Consignor Registration will open Tuesday, August 7th!
Our consignors make 60% of their sales - more if they volunteer! They prepare and price their own items, drop them off a few days before the sale and then, from the comfort of their own home, watch their sales add up online! At the end of the sale, consignors choose to either pickup any unsold items or we can donate them to our charity partners, Sunrise of Pasco County and The Spring of Tampa Bay.
Then, no more than 2 weeks after the sale, consignors will receive a check for 60% of their sales (less a $10 consignor fee) - more if they volunteer - in the mail. Easy Peasy!
Consigning with JBF is a great way to make money, give back to the community and participate in a FUN event!
If this is your first time consigning, then welcome to the wonderful world of consigning with JBF where it is easy and fun! Take a look around our page and all the links for a "how to" of consigning with us.
If it's JBF related, you should be able to find it on the site. From information on what kind of items you can consign to how to tag them, this is your source for all things JBF!
However, should you have trouble locating the exact piece of information you are looking for, please feel free to email us and we can help guide you in the right direction.
Keeping your little ones safe is a top prioroity at JBF. We take recalls very seriously, and ask that our consignors do too.
It is required that you, the consignor, check all of your toys and baby equipment for recalls prior to drop-off. We will be double checking items as they come in, and any item found to be recalled will be pulled from the sales floor and returned to the seller. You can find a great deal of safety and recall information here, or check-out wemakeitsafer.com for easy searches from your home computer or mobile phone.
If you are bringing a recalled item that has been fixed by the manufacture, please add this information to the tag. Otherwise, we will err on the side of caution and assume the item has not been fixed and will pull it from the sales floor.
We appreciate your help in keeping the items on the JBF sales floor safe for all of the children in our community!

Did you know that there are seven Just Between Friends locations in Florida?
Since all of the locations use the centralized barcoding software, once you enter your items, you can sell them at any of Just Between Friends Locations. JBF is the BEST choice for your consignment needs!
If you would like to take your unsold items to another JBF location before/after the North Tampa sale, follow these instructions:
1. Register as a consignor for all sales you wish to participate in. All of your unsold inventory will automatically be transferred into the next sale's database!
We encourage all shoppers to test their items before they purchase them. Because of this, all items that you bring to the event must be in working order! If your items require batteries, please make sure that you have working batteries in them so that the item can be tested. You can find batteries for cheap at the Dollar Store! If we have to replace batteries at the event due to an item not working, the consignor will be charged $1 per battery - which means less money in your sales check. So be sure to test your items, clean them up, and make sure they are ready for shoppers to purchase!
All drop offs and pick ups will be at The Florida State Fairgrounds in the Special Events Center. Parking is free during these times. Please be sure to use the Orient Road Service Entrance!
