Consignment sale helps families deal with tough economic times

Just Between Friends will hold a Community Children’s Consignment event Thursday April 7 through Saturday, April 9 at the Washington County Fair Park in West Bend and consigners are still encouraged to register.
“This is a great way to not only put your house through a good spring cleaning, but for me, it is also a great way to help my own family out,” said Ammie Maltz, event co-organizer. “With the economy the way it is, these events give families an opportunity to shop for gently-used new items while recycling their own items and getting money for them.”
Just Between Friends serves more than 260,000 American families in 22 states and provides an opportunity for families to recycle their kids’ clothing, toys, and other ‘stuff,’ Maltz said.
“Traditional consignment stores only offer 40 to 50 percent or less return on quality children’s items,” Maltz said. “Consigners with our organization generally make up to 70 percent of what their items sell for and they get to shop everyone else’s items before the doors are opened to the public.”
Consigners, volunteers and new moms can receive free passes to shop the consignment sale on Wednesday night before the event opens to the public, Maltz said.
Those interested in selling consignment items can visit the Germantown/Port Washington
sale page at and register their items.
“People can drop off their labeled consignment items up until next Wednesday,” Maltz said. “We have a very easy system mapped out on the website where consigners can tag their items with prices of their choice. The stickers will have a barcode that our scanners will be able to detect their consignment numbers. All sales are completely computer generated, which makes it really easy for consigners.”
According to Mertz on breakdown day the items will be gathered into consignment numbers and consigners will have the option of collecting their remaining items for a future JBF sale or donating them to selected charities.
