WOULD YOU BUY IT WEDNESDAY

I must admit the heat is getting to me!  Still it does not stop me from going to some of my favorite thrifts!  I didn't see anything this week worthy of  'Would you Buy It Wed'  at Junker Newbie so decided to show you something from last years Longest Yard Sale.

Old!  Dirty!  Fantastic? 
Mr ALC has a collection of clocks and when I saw this one thought it would be a nice addition to his collection
It was marked $10~~but this is the WLYS and everything is negotiable
I haggled with the man and walked away, he came after me and we finally settled on
$5.....so would you have bought it?
Mr ALC also loves old fans and last year found several from one dealer...this was my favorite
Westinghouse Fan
I love this shape

It's time again for the WLYS and my favorite giveaway of the year
I shop for one of you! 
Go HERE to enter...you only have until Saturday night....winner will be chosen Sunday July 24th!

Here is a new photo of Tiger
Still at Y Boys Camp so he has his 
'tough guy' face on!

Hugs,
Linda

I have missed the World's Longest Garage Sale for 2 years in a row now. Do you have this years date? Or did I miss it already?!!

Love the clock and fan. Tiger is really getting big and is, as always, a doll!

XO,
Jane

Tiger's a cutey! So is that clock even if it just sits on a shelf!

Barbara F. said...

I had a clock like that and a fan in my childhood home! Don't think I would buy either one today lol - How cute is that Tiger?! xo

Susan said...

I would decline both but then again, my hubs doesn't collect either of those.

I'd take the Tiger though. Oh. On second thought, I would be unable to afford him. He's priceless! Susan

I bid on box with a couple old art deco clocks in it at the last auction, but they went for more than I wanted to pay... so yes! I'd pick them up! :)

Carrie at In the Hammock Blog said...

the fan is awesome!!

Mary said...

Oh, I like old fans, too! We have an oldie that needs it's motor replaced...been meaning to get around to that for about 10 yrs now. Great deco clock, too.

Bandhura said...

Love all of it! Me and the ex-hubby had a whole mantle of old clocks and we also had a selection of old restored fans just like the one you pictured and others. Hmmmm...wonder if he gave me the clocks and a fan or two? LOL I have so much packed up in my Mobile Attic and haven't had a chance to see what I have...when I do it will be like Christmas!

Linda, my husband LOVES vintage fans. If he saw this one, he would be so jealous. It looks like it's in such great condition too. The clock is cool too, but we don't collect those. laurie

Jane said...

Oh yes, that clock would have come home with me for sure! I think you know by now that I have a thing for old clocks. That one is a beauty!! I love the fan too!
I can't believe how big Tiger is getting. He's a cutie!

Rose @ Confessions of a Curbshopaholic said...

Oh yeah, I would have bought them both too. You're so lucky to be able to go to the worlds longest garage sale. I'll be watching to see what you get!

Rose @ Confessions of a Curbshopaholic said...

Oh, and I forgot to say, that Tiger is such a cutie! Can't believe he's that big already.

Susan said...

Every time I see little Tiger he amazes me out cute he is!

Hartwood Roses said...

Yes on the clock, and I'd leave the fan for some fan-atic --- ha ha ha.

Tiger sure is getting grown up.

Tiger is cute. I love the fan !

Red Couch Recipes said...

What a fun thing to go to! Haggling is fun too! Joni

Ann said...

I have to admit that I probably would not have bought the clock.
I do like the tough guy look though on Tiger's face :)

sissie said...

Hi Linda,
Old clocks and old fans, what's not to love!!

Your sweet baby is sure growing fast and cuter than ever.

hugs
Sissie

Pondside said...

I love that little Tiger tough face!!
Would I buy it? No....I'm more about dishes and pretties than fans and clocks - but The Great Dane might have!

Chatty Crone said...

He is totally totally cute - he is so young and so award - like he is looking right at you with those blue eyes... they do look blue!

Jojo said...

Love the fan...yup, I would buy it.

Ninny said...

Tiger is adorble...thank you for sharing him with your readers so we can watch him grow!

Shelia said...

Little Tiger's face just makes me laugh! He's too cute to be tough.
Now I don't think I would have paid that for that little clock but I really like the little fan.
Be a sweetie,
Shelia ;)

Nelly said...

Yes id have bought it.Very cute.

I would've bought both pieces. I have an old fan, but my clocks are all repros. It's hard to find the original double bell/hammer style alarm clocks for a reasonable price.

Tiger is looking pretty worldly there.

Your new follower, cause I'm loving your new finds.

I LOVE the fan! I definitely would buy the fan. Not so sure on the clock though...I'm not a clock person.

What a cutie Tiger is!!! :)

~Lavender Dreamer~ said...

I love finding old clocks! I hate having to come home with a lot of CLEANING to do but sometimes that's the only way to get a good deal! ♥

Annesphamily said...

I sure have a crush on that Tiger! He is so dreamy!
Love the clock but I love clocks so this one is very cool! Love your treasures. Love Anne
