top:2px;padding-right:5px;font-family:times;”>When out trolling the flea markets keep your eyes peeled for vintage alarm clocks in bright and funky colors or tones. Don’t just buy one clock, buy a collection! Remember, vintage items look great when clustered together, making unique displays!

Take, for example, the collection Canadian Decorator Lynda Felton has in her home.

In an article titled to_gallery__how_to_display_your_flea_market_finds-4.php”>Castoffs to Collectibles in the Sept 2010 Canadian Living, Lynda explains that she inherited her grandfather’s (still-working) antique alarm clock 15 years ago and it ignited her passion for collecting vintage alarm clocks. “Not all of them work, but I like their faces and well-loved look.”

Happy Collecting,
