And good news, the latest "shipping spree" is here just in time for fall. Yep, this company offers to send you a package of New England fall foliage for the low, low price of $19.99.
According to the company's website, leaves are hand-collected by foliage experts and packaged in sets of three. We're not making this up.
By the way, this is from the same people who shipped 218 boxes of Boston snow to people all across the U.S. last winter — for $89 a box.
"Eighty-nine dollars. What are you going to do with that? Snow cones?" the hosts of the "Today" show said.
But if you're not one to embrace the seasons, other startup shipping businesses would probably love to gain your business.
