Wink too many !

I am a retired Parade float designer & builder and because of that was & am involved in a lot of parades & festival.
I was Pres. of Daffodill Festival in Tacoma, Puyallup, Sumner & Orting, Wa in 1991. As such, the people that where the head honcho of festivals from 1991 still get to gether for a weekend of just funeach year. 2008 will find us at Ocean Shores to harrase the natives.
We are called the " '91 Has Beens". We adopted the cheap Pink Flamingo for our mascot. We have a gift exchange every year and quess what the gift must be.? yup, a pink mouse. opps.

So after 16 years of getting more and more flamingo's, I do not know how many I have. Only 2 of the big plastic ones and every form of hanging, standing & what not you can imagine.
Guess I will have to get some out and take a photo or 2.

Just got a neon light flamingo for Christmas. Even my family gets in on the torture.

Keep pink.

Claude

My wife just found Union Products inc produced pink flamingos ...signed edition by Don Featherstone for $10.00 a pair. NEW. Look for them in Dollar General Stores. I bought a flock!!!

FYI, Union Products is now a trademark of Faster-Forms Inc.

Scott- I was trying to find Faster-Forms and had very little luck. Lots of AP stories on the sale of the molds but I just found out that J.C. Waszkiewicz had recently passed away. Still didn't find anywhere that they were in production or for sale. Do have any info to share? In know for a fact the the former owner of Union Products is developing a new flamingo but that may not happen for a long time. I have several of the original flamingos from the Union Plant actually signed with a black sharpie by Don and have work with him on my article for Airstream Life. Would love to get in touch with the new owners of the molds.

Rick

OK...info on the box sold at local (MS) Dollar General stores:

Union Products (r)
division of
=Faster-Form
Corporation
One Faster-Form Circle * New Hartford, NY 13413-0704
Toll Free: 800-327-3676 * Phone 315-792-9000 * Fax: 315-792-9543
Union Products is a registered trademark of Faster-Form Corporaiton (sic)

Hope this helps...but they do have one flamingo in the feeding position, the other is heads up, and both have the "signature" on them.

On eBay, I recently scored a set of signed Featherstone 50th anniversary flamingos in gold. These were made in preparation for Union Products upcoming 50th anniversary but they never went to market because the factory closed.

Hurray! I won't ask you what you paid for them. I got a bunch of colored ones. I guess I will bring the "Flock" to Chilly Man II.
