For now, there doesn't seem to be any supply issues.
“At this rate, it’s going to be July until the snow melts,” said founder Kyle Waring to Boston.com. “But I’ve thought about taking this idea and running with it for other seasonal items. Maybe I’ll ship some fall foliage.”
Some shipments might arrive as water, the site admits. There are no refunds.
