Fun fact: Hush Puppies used to showcase at Baselworld. For years, even.

Absolutely true. I mean, their booth wasn't near, say, JLC, but it was there. Basel actually had a lot of budget brands - Hush Puppies, Flik Flak, freakin' Stuhrling and Invicter, Mathey-Tissot, Girl Only, Ice Watch, Croton's Nicolet, Perfect Products (Japanese gift sets like you see at interstate rest stops and flea markets), and other stuff like that springs to mind. Hey, it obviously wasn't all 100,000 dollar watches - I guess if you paid the nut, you could display.

Actually this one is a kinetic movement.
A true frugal find
Indeed. It looks pretty sharp, too.

Nice haul, congratulations. I particularly like the Hush Puppies watch. So if you put a new strap on your Hush Puppies can you still call it shoes?

That's a great post...
Thanks all! The skeleton has been claimed and will be going to a new home. The others I will enjoy!
