Vintage Black Friday

Today is Vintage Black Friday hosted by The French Cupboard

I thought it was about "time" that I joined the party and show you some of my vintage black alarm clocks (corny, I know).

My collection of vintage clocks continues to grow.  I found one today at a thrift store which brings my total count to 31.  Most of the clocks are Westclox and I am amazed that out of the 31 clocks not one is a duplicate.  I've got black clocks, cream clocks, silver clocks, brown clocks and one pink clock.

Here are some of the black clocks that are a perfect fit for Vintage Black Friday:







Happy Vintage Black Friday

  3. Hi Jane,
    Your clocks are wonderful, as are your pictures. I am always on the look out for old clocks as well, but not so easy to find!
    Happy VBF!

  4. Your collection is amazing, not corny at all!
    I am sad for giving up my collection to move.
    I have to get on the ball to find something to post for tomorrow.
    As always a treat to see what your up to.

  5. I think the clocks are amazing. I love clocks, Jane. There is something about them and how they have changed over the years. I wonder what kind of clocks we will have 20 years from now?

  6. I think you have more clocks than I do! The third photo is my favorite. The round face in the square box is wonderful. I love art deco.

  7. Ewww...very fun! I "think" my favorite is the first one you have pictured. Are any of these pictured the one you found today? Also wondering if any of these work? I love clocks too.

  13. I have a thing for clocks too. My parents have an old grandfather clock from Germany. I love your vintage clocks, especially the rectangular one with the yellowing face.

  14. These are wonderful, Jane, I never get tired of seeing them. They make such great graphics, and how cool is that, that none of them are the same!

  15. I love clocks, Jane! These black ones from your collection are wonderful. I don't know what it is about clocks that I love. I am always on time or early to wherever I have to go, and I wonder if there's a connection there.

  17. Hello sweet lady...

    Ohhh my...it's been way too long since we have visited, my friend! How are you doing? I hope that my note finds you well!!!

    Jane, I just loved seeing a few of your old vintage clocks...what a fabulous collection you have! 31??? Wow!!! Ohhh...they make such sweet displays...pretty vignettes!!! I think my favorite is the little clock in the first photo. I loved the shape and the colors...that pretty little bronzy/gold band that runs around the clock face! I do have one question though...what is the smaller clock that is on the clock face glass? Was wondering if it showed the day? Hmmm...so interesting! What a fun and fabulous collection!!!

    I joined in the VBF party today for the first time! I have always wanted to participate but was unsure of the day. I just happened upon another blog that was participating so I quick and joined in...hope that Jill doesn't mind! Anyway, come by for a visit, sweet lady! It was sooo nice seeing you today!

    Warmest wishes,
    Chari @Happy To Design

  36. LOVE the clocks. I visit your blog often and noticed that you have a lot of vintage photos. I don't know if you have your own, but I have some for sale: http://www.etsy.com/shop/pressedpetals

    Thanks for all of the inspiration!

  37. I guess I'm late in chiming in, but I LOVE your clock collection. My favorite being the cute little round one with the thicker frame (the fifth picture). I've had quite a few, but have scaled down to just my favorites. Funny how it doesn't matter if they work or not, I just love how they look. Cheers!

  38. Hi Jane, you have the most fabulous collections. I can't seem to stay on track with any one thing these days. After after our trip, have a lot of tucking away to do of everything we brought home. That means there needs to be some organizing going on. Thank goodness I still have 2 weeks before I head back to work.

    Hope you are having a great day. :) Tammy

  42. Jane this is an amazing group of vintage black clocks. They are all just beautiful. I would have a hard time choosing my favorite and I'll bet if I saw all 31 it would be impossible. I love clocks, but never find many here where I live. Have you been to Idaho???? buying all the clocks????LOL!
    hugs to you

  43. What a great collection, Jane. Haven't been here in a while and missed your inspiration. Barely have time lately to get to my favorite blogs. I think it's summer that does this to me.

  44. Hi Jane,
    I have loved vintage clocks forever and I'm envious of your collection. I only have about seven or eight but I'm working on it.

    Great display.
