Tonight, after a friend and I stuffed ourselves silly with Enchiladas De Mole at our favorite local Mexican restaurant, we thought we’d complete the evening by stopping to peruse the wares at Savers thrift store — where once in a happy blue moon I come across something special. And tonight had me on its VIP list for just that!
Behold, the Seiko QXH102BC chiming, dark brown solid oak Schoolhouse Clock with spun brass swinging pendulum! It has curved, convex glass crystal and selectable Westminster/Whittington chimes that activate every quarter hour. The chimes can be adjusted for volume and can be selected to chime always, during the day only, or can be turned off entirely!
This clock cost me only $10.99! I cleaned it up with some furniture polish, popped in a C Cell…and it came to life! It looks brand new! The best part is I looked it up and found that at Walmart it was sold on-line for $229.50! What a find! I’m over the moon!
