Markets in Everything: Getting Leaves Shipped from New England

Can’t fit traveling to New England to see the fall foliage into your travel calendar?

No worries–for $19.99, ShipFoliage.com will send autumn to you.  Well, some leaves at least.

According to Time.com:

It’s gimmicky, of course, but maybe not quite as much as you’d think. According to the website, the leaves aren’t just snaked from the backyard and stuffed in an envelope; they “undergo a unique preservation process” that ensures “your leaves will last for years to come.”

But if you had dreams of diving into leaf piles, I’m about to crush them.

The $19.99 cost includes three leaves.

The three leaves will last you a long time, but if you wanted to make it rain foliage, you’ll have to fork over close to a thousand dollars.

NoThanks

For anyone looking for an alternative route, I’m more than happy to ship you some of the leaves from my backyard for the much lower price of $200 per box.

I know, I know.  I’m pretty much giving it away.  But I’m kind like that.
