Retro chrome stuff is in demand here in Seattle. It seems like everyone is trying to establish their home as some sort of shrine to “Mad Men.” I even caved and bought this awesome projector screen — trouble is, most of this stuff is super expensive. And one thing I’ve always wanted but have never seemed to find at a decent price is a retro-style clock with the little flipping cards. Well, a commenter over at this AT post pointed me in the right direction and now I’m in agony trying to decide which one I want.
Little Clock Shop has a bunch of clocks for sale (obviously) but these are definitely the coolest. And they’re cheap! $50-$80 for a good-sized, mechanically operated, battery-powered clock that looks like it came out of a time capsule. I’m going to buy one right now if my wallet can stand it.
