Daily Shop

When thinking of iconic Florida wildlife, one of long legs and pink feathers might come to mind. The American Flamingo is one of many indigenous birds observed and illustrated by naturalist John James Audubon, and published in his series of American bird drawings between 1827 and 1838. And though Audubon’s original American Flamingo resides in Derbyshire, England, hanging on the walls of the Duke and Duchess of Devonshire’s home, your own piece of Flamingo history can be found in Main Street Traders with this tropical tray. Great for large gatherings or a party of one, it's a way to bring some Florida fauna and history into your home. Enjoy for $125.
