Clocks have intrigued me since I learned how to tell time as a little kid.
I started thinking about a vintage clock collection when I found an Equity Superbell clock at the thrift store for next to nothing. Soon after that thrifty find, I came across a Seth Thomas travel clock that I just couldn’t resist and alas my vintage clock collection was born.
As with most collectors my attention peaks and wanes but when this mini vintage clock collection from Stephanie Fig’s shop The Enchanted Fig Tree on Etsy came to my attention I went back into full-fledged collector mode.
As I read the shipping information it was clear that we lived close to each other. So I sent Stephanie a message to see if we could meet for the exchange thus saving the shipping cost for me and the trouble of shipping for her. Stephanie is a delightful person and we really hit it off. She told me about having a booth in the Treasure Hunt (Antique Market in Powder Springs GA), an adventure I’ve been pondering, and I shared my blogging experience with her.
The German Phinney Lucite clock with the atomic shape is my favorite.
Of course the two Baby Bens by Westclox run a close second
but who could resist this Big Ben with its stately presence.
Here is the collection so far.
Now, I’m itching for more.
I’m so glad you stopped by today to read about the birth of my latest collection – Vintage Clocks. You should go check out Stephanie’s Etsy shop The Enchanted Fig Tree where she keeps an ample inventory of wonderful vintage treasures.
