About Us

Hello, my name is Melissa.
I started KID MANIA, LLC in 2003.

I was a single mom who tried yard sales, newspaper ads, craigslist, etc., but didn’t get the money I hoped for my children’s new & gently used items. I tried other consignments and they took too much of my profits and took long to send me a check. So, I decided I wanted to help other women like myself and started a Consignment Pop-Up Sale that took a smaller consignor fee, accepted more items, and got a big payout FAST!  KID MANIA LLC was born and has been voted over the years as…

  • The Best of the Best for Children’s Clothing by The Washington Observer Reporter
  • The Best Consignment Sale in Western, PA by Consignment Mommies
  • The Best Consignment Sale in Pittsburgh by Consignment Mommies

KID MANIA’S Pop-Up Sales!

Consignors Retain MORE of their sales than a store or franchise pop up sale!   Their fees are lower, can sell MORE and receive a Fast Check!! (No worries fees going towards a monthly lease or franchise fee!)

Shoppers have a MUCH LARGER SELECTION with LOWER PRICES!   Consignor fees are low keeping prices low, Shoppers can actually see and touch items before they buy them and it’s much SAFER than Meet Ups!

It’s a win – win situation for the Consignor and Shopper!

Community & Sustainability

KID MANIA LLC is all about “Women Helping Women” and now even some Dad’s out there. I’m a MOM like YOU!  I’m super busy with 6 kids, a full time job and run this amazing sale!  Family time is precious and shouldn’t be tied down trying to sell your kids items online everyday.  I want to help you make some fast money and save big in just 3 Days!

Be part of our KID MANIA FAMILY and the Sustainable Fashion Movement.  Together we are keeping our kid’s items out of our landfills.  Recycle, Reduce and Reuse for the sake of our Kids’ Future!  #SustainableFashion

I hope to see you at one of our AMAZING Sales; you WON’T be disappointed!


This sale is dedicated in loving memory of my father, Art Lyon (1939-2009).

He believed in my mission of helping other mother’s like myself. In the beginning, KID MANIA gave back 100% of the consignors sales for several years!  My Dad created most of the racks, donated his time, supported and helped out at every event until his passing.

For all of you who were fortunate enough to meet him at one of the sales, know he was an incredible & generous man.  He inspired me with my mission and is deeply missed by our KID MANIA Family!

This sale would not be what it is today if it wasn’t for the wonderful support of my parents, husband, family, and KID MANIA Family (Consignors, Shoppers, Vendors & Helpers). From the bottom of my heart  I thank you ALL and hope I can provide many more years of service & helping our community!
