White Bear Lake Education Foundation Angel Fund/The Closet -The Closet is a place where WBL district families in need can “shop” for clothing in a clean, non-threatening, professional environment. They provide clothing and footwear items only; anything that can be worn from head to toe. The Closet is an extension of the Angel Fund. When students in our school district present a need for clothing, they will be able to shop for clothing, free of charge. Students and families are referred to The Closet by school administration.

White Bear Area Emergency Food Shelf- Shoppers and consignors are encouraged to bring food donations throughout the Sale for the WBL Food Shelf. Food Donations are accepted in place of admission fees on our first public sale day.  The White Bear Area Emergency Food Shelf is there for those who do not have the resources necessary to weather unexpected emergencies

Consignment with a Cause- I believe that I am  priviledged to be able to serve area families by bringing a high-quality sales event that helps them make money and save money.

I also love that the sale can give back to the community.  JBF understands that need is not always determined by financial status.  With JBF, we can help in a lot of different ways no matter what the circumstance.


I am thrilled that you are thinking about joining us for this exciting event! This is an outstanding opportunity for moms and dads like you to earn a great profit for your children's gently-used items and help the less fortunate families of the Twin Cities.

Becoming part of this great event is easy. You gather your items, prepare them for the sale, and drop them off at the sale to be sold. For participating, you get to be a part of a presale that you have to see to believe! Imagine this: over 20,000+ square feet of the best in children's, teen's, and maternity merchandise that you have ever seen! We hope to see you at the next event!
