Just Between Friends - shop, sell, save, smart!

Want to shop early and find the best deals first?

We'd love for you to get involved with JBF North Kansas City.  By doing so, you'll be invited to shop before we open to the public to find the best deals first!

What does that even mean?  Here's an example.  Often times we'll get multiples of a popular toy or equipment.  Because consignors set their own prices, one might be priced at $4 and there might be the same toy for $6, $8 and $10.  All are great deals compared to retail, but I bet the early shopper is going to grab up the $4 one!  So the earlier you shop, the more money you save!

Volunteers shop first (in order of how many hours they help out), then Consignors, then Community Presales.  There's several different ways to shop early, so read on for the details!

Community Presales

Prime Time Shopping:  Thursday, March 14th, 6pm-10pm
$10 admission (18 & over).  Don't want to Consign or Volunteer but still want first dibs with fewer crowds?  This presale is for you!!  Click here for tickets.

First Time Parents or Grandparents:  Thursday, March 15th, 7pm-10pm

Please consider volunteering!  I know for many it's stepping outside your comfort zone but you really should try it.  I think you'll be pleasantly surprised!  It'll be rewarding for both you and the event!  You'll earn 70% on your sold items (or 80% if you choose two All-Star shifts!) AND get to shop early too.  The more you volunteer, the earlier you shop.

You can be a first time mom or grandma or even just a mom who is not consigning but just wants to shop before the crowds on Thursday too!  You'll have fun and get to shop early, a great time if you're looking for furniture or baby equipment!

You'll do jobs such as inspecting items that come in, customer service, hold area, organizing, sorting, greeting at the front and exit doors, the list goes on and on!  If you need a sit down job, please e-mail us so we get you down on a day and time that we can best facilitate that.  Some shifts are physical and always on the go, others days we need people who are good at sitting in place!

It's easy to see what days and times we need help.  Just log in to My Profile and check the "volunteer" box.  You can then see and select the shifts that work for you!  Sorry, no children are allowed during your volunteer time.

Volunteer Presales:  Thursday, March 14th
Volunteer only with pass, no adult guests.
JBF All-Stars + 16 Hour Volunteers:  2:30pm
12 Hour Volunteers:   3pm
8 Hour Volunteers:  3:30pm
4 Hour Volunteers: 4pm

Volunteers (plus family!) also get to shop the 50% off presale early, at 9am on Sunday, March 17th.  Passes for both presales will be given
during Consignor drop off.  Not consigning?  Just come about 10 minutes before your presale time to pick up your passes.

Consignors (plus family!) are invited to shop the 50% off presale at 9:30am Sunday March 17th.  Passes for these presales will be given at drop off.


Join the JBF Crew

Want to be part of the hardest working, fun loving, bargain hunting people in town?  Our JBF Crew is made up of some wonderful people who donate 25 hours of their time during the sale to help run it.

Why on earth would they do that?  Is it for the lifelong friendships?  The camaraderie? The free t-shirt?  The shopping?  The 80% they earn on their sold items?

It's probably all of the above!  But if I had to guess, their first response would probably be THE SHOPPING!  JBF Crew get to shop first at the sale.  Before other volunteers, consignors and the public.

Many have been with us YEARS (a few even date back to 2008!).  We LOVE to welcome new faces to our group of friends.

To qualify, just choose 5 of the 5-hour Crew Shifts on the online scheduler then e-mail me your t-shirt size so I know what to order for you.  Come with a great attitude and ready to have fun.  This is a dynamic group and we'd LOVE to add you to our crew!

My name is Andrea Murkin, and 2019 marks my 10th year with JBF.  I have 3 amazing kids and substitue teach. We live on 60 acres with cattle, horses, dogs, and cats. Like all busy moms, there is literally ALWAYS something to get done.   Because of my crazy life, I've called in reinforcements for the sale!

Amber Post and I have been friends for the decade I've been with JBF.  She's organized the Lee's Summit event for 13 years and has been my mentor along the way.  We're joining forces to make the NKC event as big and amazing as the Lee's Summit one is.  I'm so excited to have both she and her assistant, Jenn on board.

Together the 3 of us will provide you with the best communication, shopping and consigning experience you've ever seen.  Join us this Spring and see for yourself, we can't wait to hang out with you!!
