As part of its ongoing effort to promote safety, Just Between Friends of Western Main Line and Reading are changing the way they display certain toys and items that have small parts. Small parts in toys such as balls, marbles, batteries or balloons are a serious choking hazard for small children. The Consumer Product Safety Commission has new regulations in place for retailers & manufacturers for selling and displaying these items and JBF is voluntarily following the CSPC’s recommendations to protect children.
- Items with small parts will be displayed in a separate area/bin
- Items with small parts items will have clear signage and age recommendations.
- JBF will have a “small parts” testing device available
Just Between Friends is the Philadelphia region’s largest children’s consignment event where thousands of families come together to buy & sell new & gently used children’s and maternity items. Consignors sell the items their families have outgrown or no longer use. They prep their items, set their own price and drop them off at the event. JBF does the rest of the work and families can earn up to 70% of the sale price. Shoppers can find clothing, shoes, toys, games, books, baby equipment, outdoor gear, furniture – and much more. There are two spring events scheduled in Philadelphia and Reading.

About Just Between Friends
In 1997, Just Between Friends was created in a living room in Tulsa, Oklahoma when Shannon Wilburn, a mother of two young children, and her friend Daven Tackett hosted a sale with 17 friends as consignors and had gross sales of $2000. In 2015, that same sale hosted two events and grossed almost 1 million dollars. The sales caught on with families and grew, so in 2003, they formed Just Between Friends Franchise Systems, Inc. Wilburn is now sole owner and CEO of Just Between Friends Franchise Systems, Inc., which has 153 franchises in 28 states and one in Canada. System wide sales in 2015 topped 27 million and they expect to top 29 million in 2016. In June 2015, Forbes Magazine named Just Between Friends one of the top five franchises in the United States, up from #10 in 2014. JBF was also named one of Entrepreneur Magazine’s Top 500 Franchises in 2012, 2013, 2014 and 2015. Just Between Friends Franchise Systems Inc. also received a “Franchisee Satisfaction Award” and was named in the Top 50 franchises by “Franchise Business Review” for the past 6 years. JBF has been featured on numerous national television shows including The Today Show, Good Morning America, Real Biz with Rebecca Jarvis, Fox News, CBS Early Show, ABC News, CNN, Headline News, Inside Edition and CNBC’s The Big Idea.
