With back-to-school upon us, it’s time to start thinking about fall/winter shopping! If your kids are anything like mine, they are asking for the best of the best… Justice, Nike, Under Armour, etc. These brands are expensive even if you happen to catch a sale or discount. If your kids are growing faster than your budget, shop at the upcoming Just Between Friends (JBF) 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, sneakers, books, toys, electronics, puzzles, and MORE… they have it all! All items are inspected for wear, and JBF only sells the best!
Here are my top shopping tips to get the most bang for your buck!
- 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. Don’t forget Halloween costumes, fancy holiday outfits, and snow gear!
- 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!
- Use their Ikea shopping bags and hold area. Those bags are huge! You can fill them to the brim, then put them in the hold area until you are done shopping! Just pick them up on the way to the register! It’s common for moms to stock up for the upcoming season (think 3-4 FULL bags)… and there’s no need to drag all that around the sales floor.
- 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!).
- Want the very best selection? Consider shopping during presales! Presales are Wednesday, August 29th. If you are an expecting mom (or foster or adoptive mom), or have a child under age 12 months, are a teacher, or have 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 or EARLY BIRD ticket! Click here to get tickets.
- Make a second trip during the 50% off sale! Come back on Saturday to shop, when many items will be reduced 50% off!
