My family has always loved grandfather clocks; I remember quite clearly there being a grandfather clock in every one of my family member’s homes – from my grandparents’ house to my own parents’ house. So a part of my childhood were grandfather clocks, that I could not conceive of starting my own home without having a clock that was all mine.
There are still a variety of grandfather clocks from which to choose – just as there was when my parents chose a grandfather clock to place in their living room. But today’s manufacturers are giving their modern customers more contemporary choices in terms of materials and styles. And the popularity of the Internet has spilled over into the world of clock retailers. There are a host of high-end suppliers that make their clocks available to the modern consumer online where they can browse through the product selection by style, manufacturer, and even price.
That makes shopping for grandfather clocks today easier than ever. So when I was ready to move into my first home I knew exactly what I was looking for in terms of a grandfather clock and exactly where to go to find it. I went online to the supplier that I had found, browsed through the contemporary selections of grandfather clocks (I wanted something that paid homage to the traditional grandfather clock style but still held its own amidst my more modern décor), found the grandfather clock that I wanted at the price that I could afford and purchased it within a matter of moments.
The clock of my dreams was shipped right to my door and now I am honoring family history by having a grandfather clock in my very own home.
