WEST ALLIS - Many people are selling old kids stuff, or shop for great deals on more kids stuff, all in one place! 

It's a huge consignment sale at State Fair Park, geared especially towards moms and their little ones.

Inside the Wisconsin Products Pavilion, people are selling more than 70,000 items in what could be called a really big rummage, with endless options for your kids.

Clothes, shoes, toys, strollers, play pens, even maternity clothes for mothers are all selling for ridiculously low prices.

Milwaukee-area moms like Kate Sabol brought in their items to sell, and turned around and bought things.

"A car seat and a little table my seven-month old can learn to stand on," said Sabol.

"It's easier to take bits and pieces to a resale shop or having a rummage sale.  You just do all the up-front work and you're done you get a check in the mail."

In these times, with things being so tight for many families, the turnout for this five-day event called "Just Between Friends" is huge.

"People in this economy are really looking to save some money, and make some money, so they're cleaning out everything they have and bringing it here, and then they come and shop," Melinda Herbert of JBF Milwaukee explained.

Many item's that don't sell will be donated to charity.

Sabol knows she will be back again next time.

"I wish I would have known about it when I was pregnant.  I would have saved a lot of money."

The sale is open to the public and runs through Sunday.
