Spotted pink flamingo lights at Big Lots today, also solar lighted color changing flamingo lawn ornaments. And a flamingo that dances and sings, at the same store.

There were some interesting ones in the Town Hardware store in Black Mountain, NC also.

Many thanks to those who mentioned Dollar General as a place to get pink flamingos.

I popped across the border yesterday to do a wee bit of shopping in upper NY State when I spotted a Dollar General. Went in and to my utter delight - there were boxes of beautiful pink flamingos!! At a great price too ($10 per pair).

I declared the nature of my purchases coming back across the border and for a brief moment the Customs Officer actually thought I was bringing real flamingos into Canada...

Of course it really does not seem fair that those folks who live near General Dollar and Family Dollar stores get to buy new flamingos and those of us here in the New England area are skunked!

Yea we tried that but we don't get a reply. I can see from their map there are over two hundred in New York but the site doesn't tell us of the closest one. I did contact the National Sales Manager for the new Union Products and he did give me an offer hard to refuse but what am I going to do withh 100 pairs of flamingos? Stay tuned for photos of our NEU Chilli Man Rally.

Flamingo-go-round

Being an artist, as some my know, we sometimes go a little crazy. Ideas can cascade into interesting places. I was playing with the 3d program Sketchup and this is what it lead to. I though it would be cool to actually build one.
