Here are the details on new features:

Early Bird 1/2 Price Shopping!
All volunteers who did not meet the qualifications to shop the 1/2 Price Volunteer Presale on Friday night, 9/11/15 will be given one Early Bird 1/2 Price Shopping Pass for Saturday morning, 9/12/15.  We open to the public on 9/12 at 9 am but you can come shop at 8 am!  Check the Volunteer webpage to see how to shop Friday night!

Return of Consignor Referral Program!
Back by popular demand, our Consignor Referral Program can help consignors make extra money on their items that sell.  If a consignor refers three friends to consign who have either never consigned at all at JBF Fort Worth or who have been unable to consign at JBF Fort Worth since 2011 or before, the referring consignor will make an additional 5% back on their sold items and the 3 new/returning consignors will have their consignor fee waived.  New/returning consignors must list who referred them when they register online as a consignor.

Volunteer Parking Reimbursement Increase!
Because we always need more volunteers, we are now offering a higher reimbursement of parking fees for our 16 Hour and 12 Hour Volunteers.  See the Volunteer webpage for details.  We are so grateful for our volunteers!

Larger Juniors Section!
We are now pleased to accept up through Size 5 in our Juniors section.  This also means we will accept XS and S sizes but nothing above that.  Remember, this does NOT mean "Misses" sized clothing but specifically items for our pre-teen and young teen girls!

Shoe Sizes through Size 7 Accepted!
As we are working to meet the needs of our pre-teens, we also are expanding the size of shoes we will accept up to size 7 (yes, this does include size 7.5 as well).  So for girls and boys shoes, we will take through size 7.  This does not mean that we will accept mom's or grandmom's shoes....we are still talking about shoes for kids!

All Seasons of Shoes Accepted!
There are no longer any seasonal restrictions on shoes.  We will accept winter shoes and summer shoes year-round.  Please keep in mind that your "off-season" shoes may not sell as well in the opposite sale season.  For instance, you may bring your winter boots to the spring/summer sale, but just keep in mind that our shoppers may not be as interested in buying them as they will at our fall/winter sale.

All Seasons of Maternity Clothes Accepted!
We will now accept all seasons of maternity clothing at all of the sales.  Remember that your off-season items may not sell as well.  The limit on maternity clothing items has been raised to 15 so only bring your best!

DAILY Giveaways at the Sale!
Every day at the sale, we will feature a FUN giveaway.  It might be a drawing for a waived consignor fee for a consignor.  It might be a drawing for a JBF gift certificate just for posting on our Facebook page.  It might be a drawing for FREE PARKING at the sale.  It might be randomly hidden JBF gift certificates hidden throughout the sales floor.  Whatever it is, you will not want to miss out on a chance to win! 

NEW PTA Partner Program!
Is your PTA/PTO looking for a good fund-raiser?  JBF is the answer.  Sell items, make good money, get special Presale Passes to shop early, and get a BONUS CHECK sent to you after the sale...that's right...a check over and above what your group made consigning items!  More details on the Community webpage.

Early Consignor Pickup!
As a benefit for our 20 Hour, 16 Hour, and 12 Hour Volunteers, we will have an early Consignor Pickup time option available just for you.  Check the Full Sale Calendar for details.

Sign Up Early and Save!
All Consignor Fees are collected online through Eventbrite.  Collecting the fees before the sale helps in planning.  The Consignor Fee remains at $12.50 but Eventbrite does charge a small service charge.  If you sign up to be a consignor by July 12, 2015 at 11 pm and pay your $12.50 fee through Eventbrite, JBF will cover the small service charge.  Instructions are on the Sell webpage in adition to being in the confirmation email you receive when you register as a consignor.  The fee goes to $17.50 if you are unable to pay it upfront and it must be removed from your check before we mail it to you.  CLICK HERE to go to Eventbrite and pay your fee now.

DropNGo Consigning Program Changes!
For our consignors that do not have time to do their own tagging and delivery to the sale, we offer our DropNGo Tagging Service.  We have two new features for that program. One allows you to drop your items off without going through them.  Fees will be adjusted for this privilege since the person tagging your items will spend more time checking for stains and matching up outfits.  The other new feature is the option to use our DropNGo Drop Zones.  We have a schedule of times/places where you may bring your items and drop them with us if you prefer that over taking them to a Tagger's home.  Details on our Sell webpage.

Valet Drop Off Special Pricing!
We love making JBF easier for you and have adjusted our Valet Drop Off prices down to help you out.  These appointments allow you to bring your tagged items to the sale and stay with your car while we do all of the work to get them into the Exhibit Hall and out on the sales floor.  Check our Sell webpage for details.

Family Fun Fest
Our Free Admission 1/2 Price Shopping Day on Saturday, September 12th just got better!  In addition to the amazing deals on things for the children in your life, we encourage you to bring the whole family down to Will Rogers and let your kids enjoy the activities at the FREE Family Fun Fest between 10 am and 1 pm.

Wall of Wishes Beneficiary
Our Wall of Wishes beneficiary for this sale is SafeHaven of Tarrant County.  If you are new to JBF Fort Worth, our Wall of Wishes works somewhat like an Angel Tree that you see during the holiday season.  When you enter the JBF sale, you will see our Wall of Wishes that will display items that are needed by an area non-profit group.  The items on the Wall will be items that you can purchase right at JBF.  You will make your purchases and then leave the items at JBF where the charity group will come pick up your generous donations at the end of the sale.  What an easy way to help families in need!  Learn more about SafeHaven on our Community Page.

3401 West Lancaster, Fort Worth, 76107

We are west of downtown Fort Worth, just north of I-30 and the Botanic Gardens. The Will Rogers complex is bordered by Lancaster Avenue, University Drive, Harley Street, and Montgomery Street. The Exhibit Hall is roughly in the center of the property, just south (behind) the Auditorium, Coliseum, and the 20-story Tower. The Exhibit Hall faces the Fort Worth Museum of Science and History to the west and has a covered, circle drive in front of it. Look for the flag poles and bronze horse/rider sculpture and you have found us!

Please remember that all Consignor Drop Off and Pick Up is through the North (back) doors of the Exhibit Hall that can be reached by entering through the parking gate on the west side of the complex by the animal barns and across from the museum.  The parking attendant will direct you where to park and all Drop Off and Pick Up Parking fees have been waived.
