Our pal TJ Brustowicz, whose runs all the outdoor movies we enjoy in the area each summer, sent Patch a tip that sales have been heating up for pet rocks with the Giants emblem painted on top in a certain neighborhood.
He tells us his kids -- Jack and Abby -- have been settting up shop in front of their house over the last few weekends to sell their decorated rocks and business, he tell us, has been brisk.
Brustowicz writes in an e-mail: "They had made up signs, and as cars drove by they were yelling out 'Pet rocks for sale, 25 cents a pet rock!' I cracked up and let them roll with their little venture. After about an hour out there they had made 5 bucks. They set up shop again the next weekend, and raised their prices. The last couple of weeks they were selling hot chocolate, too. Over the last four weekends they have made close to a $100! Rocks decorated with the NY Giants logo have been big sellers, to say the least."
We hear they'll back out on Riverdale Avenue West this weekend if you need any last minute Giants souveniers.
