How many of you like new shopping experiences? I do!! *waving hand and jumping up and down* Sorry to annoy everyone by answering my own question, but I gotta tell you about this awesome sale!
I had never heard of Just Between Friends, but apparently it’s quite well known. I was offered 2 free passes to go the pre-show last night. My friend, Katie, and I went with a little bit of spending money and a whole lot of “It’s Momma Time” excitement!
Getting into the sale was a breeze! We showed our passes and we didn’t have any bags/rollers to check so we were on our way. Just walking in seemed overwhelming at first. There was toys, DVDs, books, household items, bikes, tables, and some boutiques downstairs. The whole top floor was clothes, bedding, shoes and other items you might need for bedrooms.
I thought that the set up for it was basically pretty simple and neat. I liked that there wasn’t a bunch of tables with people to deal with. The prices are on everything and each person selling something has their own number to know when something is sold. The person selling the item gets to choose the price, so there many items that were the same, but priced differently.
Everything, for the most part, was pretty well labeled. In some of the areas of the clothes, it was hard to find the right sizes.
The nice thing was that if you found something too large to cart around, you could take it the holding place. It could sit there for 2 hours while you shopped before they would put it back onto the floor, so be careful you don’t spend too much time shopping!
I read in the quick facts for JBF and saw that it said they check carefully for stains. Unfortunately, we did find some clothing items and blankets that were stained. Thankfully, it was only a few items. Most of the items were very clean.
I spent under $20 and walked away with a beautifully hand-painted farm scene step-stool for the kids to use in the kitchen, a really nice coffee bean grinder, a huge cat encyclopedia and a hanging storage container from Ikea.
Katie left with some CUTE clothes for her sweet little girl. The choices were endless for her size! Anything baby to toddler had choices gallore!
I would definitely suggest, if you are pregnant, have small children or school aged children, that you head out to one of these sales!
