For the safety of all, we cannot allow your children to accompany you during your volunteer work. You must be at least 16 years old and show up with a smile and a positive attitude.

It is fine with us if someone else does the volunteer work on your behalf, whether it is your spouse, parent, or a friend. If someone is working for you, please sign up under your name and consignor number and let them know to mention they are working for you when they show up for the shift.

Some shifts overlap, but you need to work the number of hours for each shift to qualify for the Early Shopping Pass. For example, there may be a shift that is from 7am-10am and another shift that is from 9am-12pm. Working those 2 shifts does not qualify you for 6 hours volunteer credit, but will give you 5 hours of volunteer credit. We manually track all the shifts to make sure they are fair.

If you have questions about extending hours or working a non-published schedule, please email me.


JBF Loves to Barter

Sometimes you just don't have the the time to help at the event and we understand that. We'd still love for you to be able to participate in the Early Shopping and be a part of the fun!

JBF offers a way for individuals to do or give something in return for shopping early! It's called "bartering". Below is a list of just some of our bartering opportunities.

  • Free admission postcards - help us promote the sale by passing out free admission postcards to elementary schools, daycares, hospital, birthing centers, etc. Combine this barter with an onsite shift and bump up to an earlier pre-sale shopping time!
  • Media Outlet - do you work for a radio station, magazine, television or some type of media outlet? You can earn a 2,3,or 5 hour Early Shopping pass by promoting our event.
  • Photography at Sale - if you are a professional photographer and would like to come to the pre-sale and take digital photographs of the sale and provide them to us to use (royalty free) in our promotions, you earn a 5 hour Early Shopping pass.

Barter opportunities are on a first-come, first-served basis and must be requested by email. Click here to request a barter opportunity.

Please remember there are only so many of each option, so you will be taking someone else's opportunity to participate if you are unable to honor your barter. We know life happens, but please try to manage your available time and resources responsibly.

Do you have other barter ideas? Let me know. I would love to work with you!
NOTE: Volunteers during the actual sale are our biggest need, so please sign up to volunteer if you can.
