HOUSTON We all know how a garage sale works but have you ever heard of a traveling garage sale? There s a very popular one that travels the nation. It s called Just Between Friends and it comes to Houston about three or four times a year. The sales are especially for Moms of younger children and they always draw a crowd.

The next one coming to Houston will be July 29 through July 31, 2010. It will be held at the Americas Reception Hall on the east side of downtown at 2311 Canal.

The JBF sales, as they are known, get merchandise from other moms who have gently used clothes, toys, books, shoes and even furniture in mint condition. Moms and grandmoms sell their stuff on consignment. They pay a $10 fee and get about 65 percent of whatever their item sells for.
