    Dear colleagues,
      I  was at Macy’s in NYC last weekend and just happened to observe the  latest Coral Spray Bedding collection from Martha Stewart. Corals,  sponges, shells, and JEN Vernon’s Corals of the  World  are featured as part of the display. The corals are replicas and not  for sale. However, there is no disclaimer or notice to the  un-sustainability of corals as ornaments, which may send the wrong  message to the general public. Given the recent coral-list interest in  the coral trade, I though I would share images of the display, see:  http://s273.photobucket.com/albums/jj201/Steven_Lutz_Photos/Coral%20Trade%20NYC/
      As  this is the International Year of the Reef, wouldn’t it be nice if  retailers got the message and noted such (at least by the end of the  year)?
