If you follow my blog, you know I'm a Craig's List junkie. I'd say about 50% of my home is furnished/accessorized via CL. I'm so excited to show you my newest CL treasure!!
This E. Ingraham antique mantle clock was listed for just $50. My heart went pitter patter as I feverishly responded to the ad. The hours that followed while I waited were excruciating! All you can do is hope and pray that you were the first one to respond when something this good comes along.
It ticks, it tocks, it came with a key, it's beautiful and I love it! And for only $50, who wouldn't? Of course I had to ask the seller if she got a lot of calls (I know this sounds twisted, but I love doing this!) and I could tell by the look on her face that "yes" was an understatement. That just added to my excitement.
When you hunt for treasures as much as I do at yardsales, estate sales and auctions you run into a lot of the same people - many of them dealers. We are always cordial to one another, but there is definitely a level of competitiveness that goes along with this hobby. I could just picture the faces I knew would be responding to this ad and it tickled me to know that I got it!
This is where I put it for now, on top of my antique in the Living Room.
Not sure I like it there or if that's where it will stay, but I stuck it there for now just to show it to you.
Did I mention I trekked out in the pouring rain and flooding to get this sucker? We are experiencing some extreme weather here in the Mid-Atlantic region this week. But of course I think it was worth it.
Thanks for visiting and enjoy your weekend!
