(Scroll down for video) A man in Massachusetts, said that he is earning a nice amount of money by collecting dried up fall leaves and selling them online.
Kyle Waring of Somerville, Massachusetts, launched the website shipfoliage.com and sends packages of hand-picked leaves for U.S. customers.
In just one week, he managed to make over 200 sales. Waring hand-picks three leaves, a red, yellow, and green, and places them in a package.
Waring said that he came up with the idea while watching a television show about earning money with his wife. He thought about selling leaves because fall in Boston is especially beautiful and really hits an emotional chord.
“We’ll ship authentic New England foliage to anyone, on your behalf. All leaves are collected from New England and undergo a unique preservation process. The process enhances the foliage color contrast and also preserves the leaves for years to come,” Waring wrote on his website.
“Each bundle of leaves is color balanced, 1 red, 1 yellow and 1 mixed-color leaf. Mixed colored leaves are especially challenging to find, and are by far the rarest leaves with the tightest window to process and preserve. These beautiful maple leaves will put a smile on anyone’s face, try gifting foliage to a friend today,” Waring said.
