I started Carl's Car Shack the summer of 2014, once I secured all of the neccssary requirements to become an official business I took receipt of my first inventory item in October 2014.
We currently setup at two venues each year (currently 11 shows scheduled for 2021), sell through our website and the local club.
I've been collecting the Hot Wheels brand for almost 27 years, as I considered starting it as a business in 2012. At that time I was working 60-70 hours a week and just didn't see how it would work out.
Carl's Car Shack was born the summer of 2014, with operating through my business Facebook page. Which became very successful in a rapid amount of time. At the end of summer 2015 we had to have a warehouse built to better suit the growth. We carried the Hot Wheels and Matchobx brands until 2018 and we've expanded to multiple other brands.
For those who are new to Carl’s Car Shack or haven’t experienced my pre order system, this is how it works. I’ll post upcoming items with the price and ETA, all you have to do is follow the link and pay for those items. Once the product arrives and your order is ready to ship, I’ll send a final ticket with the shipping charge. I'm currently converting the store to automatically calculate the shipping for you. If you need to make other arrangements for payment please contact me ASAP. I am pretty easy to deal with and try to make it as easy as possible for you to get what you want.
Thank you and never hesitate to ask questions about a product or anything else you may need help with. I don’t claim to know everything, but I will do my best to get you an answer.
Carl's Car Shack consists of:
Valerie, Madison, Brad & Jennifer
My assistants you may see from time to time at the shows otherwise they work behind the scenes.
