Pink Thing of The Day: Post No Gums Sidewalk Stencil

Do you suppose that the anonymous artist of this Pink Sidewalk Stencil intended their message to be interpreted as a take on a Post No Guns sign, or a warning to refrain from discarding used wads of gum on the path? The Google had no answers. Spotted on the sidewalk at Avenue A near 11th Street.

Can you look at these Pig Juggling Balls without breaking into a huge smile? I dare you.  The box declares that “Pigs Will Fly” — but I bet that depends on how skilled of a juggler you are! Manufactured by Ridley’s, you can buy these Happy Pigs at Wild & Wolf!

Pink Thing of The Day: Pink Marking Pen Poster

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!

Standing on Avenue B and looking east down 8th Street, I saw an unidentifiable Pink Thing that caught my eye, and I went to investigate. Because: Pink Thing.

Pink #1 Balloon

It was a bright Pink Mylar Balloon in the shape of a Number 1! Someone had tethered it to the railing running around the side of the Church of St. Brigid, which is situated at that corner. The balloon’s origin remains a mystery.

Who’s Number 1? You are, baby.

When visual merchandising is responsible for probably 90% of retail sales, Dylan’s Candy Bar knows that the best way to sell bulk candy is to arrange it by its place in the color spectrum! That also makes iy much easier to get a photo of all the varieties of Pink Candy at one time!

One of my favorite recent Christmas presents is the set of vintage Pink Pig Salt and Pepper Shakers that I received from a neighbor. These little guys  are so adorable that I have not even been able to take then as far as the kitchen. Instead, they sit on my beside table, so that I can see them as soon as I wake up each morning and get my daily squee out of the way. Squee!

Just so nobody gets confused, the girl pig (with the red bow) has an S on her back for Salt, and the boy pig has P for Pepper! Helpful!

Don’t forget that next week, on February 5th, we will be celebrating Chinese New Year, ushering in the Year of The Pig! Yay!
