There is a Winter Sale in Colorado! A couple has created mounds out of snow they shoveled in their backyard and are now offering the snow from the two blizzards for 99cents. The catch – they do not ship.. so you have to go to their backyard and pick it up! 🙂 As if the neighbors dont have their own mounds!!
Jim and Mary Walker are selling snow on eBay. Starting bids were holding steady Friday at 99 cents for samples from “Blizzard I and Blizzard II.”
The Walkers got the idea for selling snow after shoveling mounds from two storms a week apart that together dumped more than 4 feet along the Front Range.
“I figured eBay has ghosts and all sorts of weird stuff, so why not snow?” said Mary Walker, who teaches business workshops on employee communications.
How much snow 99 cents or whatever the winning bid gets depends. Walker’s auction notice suggests avoiding shipping and handling charges by stopping by their home and picking it up — in a dump truck.
Only 10 offerings of snow are available and the proceeds are earmarked for a used snowblower for Jim or a pair of shovels.
