An Artist Is Making Lots of Money Selling Genuine New York City Garbage


Artist Justin Gignac says the success of the product demonstrates “the importance of package design.” He’s probably right, but also, between this and the company bottling tap water, we’re thinking it also proves that there are endless “sell free stuff for money” business opportunities out there waiting to be realized.

New York Fume Balloons debut on the Internet next week for $34.99. “From the City That Never Sleeps, a Balloon Full of Fumes That Never Seeps.”
