Allee Willis’ Kitsch O’ The Day – Vintage Concrete Pink Flamingos

These three beauties are the real deal, the kind that used to bake in the sun in Florida in the 1950′s glory days of pink flamingos, not the hideous shocking pink plastic repros that proliferate in catalogs today. These gals are made of solid concrete and weigh a ton; even the baby is a 10 pounder.

The super baby pink is faded to perfection and the thin metal legs are rusted as if they’ve been wading in an Okeefenokee swamp for decades. These three flamingos stand as proud today as when they were hatched back in 1950.
