Bummer Baskets


Bummer Baskets is a Brooklyn-based web-shop that sells care packages for unfortunate life events. The packages combine fun products like “eat out of the take-out container” chopsticks with delicious baked-goods like our Bummer Brownies and a personalized greeting card.

The idea was born out of trauma as founder, Scott Laborsky, hid under his kitchen table fearing bed bugs had invaded his apartment for a second time. It was one of those nights where New York City was suddenly overwhelming: absurdly expensive rent, unreliable transportation, and microscopic bugs capable of severe psychological and financial damage – a city too often full of bummers. His only comfort was that the city is home to all his friends, there to talk him down from panic.
