Zone Drop Off is BACK~~

~~and it’s better than before!

We analyzed and assessed – and improved Zone Drop Off to make your time unloading and placing your items to be efficient – while allowing room for you to move. Here’s the breakdown – if you pack smart, you’ll be find your Zone and Zoom!

What this means: volunteers take boxes/bins of like-items and do the secondary sort into their respective areas.

For example…in the Accessories area…we’ll have girls, boys and gender neutral. The bin for girls will be easy for you to find and place all your girls accessories into one bin. We’ll take that bin and sort it into: belts, hats, gloves, scarves, etc.

You do the check on quality – you give us just the best stuff – and we’ll do the second sort to save you time at drop off. Pack well at home – and you’ll be in and out in a flash!

Zone Drop Off Fall 2017

KZoo Drop Off – Two Weeks!

jbf_ilovejbf_180x180_webadWe are just two weeks out from Kalamazoo’s drop off! We’re excited to see everyone again and look forward to making this a great sale!

If you’re selling in Kalamazoo – have you checked over the details of the drop off and sale times?

Now would be a good time to get familiar with where, when and what you need to bring when drop off starts. Go to the Kalamazoo Sale Page by clicking here. Got questions, don’t hesitate to ask us here, or on Facebook!

It’s almost time!!

Getting in the Zone

Are you getting into the Zone?

Well, maybe for purging and tagging – but how about for packing?

Pack smart – pack in ways that allow you to maximize your efficiency at drop off. How so? Check out this floor plan:


Each zone is marked with a star – and at each star, you’ll be dropping off your items into general categories like TOYS/Infant or TOYS/Toddler….from there, we’ll take the Infant Toys and start a sub-sort like rattles, educational, musical, etc. We’ll organize the tables as we go – so it’s nice and pretty for opening day.

What does this mean for you? If you pack smart – and you’re ready to find your zones, you’ll zoom right through and be out in no time!

See you soon!!
