Just Between Friends - shop, sell, save, smart!

Shop the Early Bird Bargains!

You are invited to shop the BEST selection BEFORE we open to the public!

If you are a JBF Consignor you get in early. Plus, if you help at the sale, you get in even earlier!  Not in one of those groups? Not a problem. Check out the Prime Time option below.

Helpful Hints for First Time Shoppers:

  1. Make your shopping list:  what will your child need for the next 6 months?  Clothing & shoes (current size & 1 size up), books, toys, birthday gifts, and more.
  2. Bring reusable shopping bags to carry all your items home.
  3. PLEASE use good judgment when you bring your children. It is very busy especially during PreSale & 1st Public Shopping day. If possible, ask someone to watch your kids so you can enjoy your shopping experience.
  4. Be sure to register for your FREE tickets in advance! See links below

Thank you for your interest as a Vendor participant for the Ventura Just Between Friends. We appreciate your participation! We welcome all family friendly Vendors.

Vendors are available on a first paid, first served basis. No two exact vendors will be accepted however, alike vendors may be duplicated. I.e. We will not sell vendor space to two Mary Kay Consultants but one Mary Kay and one Arbonne Consultant will be allowed.

Please make sure to email your signed Vendor form to amandagobo@jbfsale.com and pay your vendor fee promptly as spaces are not held unless both are received. Vendor payment link click HERE.

We are offering several different ways to advertise your business.

Vendor Spots

Vendor Spots are sold as individual days or 3 days. There will be 2 different size Vendor spots. All spaces are placed indoor on the floor to receive most traffic from Shoppers. If electricity is needed will place you near a outlet.

1. Booth is a 8 ft table inside a 10 ft x 10 ft space. If you are selling merchandise this is the space you would reserve.

2. Table Top Only is a 8ft table. This is not a 10 ft x 10 ft space. The space it limited to the table top only. This is ideal for Vendors distributing information pamphlets and not selling merchandise. Example: a Photographer or Service provider.

Banner Display

Provide your business or organization’s banner (no larger than 4’x8’) and we’ll hang it on the wall for the 1,000+ shoppers to see.

Swag Bag

Can't make the event but still want to reach families in the area? Provide a valuable coupon, discount, promotional/gift item, or business card to go into our Swag Bags, which will be given to the first 200 shoppers. Keep in mind, giveaways with some sort of use/value (pens, toys, stickers, coupons, special offers, etc.) tend to catch our shoppers attention more than just a postcard or flyer. Pieces can be no larger than 5" x 8". You provide 200 copies of your ad and must be received before our deadline. You may choose any color paper and use both sides. You design and print (cut to size if needed) the ad or coupon.



This territory is currently for sale. If you are interested in finding out more information, please contact our Franchise Recruiter.

Helping families and communities save money and make money while providing for their families is what drives Just Between Friends.

As parents we invest a lot money in the items our children need and many of these items are in great shape long after our children out grow of the clothes, toys, play equipment, & furniture. Why not let other families purchase these items at greatly reduced costs and earn cash from these investments? Plus, JBF is a fun way to meet other moms in the area!

We Are Here to Help!
