|Beautiful Little Brown Clock|
This one was from a yard sale and there were two that were exactly the same. This one was unplugged at 12:00. Was it on moving day?
This one has stains so I imagine that it was used at a car shop or something. You know the kind of shop office off to the side of the mechanics shop, stacked full of papers and has the ash tray full of cigarette butts.
Awwwe poor little Baby Ben, you have been through a lot. No glass on this one and the second hand is gone. The hour hand is totally bent and the face is even crooked. I think this one was totally tossed around and no one cared about rescuing it, except me of course. I never pay a lot for my thrift finds, I do kind of feel like I am rescuing them. I take them home and clean them off and add them to my shelf of clocks.
Some of them are very fancy, this one screams when you plug it in. I chose to leave it at 20 minutes to 3:00 one of my favorite times from the past, I think it was the exact time my children came off the bus from school. I would love to have that time again.
