Mervyn's Village Square - Clock Tower (1997):
I've decided that it's time to clear out all of the buildings and accessories that I have been collecting over the years but which I don't actually have room for on my Christmas display. Hopefully, my garage-cleaning provides an opportunity for you to find something you like. As a collector, I have tried very hard to not only find buildings which are in pristine condition, but also those with boxes and styrofoam in excellent condition (I try to note where this is not the case).
The 1997 and 1998 Clock Towers continue the Mervyn’s tradition of Clock Towers (from 1994, 95, 96); however this one is a little different that the previous ones in a couple of ways: As you can immediately see, its design is different, with the four separate vertical sections, and the more colorful red ground floor. Secondly, unlike the previous Clock Towers, which had a bell just painted onto the ceramic material, this Clock Tower actually has a free hanging separate bell that can swing back and forth. By the way, the only difference between the 1997 and 1998 Clock Towers is the time on the clock (and the date imprinted on the bottom). No matter which Clock Tower you decide to buy, they all make a great centerpiece to your Village Square (and they don’t take up much room!) The approximate dimensions of this tower are 4 x 4 x 12.
This building is in excellent condition (no visible chips, cracks, or scratches) with original box andoriginal styrofoam packaging. It comes with electrical cord (on/off switch) and light bulb as well (By the way, a NEW cord and light bulb at a craft store costs over $5!) The dimensions of this building are approximately6 x 6 x10 inches.
I pack all of these buildings in their own boxes and then in an exterior cardboard box, with lots of protective material inside the building box itself and between the building box and the exterior box. In the rare case of buildings without a Mervyn’s box, I am particularly careful to package them extra securely.
NOTE: Sorry about the high cost of Shipping (Postal Rates are really increasing). I most often use Fed Ex Smart Post, which is generally the cheapest (and slowest) method. Unfortunately, most of the Fiber Optic buildings are so large and heavy that Combined Shipping is not feasible -- either two buildings are two big for a single box, or you are charged more for one large, heavy box than you would have for two smaller ones. But when the items are smaller, I can Combine two (or more) items in one box to save you as much money as possible on Shipping costs. By the way, I only charge for postage, not packaging or "handling."
