Just Between Friends, Tucson's largest consignment sale of gently used items for kids, is taking place today through Saturday at the Tucson Convention Center ballroom, 260 S. Church Ave.

JBF holds two events each year, giving Tucson families the opportunity to make money selling unwanted items, and to save money on clothes, toys, book and furniture for maternity needs to teens, with items priced at about a third of their retail value. Consignors make 65 percent of the sale.

The sale is organized by size, gender and item, like it would be at a department store. New this year is a dedicated area for shoppers to test out items they are purchasing, as well as a nursing moms area.

The event runs from 10 a.m. to 8 p.m. Thursday, 10 a.m. to 6 p.m. Friday and 8 a.m. to 5 p.m. Saturday. Admission is $2 on Thursday, but free the other days. Saturday is half price day. Most items will be 50 percent off.

As an added bonus, JBF will pay for your parking. Just bring in your parking stub, and $8 will be taken off your total.
