LOUISVILLE, KY (WAVE) - With the kids back in school with lots of new clothes and supplies, many families are looking to add some cash back into their budget and an easy way to do that is to purge the old wardrobes.

At Another Time Around consignment store in Middletown it's a constant flow of new merchandise. "It's like Christmas every day," owner Shelly Briones said.

Over 3,000 people now consign at her store and the take home is pretty impressive.

Most consignment clothes sell for about 50% of what it would cost new.  People who consign can expect to make between 20 and 50 percent of the selling price.

Shelly says that some take home checks as high as $300 a month, but a more typical take-home would be $50 to $100.
