When & Where
Just Between Friends Vancouver, BC
Just Between Friends is families helping other families! We recycle the items our kids no longer need by re-selling the clothing, toys, furniture, and equipment that our kids have outgrown. This means huge savings for families who love bargains! Items at the JBF sale are inspected for quality and priced 50%-90% off retail. Plus, most items go half price on the final day of the sale.
