Thrifting Thursday – Vintage Alarm Clocks

While I was in Idaho, the week before last, my mother in law and I checked out a mini vintage flea market. It’s a new vintage show run by Two Chicks in a Barn.  They’ll be holding another event in September, so all my Idaho friends, be sure to check it out.  This California girl was impressed with Idaho prices.

I came away with a couple fun, very inexpensive treasures. These vintage alarm clocks just had to be mine and for just $5 for the pair, it was meant to be.  I think they’ll look really cute together on my bedside table, or maybe I’ll put them in Riley (my vintage trailer) since they are wind ups and no batteries or electricity is needed. And maybe this a collection in the making, we’ll see.  For now I’m happy with these two little guys, but if I see a third, I might need to get it.

This octagonal one is my favorite. Octagons are the new triangles, right?  I still love my triangles, but I have a feeling could love this new geometric shape just as much.  

Have you had time to hit any garage sales or done any thrifting this summer? Tell me about your best find lately.

      That's smart. Sometimes you just don't need a thing at all. I definitely didn't need these, but I figured they were about he same price as a Starbucks. I bet the Brimfield Antique show is amazing. Save away, it will be worth it.
