Buy your Consignor Ticket

To facilitate a smooth dropoff, we use EVENTBRITE to PREPAY THE CONSIGNOR FEE & SCHEDULE DROPOFFS.
FIRST: Log into your JBF account and check the box to Register as a Consignor.
SECOND: Use Eventbrite to prepay your $12 Consignor Fee and select a dropoff time.

*Pre-purchasing a Consignor ticket will secure your spot for the upcoming sale.
*Your Consignor fee is Non-Refundable should your plans change. You WILL be able to log back into your Eventbrite account to change the dropoff time if necessary, save the Eventbrite confirmation email with link for easy access to your ticket.
*If you have a coupon from a previous sale that waives the consignor fee, please go ahead and register and pay online with eventbrite, then bring that coupon to dropoff and we will add the consignor fee back onto your check. 

We Reward Great Consignors!

Spend a little extra time prepping your items and we'll reward you for being thorough!

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 prior
*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 or check our list HERE!
*This same list is good at the Maple Grove, 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.

Dropoff:
Please use eventbrite to prepay the consignor fee AND CHOOSE A DROPOFF TIME even though you will not need to go through inspection. This ensures that we will have adequate racks available for you. You can register for a time on EITHER dropoff day, regardless of how many items you are bringing.

At dropoff you do NOT need to wait in the computer check in line, just bypass that line and come inside and look for the red "Perfect Consignor Check-In" table. Follow all directions on the red sign and we will check you in on the computer at the end of the night.

 

Refer a Friend! Request postcards and you and your friend might BOTH WIN a $25 gift certificate!

 MERCHANDISE PREP Tagging Info

 What we Accept

Consignor Details

Purchase a Tagging Gun Kit:

Tagging guns help to make tagging your clothes go much faster! Purchase a tagging gun & supplies through our ebay store.

We always have tagging kits available at the sale and any consignor workshops for $20, as well as bags of large safety pins 200 pins/$4 and replacement barbs 1000/$4.

Please Note!!!
When using a tagging gun, tag ONLY through the actual 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.
 

Registering is a 2 Step Process:
1-Register as a Consignor in your Profile
2-Purchase a Consignor Ticket through EVENTBRITE to PREPAY your Consignor fee & CHOOSE your dropoff time
