WAUWATOSA, WI (KCTV) -
A Wisconsin teen is cashing in on an ugly holiday tradition - Christmas sweaters.
When teenage boys take to the basement for hours at a time, moms start to worry. Unless you are the mother of 18-year-old Jack McCarthy. His obsession in his parents' Wauwatosa basement revolves around Christmas sweaters so tacky some people find them beautiful.
Since selling his first one three years ago, Jack McCarthy has made a ton of money.
"We sold it on EBay and it went for about $50 and we were surprised that sweaters would have that kind of market," he said.
Inspired by that revelation, Jack McCarthy built his stockpile at every flea market, thrift store and yard sale across six different states.
