Helping Lee’s Summit Families Turn Clutter Into Cash
February 16, 2013
Recent survey shows most families shopping habits have changed permanently since recession. As families still search for ways to be frugal, one mom is helping them do just that with her annual spring children’s consignment event.
Just Between Friends (JBF) is gearing up for its upcoming event
Feb. 16 – 19 from 10:00 a.m. to 7:00 p.m. at The Pavilion at John Knox Village.
This event helps families make money by “turning clutter into cash.” At the same time, families can typically save between 50 and 90 percent on everything they need to raise a family, from maternity to pre-teen.
JBF is currently accepting consignors for all three events who want to sell the new and gently used children’s and maternity items that their families have outgrown. They price and tag their own items using an easy, online bar code system. JBF does the rest of the work, handling all sales. Consignors earn 65 percent of the sales, 70 percent if they volunteer.
The money at JBF stays in the local community and most goes back into the pockets of local families. The first event in Lee’s Summit begins February 16, with a presale for volunteers, consignors and first time moms on February 15 at The Pavilion at John Knox Village.
Families who shop can find great bargains on everything from clothing, toys, electronics, books, baby equipment, furniture and much more. Consignment shopping has become a trend that is here to stay.
JBF has been featured on numerous national television shows including CBS Early Show, ABC News, Good Morning America, CNN, Headline News, Fox News, Inside Edition, CNBC’s The Big Idea, on yahoo.com, sheknows.com and Disney website, www.family.com.
