see http://www.bois-blanc.com/phpBB2/viewtopic.php?t=1132

"Most people who are retired have had the opportunity to acquire just about every gift imaginable in their lifetime. That's why sometimes it can make gift buying a real chore when it comes to finding one for your retired friends and family members.

The DayClock is a great new idea in gift giving. It's the perfect gift for a retired person. Not only will it be a conversation piece and a fun gift to receive, it provides some great functionality for those on the road or on a "retired" schedule.

Don't you know someone who would love to own a DayClock? Don't you know someone who would get a good laugh and then put it to good use."
(from Dayclock site)

(frame available in oak (shown) or mahagony)



Guess what. I am NOW a day clock retailer!

A couple years back, I was reworking clock (faces) as customized gifts. Anything you want. Photo of your cottage, Aunt millie sitting on the deck, The BIG rock, an old BBI post card... whatever. Overlaid on any image would be the same face as on a standard day clock, in this instance, as shown above

ASAP, I will put together a DAY CLOCK with a customized BBI Face, maybe an ariel photo of the island or something as a demo of what can be done.

Great gift. UNIQUE.

How much? Retail is $39.95 (as shown above std.) plus S/H which is about what I would need to handle these in small lots. Custom faces more, depending on time.

We retailed direct on the net for years and are still set up as visa MC merchants. Any interest , PM-EM me and will see where it goes.

You can use one of my pictures if you want.
How big would the image have to be for a clock face?

I am still talking to these folks re buying the clocks as kits so I don't have to disassemble them to rework the face. I beleive the image size to be around 7-8" dia max. Most cases not that large if off centered. with room for face and any other text.

Any digital photo what would be high enough resolution to print cleanly at as 5x7 could be used.

Suggestions for a BBI dayclock have been: The pines hotel, coast guard chapel, lighthouse... sky or beach scenes, wildflowers or any other custom personal photo. Whatever anyone wants.

Suggestions welcomed.

We are getting late in the season as far as folks remaining on the island. Perhaps next spring they can be displayed at Hawks or the Tavern.

Appears they are in high demand because of the holidays coming. I am going to order some, work up some samples. I can then take some pictures of "what is possible".

Conis I like the clocks I want one. Do you have them made up or do you have to do that.

I can fix you up, either way.

Stand by, I am working to get a mini website up this afternoon which will answer the flood of questions... I hope.


Thanks for your interest!
CTD

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
Mini website appears to be up and running. subject to further updating and revision, of course

www.ats-sonic.com/2coolclocks

Of course, question #1 is HOW MUCH? I'll give my "fellow islanders" a deal off the starting line. I want to get these dayclocks into circulation ASAP
You won't be disappointed. Full refund if you are!

I hope to get a photo posted of a completed clock, perhaps later today.

I bought one of these clocks and it is very nice. And it is the topic of conservation all the time. It has a very nice picture of the Island on it also which is nice. Don't be afraid of buying one of these clocks. And if you get good you can even tell the time of day by it. I can come close right now.

Thanks for the vote of confidence!

I hardly expect to get rich from this "mad money enterprise". Maybe help off set summer expenses?

DAYCLOCKS were(was) started by two young guys who were wind sailing in the desert for a week. They were supposed to be picked up on "Friday". Except they couldn't figure if it was Wednesday or Thursday? Kind of like after a week on BBI...

These are a cool thing just to hang on the wall. As a reminder that life is short. Enjoy the day. Slow down a little: Leave "lunch hour" at the office.
