Thread: Thrift store scores!

    Thrift store scores!

    Hey Cats,

    Found these at Value Village for a total of $4.

    The Mickey watch is a modern interpretation but it's a Mickey watch none the less. This came from a Disney store because it has the official Disney store stamp.







    Peace,
    Preston

    one night I dreamed I was locked in my fathers watch, with Ptolemy and twenty one ruby stars mounted on spheres and the primum mobile coiled and gleaming to the end of space and the notched spheres eating each other's rinds to the last tooth of time and the case closed - John Ciardi ...

    reminds me of a thread i started when i found a great vintage Omega box at a fair -the seller didnt know its value and i didn't inform him so i got it cheap !!- incredibly some enlightened members with higher moral standards suggested i had acted 'shamelessly' by not doing so i certainly hope you informed the seller of its true value before purchasing that great vintage Bulova box

    What I did do is show it to my Bud tonight who I've been educating about most things watches and he said he saw it there but left it. I then told him any watch box of a storied brand is collectable especially vintage ones such as this one. ☺

    certainly on two occasions i have come across a great box that went under the seller's radar and purposely gone out to find the correct watch for the box
