Antique Clocks & More has an extensive and interesting inventory which is constantly changing.|
Some of the clocks have lasted 200/300 years, and with a little bit of care they can last another 200/300 years.Many of these clocks are Table or Mantel clocks, but we also carry Wall clocks, Grandfather clocks, Cartel Clocks, Bracket Clocks, Carriage Clocks etc. Beyond selling clocks, Willem also repairs them and does general maintenance. He even makes house calls to ensure a clock is set up properly in his client's home.
Among the timepieces are many other decor pieces that Viveca collects, including Music Boxes, Porcelain pieces and English and French Furniture pieces.
While Viveca is happy to have most of the clocks out of the house and in a showroom, she was surprised at how much they had become part of their life. "This is the strange thing. We had all these clocks and we were always joking about clocks. And once we went on a holiday and we couldn't sleep because it was too quite in the hotel room".
When visiting the store at 1866 Avenue Road in Toronto during the weekend, don't be surprised when 12 year old Jacqueline welcomes you into her parents store and ask: "Is there anything in particular you are looking for today?" Jacqueline is the new promise for clock making in Canada. She'll tell you that one day she will take over the store and the fixing and selling of antique clocks.
