A Great Recession Requires a Great Sense of Humor: That's Why We Launched RecessionWreaths.com

Share Article

RecessionWreaths.com was launched in early December in the Adirondack mountains of Upstate New York by a group of very funny (but disgruntled) real estate agents looking for a way to stay busy (employed)...and perhaps make people laugh!

The 'Cut-Up Credit Card Wreath' featuring maxed out credit cards cut up into snowflake patterns!

The only way to get through this recession is with a sense of humor" says Grant. "If you're in real estate right now, you've got a better shot at selling a wreath, than selling a house!" That's why we launched www.RecessionWreaths.com. Its gallows humor!

The fact that most real estate agents have a better chance of selling a wreath right now, than actually selling a house, also played a role in their decision.

Our first, and now hugely popular 'Cut-Up Credit Card' Wreath came about after a bunch of our agents pulled their useless credit cards out of their wallets and threw them into a pile. The inspiration to cut these cards up into an attractive snowflake pattern and glue them to a balsam wreath came later, like so many great ideas.

The 'Credit Card' Wreath was quickly followed by another popular theme - The 'Nothing Says You're Fired! Pink Slip' wreath adorned with pink termination slips from some of America's largest Fortune 500 companies.

This was soon followed by our 'Down On Your Luck - Scratch-Off Lotto Ticket' Wreath decorated with hundreds of losing lotto tickets. This wreath required the cooperation of several hundred agents (all scratching in unison) in a desperate bid to reverse their fortunes.

Like so many great internet start-ups, http://www.RecessionWreaths.com is powered by unbridled creative passion, coupled with no funding.

But we do have a sense of humor...
