Event description


First Time Parents - You've hit the jackpot! Wait until you see the savings at our HUGE children's and maternity consignment sales event. Over 900 consignors and 50,000 square feet of infant items, furniture, strollers, carseats, maternity items, clothing, books, toys, and more.

If you are expecting your first child or have had your first child in the last 12 months, you are invited to enter early on our first public sale day (get in the door between 9am-Noon)! First Time Parents are welcome to bring one adult guest, just be sure to get a ticket for each adult. (Sorry, if you have shopped JBF Tacoma previously as a First Time Parent, you may not enter early). Early Entrance tickets are limited to 300 and are free of charge.

Bring your own bags to carry all your great finds home with you. Bring a friend or relative so that you can "divide and conquer" our huge sales floor. Bring your shopping list with clothing and shoe sizes. Budget to shop for the next 6 months of your child's life (until our fall sale!).

We prefer cash and also accept VISA and Mastercard at the event.

Free parking in the Gold Lot (corner of 9th & Meridian in Puyallup). Enter the Fairgrounds at the Gold Gate and walk to the Pavilion.
