My wife took me to a small shop that offers locally made items of small size and decent quality. Normally, I do not pay that much attention, but at one place a bell went off in my head and I saw dollar signs. One local guy apparently obtains things like small humidity gauges, clocks, barometers, etc., and makes wooden frames, display cases, and stands for them as decorating items. People (mostly women, I suppose) buy the things, because they are “hand made” and not cranked out on some Far Eastern assembly line.
I could easily make such items, but what I do not know is where he gets the small clocks, gauges, and other doodads that he attaches to or inlays into the assorted stands and frames.
Anybody here have a source for such items – cheap?
