Desperate Enterprises’ Bob Secrist from 1969 dedicated himself to the life of an antique dealer, buying and selling one of the most extensive collections of nostalgic advertising in the US. In the ’80s, it became obvious to Bob that original advertising pieces were being sold to collectors at prices that made it impossible for most people. For this reason, he founded Desperate Enterprises with the primary mission to reproduce some of the most iconic advertising legacies as metal signs and make them available to all.
