As a tangent to my main collection interests I also recently started acquiring alarm clocks - I'll buy 'em wherever I find 'em with the caveat being that I spend no more than $5 per clock. Have so far managed to put together quite a menagerie with most costing only $2-$3 apiece!
There's 12 clocks in total; 1 Cardinal, 6 Westclox, 1 Equity, 1 Liberty, 1 Linden Black Forest and 2 No-name. I have an intuitive sense that a few of these might be fairly valuable (the black square-shaped Westclox, the Liberty and the Linden) so if any alarm clock experts can confirm or point out other gems in the mix that would be great! I can feature the more notable clocks in individual postings as well if they're warranted.
It's a strange thing about collections; one item on its own is just ho-hum, but you start amassing quantity and it begins to look impressive if not obsessive. I'll continue to pack 'em in on the shelves until it starts to look too much like the latter!
