Bring Your Shopping List

Kids grow so fast and their needs are constantly changing.  Here are some helpful ideas for how to come prepared:

- New babies need the most - here's a great list to help you decide what's essential versus nice-to-have.

- For growing kids, cut a piece of string or curling ribbon the same length as your child's legs from ankle to waist.  Bring it with you to the sale to be confident that they'll fit those super cute pants on the rack!

- For bigger kids, trace their feet on paper and cut them out to easily know if shoes will fit.

- Write out a shopping list of the items your children will need for the next 6 months: think about school, summer, holidays, sports and vacations.



  If women and families with small children are your target market then JBF is where YOU need to advertise!  Be sure to ask about our 1-day and all 4-days of our event.  Rochester@jbfsale.com
