If you are interested in being considered for an A Team position, please contact Mandy at amandakimmell@jbfsale.com.
  • Valet Tagger Valet Taggers pick up, prep, price, tag, store, and bring items from consignors in our Valet Tagging program.

They set their own hours from home doing Valet Tagging work but also are required to help at least 4 hours at Consignor Drop-Off/Inspection. If you like tagging and want to be considered for a Valet Tagging position with JBF Katy, please contact Mandy for more details at amandakimmell@jbfsale.com.

Bags & Baby Carriers

Select:  Diaper bags, infant carriers, backpacks, and purses are great consignment items. Please inspect all items carefully to make sure items have not been recalled, stained, damage or are missing pieces. 
Package:  Please zip-tie items to an adult-size hanger. If you have a higher priced item, please ask to see a Coordinator at drop-off.

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

Select:  Bedding sizes accepted are bassinet through twin 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:  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

Select:  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 please.)  Check items to ensure they are in great condition.

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 a lot to choose from at the sale. If you have a higher priced item, please ask to see a Coordinator before leaving Drop-off.

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.


Select:  We sell children's clothing Newborn through size 20 (Abercrombie, Hollister, Roxy, American Eagle, Nike, Volcom, Burton preferred for juniors) as well as maternity sizes .

Our Spring Sale is "ALMOST ALL SEASON" (we do not limit to only Spring & Summer clothing, long-sleeved, sweatshirts and sweatpants, and lightweight jackets are ok. Winter clothing is not allowed at the Spring Sale. Please do not bring heavy jackets, thick winter pants, mittens/gloves, winter caps, and anything themed for the holidays like Christmas or Thanksgiving- save these items for the sale in the Fall!) Be picky. Look at your clothing items as if you were going to purchase them. No stained or damaged items will be accepted.  Any items that look like "mom's" or "dad's" clothes for juniors 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, the better it will sell.

Package & Hang:  Hangers - Please hang clothes so the hanger hook points to the left (like a question mark).  Hang size 0-6 clothing on child-size hangers and sizes 7-20 and maternity clothing on adult-size hangers. 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 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.
Price:  Hanging Clothing - Put outfits/set together to price for at least $3.00; Start at $3 for basic, generic brand 0-24mo outfit. Add $1 each for larger size, name brand, formal, and heavy/winter.  Non-hanging Clothing - Put sets together to price for at least $3.00, but okay to price for less (i.e., 6 pair of socks for $1.50).

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

Furniture & Equipment

Select:  Exersaucers, swings, high chairs, changing tables, cribs (Manufactured AFTER June 28, 2011; please bring Crib Waiver for all cribs), strollers, bath seats, baby walkers, car seats & car seat accessories must be checked for safety recalls, must have all parts, and be in good condition. Children's furniture - beds (toddler, twin), desks, side tables, dressers, etc.  Household furniture - please see Mommy Mart information below.

Please bring a Car Seat Checklist for all car seats, booster seats, and car seat base or infant carrier.

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

Mommy Mart

Select:  Each consignor may only bring a maximum of 5 Mommy Mart items.
Mommy Mart is Household items that other families will use (no knick knacks please).  You may consign storage solutions (baskets, bin, shelving), furniture (no upholstered items), decor (lamps, wall hangings, no antiques), and kitchen items (small appliances, utensils, etc.).  Please be aware, we will be VERY picky about which items are allowed for the Mommy Mart.

Package:  If selling multiple pieces together, be sure that all pieces are secured together, in a plastic bag if necessary.

Price:  Price to sell!  These items are not the primary reason shoppers come to JBF, so set the price very low!

Tag:  Secure the tag to the item to ensure that the tag does not fall off during the sale and so that item is not damaged when the tag is removed after purchase.


Select: Make sure that the shoes are clean, clean, clean! We will be VERY selective with shoes so please only bring your best! (Dirty shoes do not sell so please clean prior to tagging.)

Package: Fasten shoes together with zip ties. For infant shoes or small shoes without laces, you may put the shoes in a clear zip-lock bag. We prefer no shoe boxes. 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 clean and 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.


Select:  Ride-on toys, block sets, dolls, remote control cars, outdoor toys, learning toys, and more. All toys must be checked for safety recalls before consigning.  Clean all toys and baby equipment thoroughly.  Please test to make sure that toys and equipment are working properly. Battery operated toys must include working batteries (these can be purchased inexpensively at local discount stores).

Package:  Keeping tags and multiple items attached is essential for your items to sell. Bag all small parts belonging to toys/equipment in self-seal bags and tape the bag shut with clear packing tape. Fasten the bag securely to the item with ribbon, tape, or zip ties. Items must include ALL working parts.

Price:  Price 50% - 90% off retail.

Tag:  Attach JBF tag directly to item with clear packaging tape or hole-punch JBF tag and tie it to item.

Things to note about Valet Tagging:

  • Once the sale ends, the Valet Tagging agreement and percentage payment split ends (unless you choose to participate in Valet Tagging again.)
  • You may Valet tag again in a future sale. You will keep access to your Valet Tagging JBF account. Please try to keep your Valet Tagging account only for your Valet Tagger to use and use a separate JBF account to tag your own items.
  • Valet Tagging is especially geared to people who have great stuff but no time to be a traditional Consignor. Valet Consignors get to sell items and make money without doing much work. You can leave your items with your Valet Tagger and never see them again, unless you want to.
  • This program may change for future sales.

HUGE FALL SALE: October 4-6, 2018
Click here to RSVP


As parents of two young children (10 year-old Annaleise and 2 year-old Knox), we know how important keeping a family budget can be. We also know how frustrating it can be to spend money on nice toys, clothes, shoes, and gear our children outgrow in just a few months.

We are honored to serve area families by bringing high-quality JBF sales events that help area families make AND save money!

The Just Between Friends of Katy sales also give back an average of $15,000 in cash and donated items (each sale) to our community charity partner, Katy Christian Ministries. These donations go to help families in West Houston.

Our generous consignors can feel good about clearing out the clutter while adding back to their family budgets and supporting local families in need. 

Welcome to #jbfkatytx!

-Kris & Mandy
