Junkin' Monday

Oh my goodness! It was a sweet junkin' weekend. City-wide garage sales in David City on Friday followed by an auction in town yesterday. Hard to decide what to post about, but my large purchase of clocks won out. As with so many vintage items (doors, windows, cameras, aluminum coffee pots, fabric, buttons, etc.....)I'm pretty smitten with clocks. There were a few clocks that got away at the auction--way to pricey for my budget--funny thing is I got the ones I loved the most and they were the seasoned dealer's rejects. Hhhmmm--don't really know what that means. Are they the clueless ones or me? (That is a completely rhetorical question. I'm not looking for you to answer it for me!!!)

Mmmmm, can you hear the ticking? You might notice the two on the front right--no, they aren't actually clocks but wall thermostats. They look awesome.

And, this large one in the back?! A game timer! How fun is that?! (Alas, it doesn't work, but my son and I got the back off this morning so we'll see if we can get it going.)

Look at the little art deco beauty hiding in the back row--check out these art deco clocks I have listed here and here. I found those at the flea market I posted about last week in Junkin' Monday. Now, head over to Clara and Marcela's blog Cottage Charm and Family Inspiration for more Junkin' Monday posts. So fun to share the vintage quest!

  7. Hi Jill, thanks for coming by, and for sending up a prayer. I'm so sad to hear about your first husband's death. so young. I'm still here at home waiting to find out what is best to do this week.
    Love all your clocks. Those would be my favorites, too...and you got a load of them! Take care, and have a good week.

  8. I love clocks also, I think you did pretty good at the auction! You've got quite a lot of great clocks.

  9. Hi Jill,
    You found some wonderful clocks! I don't think I've ever seen that many clocks in one weekend of junkin'. I'm not even going to try and pick a fave...Okay, maybe the blue one, love it!
    You have a beautiful blog!

  10. I love old clocks....great finds!!
    Happy day!

  11. What wonderful clocks! I have three old (non-working) clocks - each set with the time of my childrens' birth. I saw the idea on a blog (was it here?) and thought it was fun. The kids like to be able to look at their clock to remember what time they were born.

  12. Oh my gosh!!! I love love those clocks!!! The art deco one? *swoon*

    And the dress form? I think you should name her "robelyn" and then send her to her namesake. haha! That's an awesome find!!! I can not wait to see what you do with it!!!

    Now, I'm off to break an egg...or not...

    talk to you soon!!!
    :-) robelyn
