JBF Consignment Sale - Milwaukee County

Just Between Friends (JBF), the leading children’s and maternity consignment event, is announcing a special presale for military families, first-time moms, and teachers on Saturday, April 18, from 6-9 pm, a day ahead of the regular JBF sale days, April 19-25, at the Wisconsin Exposition Center at Wisconsin State Fair Park. Presale attendees should register at Eventbrite.com or go to jbfsale.com for details. JBF’s Milwaukee County regular sale will be open to the public Sunday through Wednesday, April 19-22, from 10 a.m. to 7 p.m.; Thursday, April 23, from 10 a.m. to 5 p.m.; Friday, April 24, 10 a.m. to 7 p.m.; and Saturday, April 25, 9 a.m. to 3 p.m. On Sunday, a $3 admission fee will be charged, and on the remaining sale days, admission is free.? JBF sales offer “gently loved” and “new” children’s clothing in sizes 0 to 18, maternity clothes in sizes XS to plus, children’s shoes in sizes infant to 6, as well as toys, board and electronic games, DVDs, and books. All clothing items and shoes are inspected before the event for current fashion, stains, and tears, and strollers are checked for safety and recall warnings. Items will be organized like a children’s store, where everything is divided by gender and size. Each event features new and different items. The spring sales will feature spring and summer clothing items. As a special service to area families, the JBF Milwaukee County sale will help people with Graco Alano, Passage, or Spree strollers and/or travel systems that were recalled in 2010 because of potential danger. Persons with any of those models may exchange each for a $25.00 JBF gift card to use at the JBF sale event. JBF will be returning the strollers to Graco, and they will be destroyed. Melissa Monsoor, co-organizer of the Milwaukee County sale pointed out, “We will have everything from maternity clothing to wipe warmers to the latest fashions from Justice or Gymboree to Fisher Price and Little Tikes playground toys, along with other high interest toys and children’s electronics.” JBF sales utilize an exclusive, free barcode system for tagging items, tracking daily sales, and managing an accurate, itemized list of any unsold, fashionable, and desirable items that are then donated on behalf of JBF and the consignors to organizations, including the Salvation Army, for area families in need. Just Between Friends serves more than 260,000 American families in 22 states and provides an opportunity for families to recycle their kids’ clothing and toys. Wisconsin currently offers six JBF sales events with each independently operated. The Salvation Army is an international movement located in over 100 countries around the world. It has been serving communities in the Greater Milwaukee area for over 100 years. ? For more information on the upcoming sale, visit www.jbfsale.com.
