It's that time again to save big on kids' clothes, toys, and baby things.There are many consignment sales throughout the year all over the Triangle. One of the biggest sales will be held July 12 -19 to offer the public an opportunity to make some money and get some great deals.

The Kids Exchange offers a sea of clothes, every kid of toys you could ever imagine and baby items.

It takes place at the Jim Graham building at the State Fairgrounds, but it all starts with the thousands of sellers looking to cash in on outgrown kids items.

"For the most part, people make between $200 to $500 each season," co-founder Amy Winstead said.

Sellers make about two thirds of whatever they're asking for. And anyone is still welcome to partake in the sale, just register online at www.kidsexchange.net.

"Hit the sell icon and you can print your selling manual and go from there," Winstead said.

You price and tag your own items, then drop everything off starting Monday the 12 through Wednesday the 14th.

The public sale starts Friday, July 16 and goes through Sunday July 18. July 19 will be used to pick-up unsold items from 10 a.m. to 1 p.m.

Winstead suggests buyers to come with a list, because it is sometimes overwhelming for first timers.

If you sell, you get to shop early on Thursday the 15, and if you volunteer to work the sale, you get to shop even earlier starting on Wednesday.

There's plenty to buy as the sales bring in more than 25,000 people all looking to walk away with a deal.
