The Great Recession of the past couple of years has motivated more families than ever to find ways to stretch their household budgets.

Just Between Friends Fort Worth, Texas' largest children’s and maternity consignment sale, is reporting a record-breaking number of consignors and shoppers registering for their semi-annual sales event being held September 4-11, 2010 at the Will Rogers Memorial Center in Fort Worth. Registration is up 20% over the Spring 2010 sales event. The renowned sale is targeted to provide special deals and recession relief to Metroplex area families.

“The Great Recession of the past couple of years has motivated more families than ever to find ways to stretch their household budgets,” said Joanie Morrison, Co-Owner, Just Between Friends of Fort Worth. “As a result our semi-annual sale has grown by leaps and bounds. Years ago when we started Just Between Friends Fort Worth, we mainly saw budget shoppers. These days with nearly everyone searching for savings, we see shoppers of all varieties! Not only is our parking lot filled with mini-vans and SUV’s, people pull up in Mercedes and BMW’s all the time. Everyone is looking to economize and a Just Between Friends consignment sale completely fits the bill,” stated Morrison.

The semi-annual sale, held at the Will Rogers Memorial Center in Fort Worth September 3 – 11, 2010, features a giant collection of boutique and name brand children’s and maternity Fall and Winter clothing, costumes, toys, and baby equipment. A portion of the sale proceeds as well as the unsold items are donated to local charitable organizations. These charities are Community Enrichment Center’s Open Arms Program, Teen Lifeline, and Fort Worth Metro.

With humble beginnings in Morrison’s living room, Just Between Friends of Fort Worth has grown to a massive sale that requires over 75,000 square feet of space. Now in their fifteenth season, boutique and brand name maternity, baby and children’s merchandise, including toys and equipment will be quick to go.
