LOUISVILLE, KY (WAVE) - Think about your closet right now. Chances are you have a lot of things in there that you never wear. That was the concept behind a sale going on Saturday, July 20 called My Girlfriend's Closet.

Friends Brighid Homrighausen, a preschool teacher, and Nan Christ, who's in sales, came up with the idea.

"I got a call from Brighid talking about how full her closet was," explained Christ.

They put out the word to friends who came with armfuls of clothes that they never wear from their closet.

Those items will all be available to buy on Saturday from 8:30 a.m. to 4:30 p.m. at the Mellwood Arts Center. 

Once the item sells the split is 70 percent for the former owner, 30 percent for Homrighausen and Christ.

To sell your clothes at the sale it's $25 if you tag and price the items, $100 if they do it.

There are some deals to be had, and everything is new or worn once or twice.

Available items include a Diane Von Furstenberg dress for $25, shorts for $5 and even a Dolce and Gabbana winter coat, still with tags, that was once $900 now selling for $120.

The women are planning another sale in the fall.

Clothes that don't sell will be donated to Cedar Lake Lodge.
