His new business model of buying and reselling purses looks like it will be a hit.

So much so that he has already bought another business, a successful purse blog in order to use their audience to drive more sales. I knew when I first talked to him that he’d be continuing to grow businesses, but I never thought he’d go from the Cash for Gold King to the Cash for Purses..ummm.. Queen?
