The sign says it all...
Tick tock...just a few clocks!
Square ones too - these are called Spurs.
Clock works - to take apart, or use for display...
A face only a junker could love!  Quite a Gem!
Pieces and parts...
Is Terri supervising again?  ;)
I could hear the little ticks and tocks as I was driving down the road... (and maybe the sound of my shocks feeling a little stressed!).
We tried a smaller skid, but had to go with the biggie size!
The next time you see this sign it will be at the loading dock of Art & Architecture...
Is that relief I see?  Oh yeah!! :)  See ya there!

Alright...Terri and I are so glad that all the cleaning, winding, tagging, wrapping, and packing of our clocks is done, we're taking a little "time" off!

It was a chilly morning in Ohio last week  (but we figured our little clocks should get aclimated to their new location..., haha) - and, we dropped them off at the trucking company and said our good-byes - (yes, they've gotten attached to us...).  AND now we're looking forward to the Art & Architecture, JUNKMARKET Style event...May 5-9th (in case you haven't heard...) - and being reunited (at least temporarily) with our Big and Baby Bens, and their other little friends.

My van was loaded to the brim (my husband would have cringed to see it - but the delivery was made while he was at work - good planning on my part I'd say), and we ended up filling an oversized skid - five bins high - not telling the exact count...but there are a LOT.  We also sent along clock faces, clock works, and some very cool jars of clock parts.  Sue's got BIG plans for display - can't wait to see!  And, we're so excited to help them find new homes too - fun, fun, fun!

Anyway, had to share just a "few" pictures...


P.S.  The exact time and date of delivery is being kept "secret"...I have a feeling there might be a junkfest girl or two lurking in the alley - ha ha!! :)

Hope there will be some of these left for me! Must have cost a small fortune to ship?
