Big Chuck Asks: Does Anybody Still Buy Grandfather Clocks?

ebay

Sure they have been around forever.  But does anybody really buy these gigantic timepieces any more?

Grandfather clocks have been in America for well, as long as there has been America.  Many immigrants brought them with them “from the old country” as one of their prize possessions.  They polished, them, tuned them, wound them and passed them on down to future generations.  And there they sit, in the hallways and foyers of a generation who tells time by looking at their cell phones of microwaves (what ever happened to watches, by the way).

New ones can cost several thousands of dollars  and they take up a lot of room in today’s sleek, downsized living quarters.

So I ask…really.  Does anybody buy these things any  more?
