The Joy of Fixing Things - Large Wall Clock

Hello Fellow Thrifters and Friends,

    I love those big clocks that you can read a mile away, and I found one awhile back at Good will that seemed as though it just needed a battery to get working again. I was very wrong because it needed a brand new clock mechanism. Mr Joyful Thrifter and I finally got around to fixing that clock over the weekend, and I love having it hanging in our living room. We even put new hands on it because the old ones were bent and sad.

I think it is a lovely clock. The details are so pretty. I bought the clock for $14.99, and the clock mechanism was $7.49 plus $1.99 for new hands. $24.47 for a beautiful clock is a great deal!

Have you found a treasure recently that needed a bit of fixing before you could use it?

  2. Oh this clock was definitely a good fin! I love the iron work inside the frame.

  3. The clock is great. And how clever that you got it working again. My dad gave me their antique Grandfather's clock but since I moved it, I can't get it back together again. I actually asked a man at Amvets the other day if he fixed clocks because he was very knowledgeable about watches. He came to my house that day to take a look. He said he'll be back. We'll see. My dad used to be able to fix them, but he's got dementia now and can no longer do it. So sad. This is probably TMI, as my kids say, but anyways, love the clock!!
