Retro Family Drive-In Treasure

I haven’t had many treasures screamin’ at me at the thrift store lately, but one thing did stand out this weekend.

Ain’t it great? An homage to a bygone era.

You know how I feel about aqua and red, and when yellow is added, it’s no shock that this grabbed ahold of my attention, and didn’t let go.

Seriously cool 3-dimensional details.

….and I love the tinted windows showing the diner inside, with signs showing “Fountain Creations” and “Coca Cola” on the wall.

This is a resin Burwood clock from 1988. The clock is battery-operated, and still works. The plastic clock cover is toast, big time, and is easily removable, as shown. In the era of online shopping, I have to believe that replacing it isn’t impossible.

Coming soon to my Etsy shop…..
