This service was designed for those moms who don't mind tagging their own items but have a hard time dropping them off.
Make an appointment, bring your items and waiver inside to the designated Express Drop Off Table and walk away. No standing in line for inspections or putting your items away. This process will take you about 10 minutes. Appointments are in 30 minute incriments to reduce the likelihood of drop offs running into one another and delaying the process. The fee for this service comes directly out of your check, so no out-of-pocket cost, just convenience!
Express Drop-Off Fees:
Up to 200 items-$20
Item counts for fees come from the number of tags you have in your myjbftags.com account. So if you have old or sold tags, delete them so you’ll have an accurate number. We can show you how if you need help.
Contact us if you have any other questions regarding this service. We only have 20 Express Drop-Off spaces available, so if you know you want to participate, schedule your appointment ASAP. Click here to complete our online Express Drop Off Form and reserve your spot!
Remember to print your tags on WHITE card stock paper!
What to Sell This Spring
Kids' Spring & Summer clothing items are accepted at the Spring event (sizes infant through teen)!
Toys, games, books, puzzles, and more!
Current Maternity clothing items for all seasons!
Kids' Spring & Summer shoes and sandals in excellent condition! Flip flops will only be accepted if they look BRAND NEW.
These Items Sell BEST:
Clean & Complete
Generally, items in good condition should be priced at approximately 30%-75% off full retail price. For larger items, you can get an idea about the current market value by searching for the item on Amazon, eBay or Craigslist.
Items that are new with tags, popular brands, and items that have barely been worn or used may sell in a higher price range.
If you have several less expensive items, we recommend that you group similar items together to sell for $3.00 or more. This saves you time and effort with tagging!
CLICK HERE to download our Pricing Guide with more details and a list of specific recommendations for pricing.
Descriptive Tags: Within myjbftags, you'll type in a description about each item. Be specific and concise to ensure the description fits on the printed tag! In the event that the tag becomes separated from the item at the sale, a thorough description will help us find a "match". Words or phrases that positively describe the item are helpful in selling it ~ such as: brand new, worn a few times, great Holiday outfit, fabulous for church, etc. Brand names are also great eye catchers!
Donate (optional): Blessing others has never been easier! You can choose to donate all, a few, or none at the touch of a button, within the Tagging System! Just keep in mind, any items not picked up during consignor pick up time will be donated. You will receive a tax-deduction form with your check in the mail about 2 weeks after the completion of the sale.
Printing Your Tags: In the tagging system, select the "print tags (alternate)" option to open a 'pdf' file to print your tags 6 to a page. Print your tags on white card stock paper only. If you would like to keep your tags in order when cutting, please be aware that they print in order of top row left to right and then bottom row left to right.
