The Incredible Shrinking Industy (and how you can profit)…
Aug 19, 2005
Ever since the Beanie
Babies craze peaked in 2000 it’s been all downhill for the
Collectibles industry which has shrunk by almost half.
Fortunately for our members there is massive profit to be had
in the midst of all the destruction.
