With seemingly everything costing more these days, local families are finding new ways to save money.
Savvy shoppers are finding a way to save a buck by shopping at second-hand and consignment stores.
While many stores and retailers are hurting, the owner of Encore Shop and Gallery says her business is up.
She says just because shoppers are cutting costs, doesn't mean they have to sacrifice quality.
And if you're not looking to spend money, but want to make some...you can also bring in your items to encore to sell.
The store consigns clean, freshly laundered, seasonally appropriate clothes, as well as furniture, home goods, and many other items.
