The cost of raising children continues to go up, yet many Central Valley families have not seen a similar increase in their income. Any mom can tell you one of their biggest expenses is buying clothes for their kids, who often outgrow shoes every four months and clothes every year.
But help is on the way. This March, Central Valley moms can not only buy clothes 50-90% below retail but also sell their kids’ used clothes to other parents.
Visalia will host its 13th annual Just Between Friends (JBF) Sale March 13-19 at the old Ross building, 3303 S. Mooney Blvd. in Visalia. JBF is Visalia and Fresno’s largest kid’s gear and clothing consignment sale. Don’t miss the award-winning savings: Sell and Shop for newborn-teens! JBF community children’s consignment events allow local moms to shop from tens of thousands of new and gently-used items like clothing, toys, baby gear, DVDs, crafting supplies, nursery décor and nice furniture at 50% to 90% off retail pricing. Moms who sell their items make up to 70% on their sold items, which is significantly more than traditional consignment options. And admission to the event is free.
“Just Between Friends is all about helping families save and earn money. I am so grateful that we have been able to do just that in hundreds of communities for thousands of families. With paychecks shrinking due to higher taxes while prices keep going up, families need Just Between Friends now more than ever,” explained Mandi Milburn, event coordinator for the JBF sales in Visalia and Fresno.
Friends (JBF) Visalia holds two sales each year, one in the spring and one in the fall. The spring sale happens before Earth Day making it a great time for families to recycle gently worn clothes into a new wardrobe for another family or recycle their used baby accessories to help new parents protect their child without going into debt.
Moms will have a second opportunity to shop for huge discounts at the JBF Sale in Fresno April 14-16 at the Fresno Fairgrounds. For more information on Just Between Friends Visalia/Fresno sales, visit www.Visalia.jbfsale.com or www.Fresno.jbfsale.com . You can also find the sales on Facebook.
