'keep me, keep me, KEEP MEEE!!!'

Uh oh, I bought some things for the bucket tree, but I fallen in love with them! It is shameful I know, but the fact that we are moving flat makes me think of having new things. I recently found this industrial clock from the 60/70s and it is perfect for what I had in mind for my new office/studio area (I mean just desk really!) in our new tiny flat. The lamp is a stunner too...just look at this BEAUTIFUL plug! I have never seen the like before!...

Who could have thought that England could produce such a work of art as this plug, it should be in a museum, no?

...and this clock, what can i say! Made in Rhodesia, which I recently discover (I know my education is poor) was Zimbabwe untill 1979. How funny it ended up here, maybe a factory re-located perhaps?

another treasure I bought for the bucket tree, but, can I sell it? the more I look at this camera, the more i want to dash out and find a film for it. Real film is just like magic, isn't it?

oh humpf I hope this will not become too frequent as I will not have any stock for my shop!


  1. Not at all surprised you want to keep these, what gems you've found!
    Like the new look of your blog - I'd keep it that way...

  2. - You can't sell a camera like that, it's morally wrong!

    also, it ok to keep thing sometimes!

  3. yes, i would keep them! love your blog and your shop!

  4. I have a vintage Metamec wall clock not dissimilar to that, plus a little box camera almost the same too! Enjoy them for a while and you can always sell them later :-)

    Dear Artemis! I have *just* come across your wonderful blog and I have to say I am absolutely loving everything about it! I got married last summer and my maiden name was Stancliffe (like the clock!). I just saw the clock and wondered if you would ever consider selling it? I know it is a one in a million and I just thought I would ask on the off-chance! X kate (kstancliffe@hotmail.com)
