Remember the stare incident I blogged about not too long ago? Well, just the other day, Tuesday to be exact, it happened again. There I am trying to be all sneaky and quiet, yup I’m one of those stealthy shoppers who can’t be bothered when I’m looking for stuff in the thrift shop. But I guess in this business sometimes you just have to be social when your finds are practically saying “WELL HELLO THERE, COME AND TALK TO ME!” to everyone that passes by.
I found a huge lot of vintage mantle clocks all sitting in one corner of my favorite thrift shop, undiscovered, so naturally I scooped them all up, all eleven of them and secured them in my cart (quick tip for newbie pickers, if you find something you like put them in your cart quickly and examine them later, sounds greedy huh, oh well…works for me) And then I went to the one corner of store to test the clocks and examine them a bit further. And you know how loud these old clocks are! VERY LOUD! So there I was standing and all these clocks were ticking, buzzing, and just plain ancient looking. There were Spanish and some Ukranian people speaking in their language pointing at my cart I just smiled at them, there’s a couple of seniors trying to be funny by asking me what time it is and everyone just want to say something about how old the clocks were, and what am I going to do with them, etc. etc.
So long story short it's all worth it and I'm not complaining one bit; here's a few of my favorite ones. Aren't they lovely?
