What Our Customers Are Saying about Our Original Pink Flamingos (Set of 2) …
"We used to see these when we were very young and everyone made fun of them. My son moved to Virginia and we sent him a pair about 10 years ago. They are still on his front lawn as a joke. The neighbors love them, and if he tries to "retire" them, they talk him out of it. He puts Santa hats on them at Christmas. They've faded to pale pink -- but he just can't not have flamingos. I found these and now he can retire mom and pop. They are so homely and tacky that they're cute. The neighborhood will love them!" - Elizabeth McBurney, Anaheim, CA
"Five couples, all originally from Rhode Island now living in Beverly Hills, Florida. We did not know each other until we met at church. My husband and I had many pink flamingos in our yard. Once when a couple went to Rhode Island for vacation, we placed a pair of flamingos in their yard to greet them upon their return home. We then started bringing them to other couples' homes. They were always dressed for the occasion: birthday hats, flowers, whatever. It got to be a tradition that the flamingos moved around Beverly Hills to "celebrate" with the friends. Our pastor's wife, not from Rhode Island, stated that she loved the idea, so we delivered the flamingos to her house. She was thrilled that she had finally received a visit from the flamingos. A few months later, the pastor and his family went back to Alabama. One day a big package arrived for all the Rhode Islanders. In it were 5 stuffed flamingos with hearts from the pastor and his family. We still all have these remembrances." - Evelyn, Beverly Hills, FL
"I love the fun atmosphere that flamingos bring to your yard. We even take them to the beach to put in front of our beach tent. These birds let other people know that you don't take yourself too seriously and can have some fun!" - Beth Mathison, Cartersville, GA
"Pink flamingos! If there is anything that is more iconic of the American garden, I don't know what it could possibly be. Idiotic, charming, just plain dumb . . . no matter what one may think or say about them, pink flamingos just don't let one pass them by without reaction, and it's usually a smile or two. I think I'm going to have a whole flock for my new flower plantings in my front yard!" - Megan Lindberg, Eureka, CA
"This is "Florence and Chet's" second year at our house and I love how we are always getting comments about them. We have a Polish last name, so naturally I had to get them! They are holding their pretty color and look so sweet together under the flowering hydrangea tree in front of our house. A stranger actually stopped to ask where I got them. She's absolutely right when she said they look like the ones she remembers from childhood. Even though they are "kitschy," they have an elegance about them." - Karen Nowak, Orchard Park, NY
"One year for Christmas I had caroling flamingos in the yard. Some just had hats, others coats and top hats. But my best was the grand dame of them all. She had a black and white fur coat, a red purse and a red hat. Oh, the looks they got. - Sarah, Baltimore, MD
