I am crushed. We bought ours at the JC Factory Store and now to find out they aren't originals. What is the world coming to when one American Icon doesn't support another American Icon! No wonder they went out of business. It's the story of American manufacturing. China's economy is emerging at the cost of the American worker. How much longer 'till we start buying Airstreams built in China...hey, the quality might actually go up!

Almost extinct

I started thinking and realized I probably should order some back-up flamingos in case Lucy and Ricky decide to migrate. I just talked to this company, MasterGardening, a real person on the phone. He said these are the real Don Featherstone (http://www.mastergardening.com/gif-9001.html) and they are going REALLY REALLY FAST. And the price is the same as I paid months ago. For $12.95 a pair you too might be able to get the last of them.

Pink is Dead

OK- This is really going crazy! I had just purchased 50 pairs of Don's flamingos for $10.95 a pair. I just contacted both of my suppliers and they are out of stock; GONE! What is this world coming too? If I find another supplier I will post it immediatly. PLEASE beware of knock-offs!

Yeah, at that price I'll have a whole flock out on my front yard and be the envy of the neighborhood! With the Airstream in the drive way they would really think I'm a millionaire!

Mike-

Funny you said that, I was thinking the exact same thing. I hate to think we will have to chain our Flamingo's to our Airstreams! Here, you can have my generator but not my Flamingo's!
