“Even with our economy improving, the recession of the past couple of years forced 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 is more popular than ever with Metroplex-area families. When we began Just Between Friends Fort Worth, we primarily saw budget shoppers. These days with nearly everyone searching for savings, consignment sales are here to stay! On opening day our sales event will have hundreds of eager, budget-minded shoppers lined up waiting to be the first in the door,” stated Morrison.
“Suddenly, consignment shopping is chic!” said Morrison. “We are thrilled we have found a way to serve DFW families all the while doing our part to donate to our partner charities.”
Quotes: Pam Willingham, Co-Owner, Just Between Friends of Fort Worth
“Joanie and I are both moms’ first and business owners second,” stated Pam Willingham, Co-owner, Just Between Friends of Fort Worth. “We know all-too well how expensive it can be to keep up with children’s clothing, equipment and toy needs. The concept of JBF assists parents greatly with this.”
“We see four kinds of bargain-hunters at JBF Fort Worth. We have our valued consignors who sell their gently used clothing and items. Second, are shoppers who are ecstatic to purchase beautiful, brand-name and designer merchandise at a fraction of retail pricing.
Third, are those who both consign AND shop. They sell their items and then shop to find values for their children. Lastly, are our volunteers who are there for a variety of reasons. The benefits of being involved with a sale like JBF are so great! Our Consignors benefit as they sell their items. Our Shoppers as they experience incredible savings. And our Community as our volunteers and charities benefit from our sale,” Willingham remarked.
