I used to be a candle maker that wholesaled and made custom designs for gift shops in Vegas. The economy took a toll and ruined the businesses in Vegas shops that were forced to close down. So, I started selling them on ebay till the novelty of the designs wore off after 2 years of doing very well. I was forced to find another way of making money which led me to storage units. That too was a market that was ruined due to a show called storage wars that glorified the business in finding treasures that were rarely found and made the public think it was an easy way to get rich. Sales of storage units sky rocketed and left a lot of rookie buyers penniless with the 90 percent garbage found in units. My hunting skills did come in handy after learning all the things that sell on ebay with the units I did buy when I was in the business. This helped me be a picker in yard sales and swap meets. It is an obsessive business to get into. I wonder where it will all lead to next.
