When the seasons change, I automatically think of my preschooler's closet. The sweaters, her favorite gray boots, the Strasburg coat, and her favorite Doc McStuffins mittens will be much too small next year and will be much too warm for the upcoming months. Then, I begin to THINK about the new clothes she will have to wear for the warmest month of the year (June, July, August, September) and I instantly begin searching for the date for the next Just Between Friends sale in Fort Worth.
I always look forward to this sale. The volunteers, the other parents, and the selection of merchandise always exceeds my expectations. My first Just Between Friends sale occurred before my little one was born. Since then, I have a revolving event set on my calendar for each fall and spring focused on the upcoming Fort Worth Just Between Friends sale.
Just Between Friends Fort Worth, Texas's largest children and maternity consignment sale, will occur from March 3rd to March 6th with extended hours for the volunteers. Check out the schedule http://fortworth.jbfsale.com. The event is held at the Fort Worth Will Rogers Memorial Center - Amon G. Carter Hall which will feature 75,000 square feet of merchandise.
