Newnan residents have another spot in town for toys and clothing with the opening of Pink Flamingo Kids.
Amber Hinson, owner of Pink Flamingo Kids, began her journey in December 2022 and recently had the shop’s grand opening on July 29, 2023. However, the vision, name, and dream of the store have been years in the making.
“It’s actually named after my favorite color pink, and my son loves pink flamingos, so I was like ‘Well, what better name,’” said Hinson.
Following Hinson’s relocation to this area from Oklahoma in November, she fell in love with downtown Newnan and knew it was the perfect place to open a new store for the community. Hinson’s goal was to provide a comfortable and secure environment for parents to shop without having to travel too far. However, it was her love for children that inspired the opening of the store.
“To get to see babies come in or watch kids’ faces light up when they see the toys and stuff like that, and meeting great families – it just makes you feel good,” said Hinson.
Most products are made in the United States, and clothing is shipped from countries such as India in order to maintain eco-friendly, organic clothing and toys. Upon entering the shop families will find a training table where children can play.
“I just want people to feel welcome when they come into the store,” said Hinson. “I want it to be a home environment where they can come in and shop and for them to feel like it’s not just a big box store, that it has a downtown home feel.”
Located at 4 Greenville Street, Newnan, Georgia, the Pink Flamingo’s hours of operation are Tuesday through Friday from 10:00 A.M. to 7:00 P.M., Saturday from 10:00 to 5:00, Sunday from 1:00 P.M. to 5:00 P.M., and closed on Monday.
“I just want to keep making families happy and provide the best of the best for them,” said Hinson.
