Families Helping Families De-clutter, Organize, Save Money and Make Money. Just Between Friends of Tulsa Children’s Consignment Event Set for March 1 - 7 at Expo Square
Families save 50%-90% off retail at Tulsa’s largest consignment event
Tulsa, Okla. – Spring is coming and many families will be cleaning house and clearing out clutter. The American Cleaning Institute says three out of four families participate in spring cleaning. Many families also turn that extra clutter into cash at the big spring Just Between Friends Tulsa children’s consignment event.
Just Between Friends Co-founder Daven Tackett and her husband Paul (Mr. JBF) are in their 23nd year of helping families with children’s fashions, baby equipment, maternity items, toys, electronics and more, at significant savings compared to retail prices. This event is Tulsa’s largest consignment event set for March 1st – 7th in the Exchange Center Building at Expo Square.
Families and new parents-to-be want the best for their kids. We want to continue to show growing families how to get everything, yes, everything for their new babies and growing children at prices they can afford, from necessities to accessories, all in one place.

Bargains range from clothing, shoes and accessories, toys, baby equipment, to game systems, electronics, books and much more. Everything is generally 50% to 90% off retail prices.
MAKE MONEY: Families who consign their items make money to help with their budget and offset the costs of new items they need. First-time sellers with JBF Tulsa will have their consignor fee waived (Code: Consign4Free at sign up.) All consignors earn 60% of the sales, and 70%, if they volunteer during the event. All consignors get to shop early at the JBF Tulsa presales.
SAFETY: The Consumer Product Safety Commission says at least two children’s items are recalled each week. That’s why JBF has a recall expert on their team who works closely with the CPSC as well as safety groups Kids in Danger and We Make It Safer to keep families informed. They inspect items as they come in and pull anything that has been recalled or deemed unsafe for kids.
PROTECTING FAMILIES: JBF is also expanding its voluntary ban on Fisher Price Rock n’ Play sleepers and the Kids II Sleeper by banning all inclined sleepers, hammocks and wedges and crib bumpers at all events. In addition, to help prevent child deaths and injuries caused by furniture tip-overs, JBF will provide furniture tip-over restraints and a Furniture Tip-Over Prevention Sheet when they sell furniture 27” tall and higher.
JBF TULSA GIVES BACK: We are honored to have partnered with Emergency Infant Services for more than 15 years to help other local families in need. All clothing, equipment, toys and other items that do not sell and are marked for donation are given to EIS at the end of each event in the spring and fall.
About Just Between Friends
