Event Description

Just Between Friends (JBF) has announced three Spring Community Children’s and Maternity Consignment Events in the metro area.  The Germantown/Port Washington sale will be held March 12 through 16 at the Washington County Fairgrounds; the Waukesha County sale from March 21 through 23 at the Waukesha Expo Center; and the Milwaukee County sale on April 6 through 11 at the Wisconsin Exposition Center at Wisconsin State Fair Park.

The Milwaukee County event will be open to the public Sunday through Tuesday, April 6 through 8, from 10 a.m. to 7 p.m.; Wednesday, April 9, from 10 a.m. to 5 p.m.; Thursday,  April 10, from 10 a.m. to 7 p.m.; and Friday, April 11, 10 a.m. to 1 p.m.  On Sunday, a $3 admission fee will be charged, with the fees donated to the Check Up for Chicks charity, which encourages frequent breast exams for women.  Admission is free for the remaining days' sales.

JBF events offer “gently used” and “new” children’s clothing in sizes 0 to 18, maternity clothes in sizes XS to plus, shoes in sizes infant to 3, as well as toys, board and electronic games, DVDs, and books. All clothing items and shoes are inspected before the event for current fashion, stains, and tears. Items will be organized like a children’s store, where everything is divided by gender, size, and category. Each event features new and different items. The spring sales will feature spring and summer clothing items.

“Many families are feeling an economic pinch at this time, so the service Just Between Friends sales bring to the community is extremely valuable,” said Ammie Maltz, organizer of the JBF Germantown sale. “Our purpose is twofold:  to offer opportunities for families to purchase gently used clothes and toys for their children at very reasonable prices, and secondly, to offer families the opportunity to sell their used items in a carefully managed atmosphere and make a few dollars doing so.”

Stephanie Suring, organizer of the Waukesha County sale, added:  “JBF spring sales are great opportunities for families to purchase a new wardrobe for their children and fill toy boxes. Typical sales offer a wide range of items for moms-to-be, new mothers, and families of all ages and sizes.”

Melissa Monsoor, organizer of the Milwaukee County sale pointed out, “We usually have about everything, from maternity clothing to breast pumps to wipe warmers to the latest fashions from Justice or Gymboree to Fisher Price and Little Tikes playground toys, and other high interest toys and children’s electronics.”

JBF team members staff each sale and earn various benefits for helping at the sales. To learn more about opportunities and rewards of joining the team for each individual sale, visit www.jbfsale.com. Consignors utilize an exclusive, free barcode tagging system to tag items, track daily sales, and manage an accurate, itemized list of any unsold, fashionable, and desirable items that are then donated on behalf of JBF and the consignors to organizations, including the Salvation Army, for area families in need.

Just Between Friends serves more than 260,000 American families in 22 states and provides an opportunity for families to recycle their kids’ clothing and toys. Wisconsin currently offers five JBF sales events with each independently operated, and there are over 130 sales in 28 states and British Columbia, Canada..  The Salvation Army is an international movement located in over 100 countries around the world. It has been serving communities in the Greater Milwaukee area for over 100 years.
