Pink Thing Of The Day: Miniature Pink Clawfoot Bathtub

If you’re a regular reader of this blog, then you might recall that I recently attended an art event at the National Museum of Mathematics (aka MoMath). On the way out of the museum that evening, I decided to pop in to the gift shop, where I noticed something at first seems a bit incongruous: a tiny Pink Bathtub . . . that was in use as a bin to hold little soaps shaped like the Pi symbol. Oh, the cleverness.

Pink Thing Of The Day: Abandoned Pig Toy and Child Seat

What looks to me to be some sort of a Pink Plastic Child’s Activity Seat accompanied by an adorable Pink Pig Toy were found abandoned on the sidewalk just steps from the entrance to the Goodwill Store on West 14th Street. This brings up so many questions for me. Like, why were they not donated to the store? Were they rejected for hygiene purposes due to Covid? Either way, it’s sad to think of this little piggie ending up in the bin. Sadness.

Pink Thing Of The Day: Swarovski Store Display Wall

Ever on-the-hunt for the elusive Pink Thing, I was magnetically drawn into the newly-opened Swarovski store on Broadway by their vast display wall of exciting pinkness!

The concept of displaying the brand’s jewelry and small crystal trinkets nestled against a wall lined with various-sized shaped compartments — punctuated by the occasional expressive mannequin — is just genius. Creating a ‘Life-Size Jewel Box’ concept, the store’s transportive design not only provides an immersive shopping experience, it’s obviously also highly Instagram-able.

Located at 542 Broadway in SoHo, the store (which opened in May 2021) is part of Swarovski’s Instant Wonder identity rebranding. And while it’s not shown in this post (for reasons which will be immediately clear) the other half of the store is entirely green. You’ll want to at least pop in when you are in the area.

Pink Thing Of The Day: Pink Glass Elephant

I spent an extended Pride Weekend relaxing at a friend’s vacation home  in The Hamptons. Activities mostly involved us floating in the pool, eating, and then taking long walks to work off whatever we had just eaten or were about to eat. We also did some driving to nearby hamlets like East Hampton, West Hampton, and Sag Harbor, which is the location of the gift shop where I found this Pink Glass Elephant. I have no idea of the price, but I can guarantee you it was not cheap.

Pink Thing of The Day: Rabbit Frozen Cocktail Tumblers

Ah, Summer is here and we all want frozen cocktails on demand, amiright? There’s nothing like a frosty, buzz-inducing beverage to help you beat the heat, poolside or inside. But who wants to take a time out to break out the blender when you’re in the middle of relaxing at home? I will take a  hard pass on that.

Fortunately, I found something that does all the hard work for you. I recently attended a Housewares Summer Press Preview sponsored by the International Housewares Association, and fell in love with the design of these Pink Frozen Cocktail Tumblers from Rabbit. Check them out! Continue reading Pink Thing of The Day: Rabbit Frozen Cocktail Tumblers

Pink Thing Of The Day: Pink Hair Color Ad on Storefront

Back in 2020, a Sally Beauty supply store moved into a brand new storefront on East 14th Street between B and C just in time for Covid to lock the city down. Talk about bad timing. Fortunately, and probably because it is part of a chain, the store reopened mid-summer and seems to be doing well ever since.

While I purchase the Pink Hair Dye I have used for decades online, it is reassuring to know that Sally Beauty also sells my color, and then some.

This small plastic Pink Flamingo is part of an external store display that attempts to disguise the construction overhang outside of 305 Fitness, located  on West 14th Street between Fifth and Sixth Avenues. Bonus: The door handles are also an appealing shade of Hot Pink! Sweet! See a full shot the door with tropical-themed camouflage below!
