For a while now I have been wanting to spruce up my bedside table with one of these classic clocks. I think these old (or new to look old) clocks are so much classier than the new digital models we have now. So imagine my excitement while we were in a Veteran’s Thrift Store when I came across this clock… and for only 2.98$ … and it works.
I was worried at first that the ticking would be too loud next to my head, but it is a perfect white noise tick. You hardly even notice it till all is really still and you try.
Then, I was in our local Salvation Army and saw this little guy. My daughter had mentioned she was thinking of doing a collection of them in her bedroom, so I picked i up. It was only 99 cents. (sorry for bad phone photo).
Where as the one above I found was battery operated, this one is wind up operated. Sadly, although it ticks (and ticks way too loud), it doesn’t keep accurate time. However, I figure it would look cute in a collection or vignette just not wound up.
