It’s a rock from Nordstrom, and it’s wrapped up in leather. It is selling for $85, and so many people are purchasing it that it was temporarily sold out earlier until they miraculously came up with more rocks to sell and wrapped those rocks in leather. Now, those new rocks from Nordstrom are selling for $85 a pop, and people are buying them like hot cakes.
This is a rock. It has leather knickers. It costs $85 at Nordstrom. This is entirely normal. pic.twitter.com/kWY8WU8QXn

What are you supposed to do with this rock? Well, that’s up for interpretation, though Nordstrom does offer up a few ideas:
“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.”
