The photo above shows only a minor fraction of the items available at this Oregon junk yard/thrift store. In this detail alone, there is enough office equipment for a good start to furnish a business employing at least five people. The commercial grade popcorn maker alone is a money-maker!
These items are most likely available at greatly reduced prices because local businesses failed. There aren't enough people who can afford the goods or services or the event where popcorn would be sold. Is there someone who can afford to start a business - create jobs - even with deeply discounted materials? Could that enterprise be sustained? Probably not.
I take it back - trickle down doesn't work. Not from my point of view.
