Pots of fresh air from the British countryside now for sale on eBay!

It is now possible to buy a pot of “fresh air”, direct from the British countryside, thanks to a novelty gift shop on eBay! Fun Favours are selling the pots, which contain air lovingly harvested from the Shropshire countryside, for £1 apiece. This now means that city-goers many miles away from rolling green fields can get their fix, courtesy of a handy, foil-fresh pot. The owner of Fun Favours, Rachel Moorcroft, uses machinery left over from a business making alcoholic jelly shots to package the air. It is advised to refrigerate the pots, as it contributes to a fresher and more refreshing smell when opened.Enjoy the Shropshire fresh air with Fur Feather & Fin range of country clothing Rachel has reportedly sold just under 40 pots of fresh air, with the majority being to people in the UK. However, she has had buyers from as far away as America and Australia. However, this isn’t the first time that someone has “harvested” fresh air and sold it on. In 2014, a Chinese artist sold a jar of fresh mountain air from France for nearly £500, as a way of taking a stance against a businessman who sold millions of cans of air after pollution levels rocketed in Beijing. Rachel has released her product as a bit of fun, and says that everything she designs is done with humour at the heart of it. So, if you are craving the smell of the countryside, you can now buy it at the touch of a button! Alternatively, you may wish to experience the real thing for yourself, so why not head out into the Great British countryside in style with our range of country clothing?   Photo courtesy of Marion Dutcher, under Creative Commons
