OOOH! As soon as I saw this I knew you would be who listed it. You get my vote for MVP/ home fasionista category, as always, beautiful taste. You really hit a nerve here, I am planning a pilgrimage to the newly re-opened Dali museum.

I think I saw this in a Twilight Zone episode.

I have this same exact clock. It's a little hard reading the time sometimes, but it's a great clock. I bought it a while ago at bed bath and beyond on sale and with the 20% off coupon.

@pickypickypicky: Thank you PickyPickyPicky, that's very kind.

I do like the better things in life, I am glad we are on the same wavelength!

Not to be rude, thanks for posting this item, but you can get it on Amazon for $36.90 including shipping. I can't find anything on resellerratings.com for The Foundary so would be hesitant to order from them.

@grush1: Not rude at all, grush1, thanks for finding that. I can't find everything, and that's why Woot exists.

I just quickly did a search and couldn't quite be sure that it is the same clock since the Amazon listing has very little detail. Do they come in different sizes?

TheFoundary is the flash sale division of HayNeedle Inc, which is one of the largest home decor/niche market companies in the country.

I have bought, let's see, seven times from TheFoundary in the last three months; no issue. They openly disclose when any product would have extended delivery time (due to their niche sources), and I think that's pretty transparent.

@lll0228: The dimensions are on the Amazon site and seem the same. Thanks again for all your posts!

@thebopster: The $29.95 is before shipping. It's not Prime eligible I don't think.

vote-for1vote-against

@grush1: Shipping adds $7.95, which brings the total to $37.90. And, that's just Amazon. I don't know how much the shipping costs on this "deal", since you have to join before finding the final cost.

vote-for1vote-against

@thebopster: I was mistaken. Shipping adds $6.95 instead of $7.95.

vote-for1vote-against

Right, so it's about the same as the Amazon Marketplace seller, and this is not a bad deal at all, since you get the security of buying from a reputable store, instead of some random seller on Amazon.

I just checked that shipping for this is $5.95 on TheFoundary. Given that, I would say it is a pretty good idea for the security and reputation of HayNeedle Inc.

what an awesome clock! -- although, despite it's ties to Salvatore Dali's painting, i would describe this more as an Art Piece, than a Time Piece...

"about the same as the Amazon Marketplace seller, and this is not a bad deal at all, since you get the security of buying from a reputable store, instead of some random seller on Amazon."

6 bucks more then regular price on Amazon doesn't seem like much of a deal... thanks but no thanks. I also take issue with your further jab claiming a subsidiary of "Hayneedle Inc." is somehow more reputable than Amazon. Without even getting into anything about the subsidiary "Hayneedle" itself has changed it's name several times in it's comparatively short history for who knows what reason. Whereas Amazon has had the same reputable name since it's founding.

vote-for1vote-against

Apologies I now no longer take issue with your "deal" or "Hayneedle" (as they are currently known). After reviewing the offering more closely I've come to notice that the link is a referral where if people sign up to find out what shipping costs or to purchase this "deal" then the person who referred them happens to get rewarded with coupon credits from thefoundary. How weird...

vote-for1vote-against

@ikisat: I don't know if you noticed that the seller on Amazon is not Amazon.com. I also would point you to the fact that I explicitly wrote that it is an Amazon Marketplace seller which may not have a reputation. I was entirely accurate.

I did not, at any point, mention that Amazon has "less" reputation than Hayneedle. Hayneedle and it former self is well known among the interior designing circle; I am sorry you don't know them. That's hardly my fault. I have multiple orders with The Foundary and they all arrived in good shape, and in a timely manner. People here can choose. I only provided an interesting item, listed at a discounted price.

You can either read carefully, comprehend, post some interesting deals on this community, or keep mindlessly attacking, while gaining nothing and hiding behind a monitor.

It seems like you have problem with links that may benefit someone; in that case, you may not want to click on anything on Woot. Woot makes money on most links.

If it makes all of you feel better, it's still available at Bed Bath and Beyond for $29.99. I got it when it was a sale, I think for $19.99? But get it in store and use their 20% off coupon.

My issue isn't that it benefits you it's that it doesn't benefit anyone else. If you want to post an actual deal that you happen to also benefit from I would have no problem with that at all. But this is available from multiple other outlets for cheaper then the "deal" you posted that magically happens to benefit you. If your intention wasn't as it appears then I simply suggest researching your deals even minimally in the future as the current situation puts you in quite a negative light.

I'm relatively new to this site I've only even been visiting it for a few weeks, I don't spend a lot of time searching for deals and most of the sites I do check with any frequency are already regularly posted on here by other users so I see no need to contribute sites I know are already regularly posted by others. When I happen across a deal on another website that isn't on here then I will contribute it.

vote-for1vote-against

I also ran out of space I had intended to respond to your absurd claim that you didn't say Amazon was less reputable. Amazon guarantees all it's sellers regardless of if you buy a used watch from a guy in Moldova or a LED TV from Tigerdirect or a brand new computer straight from Amazon it's all identical purchase protection. So saying "a random seller on Amazon" is an unreliable purchase is saying that Amazon is a disreputable company that doesn't stand by it's written guarantee. To me this is an absurd and misleading statement by you to further support people visiting and signing up for the site that benefits you instead of opting for the better deal elsewhere because you're attempting to make your site seem safer and more reputable.

vote-for1vote-against

idk good find on the bedbathandbeyond deal. That's an actual deal on this clock compared to everywhere else I've found it. Also half the price of the posted deal.

vote-for1vote-against

@ikisat: Like you have said yourself.

Your contribution to this site is minimal, while mine has been extensive, as other people have pointed out. I tend to find unique, stylish and well designed items that are not posted by others.

Amazon.com is a great company in my city, and is a company that I have placed many of my students to work for. Some of my colleagues work directly with Amazon's MyHabit team. You certainly make a lot of unsubstantiated assumptions, but alas, what's new on the internet.

I honestly don't know how I could "benefit" from posting this deal. If you could enlighten me, I am all ears. This is the link from the product page I receive once I login, and it is the only link that would show the product without people logging in. I am not sure what you do, but I certainly don't have time to go around checking everything before I contribute; and so far, judging from those who follow my deals, post is well accepted. I suggest that you do the same.

vote-for1vote-against

@ikisat: And if you find something cheaper elsewhere, do like the others do, contribute. Rather than just criticizing while hiding behind your screen. If you think other Wooters don't check prices before they buy ANYTHING from a link from Woot, you are underestimating the collective intelligence here. But you are new, and it's not uncommon.

This item has never shown up on Woot.com, just bringing it to light is a value for both the seller and the consumers.

vote-for1vote-against

@ikisat: So lll0228 found a unique product at a relatively reasonable price and shared it with the community, other Wooters found the product for a better price and contributed their finds, is this not the purpose of deals.woot, or am I missing something here? Why all the anger?

vote-for1vote-against

@daytonpilot: If you read the comments, I simply pointed out that it wasn't much of a deal because Amazon has it for $6 less. I also pointed out that Amazon is a more reputable site then TheFoundary unlike what lll0228 was implying is his post claiming that you're buying from some random market place guy so it isn't as reputable.

I then looked into why someone would make such an obviously false claim and noticed that the link provided to TheFoundary is a referral link in which if you sign up then lll0228 would be rewarded by the site for inviting "friends" which is a pretty good incentive to make misleading statements about other sites with similar or better deals in favor of your less reputable site from a company that has changed it's name several times for no apparent reason. Looking sat lll0228's deal history this seems to be something they do on a regular basis.

vote-for1vote-against

@daytonpilot: I have no problem as I stated with people who gain personal benefit from things they post but when it's not even a good deal then the reasons for posting it become pretty obvious as seeking personal gain from referral spamming. This is why I take issue. The fact that lll0228 began randomly insulting my reading ability and intelligence simply for calling them on trying to make sites like Amazon sound sketchy in comparison to their personal gain referral site did not help matters.

lll0228 I want to make clear that I'm not implying you aren't posting actual deals as well, simply that this specific deal isn't a deal at all but does personally benefit you if people sign up for the site you linked as do many of your other deals. Many of your deals are not referral links though so you obviously do simply search for and post good deals as well.

vote-for1vote-against

@ikisat: I have not made a penny out of any links to TheFoundary (if you are so new, you would notice that the Woot system strips most referral information to links).

To imply that I need to "make money" out of posting some random links on this internet is almost insulting, or the fact that I would defend some "random" company that doesn't pay me to do so. My time is more expensive than that. And once again, please read again. I did NOT say that HayNeedle is "more reputable" than Amazon, never did, never would.

I only said that I have bought from them 7 times & received the items as stated in a timely manner. People can take it anyway they want since it is a sample point of one; but it is a sample point.

I do NOT post any link from any site I have not personally used: this is my contribution to the community: To provide unique, stylish and fashionable items at discounted retail from website I have had good personal experience with.

@daytonpilot: Thank you. Exactly. I thanked him/her immediately after his/her post, because that's why Woot exists. And somehow that turns into a personal attack (absurd, though, so it's rather funny) on how I would benefit from this. Seriously? How little do people make to have to make money out of...posting links?

I am not going to engage him/her any more. It's just a waste of my time; this behavior is so "internet". I don't think he/she realizes that he/she is defending Amazon for a $6 (how much is a grande latte these days?) difference, and that Amazon doesn't pay him/her, nor does it need defending.

I am leaving this conversation. Some people are truly absurd.

Just remember to keep it friendly when debating mechanics. =)

Since you're denying saying things that are literally written inches above your denials it's pretty obvious you're not understanding at all why I took offense to your posts. You're also denying referral links which over half your posts in your history are referral links... so it's pretty obvious you either have multiple personalities or have no problem blatantly lying so I'm going to stop bothering. Have fun spamming, I'll just completely ignore your spam posts in the future and thank you for the real ones since no one else seems to care that you're spamming for personal gain.

vote-for1vote-against

@ikisat: Get a life. If you would "take offense" to some people posting links on a random website. LoL. You need to get out more.

If you don't even know that Woot strips out all referral info from links, you really know too little to even be here.

And no, I can categorically say that I have not benefited at all by posting links here. And honestly, I make enough money to actually buy most of the nicer stuff I post and to not need to make money through posting links. That's really funny. Do you understand any economics? How many "links" would people need to click on in order for me to make a few pennies through any referral programs? Other than Woot itself, NO ONE on this site has enough exposure to get enough clicks.

Seriously, do a little math, it's good for you when you need to make a point.

But I do find your posting really amusing; since apparently I am a much happier person.
