A Graco infant stroller system -- new with tags -- for $90. Hundreds of girls' Easter dresses for as little as five or six dollars each. And like-new patent leather Mary Janes for four dollars.

That's just a small sample of the 150,000 children's items that will be available at this weekend's Just Between Friends Consignment Sale in Oaks, Pa., at the Expo Center.

Sale Organizer Tracey Panase says, "This is really like the Super Bowl of shopping. We have over 900 consigners, over 150,000 items and it just grows exponentially each and every time."

Just Between Friends holds its Western Main Line sale twice a year. At this weekend's sale you can find kids' spring and summer clothing along with just about anything else kids want or need at prices 50- to 90% off retail.

For boys, we found Chaps shorts for $4, a Gymboree suit for $30, and Osh Kosh polo for $3.50 and a Strasbourg smocked shortall outfit for $10.

Consigners price and tag their own items and were here earlier this week to put them out on the racks and tables. The sale is open to the public Thursday night until 8:00 p.m., Friday from 9:00 a.m. until 7:00 p.m., and Saturday from 8:00 a.m. until 6:00 p.m., when many items are reduced 50%.

Panase adds, "The savings are tremendous, when you think about you can clothe and entertain your kids for less than $100 a season. You can't beat that. And it's all in one spot, so you don't have to run around from store to store or garage sale to garage sale. It's just right here at the expo center."

Another big consignment sale is going on this weekend in Jamison, Pa., The Kids Kloset Swap runs from 9:30 a.m. until 8:00 p.m. Friday, March 15, 2013, and from 8:00 a.m. until 3:00 p.m. on Saturday, March 16, 2013, and from 1:00-5:00 p.m. on Sunday, March 17, 2013.
