    This has everything except the Atlantic Ocean thrown into it to immortalize Florida by.

    I never liked this kind of ceramic finish. I don’t know how it became so popular as the matte brown seems to underplay the kitsch possibilities here. Imagine what it would look like if it was full blast color, especially I stayed so sunshiny as Florida. I never used to collect these but finally gave in. The brown seems to be very popular in souvenirs. I have a feeling it was much cheaper to go that route.

    Had this been ceramic I’m sure it would have glowing bright colors. This was made of a pressed molded material, like a syrocco I think. It’s really a light weight for its 6×9 size.

    Hi…I love this, I LOVE all things Flamingo…this is great.
    I have a friend who loves to go to a “All Florida Souvenir” show in the TPA area. One year they had a group of retired Weeki Wachee Mermaids guest at the show, she said it was fabulous.
    This could be a great Fl kitsch road trip???…smile..
