Hi! I'm Dane Carlson, and welcome to the Business Opportunities Weblog. I've been publishing this website, by myself, and sometimes with the help of others for over twelve years now. You'll notice two things about this site right away:

  • We have tons of content. In fact, since November 2011, I've published more than 26,000 posts on thousands of different business ideas and opportunities.
  • We don't sell much advertising. In late 2013, I realized that by selling advertising, what I was really selling was my readers. In 2014, I've already radically cut down on the number of ads and will hopefully keep cutting.

Entrepreneur Daily:

After years of being frowned upon, the secondhand clothing industry is making a comeback.

Economic uncertainty is one reason many parents are flocking to them for back-to-school shopping rather than spending big bucks at department stores. But in general, secondhand clothing is becoming more acceptable, with nicer shops sprouting up across the country, offering upscale brands at lower prices.

According to America’s Research Group, about 15 percent of people shop at a resale or consignment store at least once a year.

The National Association of Resale & Thrift Shops says the secondhand industry has been increasing five percent each year for the past decade.
