WTF? Looking to buy a classy pet rock this holiday season? rock -SOLD OUT online

Recommended Posts

Looking to buy a classy pet rock this holiday season? Believe it or not, a lot of people were.

An $85 leather-wrapped stone -- yes, you read that right -- has sold out at Nordstrom's online store after going viral on social media. A smaller version, sensibly priced at $65 for the budget-conscious rock lover, is also out of stock.

"A paperweight? A conversation piece? A work of art? It's up to you," reads the description at the Nordstrom online store.

It goes on in over-the-top detail: "This smooth Los Angeles-area stone -- wrapped in rich, vegetable-tanned American leather secured by sturdy contrast backstitching -- is sure to draw attention wherever it rests."

The leather pouch was designed in Los Angeles using "traditional saddle-stitching techniques." The rock is courtesy of, well, the Earth. So don't expect yours to look just like the online image. "Each piece is unique and will vary slightly," the listing notes. Rocks these days.

Nordstrom (JWN) told CNN the rocks "are indeed real items for sale." While the online supply of rocks was exhausted, there were still two small rocks available at Nordstrom's Michigan Avenue store in Chicago.

This is why society will collapse.  When people buy rocks for money we are doomed. I can say yes diamonds are and other gemstones are worth $$$. But this right here is  nuts!!!

LOL

The only thing worse than a rock for a gift is a rock covered in glitter. That crap never goes away!

I have a feeling their target consumers are snowflakes. They might toss their Christmas presents at unsuspecting family members come January 21 st.
