Friday Sales are Posted!

Be sure to check your account on - the sales are posted from the 24-hour shoppers on Friday evening!

The Time is NOW!

Presale day is FINALLY here! And for the 12-hour shoppers, it was an early morning. :) We waited very impatiently for our turn to snatch up the deals, and it was so worth it.

The aisles are packed with great spring/summer clothes, and there are a ton of outdoor toys, swimming items, and bikes!

Be sure to also check out the strollers first thing - they always go fast!

And the piles (and I do mean mountains) of super cute crib bedding!

Less than 20 hours until the sale opens to the public!

Let the fun (almost) begin!

Well, it's just after midnight on February 27th...that means TODAY is presale day!
Doors open to the public on Sunday, February 28th at 1:00 pm! Don't miss it...this sale looks like a GREAT one!

In fact, you may just come away from this JBF sale with something you didn't even know you needed.
Of course, there are tons of strollers, carseats, baby equipment, toys, clothes(!!!). You know that already.
But what about a new big ride-on toy for this summer?

Can I interest you in a tee pee? That really looks like tons of fun for a little boy!

Or some drums, maybe? Who doesn't need a little more noise? :)

Drop off time has arrived!

Consignors began the drop off process last night. That drop off time was for consignors with over 300 items, and there were quite a few of us there!
Don't worry, there is still plenty of room for even more. If you have been to the sale before, you know that these racks will eventually be filled to the brim!

Drop off times continue today, Thursday, until 9:00 pm, and again tomorrow from 9:00 am - 2:00 pm.

***Oh, and just a quick reminder about shoes...make SURE you follow the shoe guidelines when deciding what shoes to bring. Shoes are VERY carefully inspected, so make sure they are in tip top shape!

Tightening the Belt...

I think in the current state of the US economy, all of us are trying to watch our pennies a little closer, even when it comes to stuff for your kids. And I think that's one of the great things about JBF - you can get like new, name brand clothes for a fraction of the price! I regularly find name brand items (I've gotten everything from GAP to L.L. Bean to Gymboree) with the price tags STILL ATTACHED! And with that, you see that you really are paying such a small portion of the retail price! It makes me feel much better about getting the most out of every dollar!

So this year I'm going with a plan. I will have a list of things I want to come away with and my budget in hand... It will be interesting to see how much I can check off the list - I'll be back after I shop to report on how much I was about to get for the dollar amount I set aside. I have a feeling it will be most everything!

So this begs the question, do you having a shopping plan or list for JBF this year? If so, what is it? 10 days and counting!!
