"Ability to buy clothes from many different people for yard sale prices, all in one location! The sexes and sizes are separated so it's easy to find what I need. "

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.
