Brooklyn Bodega Wants to Sell You a VMA Red Carpet Scrap


All he needs is one super-fan to “buy it now” and the owner of the Dubai Mini Mart, on Dean Street in Brooklyn, will turn a cool $5,000 profit just by collecting a bit of carpet that somebody left by his door. Pop stars filed past the Bodega into the Barclays Center on Sunday, and its employees grabbed a 12-by-12foot section of the red carpet now on eBay, the Daily News reports. If the scrap doesn’t sell by Monday ,the owner plans to carpet his basement with it. So far there are no bids.
