Top Shopping Tips for Kids Consignment Sales from JBF Hatfield/Quakertown

Originally published on March 28, 2017

Between the incredible pace that kids grow out of clothes, the pace in which they tire of toys, and the financial stressors of day-to-day life; you may question how much you spend on kids things and why.  Thankfully, consignment sales and Mommy Markets are a huge help with that! Kendra Salem, of the Just Between Friends Hatfield/Quakertown sale, provided me with some of her best tips for shopping this season as we gear up for this week’s spring sale!

“With spring upon us, it’s time to start shorts and tank tops, sandals and beach toys, outdoor toys and bathing suits! Kids grow fast (most budgets don’t!), so why pay retail! Shop at the upcoming Just Between Friends of Quakertown/Hatfield consignment sale event, and get MORE for LESS!  Think 3-4 pairs of jeans for the price of ONE at the retail stores. Bikes, diaper bags, cribs & carriers, puzzles and MORE… they have it all!

Here are my top shopping tips to get the most bang for your buck!

  1. Bring a list! With over 50,000 items in 20,000 square feet of space, hit your top priorities first, THEN shop the other areas.

  2. Write down upcoming birthdays and holidays. JBF is a great place to get gifts for a reduced price! They also offer a HUGE selection of brand-new Melissa and Doug items… all at 25% off retail price!

  3. Use their Ikea shopping bags and hold area. Those bags are huge! You can fill them to the brim, them put them in the hold area until you are done shopping! Just pick them up on the way to the register!

  4. Claim your free tickets ahead of time! Why pay at the door when free tickets are available online? Get your tickets here (don’t forget one for grandma, or your BFF!).

  5. Want the very best selection? Consider shopping during presales! Presales are Wednesday night. If you are an expecting mom (or foster or adoptive mom), have a child under age 12 months, are a teacher, or served in the military, you get to shop a day before the public! Don’t fit into one of those categories? No problem! Reserve a PRIME TIME ticket! Get tickets here!

  6. Make a second trip during the 50% off sale! Come back on Saturday to shop, when many items will be reduced 50% off!

  7. RSVP to the JBF Facebook event to stay in the know! They have lots of contests and giveaways, and go LIVE on Facebook to give you a sneak peek of what they have at the sale. RSVP here!
