ITEM DROP OFF - BEFORE EVENT

TBD | 12:00 pm - 6:00 pm        
Everyone welcome and no appointment required
___________________________________________


HERE'S HOW IT WORKS:
1. Prep, price and organize your stuff at home (see details below) and bring to the Expo Idaho Fairgrounds.

2. Register as a consignor, sign the electronic waiver (sent to you after you register),  Car Seat Waiver and Crib Waiver (if applicable) and one  item with a barcode into the building.

3. Unload your items through the double doors at the front of the building, move and park your car. 

4. Check in and we have rolling racks available on a first come, first serve basis to transport your items into the building. Gather your items from your car.  It is highly recommended if you have a wagon to bring it to help you put your items out.

5. Following inspection, you will place all items on the sales floor, so please plan to allow 20-60 minutes for this process depending on how many items you are selling. Slow times for drop off are between 2-4p. It is highly recommended that clothing is sorted by gender and size and like toys grouped together.

6. Watch your sales grow with our real-time updates. It is seriously better than winning the lottery!

Express Drop Off: If you're in a hurry, we can help. All of your items must be tagged to be reduced (will go to 50% off on Saturday night and Sunday) and tagged to donate.  You can skip inspection too!  You simply unload your vehicle and we do the rest. 

Find more items to sell?  You can bring them to the mid-sale drop off and still make the sale!

Mid-Sale Drop Off:  TBD | 6:00-7:00 pm for everything EXCEPT hanging clothing.

UNSOLD ITEM PICK UP- AFTER EVENT

If you have any unsold items you will need to attend PICK UP to claim them. Items will be sorted by Consignor # for your convenience.

At 7:01 pm remaining items are donated to our charity partner, The Arc. Sorry, no exceptions!

*If you marked DONATE on your items, those will be pulled and donated on your behalf and you do NOT need to pick up.

Pick up for all Consignors
Sunday @ 6:00 - 7:00 pm

Gather your Items

Every room in your home has items that your children are no longer wearing or using. It's time to gather everything and to declutter your home. 

Gather items and supplies:  

Here is a link to get supplies through amazon:

https://www.amazon.com/shop/boisejbf

Here's where to check:

  • Attic or Basement Storage
  • Kid's Bedroom
  • Mom's Closet
  • Linen Closet
  • Bathroom
  • Living Room
  • Mud Room or Hall Closet
  • Kitchen
  • Playroom
  • Garage
  • Outside

Our wide selection of items is one of the TOP 5 reasons why shoppers love JBF!

Organize in 30 min or less

Once you have a pile of things your kids are no longer using it's time to decide if you should KEEP, SELL or TOSS each item.

Place each item into one of three tubs labeled - KEEP, SELL or TOSS (printable labels)

  • KEEP - items that you aren't ready to part with yet. Maybe you're thinking about having another child or maybe the item is too sentimental.  That's ok! Keep it.
  • SELL - Items you want to sell
  • TOSS - Items that don't meet JBF Standards.

When you're done set aside the KEEP tub and revisit it later. Take the TOSS tub to your local charity, repurpose the items or throw them away. The SELL tub is now ready to tag and prep.

Shopper - Focused Pricing

Selling at JBF lets you be in control of the price of each item. You also decide if it goes half price on the last day of the sale. And if the item doesn't sell, you can either donate the item or pick it up.

 

Successful sellers at JBF practice "Shopper-focused Pricing". Ask yourself, "What price would make me buy this item and brag about it to a friend?"

Charge MORE for:

  • New with Tags
  • "Dressy" items
  • Items in Original Packaging
  • Large Items
  • Popular Toys

Charge LESS for:

  • T-shirts
  • Play Clothes
  • Infant Items
  • Maternity Clothing
  • Junior Clothing

To sell more items we recommend that you let your items reduce during our discount days.

Prepping Your Items

When you are ready to create your tags, Log into your JBF Profile and click on the TAGGING icon on the top right corner of the page.

Select CREATE TAGS and then grab your first item and start.

Select the Category > Choose the Size > Write a detailed description > Select the Price > Choose if you want it to REDUCE > Choose if you want it to DONATE > Write in the Quantity

Save OFTEN.

Drop Off Your Items

Bring your tagged and prepped items to the Expo Idaho at the Idaho Fairgrounds in Garden City.

  • Drive to the doors behind the building and unload your items directly into our sales floor. 
  • You'll be responsible to place all of your items on the sales floor in their designated places.
  • Team Members will be on hand to assist you so you'll know where everything goes.
  • Plan between 45-60 mins to Drop off your items.  Plan extra time if you have children with you.

WHAT YOU NEED: TAGGING SUPPLIES

Tagging is easier when you have all of the supplies at your finger tips. Chances are, you have most of these items already. Now's the time to gather them to create your JBF toolbox.

Your basic toolbox includes: hangers, safety pins, cardstock, tape, zip lock bags, ribbon.

I understand all too well how quickly kids grow. So we create a community marketplace where families can sell all the things their kids are no longer using, and can buy what they need at 50-90% off retail.

We invite you to participate at our next event. You can sell with us or you can shop with us. Either way, JBF gives you a solution to keep up with your growing family.
