We are run entirely by volunteers! Our sale doesn't work without YOU! 


*Security - Work a shift checking receipts, strollers, and bags at the door.
*Sales Floor - Sales floor volunteers walk around and tidy up the sales floor so that it always looks presentable for our shoppers.
*Inspection- Volunteers during an inspection shift will be inspecting clothes on the racks for stains, rips, holes, and out of date items. We only want to sell the best!
*Breakdown- No heavy lifting required! Breakdown shift consists of sorting items by consignor number/donate.
*Registers- This shift is specifically for working the register at the event. There will be a bit of homework before the event (it’s only a 10 minute video!)
*Heavy Lifting- Volunteers during this shift will be assisting in loading/unloading the trailers and setting up racks and tables. Bring your muscles!

**You may have your husband, mom, friend, etc volunteer in your place!

Hi y'all! I'm Marisa, a local mom of 2 and lover of Just Between Friends!

I am so excited to bring this type of event to the Des Moines area. I truly believe that it benefits everyone in the community.

Families sell their slightly used gear and make extra money. Other families purchase the slightly used gear and save tons of money. Unsold items (those marked to donate) are donated to our charity partner, Hope Ministries, to give to those in their care or for use in their Thrift stores which in turn feeds the homeless.

This event truly brings this community together, and I am so happy that you are choosing to be a part of it.
