Fly Away Home

Graduating? Need a hug? How about a pillow that encodes all the good things to be found while growing up in Saint Louis?

Love Your City

Created as a fundraiser for The Nook, this pillow celebrates all good things about Saint Louis, including America’s #1 zoo, America’s #1 Botanical Gardens and the #1 playground for kids of all ages at the Citymuseum. Who says Saint Louis is fly over country?

We Love the Pink Duckie Race!

Citygarden might be America’s best childrens’ garden while Forest Park is America’s most beautiful urban park, complete with free Art Museum and Science Center. Needless to say, Saint Louis is home to the best fans in baseball. Need we say more. #PlayGloria

Who’s home to the “King of Beers” as well as a very vibrant craft beer scene? Who popularized the ice cream cone, plus invented iced tea, pixie stix, listerine and the hot dog? Local merchants often win craft chocolate awards and put us on the national chocolate map. In short, Saint Louis invented all the best teenager food, which is encoded on the story-map.

Home of Great Writers

“The end is where we start from”, and Saint Louis is home to many of America’s greatest writers including T.S. Eliot, Tennessee Williams and Maya Angelou. The young people will write the next chapter in American history and then we’ll make a new story-map!

We are the birthplace of kindergarten in America as well as the cradle of rock-n-roll. The Mississippi River and Route 66 run right through Saint Louis carrying with it American music and the hope of a new day. What’s not to love?

Plus! We have some of the best tasting tap water in the country. Young people don’t figure that out until they go away and taste the difference.

As they say, “if you don’t know where you’re coming from, you can’t know where you’re going”, and these pillows are a positive reminder of where kids come from. You can choose to believe the media despair about Saint Louis or you can trust your very own eyes and look to the bright side, (or at least hold a more balanced view). Let these pillows become a token of all the love and light created by so many good people working hard to make Saint Louis a wonderful place to grow up.

The pillows are for sale on Zazzle and are perfect for your high school graduate dorm rooms, car trips or camping adventures. They are 16″ x 12″ and about the size of a large book. The cover is removable and washable.

Like Vista Print, Zazzle is a print-on-demand fulfillment center that operates by discount, so the price range varies but hovers around $30. Zazzle rarely makes mistakes, and when they do they fix them, so order with confidence and Green Spiral will guarantee your purchase.
