If you can't beat the recession, wear it. That's the philosophy of Daniel Brabson, an enterprising Nashvillian who's found a way to put the "fun" in "fundamentally unchanging economic decline."
Brabson is one of the guiding lights behind Recession Junction
, an online store dedicated to making sweet lemonade of our current citrus avalanche. Their specialty is recession-themed clothing, bumper stickers and beer glasses. The apparel at Recession Junction is pretty much limited to T-shirts--shipping barrels is costly, y'know.
Brabson previously ran the beloved First Avenue dart parlor the Boardroom during its too-short life, and he was among the core group that helped save the Belcourt a decade ago. His brother James handles the designs. Already Recession Junction is drawing attention online
, so it's nice to know somebody's business is booming.
If only they could do well enough to put themselves out of an industry. Here's to Recovery Junction!
