I'll take the PINK one!!

While shopping at one of my favorite Antique Shops in Seguin, Texas this week...
I found these...
Retro Soda Shoppe Clock
This one, a Coca-Cola Clock.. price $100...
just a little out of my clock budget...
and not being a Coca-Cola collector... I couldn't have cared less...
because...
in another booth...
I found this...
A totally cute PINK Soda Shoppe Clock... with no advertising promos...
and the price... $30...
Hey!  I'll take the PINK one...
and show it off on Pink Saturday at Beverly's

Now, admittedly, I have no idea where I'm going to hang this clock... so it may just end up in my Etsy Shoppe someday soon...
In the meantime.. I'm just going to enjoy this sweet couple sitting at the Soda Shoppe, holding hands and sharing an ice cream soda before the sock-hop...

Down here in French Lique...
Now go check out the rest of the Pink Ladies (and gents) at How Sweet the Sound...

Save it for a party...what a great prop it would be for a 50's themed party or shower.
It's darling and the price ain't bad either!

Hi Dixie, wow, that was a great find. As one person mentioned, just perfect for a theme party. Go for it, LOL I bet you have so much fun shopping around your local antique stores. We don't have too many here but there is one place I especially like to shop and have purchased quite a few neat things. Thanks so much for sharing your passion. I have recently found your blog and am now following you, and will visit often. Please stop by my blog and perhaps you would like to follow me also. Have a wonderful day. Hugs, Chris

Happy Pink Saturday, Miss Dixie. I am so glad you joined us today.

I can see why you had to bring this beauty home. I hope you find a place for her, but if not, someone else will surely fall in love, too.

WOW! I collect Coca-Cola and I still would NOT pay $100 for a clock! They are cute as a cupcake though!
