These very fancy Pink Faceted Gemstone Souvenir Pens are currently on sale in the gift shop a the Bowers Museum in Santa Ana, California in conjunction with their exhibit, All That Glitters, The Crown Jewels of the Walt Disney Archives.
My eyesight isn’t the best, but it wasn’t hard to spot this tiny Pink Flamingo Lip Balm (I know what it is because I own one myself) on one of my recent walks. The Flamingo and its friend, the Ice Cream Cone Magnet Pen (seen below) were abandoned on a ledge outside an apartment building. I made my documentation, and I continued on my walk.
I saw these fun Pink Pens with an attached Flamingo Tassel at the check out counter when I was buying a selection of random cheap stuff (knit gloves, steak knives, scented candles) at a 99 Cents Store on Delancey Street. If you were feeling ‘crafty,’ you could totally take that chain off and attach the tassel to a purse, or make a super cool necklace out of it as well.
This visually vibrant, attention-grabbing poster is a clever marketing tool for advertising all of the brands of Industrial Marking Products made by Sakura of America, that just happen to come in the color pink. The word Sakura means cherry blossom in Japanese, and Sakura are also the recognized inventor of the wildly popular gel ink roller ball pen, also known as the Gelly Roll! In the 1990s, the pop singer Pink was even a spokesperson for the brand!
