Up until the 1950's the way families on Delmarva got cash money for the winter and Christmas was by making Holly wreaths. I think my grandmother told me they got between five cents to ten cents a wreath. One buyer of these greens and wreaths in 1916 was Elam K. Woodoth of Philadelphia who ran these ads in local papers.
A good writeup of the Holly Making Industry on the Delmarva is Megan Torrey's paper called "Run Forest Run". The Holly Wreath Industry part starts on page 8
