Custom Caskets, Kitchen Cabinets & Email: Whatever It Takes To Survive in a Down Market

Mortgage and Lending with SUNSTREET MORTGAGE, LLC (BK-0907366, NMLS 145171) NMLS 223495

Kitchen Cabinets & Custom Coffins: Mike in Tucson, Mortgage LenderCustom Woodworking.

Custom Caskets.  Okay.  ...but then I read the rest of the rest of the sign!

  • Custom Caskets
  • Kitchen Cabinets
  • Cedar Chests
  • Gun Cabinets
  • Cremation Urns
  • Email!

Tuesday afternoon found me north of Arizona in Utah.  You know I always have my camera with me, and this sign made me hit the brakes, look in my rear view mirror, and make a U-Turn!

This Utah entrepreneur has something for you from the cradle to the grave.

I'm surprised the sign didn't say "High Chairs," or "Rocking Chairs." 

Not content to rely on his trade for income in this down market, he's branching out as an old fashioned Internet provider.

  • Email?  You don't have your own access?

When was the last time you saw an advertisement to come set a spell and log onto the internet to check your email?  Don't you wonder what it costs?

I just might call that phone number later to find out more.  ...unless you do first, and write your own blog post about this guy.  If you do, send me a link.  Feel free to copy the photo.

(I'm going out on a limb with the gender classification, but then who would name a daughter "Fig?")

How disappointing!

I though they were building coffins and urns with e-mail. 8>(

HI MIKE!  Love signs like this -- I think it's humorous that they put gun and caskets on the same sign! -- Gab

Thanks for commenting.  I hadn't made that connection!


I wonder if the email service is actually from the coffin?  Just in case...

Mike, it is so funny.  I guess Fig has to do what she has to do, hey at least she draws your attention!

Well, right below email, I see their email address.  I wonder if that's what it meant.  Hmm, I thought my eyes were failing..  ;-)

Hi Mike - Fig appears to be quite the mutli-tasker. What a beautiful setting his business is in. Where in Utah?

Mike - that is indeed an interesting assortment of items that are offered in the same location! I guess people do whatever it takes to survive in this economy and that is a good thing.

Have you called the number?


Somewhere north of the AZ border, and south of Lake Powell.


Did you call?


Thanks for asking!  Dani is okay, and serving in Afghanistan.


Looking at it again, I guess they just meant to highlight their email address, didn't they?  Sleepy...


Especially around halloween!


Call 'em up!

Rita, you think someone named their daughter "Fig?"


I guess!  We didn't stop and go in.  Now I wish I had done so.
