  • YOU set your own prices and earn 60% on your sales
  • There is a $12 Consignor fee to participate, that helps offset the cost of organizing the event. After you register, you will receive a link to Eventbrite where you will purchase your Consignor Ticket to reserve your spot and choose your dropoff time!
  • Join our team and give 4 hours of your time towards helping out at the sale & we reward you with an EXTRA 10% on your sales!
  • Consignors and Team Members get to shop before the public to find the best deals FIRST! The more you can help out, the earlier you can shop!
  • There is a presale before opening day AND a presale for half-price bargains before the public shopping.
  • Free barcoding website! This gives you a fast & convenient way to price your items and you can track sales online during the event.
  • We bring in thousands of shoppers and sell your items for you...sweet! Average attendance at a Maple Grove sale is OVER 5000 shoppers in 5 days!
  • Maple Grove JBF supports local charities! If you choose to donate your unsold items they go directly to needy families through C.R.O.S.S., and several smaller charities.  If you choose not to donate, all your items will be sorted and ready for an easy pick up.
  • If you tag ALL your items to let them donate AND reduce, then we'll ADD the $12 Consignor fee back onto your check...sweet! (Must bring at least 75 items to qualify).

Perfect Consignors List...Yippee!

We Reward Great Consignors! Spend a little extra time being thorough and bring only your BEST, and we'll reward you with a speedy dropoff!

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 and make dropoff go faster!

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.
*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 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 DON'T 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!
 

Tagging Help:

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. Email Kris@jbfsale.com

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
