What do taxi drivers in New York City buy their girlfriends and wives for Valentine's Day? Hopefully, anything but this. Granted we love it, but a $250 silver taxicab receipt doesn't exactly say "I Love You." It's little more hardcore; it's something we could envision Kelly Cutrone wearing, if only it had like an extra silver claw pendant dangling with it too.
For those who like to wear their commute around their necks, it's available over at The Future Perfect, and this true-to-size receipt is handcrafted of sterling silver and rubber cord by the designer Kristin Victoria Barron. We kind of want it, but now we're going to hold out for whoever makes a gold crumpled up Metrocard. What do you think?
