My First Consignment Sale – Just Between Friends Dallas, March 20-23 #JBFDallas

It’s hard to believe, but until today, I had never been to a large consigment sale for kids. Since Jack was born, I have had Just Between Friends on my radar…but you know how it is. You think something looks cool, you want to go, and then…you just don’t. Or at least, that’s how it’s been for me. UNTIL TODAY.

Just Between Friends Dallas

So. Many. Toys.

This afternoon, a group of local bloggers had a chance check out the presale at Just Between Friends Dallas. And you guys? It. Was. AWESOME.

The Just Between Friends Dallas spring sale runs March 20-23, 2014. It’s located at the Mesquite Convention Center – easy to find and lots of room to SHOP inside!

I didn’t know what to expect, or what kinds of prices I would find. I had heard it was going to be full of bargains, but in my experience, “bargain” is relative…so I wasn’t sure how far my $25 JBF bucks would go! I decided I’d look for a couple of bathing suits and some shorts for the kids, and anything above that would be gravy.

But first, I found the shoe section. And the toy section. And the dress-up section. 

After about an hour and a half of shopping (and I could have stayed a lot longer…I didn’t even touch the tip of the iceberg in the books or decor areas!), I ended up with the following goodies:

  • 2 bathing suits for Claire
  • 1 bathing suit for Jack
  • 4 tops (1 is  Tea Collection!)
  • a  boutique-brand dress
  • seven pairs of shorts
  • 1 pair of sandals
  • 2 pairs of Disney Princess dress-up shoes (hello, Cinderella and Belle)
  • 1 light saber

My grand total? $50.34.

#JBFDallas Finds

SO MUCH cute stuff!

If you’re local to Dallas and have littles (or are expecting!), this is ABSOLUTELY worth checking out. The last day of the sale, everything is 50% – I might go back and see what else I can find for that price (I’m talking to you, books!!). I’m definitely a convert, and I can see what all the fuss is about and why people line up hours before the sale starts to get the best stuff!

If you go, be sure to use the hashtag #JBFDallas to share your finds so everyone can see!

Have you been to a JBF sale before?

I received early admission to #JBFDallas and was compensated in exchange for this post.

    Good deals you found! Consignment shops are fun and you never know what you might find. When we got a puppy (many years ago) she was growing fast, sometimes 6 lbs in a week. She needed something warm to wear and puppy sweaters are pricey to wear for a week. So I went to a consignment shop every week and picked up kids sweat shirts for $1 or $2.

    Last year I went to the dog shelter in our community to spend time with the dogs. I needed more casual things to wear there. My time was spent getting very dirty, sitting on the ground with some of the dogs, bathing, brushing etc. One of the ladies at the shelter told me about some great thrift shops in the area and one of them was the same shelter’s thrift store. All the money raised at the store went to the care of the animals at the shelter. Worked out perfect. I found some of the cutest shorts and jeans for between $1 and $2.

      I wish I could find a consignment shop for me! We have lots of kids shops and sale, but I don’t know of any for adults (well, aside from some higher-end ones that are too expensive). Shorts for $1 – that’s an awesome deal!

      When I was pregnant with my daughter I bought a ton of maternity clothes off of Craigslist…I think I ended up paying about $2/item – it was so much more affordable than buying new maternity clothes.

      I LOVE the idea of using inexpensive kid sweat shirts for your puppy!!
