What do you think would happen if YOU finally found something you’ve admired from afar and longed to own forever and ever ? Would your heart skip a beat?
That’s what happened when (( Alys )) took me over to the Almaden Clock Shop in San Jose. Not only did they have the iconic Kit-Kat Clocks, they have a bunch of colours to choose from. The proprietor, Wayne was super nice too!
I fell in love with them ALL! The girl Kit-Cat’s have pearls and flippy eye lashes, while the boy Kit-Cat’s sport a jaunty bow-tie and silly grin.
Naturally, I had to get a ‘Limited Edition’. Out of all these colours, can you guess which one I’d pick? Was it red, maybe pink or even white?
LOL, you know me all too well….BOOM!
Blossum would have preferred the black model Mum says, “NO WAY”! My limited addition aqua Kit-Cat clock is happily wagging it’s tale and carefully watching my every crafty move.
Did you know they have a fan club to join? Their cheeriness has been irresistible for over 80 years
While The Kit-Cat Clock might remind you of the 1950′s, it’s actually been around since 1932. Their eyes roll back and forth as the tail ticks away the time. A definite piece of Americana as they’ve always been made in the good ol’ US of A. According to their website, “in the last 50 years, someone has purchased a Kit-Cat Clock every 3 minutes”. My Turquoise Kit-Cat was only made in a limited number in 2004. Click here to see other limited editions.
As a matter of fact, they’re made in Fountain, California. Now, whenever I look at it, I think of all the fun I’ve had with our sweet Alys and I smile just like my Kit-Cat Tick-Tock I love my clock .
Do you know anyone else with one?
