How the pop-up consignment sale franchise goes above and beyond helping families save money nationwide
The reason the co-founder and CEO of Just Between Friends wants to partner with people who aren’t afraid to shout about the brand from the rooftops is because this pop-up consignment sale franchise is about so much more than making money. We want our owners to be financially successful, and we have found that financial success comes from taking care of their own communities – those people they care about the most.

Our sustainable business model is based on altruism: By helping more than 1 million families nationwide save money on buying children’s clothing, games, toys, maternity, and baby gear, we have become the leading pop-up consignment franchise in North America.
Our owners have big hearts
All JBF owners care about their communities. So, it’s an easy next step that when our owners set up their sales, they partner with a local nonprofit. We see our role in the community as an essential part in fulfilling the JBF company mission: “To glorify God by bringing communities and families together in a welcoming, friendly venue that allows them to care for children and be good stewards of what they have been given.” We’re a faith-based business, and for us, that faith comes as action!
How it works
JBF Owners partner with a nonprofit organization to benefit from every one of our sales. Our consignors and team members then donate items and goods to these local organizations that help women, children, and families. We serve groups that provide clothing closets, crisis centers, transitional emergency care, food banks, and many other wonderful services. Over the years, we have been able to give back an estimated $32.5 million in cash and in-kind donations to dozens of nonprofits nationwide, $6.25 million in 2019. The amount of money and donated items we are able to give back will only grow through the generosity of our consignors as we expand our footprint in North America.
An example of the tremendous amount of donated items we are able to extend to nonprofits is made evident by this thank-you letter from Eastside Baby Corner, one of our nonprofit partners near Seattle, Washington:
