Just Between Friends - shop, sell, save, smart!


ANYONE can sell and EVERYONE can shop (and save) with Just Between Friends! The JBF sale in Reading is Berks County's LARGEST event and we want YOU to join us.

Team Members shop first (the more your work, the earlier you shop), then Consignors, then Community Presales. There are several different ways to shop early, so read on for complete details.

The sale opens to the public on Thursday, September 7th and runs through Sunday, September 10th. Sale hours are outlined below.

PLEASE NOTE: Due to time and space constraints, we do not allow children under the age of 12 to attend any presale on Wednesday, September 6th before "Family Shop" which begins at 7pm. Nursing infants who can be worn "on" mom or dad are okay any time. Please, no strollers or car seat carriers before 7pm on the 6th.

Children and strollers welcome all public sale days.

It takes a small army of moms and dads to put on a sale the magnitude of ours. Helping at the sale directly contributes to the success of the event AND is the easiest way to maximize your profits.

Team Members earn an extra 10% on sold items (5% if participating as a Valet Consignor) for working a total of 4 hours + you shop first. The more you work, the earlier you shop.

Look for EXTRA CREDIT shifts on the schedule where you double your credits and shop even earlier. For example, there are several 4-hour shifts where you earn an 8-hour presale pass...EASY!

Hi, I'm Tracy and I organize the JBF sale in Reading as well as in Oaks, Lancaster, and Lower Bucks County. Over the past eight years, we have helped thousands of Berks County moms and dads just like you clean up and cash in with JBF.

As a mom, I get it!  Raising kids on a budget is tough...not to mention they grow out of things so darn fast.  That's why we created Just Between Friends. Our award winning event allows local families to sell the items their kids no longer use, and get way MORE for LESS! It's a win-win and why I love JBF...I know you will too!
