Now, the couple ships foliage across the world, with orders coming from as far away as England, Austria, and Israel.
Unlike the coolers loaded with snow, the Warings sell maple leafs collected in Vermont, New Hampshire, and Massachusetts in smaller quantities. A single preserved leaf will cost you $7.99, while a package of 10 runs $59.99. As any kid who has stuffed a leaf in their pocket knows, dead leaves crumble. That's why the Warings use a three-day process to encase each leaf with a resin.
If you don't miss the seasons, it's a nice reminder to step back and reacquaint yourself with what's unique and beautiful in your community. Unless you're thinking of how you can pull something like this off. In which case, know that no one wants your grass clippings. You'll have to do better than that.
