Volunteer: Enhance your JBF Experience

Join our TEAM! Volunteers make our event go round. Without YOU, we couldn't bring this amazing event to the community! You don't have to consign to voluteer, FYI.

Volunteer PERKS:

Earn 70%, up to 85%, on all your sold items!

Most shifts are only 4 hours.

Shop EARLIER at the presale before we open to the public! The more you help, the ealier you shop!!

Shop our exclusive volunteer 50% off presale.

Recieve your consignor check AT PICK UP!

Pick up your unsold items first!



A Team

A Team is a new volunteer shift we've recently come up with, and allows volunteers to 80% on their sold items without spending every day with us. A Team volunteers work a drop-off shift AND a Breakdown shift (Sunday evening). You MUST work both shifts in order to qualify for 80% on your sold items.

*At this time, this option does not apply to power sellers (consignors with more than 300 items).


JBF Crew

Crew members work 5-five hour shifts, and earn 85% on their sold items. These shifts can be found in the volunteer scheduler, and are listed as Crew Shifts. They also shop the earlier volunteer presale, 10am on Thursday morning. They also receive JBF t-shirts, and all of the above perks already listed.


Power Sellers

Are you a Power Seller? If you have 300 plus  items you're bringing to the sale, we consider you a Power Seller!

In order for our sorting to go efficiently, we do ask that you work a Power Seller Sorting Shift via the online volunteer scheduler (this shift is held Sunday evening). During this time you'll be helping us sort ALL consignors items, ensuring this big job gets done on time. You will not earn volunteer credit for this shift. You may choose a second volunteer shift to work during the event to earn the extra percentage (70%) on your sold items.

Power Sellers unable or unwilling to help in this way will have a $40 charge added to their consignor account so we can hire someone to work in their place. As an alternative, Power Sellers who mark Donate on all their items can bypass the sorting requirement and not pay the $40 fee.

Power Sellers can earn 80% by meeting the requirements of the JBF Crew Members, but are not eligible to earn 80% on their sold items via the A Team program, as the Power Seller mandatory sorting shift and the All Star sorting shift are at the same time. If you have questions regarding this, please email us.

My name is Andrea Murkin, I have been with JBF for nearly a decade. I started with JBF Lee's Summit in the spring of 2009. I'd never experienced JBF before, so I consigned, volunteered and shopped. And immediately bought a franchise. I can honestly say, if I had it to do over again, I would do it exactly the same.

I'm a mother of 3 amazing kids, two girls and a crazy little boy. In the JBF "off season", I'm a stay at home mom, and substitue teach. We live on 60 acres with cattle, horses, dogs, and cats. In other words, there is literally ALWAYS something that needs to be done. I love every minute, and I wouldn't change a thing.
