Just Between Friends Holiday Toy Sales Event

I have attended the Just Between Friends sale in the past and I love getting nice gently used clothes for a great price, so when Bianca from The Pierogie Mama contacted me wanting to share some additional information about it, I couldn't say no!  If you are in the Seattle area, you should really check out this sale!  It sounds like it is going to be amazing!  But enough of what I have to say about it, lets get on to Bianca!

Bianca is the blogger behind The Pierogie Mama and loves to share about the north Seattle Just Between Friends Events! Please welcome her as she shares about the upcoming holiday sale for JBF Lynnwood at Gold Creek Church, in Mill Creek WA. 

Hi everyone! Today I'm really excited to share about a great event that kicks off my holiday shopping and invite you to enter a giveaway too! When you've got 4 nephews and a niece, plus two kids of your own, gift buying for the holidays can really rack up! Finding a thoughtful, meaningful and useful gift is really hard on a budget, especially for large families.  This time of year I strive to save money where I can, but most importantly I want to cut down on the time that I spend shopping. 

Running from store to store and packing the girls in and out of the car really begins to take a toll on my energy, when the main purpose of the season is to spend it with your loved ones and cherish that time together.  Buying gifts is a little inevitable for the holidays, but my primary focus over the last few years is quality time versus mountains of gifts. 

That's why I'm so glad that I discovered the JBF Lynnwood Toy Sale and Vendor Fair last year! The Lynnwood Toy Sale and Vendor Fair is a little different than the standard JBF consignment sale that occurs during the rest of the year. This sale puts preference towards toys and holiday items (such as dressier clothes, decor, or winter gear) and has consignors save the bulk of their seasonal items for the Fall and Spring sales. 

At the Toy Sale, you can expect to find full sections of your child's favorite themed categories- such as Sesame Street, construction, dolls, Disney, loads and loads of books, DVDs, and so much more. If you've been the the JBF Lynnwood sales at Gold Creek Church in the past, imagine 70% of that space filled with toys! That's a lot!

In addition to the consigned items at the sale, this is also a vendor fair. Heidi, the owner of this JBF franchise, works with many local businesses throughout the area and they get to feature their items or service at this event as well! Last year there was a cloth diaper store, Smith Brothers Milk, spa and many work-at-home / handmade businesses. It was a fun addition to the sale because you can knock out a lot of Christmas shopping all at one time. And all before December!

The schedule for this year's JBF Lynnwood Toy Sale and Vendor Fair is:
Friday Nov. 21st 9 to 7pm Sat Nov. 22nd- 8 to 3pm (50% off sale from 12-3)
Location: Gold Creek Church
4326 148th St SE, Mill Creek, WA 98012

Of course, these sales wouldn't be what they are without the fabulous consignors - so sign up and also learn from a consigning newb on how NOT to consign for the first time! ;)
