Storage Wars: NY
Olsen has been a main player with Courtney Wagner in the hit reality show, Storage Wars: New York. On the show, Olsen is partners with longtime friend Courtney Wagner, forming the team "C&C". They specialize in vintage clothing which they sell from their C&C Pop-up Shop, a flaming-banana yellow van. Despite being relatively new to the "auction game", and having less money than their more well-seasoned counterparts, they are known to have proven that they can play hard, often using their "feminine wiles" to get them ahead.
C&C Pop-up Shop
Olsen and Wagner founded C&C Pop-up Shop in 2012, which is a mobile and roaming pop-up shop that sells vintage "upcycled" items. Based from a yellow van which the shop has become renowned for, to keep overhead costs low, it passes through many locations such as the Brooklyn Night Bazaar, Brooklyn Flea, Fort Greene and Williamsburg, the Music Hall of Williamsburg, the Bell House in Brooklyn, Artists and Fleas, and the Hester Street Fair on the LES and on the streets of Greenpoint. The owners find various vintage items to sell in storage lockers, estate sales, and even on the city streets.
