Amazing Thrift Store Find!!

No not yarn!!! Look at my beautiful clock! It's a Waterbury Gingerbread Style Clock made by the Waterbury Clock company in Connecticut in the late 1800's. I was in the shop and a lady had it in her basket. I commented to her that she had a really nice clock at a great price. $6.00 Well, she looks at it closer and says it doesn't have a key and did I want it. Well, sure I do. I was thinking that I didn't care if it worked I just wanted to look at it on my mantle. When I got home I set it on the mantle, walked away and later hear a bong, bong, bong....... It works! I set the time and it's been correct now for few hours! I'm shocked!
Find #2 - I found a Longaberger basket 1991 Centennial with the red, white and blue lining and the card that came with it. It was given to me! I was really blessed today! I LOVE THRIFT STORES!

Wow! That's a gorgeous clock, Diana! I can't believe you bought it for $6 and the key for $7. It HAD to be a God-Thing! Yes, you are blessed!
