Welcome to Skagit County, Just Between Friends of Marysville & Mount Vernon!

It's been a long time coming! Skagit County is getting ready to welcome the Just Between Friends consignment sale to the Skagit County Fairgrounds Pavilion from October 16-18, 2015.

Just Between Friends is a nationwide consignment event that takes place several times per year, typically in the fall and spring. Washington State boasts almost a dozen locations and the newest one is being held for the Marysville and Mount Vernon territory!

At "JBF" you'll find everything you need for maternity, baby and child through teen. Local families consign their gently used and new items for 50-90% off retail prices. It's my favorite place to shop for my two children's clothes because I can get everything they need for each season for literally a fraction of the price of what I'd pay at the store. Not to mention, children outgrow clothes so quickly that it makes financial and ecological sense to buy used.

Shopping at JBF consignment sales also keeps dollars local; as all of the items are being consigned by local families. When you buy from a JBF sale, a parent in your community is getting funds back on their initial clothing investment and they in turn can keep the ball rolling in buying the next set of clothing sizes for their kids.

Over the last two years I've been paring down our baby clothes, toys and gear in storage in preparation for someday baby #3. As I become a more seasoned parent I take note of what clothing items and gear works for us best and I'm able to pass on what we're done with. I've prepped those items for JBF sales and have seriously cashed in on what was sitting in storage for over a year! Click here to learn more about how to consign with JBF and what the benefits are.

Check out my previous JBF posts to see all of the great deals that I've found!

Finally, I'm excited to introduce the awesome woman who is behind this event. I've gotten to know Sheila in real life since we met at the Just Between Friends of Everett sale almost a year ago. Since working together we've become great friends and am really excited to share about her JBF sale. Sheila has a heart for community and you'll see her sharing a ton of Skagit and Whatcom county local family events on the JBF Marysville/Mount Vernon facebook page. As she's been preparing for this brand new sale she's shared with me how excited she is to get to know the families of Skagit county.

Sheila and her JBF Marysville/Mount Vernon team are excited to get YOU shopping at this brand new event, so she's offered up the following prizes to Pierogie Mama and Bits of Sweetness readers!
