Once Upon a Time

(Living Space) Clocks found in local stores for collecting or for home decorating

Daylight Saving Time is no more, for now. Sunday, U.S. clocks moved one hour back, returning to Eastern Standard Time until March 8.

And while many smart phones, tablets and computers are programmed to automatically update their internal clocks, old-fashioned clocks must still be reset by hand.

Clocks have been around ever since ancient humans started looking for a way to measure times. Sundials came first, by some estimates as far back as 4,000 years ago. Today, clocks can be analog, digital or even talking.

Here are a few examples of clocks found in local stores for collecting or for home decorating.
