90% off retail. It is a great opportunity to support the wonderful moms and parents of the community, so get involved! Unsold items benefit local charities, Aunt Leah’s Place, Crabtree Corner and BabyGoRound. Families looking to recycle items your kids have outgrown, it’s not too late to sign up and consign! Sell your items and earn up to 70% cash, just in time for the holidays.

There’s an exclusive pre-sale for first time parents, grandparents and teachers, details at www.vancouverbc.jbfsale.com.

#JustBetweenFriends, a new way to buy and sell used children’s goods. #YMCCommunity

Just Between Friends

Kids grow like weeds.

Growing kid

When you first bring them home from the hospital, you and your wee one are spoiled by the generous gifts that your friends and families give you.

This is pretty awesome when you think of the cost of baby gear.

Cribs, change tables, nursery decor and bedding, rocking chairs, breast pumps, the list goes on. Then as they get bigger, their needs change. You now need toys, bouncy chairs, stationary play centres (Exersaucers), car seats, etc.

Baby gear

I haven’t even delved into clothing yet. Did I mention kids grow like weeds?

Diaper shirts, socks, pants, pj’s, hats, shirts, sweaters, jackets, rompers, dresses, snowsuits, sleep sacks, buntings, shoes. Good grief Charlie Brown!

With your first kid, chances are you had to get everything new and weren’t too interested in getting hand-me-downs, buying used from craigslist, consignment stores, or Buy, Sell, Swap groups on Facebook. But once #2 arrives, you are more than happy to shop away ’til your heart’s content using these other options. You can score some pretty awesome deals and saving money is key if you are a single income home and making you hard earned dollar stretch is paramount.

Just Between Friends is the leading infant, children and maternity consignment sales event. It’s an annual Spring and Fall event happening in Vancouver.  Huge savings for families who love bargains on clothing, toys, infant equipment and furniture!  Find designer and boutique brands priced 50-90% off retail. Plus, most items go half price on Sunday.  Items are inspected for quality and meet all Health Canada safety regulations.

Families looking to recycle items your kids have outgrown, it’s not too late to sign up and consign! Sell your items and earn up to 70% cash. JBF in part benefits our charity Aunt Leah’s Place.

There’s an exclusive pre-sale for first time parents, grandparents and teachers, details at www.vancouverbc.jbfsale.com
