People Are All About These Pocketed, Pet Rocks—What??

     It’s St. Nick’s season, and shoppers are scurrying to pick up that perfect gift. This year, the rock’s all the rage—this one’s packed in a pouch! (wow.)

It’s a mystery as to why anyone would spend $85 (yeah, that’s the price) on a simple stone. It’s not like the rock’s a relic from some lost civilization. For almost a hundred dollars, you get a 3” X 4.5” X 2” stone sitting in a vegetable-tanned leather pouch.

But, hey, according to Nordstrom’s on-line copy, it’s not just a rock placed in a pouch: “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.”

And people really went for this rock, as it’s now sold out. If you end up shaking a gift that’s seemingly heavy yet small, it might be the latest in luxury bric-a-brac.
