Kids grow so fast. Just Between Friends (JBF) helps families say “YES!” to everything their growing kids need.

JBF brings a community of moms and dads together twice a year for a huge pop-up sale of all gently used or new children’s items. When you sell at JBF, you are keeping items out of the landfill and helping your neighbors find affordable clothing for their kids.
