Dave Schmidt‚ a man who born with Down Syndrome, managed to sell over 520 handfuls of confetti since opening his business on Sunday, TshisaLIVE reported.

According to the 30-year-old man from Durban, he loves making confetti and he sells it because people want it.

Dave's shop opened its online doors on 26 August and South Africans just loved it. According to his sister-in-law, Derryn Schmidt, Dave's love for confetti started after he helped out at her bridal company.

Schmidt explained she and a friend started the company and enlisted Dave's help in making confetti for the weddings.

However, Dave made so much confetti in two years that the piles of tiny pieces of paper grew taller than him- and that's when they knew it was time to open a business for him.

Although it's Dave business, the family helps out- his parents, who are also the production managers, provided him with a home office and his sister, Robyn‚ handles his finances and online orders.

Dave hopes to make enough money to visit his sister in Cape Town, but Briefly.co.za learned he just wants to share his confetti with SA.
