PITTSBURGH (KDKA) – Has your house become cluttered with toys, kids clothes and baby equipment you never use anymore?
Now, there’s a new way to get rid of it all that is quick and easy. The best part is you can make some money, too.
It’s a new spin on the Just Between Friends Consignment Sale for all things kids, baby and maternity.
KDKA’s Kristine Sorensen gave it a try to see how it works.
Jack and Sophie Kitzmiller are experienced spy kids and sneak up on their mom, Sheri.
She knows they go through phases with their toys, which is why she sold dozens of their old toys through Just Between Friends, on demand.
It’s a much simpler process than selling at their big tent sale, which she’d done once before.
“I work full-time, didn’t have time to do it. This was so much easier,” Sheri said.
It’s also easier than the yard sale, where she first tried to sell their things, but only five customers showed up.
Through Just Between Friends On Demand, Sheri made $300 and only spent a few hours organizing.
Organizer Kelly Rowbie comes right to your house.
She explains what happens next.
“We’ll inspect any clothing for quality just like we would at our sales. We inspect items for safety, make sure nothing is recalled. And we go through and look at everything and give you a price,” Rowbie said.
Rowbie pays what she describes as “yard sale prices” — a quarter to $2 for a clothing item, a quarter to a couple dollars for toys depending on the size.
They take just about anything for kids, babies and expectant moms, except stuffed animals, VHS tapes and anything that’s not safe.
The best part is they write you a check and haul it all away, right on the spot.
If you want to buy, the flash sale happens every Thursday at 8 p.m. You can sell your stuff on demand anytime all year long.
You buy items through PayPal online and pick it up at the weekly pick-up site at Neville Island.
Just Between Friends has its bi-annual big sale at the Robert Morris University golf dome coming up on Sept. 19-21.
