I have been looking for a clock for my place for AGES...OK..two months. Anyhow...I didn't want to buy a new one and the only others I really liked are sunburst clocks, which cost a mint for the really fabulous ones.
And then I went to Vinnie's and this fabulous little beauty popped out and said "Tick tock! I'm your clock." Well, it said tick tock anyway. So I laid down my ten bucks for it, took it home, cleaned it up, straightened the second hand and here she is. Glorious.
It's wooden, heavy, made in Fiji and it totally fits in with my curious obsession with vintage and just generally kitsch souvenir travel items.
Man I love opshops.
