Latest posts by Christine Haskell (see all)

Hard to tell if this qualifies as innovative or if it should be put in the “people-will-pay-for-anything” category…but I can say I’ve seen it all now.  I suppose it’s green, technically… I suppose it’s home based. Clearly niche, if you believe that only a small segment of the population would actually put money behind the temporary feeling of being petty.

‘but someone’s making money off of it! Here is some copy from their web site…I’d love to know what qualifies as a “special drying technique.”

Do you know someone who will be 30, 40 or 50 years old? Don’t let this birthday pass by without the gift they will remember forever. Whatever the occasion, your sentiments will be clearly expressed with Dead Roses. This expression of your thoughts will make a lasting impression. We will deliver your own personal message with your roses… The ideal way to let them know how you really feel.


Imagine the look on their face when they open the Priority Mail box to find a dozen Dead Roses! These are high quality roses, dried using a special drying technique to preserve the color and appearance of the rose. For only $24.99, with Free USPS Priority Mail shipping, you can make the statement you’ve been wanting to make for a long time. What if they’re not worth $24? Just send a half dozen for only $17.99 or a single Dead Rose for $10.99 The roses are shipped via USPS Priority Mail in a crush proof Priority Mail box.
