Just Between Friends Announces Three Spring Sales in Metro Area and Tie-In This Year with Salvation Army



Jan. 23, 2013

Just Between Friends (JBF) has announced three Spring Community Children’s and Maternity Consignment Events in the metro area.  The Germantown/Port Washington sale will be held March 6 through 10, at the Washington County Fairgrounds; the Milwaukee County sale on April 21 through 26, at the Wisconsin Exposition Center at Wisconsin State Fair Park; and the Waukesha County sale from May 2 through 5, at the Waukesha Expo Center.  

New this year is that JBF is working with the Salvation Army of Milwaukee County to further awareness of the Salvation Army’s efforts to help those in need. Salvation Army will also be among the community organizations that will receive donations of unsold items following the JBF sales.

JBF’s Germantown/Port Washington sale will be open to the public on Wednesday and Thursday, March 6 and 7, from 9 a.m. to 7 p.m., Friday, March 8, from 10 a.m. to 8 p.m. A half-price sale will be held Saturday, March 9, from 8 a.m. to 5 p.m., and Sunday, March 10, from 9 a.m. to 1 p.m. Admission to Wednesday is $3. For Thursday, Friday, Saturday, and Sunday sales, admission is free. 



The Milwaukee County event will be open to the public Sunday through Friday, April 21 through 26, with these hours: Sunday, 10 a.m. to 9 p.m. Monday, April 22 and Tuesday, April 23, 10 a.m. to 7 p.m., Wednesday, April 24, 10 a.m. to 5 p.m.  A Half Price Sale will take place on Thursday, April 25, 10 a.m. to 9 p.m. and Friday, April 26, from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m. On Sunday, a $3.00 admission fee will be charged and benefits “Check up for Chicks,” a local women’s health initiative. For the remaining day’s sales, admission is free.



JBF’s Waukesha County sale will be open to the public Thursday, May 2 through Saturday, May 4, from 8 a.m. to 7 p.m., and Sunday, May 5, from 9 a.m. to 2 p.m. Admission to Thursday’s sale is $3; other days admission is free.

JBF events offer “gently used” and “new” children’s clothing in sizes 0 to 18, maternity clothes in sizes XS to plus, shoes in sizes infant to 3, as well as toys, board and electronic games, DVDs, and books. All clothing items and shoes are inspected before the event for current fashion, stains, and tears. Items will be organized like a children’s store, where everything is divided by gender, size, category, and brand name. Each event features new and different items.

“Every family is feeling the economic pinch at this time and the service Just Between Friends sales bring to the community is extremely valuable,” said Ammie Maltz, organizer of the JBF Germantown sale. “Our purpose is two-fold:  to offer opportunities for families to purchase gently used clothes and toys for their children at very reasonable prices, and to offer families the opportunity to sell their used items in a carefully managed atmosphere and make a few dollars doing so.”

“JBF spring sales are great opportunities for families to purchase a new wardrobe for their children and fill toy boxes,” said Stephanie Suring, organizer of the Waukesha County sale. “Typical sales offer a wide range of items for moms-to-be, new mothers, and families of all ages and sizes.”

“We usually have just about everything! From maternity clothing to breast pumps and wipes warmers to the latest fashions from Justice or Gymboree to Fisher Price, Little Tikes playground toys, and other high interest toys and children’s electronics,” Melissa Monsoor, organizer of the Milwaukee County sale said.



JBF team members staff each sale and earn various benefits for working the sales. To learn more about opportunities and rewards of joining the team for each individual sale, visit www.jbfsale.com. Consignors utilize an exclusive, free barcode tagging system to tag items, keep track daily sales, and manage an accurate, itemized list of any unsold, fashionable, and desirable items that are then donated on behalf of JBF and the consignors to organizations, including the Salvation Army, for area families in need.



Just Between Friends serves more than 260,000 American families in 22 states and provides an opportunity for families to recycle their kids’ clothing and toys. Wisconsin currently offers six JBF sales events with each independently operated. The Salvation Army is an international movement located in over 100 countries around the world. It  has been serving communities in the Greater Milwaukee for over 100 years.
