Joseph Ades aka The Peeler Man could sell anything but selling vegetable peelers on the union square (New York) was his passion. He sold potato peelers for 5 US-Dollars each and became a millionaire. One of the kindest man who looked like an actor from a movie of fairy tale. A millionaire that actually deserves every penny for his hard work. He unfortunately died on Sunday February 1, 2009. RIP.
Never underestimate a small amount of money gathered by hand for 60 years
