Took a ride yesterday down towards the ocean since we hadn't been down that way in a while. Stopped a few places including one that had just opened fairly recently . We had only been there once and I (at that time) had noticed an old clock that had a 'don't open, being researched' tag on door so I just left it alone. We looked at everything in the store ( I had thought) but as we were about to go out the door a corner of this caught my eye and I had to go back and look (we had walked by but I missed it,being on the floor). When I looked it had the same tag on it and waited to talk to the owner about it. He said he hadn't really done much research on it and I asked how much he wanted for it. He came back with a range and I was happy to pay the high end of what he asked and hope (as always) I did ok with it. Seth Thomas with 'Hartford, printed by Hudson and Skinner' label. Need work of course but isn't to bad and is ticking as I speak.
