Have you ever heard about an invention and thought…”I Should Have Thought of That!”? Well, then this is going to really tick you off! On your way home from work today, look down. You could be making money from the rocks on the sidewalk, the parking lot or street!
No really! Floyd Hayes is.
Floyd lives in Brooklyn and for $4 you too can have a piece of the borough; a small rock that he is picking up all over the borough… as Floyd says on Etsy.com where he is selling it.
A 100% genuine Piece of Brooklyn as hand-picked from the streets of the coolest borough in the world!
Brooklyn has been an inspiration for the UK born artist and he has left no stone unturned (get it?) in getting your piece of the borough to you…it comes in a clear plastic box and is stamped for authenticity.
And, guess what? He’s selling them to people all over the country! My mom was born in Williamsburg and I was totally sucked into getting her a piece of her childhood for only $4!
But, yes, we were a little peeved that none of us had thought of such a simple entrepreneurial concept… isn’t that the way with all the creative inventions? So we called Floyd to let him know and it turns out he’s got a great heart to go with his concept. $1 from every sale is donated to the Brooklyn Arts Council.
