  • interesting shop also good at fixing clocks plenty to see walls full of clocks been there a long time 
  • I also went to this shop and my 5 year old daughter was also attacked by the nasty grey haired lady that owns the store. She grabbed her by the arms and shouted right in her face. My daughter had not touched any of her precious bloody clocks !!!! There should be a big sign out the front saying KIDS NOT WELCOME. I would not be surprised if one day a parent fights back and bashes that nasty old witch for assaulting children !!!! BOYCOTT THIS PLACE
  • Was in this shop the other day when the Crabbie old Lady that owns the shop went off at the poor little boy that was just walking around to he's Mum from he's Nan. He was walking in the middle of the aisle not touching anything. Nan was watching him while she stood with the older boy and this woman went off at him for no reason. Poor little Guy had no idea what he was getting into trouble for which was nothing I went in to buy a clock but after seeing this Old Woman in action I walked out. There are ways of speaking to people without being rude. This woman should be ashamed of herself or maybe its time for her to retire
  • Very fascinating shop, a memorable visit:-) Every clock u could imagine, having 'just one' going would add to atmosphere I think .. owner happily took time to have a chat with me + answer all my queries. Highly reccomend to visit :-)
  • Quaint cuckoo clock specialist store at the tourist strip of Mt. Tamborine. Probably has every cuckoo clock you ever wanted or never imagined you wanted until you are there. The owners were a lovely couple who, despite been extremely busy during it's peak Saturday period, still managed to answer my wife and I's many ignorant questions in a friendly and helpful manner. We happily walked away with a brand new clock.
  • I loved that I could see the shop again when I was on the bus going down the coast showing my friends what they missed was so cool to be able to walk around your wonderful shop again on my phone and zoom in on anything I wanted to check out..great way to shop thank you for a great experience xT
