Vintage Clock Shop Sign...and encouraging creativity...


Chipping with Charm:  Vintage Clock Shop Sign...http://www.chippingwithcharm.blogspot.com/
If you follow me on Instagram, Facebook or Twitter, you may have already seen my vintage clock shop sign.  My husband an I bought it on our little anniversary getaway to the Central Iowa Junk Jaunt a few weeks ago.
 I purchased it at the Broadstreet Market in Story City, Iowa.

I thought you might like to see it in its new home.
I couldn't resist surrounding it with a few clocks and CLOCK LADIES.

I love every perfectly, imperfect detail :)

Chipping with Charm:  Repurposed Gauge...http://www.chippingwithcharm.blogspot.com/
This repurposed gauge was another fun find...I put it up on a shelf in my new KITCHEN.

Because...it's cool and I haven't seen a white gauge before.
AND because...it was made and sold by a 16 year old "junker" in Iowa. 
He was set up outside of one of the shops in Story City.  He had a great eye for unique junk and was so excited about re-purposing that I couldn't resist cheering him on :)

I LOVE buying things from fellow artists and "repurposers"!  It just "pays" it forward from all of those who buy and encourage by little business.
So PASS IT ON...support CREATIVITY :)
