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, will send autumn to you.  Well, some leaves at least.

According to

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.â€

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.


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.
