The Crazy Suburban Mom: Meh-Bomb, Diffused

Meh-Bomb, Diffused

Until yesterday the month of February was a big meh-bomb as far as thrift SCORES! were concerned; found a thing or two but nothing to write home about. 

 Or write here about...  

Then the other day I saw this description come through Freecycle:  "a General Electric Kitchen clock - 50's or 60's kitschy style with scalloped edges"  and I had to have it.

Don't know if you know how it goes with  Freecycle but wanting something and getting it are sometimes mutually exclusive.  But this time as luck would have it...

General Electric wall clock 2150 circa 1960

Isn't she adorable?

And that color yellow is the color of my kitchen.  Heavy thrifting karma sigh...  She's a General Electric Model #2150, works beautifully (YAY!), is about 7 inches across and made in...  Well, I'm not sure.  Googling produces a date result of "made in the 1950's and 1960's" mostly from people who are trying to sell one.

  Since the model also came in avocado I'm thinking 60's, maybe late 60's  and possibly the 70's.  Could be wrong about that but playing the  1950's card probably gets more buyers.

 This could be the best find all month but I do still have to pick up that lamp on Saturday...  

February's turned around nicely!

I love her! Put her as mine in your will ;]

Painted my toes with Julep last night and thought of you!

Hey! that is my Grandmothers exact clock from her kitchen that I have hanging in my basement! I would say 1960's she bought her home in 1965 and her previous kitchen was pink so I am sure she bought it new in 1965.
Thanks for bringing back memories for me!

We do not have that program here. You were lucky in this great find.

I saw one of these today as a matter of fact, and almost purchased it. My grandma had a yellow one too and it was in the 60's. Happy VTT
