**********************************************************

Now for the fun part...getting all of this stuff out of your house! Follow these tips to breeze in and out at dropoff like the savvy seller you are.

1- Bring your items tagged, prepped, and sorted by type/size to speed up your dropoff

2- When you arrive, load a rolling rack & check in at the computer. We allow ONE rack per consignor, make more trips if needed.

3- We'll inspect toys, equipment, games, etc while you are placing clothing items out on the floor. You should allow 30-90 minutes depending on how many items you bring. Pick up your presale passes when you're done!

Find more stuff to sell? You can bring MORE to the 2nd dropoff: Thurs. May 2  |  4-5p:  Note: No additional hanging clothing will be accepted.  No appointment needed.

 

Post Sale Pick-Up

Saturday, May 4  |  7-8pm

You have a choice!
You may donate your unsold items to our charity partner, Sharing Tree OR pick up your unsold items. If you donate items, you will be helping our local community + receive a donation slip for tax purposes with your check.

Pick up is totally painless as all items are sorted for you (how cool is that?)  You can be in and out within 10 minutes!

• If you are unable to pick up, a friend/family member can do so.  All items not picked up at 8:01 will be donated, sorry no exceptions.

• Any items that were pulled from the sales floor during the event (stained, broken, recalled) will be organized on tables to look over and collect as a part of the pickup steps. If they were being donated they will not be out.

How are Checks Calculated?

Great Question!  And here's the Answer!

Total Gross Sales x 60% (70% if you volunteered)
- Less fees (ie. express drop off, valet, if applicable to you)

=Your Check Total

Did you know, everyone can sell with JBF Rochester?  If you have growing kids, experience tells us you have items that are quickly outgrown, forgotten or no longer needed.  Selling with JBF is a great way to clean up and cash in.  It's recycling at it's best.  It's fun and easy, and we hope you're making plans to join us.

Tag 100 Items

We do not have a minimum item # requirement when selling with JBF, but we do recommend that you target selling at least 100 items.

For first time sellers, we know that 100 items can sound like a lot, but for those with young children we think you'll find out quickly just how many items you have and be pleased with just how quickly that many items can be tagged.  We find we mail the largest checks to those sellers who tag a minimum of 100+ items - those being a mix of large items (swings, gliders, strollers, playmats, etc), clothing items, books, toys, games and puzzles, and more.

What we Accept

Our Spring sale is May 2-4 and is the Spring/Summer sale.  We will accept all clothing that can be worn May-September.

Reminders
