Flint as a Decorative Element
My friend M.G. spotted this pillow today at the Jonathan Adler decor shop on Fillmore Street in San Francisco. The price? $98. The designer started with a series of needlepoint pillows of exotic upscale locales like St. Tropez and Monte Carlo, then followed up with a series featuring places that are, well, exotic for different reasons — Flint, Fresno, and Scranton. I suppose you could find this offensive in some way, but as someone who regularly vacations in Flint, it makes sense to me. I just wish they were a little cheaper.
