Baby boom



My collection of Baby Bens and clock faces continues to grow, thanks to a huge lot of vintage clock parts I won on ebay that arrived today. I sorted through a bunch of pieces and chose what to keep and what I will (hopefully) sell in my booth. I kept the gems for myself... All the faces are small, none much bigger than about 2.5" and all in my favorite black and cream. There were a bunch of bigger clock mechanisms and casings, but I only kept a few that I thought I might be able to turn into frames or something. I also kept the littlest gears and other odds and ends, maybe to use in crafting but probably just to put in a jar and have. I like the old tags, too. Obviously from a repair shop long ago. One is simply labeled "JUNK." Ah, how I love that word...

Love the clock faces! What a cool eBay win. I can understand your love of the black and cream. I can also understand liking the old tags. I love the word "junk" too -is there anything more alluring than a table full of "stuff" that someone else is getting rid of?
(or an eBay listing for that matter)

Where are your booths at? Jessie and I have been going lately and wondered if we could ever find your booths. Also, have you seen the shop in the mall called Arty Crafty? I like it alot!

Hello you all! Thanks for noticing my stuff. My booth is #222 at STD Central, the red one on Trafficway just west of the Shrine Mosque. It is so bare right now, though. I haven't been to Arty Crafty yet, but my mother-in-law got a couple of my Christmas presents there. I'm so glad you two have caught the decorating/flea marketing bug! It is uncurable, though!
