How much?

Today, I took my chiming clock to be repaired. The last time it was overhauled I paid £45. Imagine my horror when I was told that they would prepare an estimate which would be around £300. And I have 2 other beautiful clocks which also don't work -- but they will probably be seen and not heard!!

Now, to take my mind off all this I made some ATCs and they are on ebay ::5girls Boyhat George


  1. Well now these are great my dear!! and sooooooooo sorry about the clock!!! that is such a pain since you want to use it but not all at the cost of 2 arms and a leg!!! hope they will do a good job!!! and nice Ebay listings way to go!! keep it up!!big hugs FGM!!!!

  2. Oooh, I have been away a couple of days and come back to see lots of beautiful artwork in your blog - beautiful danglies, painting and cards - good luck with the auctions - maybe they will go to pay for the clock repairs!

  3. Kari, I'm not going to let them rip me off so am taking the clock elsewhere. Although it saddens me that they have become so greedy - it's been the clock repair shop since my grandfather's time. On to pastures new !!!
