Mario Halkyer's Profile
Hello, and thank you for visiting my Etsy store! My name is Mario Halkyer, but my friends and neighbors call me THE RECYCLER.
I was born in New Mexico and raised for a time in Texas. At the young age of 16, I went to live with my brother, who was in the Navy and stationed at the Bethesda Medical Center. Eventually I moved to our nation’s capital, Washington, D.C. I was recruited into fatherhood when only 20, and found myself hustling for jobs. I was always trying get-rich schemes, but as the saying goes, you don’t get something for nothing—and I pretty much got nothing.
When we lived in Texas, my mother took me to flea markets and yard sales every weekend. Eventually we set up shop at some of the local trade fairs. This gave me a taste for renewing and reselling what others tossed aside, and while living in D.C., I quickly learned the ins and outs of picking up good stuff on Bulk pick-up days (trash days)…
