Brian Jones joins us today to share his story and how he started selling leg lamps from the movie A Christmas Story out of his apartment. A few years after that he bought the house from the movie A Christmas Story and used that purchase to build a relationship with Warner Bros selling officially licensed products from the movie. Today he runs multiple ecommerce websites but is focused on A Christmas Story and National Lampoon's Christmas Vacation with roughly 70% of all of his sales coming in the months of November and December.
Brian has been selling since 2003 and we talk about how he got started and slowly grew his business to where it is today. Brian's story is a lot of fun especially if you have an appreciation for 80's Christmas movies.
