He’s a Craigslist Scavenger

Craigslist Scavenger

In this post on the Priceonomics Blog, Ryan Finlay recounts his business: Craigslist scavenger.

The scrap yard’s electromagnetic steel excavator picked up my two steel die cast molds and put them on the scale. 1,240 pounds of steel! That meant $179.80 in my wallet for an hour of work. Not bad considering I picked them up on the free section of Craigslist.

I make my living on Craigslist. It’s the only business I’ve ever started that didn’t fail.
