I Bought Something. Big.

It's a clock and it JUST fitted in the back of the car



It's huge...but there is one thing.



It doesn't work



But I knew that when I bought it... there were lots of them and the retailer said they couldn't guarantee they'd work, that's why they were so cheap.

I have other plans for it and with MONT's help, it's going to be transformed.

Oh...how much did I -pay for it?

$20

Yep, that's all

What do you think?

  1. Oh, I like!

    Could you just get a new clock mechanism to make it work? I think they are reasonably cheap (under $20) from Bunnings.

    Otherwise, it would look cool on a wall, even if it didn't tell the time. I fell in love with an oversized clock in Target a few months back, and decided to wait for a sale. Come sale time it's gone! That will learn me!!!

    1. April, I thought of a new mechanism, but I'm not sure we have a wall that is really big enough for this monster...

  2. Yes, big bargain! I will be interested to see your plans for it, but I also like April's idea for getting a replacement mechanism - worth it for that price.

    1. Teresa, I thought of a new mechanism, but don't they come complete with new hands as well?
      I may have to investigate

  5. I'm intrigued to see what you are going to do with the clock. It certainly is a monster - but a very attractive one :)

  7. Ok so where is this little (I mean big) beauty from? It would def work with new mechanism..... I found your blog whilst googling Albi imports funnily enough which I have just posted about on my new blog. Love to meet a fellow Melbourne blogger who loves a bargain
