We could make you a clock in a day, but it would show. The real deal takes from 3 to 5 business days for us to make and ship. We've been told it’s well worth the wait.
How should I care for my Goathopper wall clock?
The tough pallet wood from your clock has been battered by forklifts, rain and abuse so it’s not especially needy. While we don’t recommend leaving it in the elements without cover, a Goathopper presently works just fine on a screened porch where last year it ranged from a bitter 5 to a humid 104 degrees.
Why do you use old pallet wood?
All of our wood is 100% re-purposed so no trees are sacrificed. Moreover, when you buy a clock, we plant a tree. We've been called tree huggers on more than one occasion and we're proud of it.
It's tough. The blue collar of wood. Otherwise it would not have been selected for pallet duty. Right?
In a previous life our reclaimed pallet wood delivered everything from olive oil to umbrellas so each plank has a story to tell. Every bump and nick along the way adds up to a weathered, rustic, farmhouse complexion.
What is a Goathopper?
Legend is in many Caribbean villages there used to exist a man called the Goathopper. He would collect from your land all the dried goat dung, prized for its use as a fuel and in making coffee. As payment for his service he would keep 1/2 of the day's dung collection and offer it for sale on his route. Goathoppers were a cheerful and happy go lucky sort and were quick with an amusing joke or story. Our mission is to infuse the Goathopper's spirit into every handmade, rustic farmhouse wall clock.
