Tiffany & Co. is selling a $9,000 ball of yarn and everything is ridiculous

Tiffany & Co. is selling a $  9,000 ball of yarn and everything is ridiculousIt's unclear whether Tiffany & Co. is trolling or fishing for press, but they're definitely succeeding with the latter.  The luxury company unleashed a line of needlessly expensive everyday objects, appropriately named Everyday Objects. While ridiculously expensive pants and needlessly flashy objects have become somewhat of a mocking trend on the internet recently, Tiffany & Co. has pushed the envelope with this one.

It features a $ 1,500 Sterling silver coffee can, a $ 9,000 ball of yarn, and $ 350 straw.

There's a $ 375 ice cream scoop, a $ 300 silver yo-yo, and even a $ 600 Band-Aid box, which will
definitely make the Band-Aids heal your wounds faster. Of course, they slapped these normal objects with Sterling silver, putting "the signature Tiffany Blue® hue of this design’s enamel accent" on some.  The sad part: Rich people will actually shell out money for this stuff.  WATCH: Mopping with this gadget actually looks fun Every editorial product is independently selected by Mashable journalists.
