|Whether it is a basic bong-bong-bong or a thrilling symphony, the sound of a grandfather clock faithfully chiming the hour is music to the ears for many people. However, the high price tag makes the clock strikes flat for the majority. Most people are simply unable or unwilling to spend thousands of dollars for a clock, no matter how beautiful or rich-sounding. However, these people do have alternatives.
Discount grandfather clocks are available for the budget-minded consumer. Many online companies sell grandfather clocks at reasonable prices. Furniture 2 Your Door, for example, offers a walnut finish grandfather clock with chime for $220.
Local discount furniture stores are also good options for discount grandfather clocks. Discount stores often sell decorative grandfather clocks, sometimes for under $200. While these cheap grandfather clocks may not be heirloom-quality, they can still be heirloom beautiful. If your main concern is to have an attractive piece of furniture without breaking the bank, these discount grandfather clocks are a good choice.
You can also buy higher quality clocks for less at online stores. One such outlet recently offered a Howard Miller Reigel grandfather clock for $1755; much less than its list price of $2925. One note about buying from online stores: make sure you include the shipping charges when you are comparing prices. This often overlooked aspect can make a huge difference. Sometimes it is worthwhile to pay a bit more at a local company or an online one that offers free shipping.
It is also possible to find undiscovered treasures at flea markets or garage sales. Sometimes people will unwittingly sell a high-quality grandfather clock for mere dollars. More often, however, you get exactly what you paid for—a good-looking albeit cheap clock. Unless you are knowledgeable in grandfather clocks, do not assume you have struck gold. Enjoy the clock for its looks, and if it turns out to be valuable that will be an added bonus.
If you have no interest in collecting clocks or reselling them, it is quite possible to own a beautiful grandfather clock at a discount price. Money saved is music to everyone’s ears.
