JBF Holiday Shopping Fun is coming up this week at the Andy Morin Sports Complex in Folsom, 66 Clarksville Road, Folsom, CA – November 18-20 at Just Between Friends! Also called JBF – this is a pop-up consignment event with infants and childrens’ toys, clothes, furniture, etc. that happens 2-3 times a year in Folsom and 2-3 times in Roseville. It’s been a family favorite for years and is great for parents AND grandparents to shop on a budget (you can sell too – but we haven’t done that here – one of my long-distance daughters does a great job with that as well, though and usually breaks even each year for her kids whole wardrobe – VERY AWESOME!) You can get in free on Friday and Saturday with preregistration, which they would greatly appreciate. Or you can pay to get in early on Thursday and early on Friday for the best choices (vital if you are looking for an uber popular item). Plus they have some other special pricing options. Go to https://folsom.jbfsale.com/index for more details.
