New Paltz has Pink Flamingo Fever Original Featherstone Design

New Paltz is being whipped up into a furry over the Pink Flamingo Craze.

Yes, this vestige of the 50's and 60's has made a comeback.   It is an exact replica of the originals that were out -- the company that is producing the reproductions bought the original molds.   So all of us have the opportunity to pick up some of these decorations.

Books have been written to chronicle the craze.

We're glad at Barner Books to be continuing the craze, and will be posting images of the flamingos around New Paltz.

  1. the plastic flamingo may be singing its swan song after inspiring countless pranks - and being alternately celebrated as a tribute to one of nature's most graceful creatures and derided as the epitome of American pop culture kitsch.
