Perfection Inspection Policy
If you have LESS THAN 3 items pulled during dropoff OR during the sale, you may be added to our "Perfect Consignor" list! This list allows you to BYPASS INSPECTION at the next sale!
Additional Criteria Considered:
*Must have consigned with us 2 times
*Must bring at least 100 items and a mixture of clothes/non-clothing items
*Must arrive with everything tagged correctly
*Must sell at least 50% of your inventory so we know you price right *This list will be updated after each sale and is at the discretion of the sale owners.
*Once on the list, you will remain on the list unless we have a reason (above) to ask you to go through inspection again.
*We send out an email prior to the sale letting you know you are on the list!
*This same list is good at the Maple Grove, Elk River, Coon Rapids & Eagan JBF sales that we run. Other JBF sales may have their own list, but you must make OUR list to qualify at these sales.
Tagging guns help to make tagging your clothes go much faster! Purchase a tagging gun & supplies through our ebay store.
When using a tagging gun, tag ONLY through the SEAM of the clothing or through the clothing size tag, so you don't put a hole in clothes! Items with holes from tagging barbs will be rejected at dropoff if not tagged properly. To ensure tags stay put, some consignors put a small piece of scotch tape over the tag/barb area.
