Oiling is Key to Maintaining the Longevity of Your Clock

oil

Just like regular oil changes extend the life of your car’s engine, regular clock oiling extends the life of your clock. Oiling your clock every three years will help prevent expensive clock repairs and ensure that your clock will last for the generations to come. Imagine never changing your car’s oil; it wouldn’t take long for the engine to seize. Without regular oiling your clock will end up requiring a major service, or possibly a new movement.

The good news is that our clock experts are here to help!  We have serviced many thousands of clocks and will keep your heirloom in tip top shape.  If you’re handy, we are happy to teach you how to oil it yourself and we have professional clock oiling kits available for purchase, with special synthetic clock oil in a syringe applicator.  Stop by Ye Olde Clock and Gift Shoppe in Dallas, PA or call us at 570.675.6507 for more information.

Featured Artist: BK Wood Designs

img_6423untitled-16-3img_6531
Today we are featuring our friend Brian from BK Wood Designs.  We carry a collection of his beautiful wood boxes, pens and wine bottle stoppers.  Here’s a little more about him, in his own words.

“Hello, my name is Brian, and I run a small hobby woodworking shop in beautiful Northeastern Pennsylvania. I have always been a huge fan of nature and love to hike or mountain bike any chance I get. There’s nothing better than hiking through the woods, and you sit down to take a break on a fallen tree over a gently flowing stream and just listen to nature. It’s a sound that happens day and night, and never stops.

With my love for nature comes a love for log homes, and rustic furniture. This is why I got into woodworking. using natural elements adds a beauty that you can’t get from synthetic compounds. Take Spalting, for instance, which is technically wood starting to rot. This amazing process adds beautiful colors to wood you will never be able to re- create. I love to work with figured and contrasting woods.”

Spotlight On: Tokyobay Watches

 

 

time-well-spent

Established in 1991, TOKYObay is a San Francisco designed watch and accessory brand born out of a collaboration between two talented designers from two very different backgrounds. Jun Kobayashi, from Tokyo, and Dory Isaacs, originally from the UK and now living in the San Francisco Bay Area, came together as two friends with time on their minds.

The East meets West watch and accessory line is infused with everything from Jun’s days as a bassist in the popular niche group Flower Travelin’ Band to Dory’s upbringing in England as a passionate fashion student and ceramic studio owner. The result is a constantly evolving, unique fusion of Japanese minimalism and fashion-focused sensibilities.

Always stylish, well designed, full of color with good times in mind, TOKYObay is time well spent when dressing for the everyday.

“We came together over twenty years ago to create something different using our individual strengths and backgrounds in design and product development. We find continual inspiration in our work by combining new materials sourced from different countries and integrating unexpected textures and metal finishes. By experimenting with new looks and colors each season, we try to consistently evolve the line by mixing various eras with modern elements to bring both a familiar yet distinct look.”

Stop by The Shoppe to see this beautiful collection of time pieces.

August Birthstone: Peridot

Spotlight On: Himalayan Salt Lamps

in the spotlightIMG_9607

These beautiful lamps are made of natural crystal salt that is mined from underground salt mines in the foothills of the Himalayan Mountains.  The crystal salt is hundreds of millions of years old, and as a result, has special properties and high mineral content.  The heat from the bulb causes the salt to emit negative ions.  These negative ions bond with the pollutants in the air (positive ions) and neutralize them.  The newly bonded ions become heavier and fall to the ground, removing them from air circulation.  Concisely, these lovely Himalayan Salt Lamps cleanse the air naturally, plus they’re beautiful!  Stop by The Shoppe to choose your one of a kind lamp.

Here Comes the Bride

Did you know on average 7,000 couples get married every day?

fadd153d-6b07-4716-843e-6f558fb8041b~rs_768

The bride stands to the groom’s left during a Christian ceremony, because in bygone days the groom needed his right hand free to fight off other suitors.

Legend says single women will dream of their future husbands if they sleep with a slice of groom’s cake under their pillows.

Ancient Greeks and Romans thought the veil protected the bride from evil spirits. Brides have worn veils ever since.

The groom carries the bride across the threshold to bravely protect her from evil spirits lurking below.

Seventeen tons of gold are made into wedding rings each year in the United States!

These customs and superstitions are just a few of the many things we do to celebrate weddings.  Another is to purchase a keepsake to commemorate the love of the bride and groom.  We search the world for unique, meaningful wedding, anniversary and engagement gifts to offer to our customers.  And, we are happy to personalize any gift with a free customized inscription.
