COVID-19 Protection Framework Orange
| Our stores are open, however you may see some changes in the way we operate, to meet the guidelines set out within the framework of the Orange setting and meet all necessary health and safety guidelines. Please practice social distancing and wear a face covering. If you prefer our online store is open and we are safely packing and dispatching your orders following NZ Covid protocols. With the increased demand for online shopping and the extra safety measures we’ve got in place to keep our team safe, combined with the extra pressure on our courier partners, we ask that our customers please be patient. We expect orders will take longer than usual to reach you, but we’ll continue to do our best to deliver your order as quickly as possible.

Plastic flamingos back in the pink
There are more plastic flamingos in the USA than real ones. Plastic flamingos are widely considered to be the stereotypical example of lawn kitsch - America's answer to garden dwarfs. The plastic species stopped replicating when manufacturer Union Products went out of business in 2006. However, Faster-Form Corp has purchased the copyright and plastic moulds of Don Featherstone's original plastic flamingos and will save the garden ornaments from unlikely extinction.
