Just Between Friends (JBF)

Marisa Clark is the owner of our local Just Between Friends. Marisa lives in Norwalk with her husband, 3 yr old son, 8 month old daughter, and lab puppy, Tex.

Marisa says,  It has always been a dream of mine to own my own business, and I found the perfect business to channel my passions. We live an active lifestyle, and you’ll frequently see me running, at the gym, or doing yoga- sometimes it looks like I’m doing all 3, but that’s just me chasing after my 3 yr old.


  • Just Between Friends is North America’s Leading Children’s and Maternity Consignment Sales Event! TM
  • Just Between Friends was established in 1997. Now there are over 142 events across North America
  • Consigning is EASY! Consignors tag their items on our website, print out the tags and attach to each item, drop off items at the sale, and receive a check at the end of the event. Consignors make between 65-75% of their items sold.
  • Fast Drop Off-There is no line to stand in when dropping off items! We know everyone hates wasting time in line, so we have changed our drop off format to accommodate our consignors busy lives. Consignors are able to place their items directly on the sales floor during consignor drop off; we go through after drop off and pull any items that don’t meet our quality standards or have been recalled.
  • Safety– Just Between Friends wants to ensure safety for all of our shoppers and their children which is why we are the ONLY children’s consignment event to have a recall specialist on-staff. **It has come to our attention that Graco has stopped offering fix kits for the recall of their strollers: Passage, Alano, and Spree. We still frequently see these strollers coming to the event, so we are offering a trade in. Just Between Friends Des Moines will give you $25 in JBF Bucks when you trade in your recalled, unfixed stroller. (here is a link to the initial recall
  • GENTLY USED– Just Between Friends Des Moines wants to offer our shoppers quality clothing which is why we only accept clothing that is in a gently used condition. This means no staining, holes, excessive wear, or faded clothing.
  • Consignors have the option of donating unsold items at the end of the event. These unsold items go to Hope Ministries here in Des Moines.
  • Community Event– This event is capable of bringing the community together. It is incredible to see how a few days can benefit a community so much. Just Between Friends Des Moines allows Central Iowa families to make money, save money, and give back to the community. I absolutely love that this event puts money in the pockets of Des Moines area families and supports our community. This combines two areas I am incredibly passionate about: the Des Moines area and saving families money. I absolutely love Des Moines, and I love being able to make it even better!

At The Little Gym of West Des Moines, we take a holistic “Three-Dimensional Learning” approach to skill development.
