Valet Consignors

**** NOTE: VALET CONSIGNOR REGISTRATION FOR THE FALL SALE IS FULL! PLEASE CHECK BACK IN THE SPRING!

Valet Consignors are those consignors who want to get rid of their stuff but just do not have enough time to tag it.  We've got you covered.  Sign up as a "Valet Consignor" and earn 45% of your sales (50% if you help at the sale).  Here's how to do it:

  • Register and get a consignor number
  • Email us to request a Valet Tagger
  • Drop off your clothing items as well as other "stuff" like toys, baby gear, games, books, puzzles and whatever else you can find for your tagger.  Review our Tips & Reminders for easy drop off.  Provide the completed waiver to your tagger.
  • Your tagger will prep, price and tag your items.  JBF will store and place the items on to the sales floor as well. Pick up of unsold items is the responsibility of each consignor.

Valet Consignors earn 45% of the sale price of your items less a $20 supply/consignor fee. If you help at the event for at least one 4-hour shift, you will earn an additional 5% less the same $20 fee. We'll also give you presale passes for you and 2 guests which will be held at the door with our greeter or emailed to you a week prior to the sale.

Need space or money now and can't wait for the sale? We have another option for YOU! Read on regarding our JBF On Demand program.
