ITEM DROP OFF (BEFORE THE EVENT)

Friday, September 28th | 8:30a - 10:30a (by appt only)

---------------------------------------------

HERE'S HOW IT WORKS:

CLICK HERE for your Fall 2018 Consignor Drop-Off Appointments .

1. Get your Drop Off appointment time/day ticket through Eventbrite as soon as possible. EVERY Consignor must schedule a drop off time and arrive for their scheduled appointment for drop off.

2. Drive to the front of The Hampshire Dome at your appointment time and follow the instructions of the Volunteer outside. They will scan your Eventbrite Ticket either on your phone or printout, and give you a sticker.  You will park by the front doors, unload your vehicle to your designated spot, then park your vehicle in the lot.

3. You may use one of our carts (if available) to bring your items into the building and place them on the sales floor in the appropriate areas. We do recommend bins for your hung clothing at this event due to our hanging rolling racks not fitting through the entryway correctly, so they won't be available. If you have your own wagon or cart, we recommend bringing it so you don't have to wait for ours. Clothes/shoes will be organized by gender/size and other items grouped by category.  Any items such as beds, pack and plays or anything that requires assembly must be assembled on the sales floor by the Consignor. Please bring appropriate tools for your items. All items are inspected AFTER drop-off.

4. Bring your signed Car Seat Checklist, and Crib Checklist (if applicable) and place them on your items on the sales floor.

5. Check out at the table on your way out to get your presale passes! That's it!

Note: Find more items to sell? (no clothes or shoes accepted at this time) You can bring them to the mid-sale drop off,  from 8p-8:30p.

At 8:01pm remaining items are donated to our charity partner The Pass Along Project. 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.

Bags & Baby Carriers

Diaper bags, infant carriers, backpacks, lunch boxes and kid's purses are great consignment items. Please inspect all items carefully to make sure items have not been recalled, stained, damaged or are missing pieces.  Please no women's handbags unless they are diaper bags.


Package:  Please zip-tie items to an adult-size hanger.

Price:  Price 50% - 75% off retail. Items in great condition tend to sell very well.  

Tag:  Hole-punch JBF tag and attach it to item with ribbon or string. If item contains multiple pieces, be sure all pieces are included and list number of items on JBF tag description.

Bedding, Blankets & Textiles

Bedding sizes accepted are bassinet through double/full only.

Please be selective when selling bedding, blankets, receiving blankets, burp cloths, and towels. New and barely used items sell best. Check carefully for stains; shoppers get very disappointed if they find a stain in a bundled blanket once they get home.


Package:  Blankets should be secured to hangers. Put bedding/crib/bedroom sets together in original packaging or in giant clear plastic bags. Arrange bedding sets inside bag so that shoppers can see all of the items as well as the design/pattern. Secure the bag so that items do not get separated. Bundle blankets, cloths, and towels with ribbon or string like a package (be sure multiple pieces cannot be separated).                                              

Price:  Price to sell! Shoppers are less likely to purchase these items used, so prices have to be low. Try to price 75% - 90% off retail.                                                    

Tag:  If bedding is in a plastic bag, attach tag securely with packaging tape to the inside of the bag and tape the bag shut (bedding set prices vary widely and securing tags inside bags prevents tag switching). If bedding/blankets are bundled with string, attach tag directly to blanket and tuck it under the ribbon/string so that it does not easily get pulled off when shifting around during the sale.

Books, Games, DVDs, Arts & Crafts

Books, book sets, board games, puzzles, video games, video game systems, scrapbook, arts & crafts sets are great items for resale.  Please only bring kids’, parenting, homeschooling, pregnancy and child rearing books.  Games and puzzles must have all pieces.  No "adult" content or rated "M" video games. We are unable to accept VHS tapes. Check dvds and video games for scratches and double check to ensure the disk is in the case!


Package:  Use clear, self-seal bags or clear cling wrap (saran wrap) to hold multiple items together; Tie sets of books together with ribbon/string. Be sure that parts/games to video game systems (such as Vtech) cannot be separated or switched out at the sale.     

Price:  Prices can range from $.50 to $50 in this category, depending on the item. Price to sell especially for books & DVDs as there are always lots to choose from at the sale.

Tag:  When tagging books, please attach your tag to the book with clear tape that can be removed without damaging the item. Tape tag to the outside cover of glossy books and to the inside cover of books that will easily tear when removing the tag. Please do not use masking or double sided tape. Hole-punch JBF tag and tie to sets. Click HERE for the Book, Game, DVD tagging video.

Clothing

We sell children's clothing Newborn through size 18, as well as maternity sizes. Our Spring Sale is Spring/Summer clothing only (what your kids would wear between May-September. Our Fall Sale is fall & winter clothing only (what your kids would wear between September-April).

Be picky. Look at your clothing items as if you were going to purchase them. No stained or damaged items will be accepted.  Any junior's items that look like "mom's" clothes will be rejected at inspection. 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). Try to hang clothing on size appropriate hangers or secure them to the hanger with safety pins. Clothing that falls off the hanger onto the floor does not sell well. Old Navy and many outlet stores are great places to get free hangers (they throw away hangers daily!) and WalMart & Target sell child-size plastic tube hangers at a great price.

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 or safety pins 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.

PriceHanging Clothing - The most successful JBF Consignors practice “Shopper-Focused Pricing.” You’re a smart bargain shopper - simply ask, “What price would make me buy this item without hesitation...and brag about it later to a friend?”
We DO NOT have a $3 rule at the JBF Southern New Hampshire sale.  We encourage you to price your items competitively and use the provided guide as a resource.                      

Tag:  Clothing on Hangers - Attach tag with a tagging gun to the label of shirt or safety pin to the upper right front of clothing. Insert the tagging 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.

However, if shoes are in the box, please remove the lid, secure it to the bottom of the box, and secure the shoes to the box (closed boxes do not sell well).               

Price: Shoes must be in good condition and should start at $3.00 for infant/toddler; Add $1 each for larger size, name brand, or heavy/winter.                                      

Tag: Punch a hole in the top of your tag and attach the tag to the shoes with the ribbon, string, or zip tie. For infant shoes in a clear zip-lock bag, put the tag inside the bag and tape the bag shut with clear packing tape.

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 somewhere (the question is where) in your home. Now is the time to gather them up to create your JBF toolbox.

Tagging Guns- are cheap and make tagging so much faster!  You can get sometimes get tagging guns at places like Michael's, Walmart, fabric stores etc.

Cardstock-  60lb or higher, can be purchased at any office supply store or picked up at Walmart.  Please ensure you use WHITE cardstock, not regular printer paper to ensure your tags don't rip easily.  Items tagged with printer paper instead of cardstock will be rejected during inspection.

Safety Pins- #2 or #3 size pins are recommended and can be purchased at any fabric supply store or Walmart. 

Hangers- Try to hang clothes on size appropriate hangers.  Size 4T clothing and under hang better on kids size hangers and larger sizes on adult hangers.  Many stores will give you hangers for free if you ask them, or you can buy the kids and adult tube or wire hangers for fairly cheap at Walmart or Target.

SPREAD THE WORD!

Consignor checks are NICE & BIG when each Consignor shares in getting the word out about JBF! Word-of-mouth advertising is the best form of advertising, and market research has shown that it takes 10 Shoppers for each Consignor to sell the majority of their items at the event. We can't do this without YOU!

How many Free Admission Passes can you hand out at your daycare, preschool, church, ob/gyn, mom's group, etc? Email us with your home address and how many passes you want and we'll send them to you! Other ideas are to send out emails, forward our JBF emails, share our  Facebook posts, and send the link for a Free Pass or coupons with friends, family and other mommies you meet!

As mother's, we understand that raising kids is expensive which is why JBF makes sense!  As parents and grandparents we all invest so much money into buying clothes, gear and toys that our kids outgrow so fast!  Why not let other families purchase these items at greatly reduced prices and earn cash from those investments!  We have this process down and are here to help your make and save money!
