If you aren’t familiar with JBF, this a huge consignment sale that spans 35,000 square feet of floor space and is full of amazing bargains — clothes for babies, children and teens, baby and children’s products, bedding, and tons of books and toys.

Founders Beth and Tracy go out of their way to make the shopping experience a pleasant one. All clothes and toys must pass inspection and are then cleaned and tagged with bar codes and prices set by the consigners. If you volunteer or consign, you are allowed to shop early to get first pick of all the great bargains.

Tracy shared with the PSMM members a little bit about how she and Beth got started with JBF and how it has evolved.

Each attendee was provided with a $25 gift certificate with which to experience the sale. Those who knew the drill came prepared with laundry baskets to fill. Some who were not seasoned consignment shoppers were skeptical at first but found themselves soon filling their arms with amazing deals. We all stocked UP! Many of us left with bags full to overflowing.

This was what my rack looked like at check out. I was surprised and pleased to find a good selection of clothes for all ages — even my 12-year-old son!
