Clothing

We sell children's clothing Newborn through juniors sizes, as well as maternity sizes. Our Spring Sale is an ALL SEASON SALE.  

Be picky. Look at your clothing items as if you were going to purchase them. No stained or damaged items will be accepted.   Please freshly clean your clothing items. Replace missing buttons, sew loose hems and seams, and clip loose threads. Please button all buttons, snap all snaps, zip all zippers before you arrive at drop off. This will ensure that there are no defects in the clothing. The newer the item looks (and the better it smells), the better it will sell.


Package & Hang:  Hangers - Please hang clothes so the hanger hook points to the left (like a question mark).  Hang size 0-6 clothing on child-size hangers and sizes 7-14 and maternity clothing on adult-size hangers. Clothing that falls off the hanger onto the floor does not sell well. Clothing Sets - Sets tend to sell better (under size 6) so match things up if you can. All garments should be hung with the hanger hook pointing left (hanger should resemble a question mark when looking at the front of item). Safety pin or use a tagging gun to attach clothing sets securely with bottom garment hung on the backside of the shirt, so both pieces can be viewed without separating them.  Pants/Shorts - Pant-clip hangers are great but if you use a standard hanger, simply use your tagging gun to attach pants to the top part of the hanger so the garment will not slide. Onesies, socks, tights, hats and infant mittens need to be in a clear zip-lock bag (you may group multiple items in one bag). Please be sure to label your tag well so that customers know if the items are short-sleeve onesies or long-sleeve onesies.

Price:  Hanging Clothing - Put outfits/set together to price for at least $3.00; Start at $3 for basic, generic brand 0-24mo outfit. Add $1 each for larger size, name brand, formal, and heavy/winter.  Non-hanging Clothing - Put sets together to price for at least $3.00, but okay to price for less (i.e., 6 pair of socks for $1.50).


Tag:  Clothing on Hangers - Attach tag with a tagging gun or safety pin to the label of shirt or upper right front of pants. Insert the gun in a label or inside seam NOT through part of the clothing (to avoid making a hole or tear in the clothing). Also, pull on the tag to make sure it is properly secured and will not come off easily. Please make sure consignor tags are pulled out of the clothing so they are easily visible to the customers.  Non-Hanging Clothing - Please use tagging gun or safety pins to attach tags to onesies, socks, tights, infant mittens, and accessories. Be sure to also attach multiple pieces together. Then put these items into clear zip-lock bags. Please do not tape bags closed - shoppers want to feel and inspect items before purchasing.

Safety & Recalls

We place great emphasis on the safety of our shoppers and consignors. That is why we are the only franchisor in the industry to employ a Safety and Recall Specialist. Our specialist works closely with the Consumer Product Safety Commission to bring the latest and most accurate information to you.

Keeping Our Kids Safe
It is the goal of Just Between Friends to offer only the best items at all of our consignment sales events.

In light of the alarming number of recent recalls, we at Just Between Friends find it necessary to help parents stay informed about product safety. Below you will find links to important product safety websites. We also have a list of recalled items at all of our consignment sales events. We will update these recall lists by the first of every month. We welcome any additional recall information that you may have.
