"I love great deals you can find on clothes, books, and other items my kids need or want throughout the year. Not having to pay so much for toys is another perk! As a consignor, a good portion of the money I earn is spent at the sale. "

"I love how easy it is to sell a large percentage of my kids clothes! It may be time consuming, but so are garage sales and I feel like JBF sells more in the end. I also love how easy it is to shop for both genders and different ages all in one place for cheap. JBF sales are a great way to find toys for a good price since kids grow out of them so fast"

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.
