We love the name of Martin's blog: "Things I Find in the Garbage". Why sugarcoat it?
Martin is 27, lives in Montreal, and roams the neighborhoods for the treasures that people throw out into their garbage. As you see can see in the photos he's posts each week, he's finding gorgeous vintage, one-of-a-kind items. IN THE TRASH. This is true scavenger style.
Starting out casually, he was selling at yard sales and Craigslist for extra cash. But recently, he's been selling more and more on eBay. Check out his store to see the prices he's getting. No one is laughing at this kid. Why hustle to get a 9-5 job he hates if he could keep growing this business?
In this interview, Martin walks us through his process and his constant evolving as an eBay seller.
He mentions a cool resource at Reddit's "What is this thing?" that he uses to identity mysteries in the garbage.
If you have any questions for Martin about digging in the garbage, just leave them in the comments and he'll be glad to answer them.
