A CLASSIFIED ACT

Two brothers who love to buy and sell items through the classifieds detail their exploits in "The Classified Guys", a column that appears in 115 newspapers and is syndicated by Universal Press Syndicate in Kansas City, MO.

"We are classified-shopping enthusiasts," says Todd "Carry" Holze. "Ever since we were kids, Duane and i loved a good deal, and bought and sold things through the classifieds." Their strategy is to check the classifieds for great deals, enjoy the merchandise for a while, thenr esell it at the ame price - or perhaps even make a profit. The advice works particularly well for sports equipment.

"If you've always wanted to scuba dive, here's the way to [get equipment]," Holze points out.

The weekly column can be downloaded from www.ClassifiedGuys.com. Cash and Carry answer readers' questions, talk about negotiating skills, and relate funny stories.

It all started when the two former engineers decided to self-publish a book called 50% Off! How to Find Great Deals. The talked it up on radio shows and approached The Danbury News-Times, their local paper, with the idea for the column. Todd and Duane provide marketing materials and are available for local radio shows and personal appearances. Last August, they were the warm-up act at a George Carlin concert in Wallingford, Conn., sponsored by The Hartford Courant to promote its Courant Classified section.
