CHICAGO (CBS) — Chris Knight was trying to make his living as a photographer until almost a year ago. And then came the flags.
“And then came the flags. It just steamrolled, honestly. Every flag I made was selling better than the flag before.”
He started making flags out of distressed wood.
“The first flag I made was the Chicago flag… You know, being from Chicago. And I have more variations of the Chicago flag than any other flag.
“I have Chicago flags with skylines on the top. I have Chicago flags with skylines on the actual flag… And I’ve sold more overall with all those different styles, I’ve sold more of Chicago than anything else.
“But you’d be surprised that other places love their flag. Maryland is the second most popular flag.”
Knight also makes signs for businesses, but the flags are his bread and butter.
