Texas’ largest children’s and maternity consignment sales event, Just Between Friends (JBF) of Fort Worth, is holding their seventeenth semi-annual children’s and maternity consignment sale. This one-stop shopping sales event provides much-needed cost savings to thousands of Metroplex area families who are keeping an eye on the faltering economy. The average shopper can expect to save 50% to 90% off retail pricing. Additionally, the sales event benefits area charities.
Held at the Will Rogers Memorial Center in Fort Worth, September 23 – October 1, 2011, the semi-annual sale features hundreds of thousands of items that includes name-brand and boutique children’s fall, winter, and holiday attire; baby equipment, electronics, toys, and costumes for Halloween. A portion of the sale’s proceeds as well as unsold items are donated to local charities, 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 an enormous sale requiring over 100,000 square feet of space. Now in their seventeenth season, the upcoming event is expected to have record-breaking attendance.
“With the economy wavering, families are more cautious than ever when it comes to spending money,” said Joanie Morrison, Co-Owner, Just Between Friends of Fort Worth. “As a result, our fall sale is going to be the largest in our history. After seventeen seasons we know what trends to watch for. Based on early sign-ups, it is clear that Metroplex-area families are acting more budget conscious than ever. Nearly everyone is searching for a way to save. With our JBF Fort Worth sale saving families between 50%-90% off of retail pricing, we are expecting literally hundreds of fervent, budget-minded shoppers to be lined up and waiting as we open the doors on the first day of our sale,” stated Morrison.
“We are living in unprecedented times,” stated Pam Willingham, Co-owner, Just Between Friends of Fort Worth. “Many families no longer have the luxury of paying retail prices for their children’s clothing, equipment, and toy needs. The concept of JBF assists parents greatly with this challenge, especially this time of year. With back-to-school expenses, Halloween, and the holidays fast approaching, families who are already stretched become anxious. When they walk into our sale you can just see the relief and excitement on their faces as they find safe, quality items at 50%-90% of what they would have to pay at the mall,” she commented.
