Thrift Store Friday (Bought a sweet Clock!)

Hello my dear readers. Today i went to the local thrifts around my town and I didn't see much in them today. I did hit up some other thrifts throught the week and saw a few cool things but I didn't get anything. The only thing that did manage to snag at the thrift stores this week was this really sweet 60s era General Electric wall clock! Hit the jump for some more pictures of the things I saw!

This general Electric Clock is pretty awesome! I only paid $5 for it and I think that was a stellar deal! It works marvelously and it doesn't have that "hum" that a lot of old electric wall clocks have. The face of this clock is in excellent condition and there are hardly any scratches on the front. On the back there are quite a few scratches that were created from constantly trying to hang this thing up over the years and there are also a few cracks in the plastic on the back but they aren't too serious and you can't see them from the front at all.

Here is a pretty cheap retro looking cabinet. This one was only $5 but it was really really cheaply made. This would have been a bad buy so I left it. There was a sticker that said "Zenith" on the inside but it looked more like a schematic for a TV. I'm not sure why it was in there. Also there was this really cool looking Retro adding machine with the box! I didn't need this so I left it but it was only $6.

Hey look! Another Mixmaster! I keep running into these things! This one was only $11 but I already have a better looking one. This one was missing too much and too beat up. I thought I would take a picture of it anyways though. I also saw these aluminum cups and I would have bought them but I already have like 15 of them somewhere and I didn't need anymore. They were $1 each I think. I also saw a bunch of Raffia-ware cups and a misc serving dish like the one I saw at Thrifty Treasures. They were all only 50¢ each.
