Sears & Roebuck released this colorful set of Pink Flamingos bed sheets in 1972, and it mysteriously disappeared almost as quickly as it hit store shelves. The sheets were made available two weeks prior to the release of the film, and within two months they were nearly impossible to find. Sales records indicated that only 500 to 800 units were sold nationwide, though Sears reports that over 5,000 units were actually produced. Where did all of the missing bed sheets end up? No one really knows, but it is speculated that they were pulled from shelves and junked by retail biddies who objected to the content of the film. Each set contained a fitted sheet, top sheet and two pillow cases.

If you ever take the NYC Subway, you have probably seen the hilarious and extremely adorable ads for Casper mattresses and bedding, because they are all over the inside of the train cars. If you are not sure if you have seen them, they look like this:
As you can see, they are very clever, and make you want to curl up and take a nap right now! Because sleeping is awesome. And since Casper is an online merchant with no real brick-and-mortar locations (save for a couple of Showroom Locations) the company is literally taking the show, er, bed, on the road, with a multi-city Nap Tour, where you can try-out the mattresses and bedding for yourself! Nap Tour!

Eating and sleeping are right up there at the top of my list of Gail’s All Time Favorite Things To Do. So, if I can catch 40 winks in a bed-thing that looks like a piece of food, win-win! Sadly, one must be child sized to fit into this awesome sleeping bag shaped like a slice of pizza. The vegetable pillows are detachable, so you can cuddle with a broccoli floweret or a slice of rip olive, if that suits you. Designed, hand made and sold by B Fiber and Craft Emporium.
