Bad At Christmas Shopping? Good News, Nordstrom is Selling an $85 Rock.

Having a hard time figuring out what to get that special someone? How about a rock with a leather sleeping bag?

“I was going to get you tickets to a concert, but I saw this rock for $85. Fuck money, right!?”

Nordstrom describes the rock as such…

A paperweight? A conversation piece? A work of art? It’s up to you, but this smooth Los Angeles-area stone—wrapped in rich, vegetable-tanned American leather secured by sturdy contrast whipstitching—is sure to draw attention wherever it rests. A traditional hardening process gives the leather a beautiful ombré effect. Like all Made Solid leather pieces, this one is cut, shaped, sewn and finished by hand in artist Peter Maxwell’s Los Angeles studio. Using vintage leatherworking tools and traditional saddle-stitching techniques, Maxwell aims to create beautiful designs that embody both simplicity and functionality, and that develop rich character and patina over time.

So many gems in this description my eyes are bleeding. My dad jokes you could sell dried dog shit on QVC if you told people it got rid of back pain, and I think he may be right.
