Clock and collectible shop opens


Movements Clocks and Collectibles, a specialty clock and repair shop off Campbell Station Road, opened its doors in early October.

Mark and Debra Danner, owners, relocated the store from Cookeville.

“It’s a nice area; there’s a lot of shopping [and] it’s a high-traffic area,” Mark said of Farragut.

Danner feels his store is unique: “All my sales reps and manufacturers, they all said there’s not a store like mine in Knoxville.

“We carry all kinds of clocks, from children’s clocks to high-end grandfather clocks,” he said.


In addition to wall, mantel, novelty and cuckoo clocks, the store carries Fenton art glass.

Fenton, a 100-year-old West Virginia company, makes blown-glass baskets, vases, lamps and collectible pieces in a variety of colors.

“I have a lot of collectors come in, looking for new pieces or for something different,” Mark said.

Movements Clocks and Collectibles also provides a full line of repair work on clocks.

“We also do in-home service for people who own grandfather clocks that need to be worked on,” he said.

“I’ve been doing repair work for just about 10 years,” he added.

The repair knowledge came about after Danner was unable to find anyone to fix his clocks.

“I had clocks of my own and repairmen are few and far between … there’s not many of us around,” he said.

“I couldn’t find anybody to work on mine.

“I’m mechanically inclined enough that I took it out, studied it a little bit, looked at how it worked and operated. One thing led to another and here I am,” he added.
