CBS affiliate features Just Between Friends team member on the money to be made in running a consignment sale franchise. CBS-DFW recently highlighted the amazing savings that shoppers find, as well as the big bucks that consignment sale franchise owners rake in at Just Between Friends sales events. The article and television segment were both titled, “Mom Makes Thousands Selling Children’s Clothes,” and featured a Just Between Friends consignment sale franchise event in Denton, Texas, a suburb of the Dallas-Fort Worth metropolitan area. “The bargains are so good here that a lot of people don’t use hand baskets to shop but they use wagons,” says Joel Thomas, journalist with CBS-DFW in the television segment. “Families flock to consignment sales like this where a thrifty parent can see huge bargains.” Joel interviews Just Between Friends consignment sales franchise team member Jennifer Templeton on her ability to make a profit out of the lightly used children’s clothing that she sells second hand. ““I do, I see the profit,” Jennifer says. “It’s sort of like a fun thing for us. I don’t know, it’s kind of like treasure hunting.” The article points out that Jennifer made $4,000 during one weekend of Just Between Friends consignment sales event, which was used for her son’s orthodontist bill. Just Between Friends is a the largest consignment sale franchise in the nation, hosting over 140 events a year in North America. “We finished with his braces, we paid off his braces with my JBF money,” she says in the article. “We went to Gulf Shores, Alabama last summer. “If you love looking for bargains and getting a bargain and making money, this is it! It’s fun. To me is just fine. It’s almost not even work.” View the CBS-DFW television segment and print article on Just Between Friends consignment sales franchise by clicking here.
