The $1,000 Tin Can

The rich are different from you and I. They know a hint of turquoise, no matter how subtle, adds a immeasurable value to an object, even an object that the rest of us just toss out with the garbage. In case you happen to have more money than sense, you can now buy a tin can from Tiffany's. For a thousand dollars. The description of this can goes:

The Everyday Objects collection transforms utilitarian items into handcrafted works of art. A classic tin can is upgraded in sterling silver and shining vermeil.

    Sterling silver and vermeil with Tiffany Blue® enamel accent
    4.5" high
    Instantly recognizable, the signature Tiffany Blue® hue of this design’s enamel accent has been as iconic as the brand itself since its founding in 1837

However, if you already have a tin can, the other items in their Everyday Objects collection include a $9,000 ball of yarn, a $175 golf tee, and a $350 crazy straw, among other items. -via Uproxx 


Meanwhile, from the other end of the spectrum, I was at Walmart today and in the Clearance Aisle I saw little bags of rocks for $2.50. Not fancy, neon-colored, uniform-sized fishtank gravel. These were odd-shaped, plain, brown rocks that you could pick up in the parking lot for free.
