2019 Special Guest Announced: Dave Hester
Idaho's Largest Garage Sale recently announced their newest special guest for the 2019 event. Dave Hester, star of the hit television series, "Storage Wars" on A&E, will be coming to their summer's premiere outdoor sale event!
A summary on A&E's website describes the world-wide sensation salesman as:
"Strict and disciplined, Dave runs a tight ship at his Rags to Riches consignment store. He’s a big fish in the game and has made his money from blood, sweat and tears.
In 2005, after being convicted of a DUI, Dave was forced into community service at a local Goodwill Store. Seeing the potential in such an operation, the then furniture store owner transformed his operation into a thrift store. The idea changed his life.
The son of a military man and train collector, Dave sold his hoarder father’s train collection for a small fortune. (It took him five years to sell the whole collection… it was that big.) He says he’s the total opposite of his father: simple, clean, no clutter, all business.
Of all the characters, Dave has the largest operation with the largest overhead. He needs every purchased container to produce a profit to feed his massive machine of over 15 employees. Pickers will come to his store to buy art at a low price, but Dave sells his pieces at true price: upwards of $150,000"
Want to meet Dave? Be sure to come to Idaho's Largest Garage Sale on Sat., May 18 from 7 a.m.-5 p.m.
