A Wisconsin teenager has hit the big time with his ugly Christmas sweater business.

It began three years ago, when 18-year-old Jack McCarthy started collecting sweaters at flea markets, thrift stores and yard sales.

It's so big now, the business has taken over the basement.

"There were moments, though, I suppose where I was concerned there was more stock than we would get rid of and I would never get my basement back," his mom Cathy said.

The sweaters sell for between $20 and $50 on UltimateUglyChristmas.com.

Right now, he's shipping about 40 sweaters every day
