Consignment sale set in Longview Feb. 20-22
Jan. 18, 2014 at 10 p.m.
A children's and maternity consignment sales event is scheduled for Feb. 20–22 at Maude Cobb Activity Center's Exhibit Building in Longview.
Just Between Friends (JBF) welcomes new consignors, volunteers and shoppers. Smart shoppers who participate in JBF sales events know that cutting back and being frugal does not mean giving up the things growing families need like clothing, toys and equipment.
JBF consignors get to set the price on their own items, prepare and drop their stuff off at the event (JBF does the rest) and make 60 percent of the profit from sales of their items. Consignors can make an additional 10 percent on sales by volunteering a shift before, during or after the event.
An additional benefit of volunteering to help at the event is a pre-sale shopping time; in fact, consignors who volunteer are the first to shop and get first option on all the best deals at each sale.
Online registration is available for both consignors and volunteers. Consignors get nightly updates on which of their items have sold and get their check in the mail within five days following the event. Volunteers have online access to select shifts and the jobs they wish to fill, plus JBF provides email reminders for volunteers.
Additional benefits of participating in a JBF Sale as a consignor include the opportunity to donate unsold items to local charities and receive a tax receipt for those contributions. Longview JBF will be working with two local charities that serve the East Texas area, East Texas Women's Center and the East Texas Food Bank. JBF's hope is that consignors will continue to see the value of this relationship and contributions will continue to grow.
While consignors set their own prices, JBF provides guidelines that encourage prices from 30-90 percent of retail costs. And JBF maintains high standards on merchandise, inspecting all equipment, clothing and shoes before they hit the sales floor. This means shoppers can find great deals on new and gently used clothes, toys, videos, books, shoes, games, furniture and more.
To register as a consignor, go to jbfsale.com. and sign-up for the Longview Spring Sale. There is no admission charge to attend this shopping event, but organizers do ask that attendees bring a canned food donation for the East Texas Food Bank.
