We've had fun finding things for the Airstream at consignment shops, but we are going for the more minimalist, modernist interior, and less is more. And, I think given that the trailers are about exploring other places, we haven't limited ourselves to US made items- A couple of Alessi items I really like for the shape and simplicity, and they're beautifully made- a shaker from ebay, oil and vinegar set I dragged home from Rome, the Fermob folding table from France, exceedingly well made and the best thing I could find for inside our trailer. Folds and slides under the front goucho. The Tivoli radio sounds great, is small and plays an iPod.

How about some Lincoln Beauty Ware for your vintage trailer?

Pink Flamingos

As I understand it, these people bought the molds, rights, and whatever and are making and selling Pink Flamingos in a variety of styles, in the Chicago area. A friend with a store in the city was headed over there to buy for her retail store (called RR#1, on Ashland at Chicago Ave, in Chicago), and she just told us about them.

Thanks for the tip on the place in Chicago, I'll hit it on my next trip there.

That's the trick about buying anything new, trying to find something that is not made in China. Fortunately, there is sooo much stuff, reasonably priced, that can be found second hand. I'm trying to find a string of lights for outside our trailer...

Although this item looks like it came from someplace in Asia, it actually was made in the USA. We find it not too useful, be certainly decorative. I do believe it is iconic. We take in the trailer wherever we go.

Airstream claim their bird is the original mould.

https://store.airstream.com/product_...roducts_id=699

They are back!
Set includes one standing and one feeding bird made from sturdy salmon-pink plastic. Standing flamingo measures 35 inches tall overall, and about 30 inches tall when legs are staked in the ground. Feeding flamingo measures about 17 inches from tail to beak and both are about 4 inches wide. Each flamingo has metal legs, realistic black and yellow plastic eyes, painted beaks and lots of feather texture molded in. These are the original 'Yard Art' flamingos (phoenicopteris ruber plasticus) designed by Don Featherstone with his signature molded underneath. The ultimate kitsch accessory for your front yard or garden! Made in the USA using the original Union Products molds.
