So I twiddled my fingers and I couldn't decide whether to get this lovely clock from my new favorite store - Oak Street Vintage. So they were kind enough to place it on hold for me over the weekend while I went up to the big city (Portland) to look around for similar retro star-burst clocks. Better than similar I found an exact match - 2 actually.
This discovery was good and bad. It was good to know that the price I would pay in Eugene was less expensive than one of the clocks. It was bad to know that this is a pretty common clock out there - not as special as I thought. It turned out that the 2 clocks in Portland were priced 1) $25 dollars more and 2) $5 dollars less - this second clock however was not plugged in and I was not sure if it worked. It may have had some condition issues but I didn't inspect it closely. The two Portland where I found the clocks were The Lounge Lizard and Hawthorne Vintage - both located on SE Hawthorne.
I was pleased to know that I was able to find what I wanted right here in Eugene. So I came home and purchased it. Even though I could have purchased one clock that was slightly cheaper I prefer to spend 5 extra bucks and to support a new and unique small business right here at home. This photo is the one we purchased at Oak Street Vintage.
