For years, Dullstroom has been a constant fixture on our drives to the Kruger Park.
We always stop there.
We always eat there.
And we always shop*** there.
From a pretty but small stop-over in the late 1990s, we have seen Dullstroom grow into an increasingly sophisticated little place, complete with smart shops and smart places to eat.
One of the fun shops we always visit in Dullstroom is The Clock Shop, which sells clocks (obviously) but in quantities you never knew existed, in every shape, size, design and colour of the rainbow.
To wit :
There are theme-based clocks:
There really is something to suit every taste and budget, from cheap ‘n cheerful, to kitschy, as well as seriously expensive.
By expensive, think fabulous old grandfather clocks:
There are some clever designs:
There is a repair shop :
So yes, all in all, pretty much clock heaven, I’d say.
Oh come on, watch the video clip below, and then tell me – who doesn’t secretly rather like a cuckoo clock?
Oh yes, those *** up top.
This is what we bought last month in The Clock Shop :
We bought the bird song version, which I promptly hung up in my Delhi study, and once an hour I am transported back to Africa.
The shop is on the main street. Just ask anyone where it is. It’s that kind of place.
