Spring is here, and Just Between Friends is back!
And you know what that means: It’s time to shop till you drop! (Or clear out your closets and turn your new or gently used baby, kid and maternity gear into cash!)
The City of Austin has temporarily banned public gatherings. Please stay home. The Free Fun in Austin calendar is only for live digital events at this time.
What’s Just Between Friends?
Just Between Friends is a HUGE children’s consignment event where bargain-savvy shoppers can save 50–90% off retail prices on quality brand-name items. Whether you need maternity clothes, baby gear, kids’ clothes or toys, children’s furniture or room decor, strollers or swings… Basically, no matter what you might need for your family, JBF is the event for you.
This spring’s JBF North Austin event is coming to Pflugerville’s Typhoon Texas (formerly Hawaiian Falls Waterpark—map) on March 31 and April 1, 2017, with a presale event on March 30. (See more event details including times, location and entry fees below.)
And JBF events aren’t just for shoppers, either—you can sell your own gear there, too. Consignors pay a $10 fee to sell their items and earn an average of over $300 at each JBF sale. If you’d like to be a consignor, you’ll earn 60% of your gross sales—or you can earn 70% by volunteering at the event! (This year, consignors who are short on time can also hire JBF’s Valet Taggers to tag their items for them.)
Details About Attending the Sale:
Want first crack at all the goodies? Attend the presale event on March 30. (There’s a $10 entry fee, unless you qualify for a FREE pass. Also note that kids and strollers are not allowed at the presale event, except infants in slings/carriers/caregivers’ arms.)
At the public sale on the 31st, you’ll pay just $3 at the door (or RSVP in advance to get a FREE pass!) to come browse through thousands of items. And entry is FREE for everyone at the 50%-off sale on April 1!
