Valet Tagging Services

Want to enjoy all the benefits of consigning with Northern NV's largest consignment event, but are simply short on time? Not to worry, JBF will do it for you with our Valet Tagging Service!

Here is what one of our Valet Consignors had to say:

"I used the valet service and it was amazing. I had to do next to nothing and made over $100. The valet service is very well organized and easy to use. I'd recommend it to anyone who wants to consign but is overwhelmed by the process or just doesn't have time." - Anna

Valet Registration is now open!

Team Member Information

Team Members MAKE JBF GO, Volunteer Registration is OPEN!

Just Between Friends is run 100% by moms and dads like you and, simply put, we love and need YOU! For this reason, we reward our helpers.

  • As a Team Member (4hr minimum) you'll earn 70% of your sales AND a presale pass to shop EARLY (with ONE guest)!
  • The more you help, the earlier you shop the biggest and best selection of items at the sale!

How Does It Work?
Sign up to be a volunteer a minimum of 4 hours. 
Earn 70% of your sales.
The more shifts you work, the earlier you shop the presale on Friday.


Shifts are available in 4-hour increments, with a few 2-hour shifts reserved for our nursing mothers. The longer you help, the earlier you get to shop! The earlier you shop, the more merchandise and bargains to be had!

Pregnant or have health limitations?
Many of the tasks can be done sitting down. If you're not able to make it we'll happily welcome your husband, brother, father, mother, sister, wife as a team member, and you'll still get the credit! Or work together and earn double the credits!

Lend Your Husband!
If you can't work yourself, we'll happily welcome your husband, brother or father!
Our most important "muscle shifts" are:
Tuesday, 9:00am-12:00pm
Sunday, 5:00pm-9:00pm

Many couples work together so they in turn can shop the Presale together. Or, combine their hours onto yours and jump to an earlier shopping time.

Have a business you want to promote?

As a family business we understand the value of promoting within our community. Let us help you promote your family friendly business.

If you have a business or service that caters to children, families, moms, expectant moms or parents-to-be, partnering with JBF is a great way to reach your audience!
More than 2,500 shoppers walk through our doors each event. Affordable and effective, there are several ways you can participate:

Vendor Table: You're the best marketing tool for your business, and a vendor table allows you to work your magic in front of thousands of moms and families. Vendor space is offered for the full three days at $200. You do not have to staff your space the entire time, however, we do require your table to be set up for the duration of the event. We'll even link to your Web site, if you offer the same to us.

Partner: If you have ideas to help us promote our upcoming JBF Event through your business, we are willing to explore any cross-promotion options to offset your cost of advertising through us. Contact us to let us know your ideas.

Vendor Promos: Give us a flyer or business card and we'll put it in all the shopper bags at the registers.

 

Contact me at vickidame@jbfsale.com for more information or register here to reserve your space.

* PLEASE NOTE: Vendor space is limited. Spaces are given on a first come first served basis following an approval process and receipt of payment. Vendors in direct competition with the sale will not be accepted. Only one vendor per type, i.e. Scentsy, Lularoe, doTerra, etc.

All large items will be inspected and checked for recalls, items that are not accepted or pulled from the floor will be returned to you after inspection or at pick up.

A. We have drop off times available on Wednesday and Thursday of the sales week.

Q. Will I know what items have sold?
A. By using the online barcode tagging system at www.myjbftags.com you will have a record of all your items sold. There is an occasional tag that must be hand entered due to a bad barcode or printing quality issue. These items do not appear on the online sales report, but are included in your check.

Q. Where do I find safety pins and child sized hangers?
A. You can get hangers from Target or Walmart. We suggest that you try to use hangers that are normal width of a clothing bar and avoid using wire hangers. You can buy safety pins from us at a discounted rate that are of a superior quality!

Q. What size hangers do I need?
A.  Please put clothing sized 6 and smaller on child sized hangers if possible so the garments do not get all stretched out. Larger sizes fit well on adult hangers. Note that we don't like wire hangers, and will ask you to phase out of them. 

Q. If I consign my items, do I have to stay during the sale?
A. No. Consignors drop off their items and that's it! You do not have to come back unless you are picking your items up on Sunday between 7-8pm. (Don't forget to come shop the presales AND if you join our team you shop earlier PLUS get extra money from your sales!).

Q. What items are you taking?
A. We accept anything and everything (child, family, maternity related) in gently used condition from baby to teen, plus Maternity too!

Q: What sells the best?
A: Large items and toys!!! Very few of our large items and toys are left at the end of our events.

Q: Are you an all seasons sale?
A: YES! This means you can bring your clothing no matter what season it is for, but always remember that things like Halloween costumes and attire, Christmas attire and Easter attire sell best when they are at the sale leading into the Holiday! If you try to save your winter clothing, such as snow suits and boots, for our Fall Sale or your tank tops for the Spring sale, you are more likely to sell them at full price.

Q. What about shoes?
A. Shoes are allowed, but please bring only your best shoes up to Big Kids size 7.
Q. What about stuffed animals?
A. We only accept name brand character or battery operated stuffed animals (lights, sound, movement). Working batteries are a MUST. Think Disney, Build a Bear etc.

Q. What is the Mommy Mart?
A. We are eliminating Mommy Mart.

Q. What NOT to bring?
A. We do not accept adult novels or videos, R rated games, movies or CD's (or obviously inappropriate movies, games or CD's), Queen size or above bedding, used appliances or TVs.

Q: Do I have to volunteer as a Consignor?
A: No, unless you bring more than 500 items to the sale then you will be required to work our sort shift on Sunday.

Q: Do you allow Barters?
A: Sometimes, depending on each event's needs.  Item's that we are typically looking for are a predetermined meal bought, paid for and delivered at a specific time, bottled water, snacks, stamps, and more! We also are always looking for services and opportunities for media or advertising options. These barters would be in the volunteer scheduler if they are available. Email me at vickidame@jbfsale.com if you think we may be interested in swapping for some shopping time!

Q: How do I sign up, or know what I signed up for?
A: Log into your account to see all available options or for shifts that are available. If you are unable to find a shift that works for you, email me and I will do my best to accommodate your request.

Q: Can someone else volunteer in my place?
A: Yes! They just need to tell the Team Lead when they check in. ALL volunteers MUST fill out a volunteer waiver, or you won't get credit for your time.

Q. Do you provide childcare for Team Members?
A. No. Unfortunately, we are not able to provide childcare at this time. We need the full attention of our team members so we ask that you find daycare for your shift when working at the sale, or consider a barter option (when available) if you are unable to secure child care.

Q. I'm pregnant or have a medical condition. Is it OK for me to be a volunteer?
A. We have many volunteer opportunities that can be a "sit down" position or very light duty. If you are pregnant or have a medical condition, you will want to volunteer when the workload is less. If you need special arrangements, please email me and I'll see what I can do.

I wish Just Between Friends was around when my kids were little, but I've got grandchildren now. I get it! Raising kids is expensive. JBF Reno wants to help!

My daughters and son needed a ton of stuff from the day they were born until...well it never ends. That's why I love this business. I know JBF helps families save so much money and they can earn money on their gently used items.

Plus, it fits right in with reducing, reusing and recycling. It's a win-win!
