I don’t often get interviewed for much, but this was a very cool experience to be interviewed by Sally Herships who is a journalist at NPR (APR) Marketplace. The original interview with me was about 20 minutes long and touched on a variety of topics. I have a very small segment at the beginning, but it captures the transition of ARCH from being a hobby to when it became my full time. The rest of the interview deals with collectors and the Sneaker Pawn shop in New York.
If you visit this site daily then you know that I don’t actually agree with the title. The market has shifted and is probably more balanced than it’s been in 20 years. While it’s not red hot, it is a solid business opportunity for those with the right connections, patience and perseverance. Here is the interview below.
