Earn CASH!

YOU PRICE, PREPARE AND DROP-OFF YOUR QUALITY ITEMS!

You keep 60% of the selling price and a $12 consignor fee is deducted from your check. Your check is mailed to you about a week after the sale. You will earn more money than at a resale store or garage sale. We market and advertise, rent the space, host the sale and do all the paperwork and muscle work for you. 

Consignors drop off their items prior to the event. You do not have to stay with your items. The sale is set up just like a well organized store. Customers go home with the garments and take the hangers with them. Your unsold items will be sorted for pick up at the end of the sale or you can choose to donate your items to our charity partner.

Having kids is EXPENSIVE!  I'm a mom of 4 growing kids and it's hard to keep up!   JBF has made it possible for me to sell my kids' outgrown things and shop for the new clothes, gear and toys they need and love!  I love Spokane and am honored to bring this great event to our area.  I've been the coordinator of JBF Spokane since 2008 and I'm thankful for how much this event has blessed so many in our area.
