Shopping Early at JBF

There are many ways to shop early at the JBF sale, but even if you are unable to join us early, the deals are still amazing on our Public Shopping Days.
 

Volunteers Shop First

4 hours is all it takes for you or a family member or friend to volunteer so you can shop early.  The more you volunteer, the earlier you shop.  Volunteering is easy and fun and you will love avoiding the crowds when you shop early.  Details about how volunteering works and when the Volunteer Presales happen are on the Consignor Details webpage.  Each volunteer receives one Presale Pass and one 1/2 Price Presale Pass for him or herself as well as one Guest Pass and one 1/2 Price Guest Presale Pass.  The Guest Passes will be different from the times you shop, but we hope you will enjoy sharing these Guest Passes with friends!

The online Volunteer Scheduler is open mid-July through through 8/27/18 at 10 am.  If you miss the online signup time and want to volunteer and you are a consignor, you can sign up for a volunteer shift at Consignor Drop Off.  If you are not a consignor and want to volunteer, email FtWorthVol@jbfsale.com and let us know when you would like to work and we will see what we can work out.  Please note this email is not monitored except from 5 days before the event begins until the end of the event.  If you have a question outside of that time frame, please contact Joanie@jbfsale.com.
 

Consignors and PTA Partners Shop Second

Each consignor receives one Consignor Pass and one Consignor Guest Pass as well as one 1/2 Price Consignor Presale Pass and one 1/2 Price Guest Presale Pass.  If they are able to volunteer, they exchange their Consignor Pass and their 1/2 Price Presale Pass for earlier passes.  Details about dates and times as well as information on how to become a consignor are on the Consignor Details webpage.
 

The Consignor Details webpage explains how the PTA Partner program works.  What a great way to not only help your school by selling items on behalf of the school, but also a portion of one of the day's profits is given back to the school.  It's a double-win!  Why not help your school raise money in this simple and fun way!

 

Public Shopping Time Has Arrived

We are open for public shopping for 4 days.  The first day has an admission price that reduces half-way through the day.  Don't miss the Discount Coupon available online.  The second day is our $3 admission day, but the online Discount Coupon makes admission FREE!  The Discount Coupon can be accessed through the Get Tickets link on the Event Details webpage.  The last two days are FREE admission, with the exception of the Early Bird 1/2 Price Sale.  See the Event Details webpage for times.  Children under 18 years old are always free.  More details on the public days are found on the Schedule on the Event Details webpage.
 

First Time Parents and First Time Grandparents Get Their Turn

FREE/EARLY Admission for those registered who meet the qualifications.  The 1/2 Price Presale Passes for First Time Parents/Grandparents will be distributed on 9/1/18.  If you registered but were unble to shop on 9/1/18, you may join us this day and this will couont as your one time to shop early for the First Time Parent or Grandparent Sale.  (See note above about how to register)

 

This is one of the biggest and most exciting times of the sale.  Our first time parents and grandparents register and shop this FUN sale, getting tons of things they need for their new baby or grandbaby, saving hundreds of dollars.

Because of the popularity of the First Time Parent/Grandparent Sale, there are some requirements for this event:

  1. You may only attend the JBF Fort Worth First Time Parent/Grandparent Sale or 1/2 Price Presale one time.  In other words, if you joined us last sale, you may not shop this special sale again.  We will be checking ID's against the list of those who registered and who have shopped before.
  2. To qualify, you must be expecting your first child/grandchild or your first child/grandchild must be 12 months or younger.  If you are an adoptive parent/grandparent waiting for your adoption of your first child/grandchild to come through, you also qualify!  Foster parents also qualify, but they must register.
  3. Each registered First Time Parent or Grandparent is allowed to bring one guest with them for free.  The Guest does not need to register.  Additional Guests may enter the sale on 9/1/18 with them but the admission for the extra Guest is $5/person, payable at the door.  The discount coupon has already been applied to this admission price.  Additional Guests that come on 9/8/18 may not enter the sale until we open to the public at 9 am ($5 admission) or at 10 am (free).
  4. When we hit 200 signups, the registration will close and it will be noted here.  We are unable to make exceptions.

You will receive your Passes when you come to the event and check in at the purple table in the Concourse of the Exhibit Hall. You may line up as early as you like but please note that Will Rogers has very few places to sit in the Concourse of the Exhibit Hall and the line will be long.

Just Between Friends Fort Worth began in 2003 just before my son was born, so I've been in your shoes and know how important it is to shop smart for the children in your life.

I am here to help YOU make and save money with JBF, while we help our community by keeping extra packaging and waste out of our landfills.  That's what I call a winning combination.

I hope you will be part of the #JBF817 Team!
