Welcome to the JBF Family...

Community is woven throughout everything we do at Just Between Friends.

We are local moms and dads just like you who work super hard to

help families make ends meet.

For some, providing basic necessities for their children is harder than for others.

We are blessed to work with various non-profits throughout 

the Greater Philadelphia area to recycle items that help ALL children to grow up

feeling confident, stylish and most of all, LOVED!

Hi, We're the Panase Family!

Parenting on a budget is tough, especially with kids growing so fast. We know, we’ve been there too!

In 2008, Tracy and her friend Beth discovered Just Between Friends (JBF), a simple solution for families to sell and buy children's items affordably. They were quickly sold on this concept (because it made so much sense) and launched Pennsylvania's first JBF franchise in Reading in the Spring of 2009.

By 2014, Tracy took full ownership of the Reading JBF franchise, with her husband John diving into daily operations. Together, we've made the JBF Sale in Reading one of the largest consignment events in the entire country. 

In December 2022, we fully embraced our commitment to helping families say “YES”. Tracy acquired the JBF Franchise System, and John took over the Reading location.

Now, John leads the Reading event along with a fantastic team that we’re honored to call friends. We're excited about the future and would love for you to join our growing community of parents with a purpose.
