Tique-Tock Gifts and Antiques Offers Unique Finds in a Unique Setting.

If a building was ever destined to house an antique shop, it was the beautiful clock tower building which symbolizes our village. And transforming the building into an antique extravaganza called Tique-Tock is exactly what Tammy and David Redmond have done with the gorgeous, historic building located at 101 South Chillicothe Street.

As most of you know, the clock tower building housed the village hardware store for years and years. When Perry Yoder moved the hardware to it’s current location across from the fire station, the clock tower building held several different shops until the Redmonds opened Tique-Tock. In fact, Joe and I even took a look at the building as a possible location for the pharmacy before we built at our current spot.

The clock tower building was renovated in 2002-2003. From the twenty foot ceilings lined in tin to the gorgeous pine floors, buildings just are not constructed with this many beautiful details any more. The Redmonds have incorporated many of the lovely features, including a wall of cubbies and drawers and an original, Ohio-made sliding ladder (imagine multi-storied libraries in English manor houses if you need help visualizing this unique item) into their marketing scheme for the shop. Merchandise is featured to enhance the surroundings and vice versa.

The Redmonds opened Tique-Tock as a second career in their retirement years to share their love of antiques and charming collectibles.

Sitting below the giant four-sided Seth Thomas clock, which is thought to be one of only two of its size in the United States, Tique Tock offers not only an unusual shopping experience, but a chance to see all three floors of the clock tower building (over 4,000 square feet!). Inside the shop, you will find new items, as well as tons of antiques that have been around even longer than the clock tower itself. And if you don’t see what you are looking for, talk to Tammy and David about becoming your “personal pickers.” They’d be happy to help you find exactly what you want, even if they have to step outside their shop to find it.

Remember, by stopping at Tique-Tock when you need a special gift, you’ll be supporting the Plain City economy by shopping local.

Tique-Tock is open Mondays through Saturdays from 11 am to 6 pm and by special appointment. Contact Tammy and David Redmond at 614-506-6541 for more information. You can also email them at redmondta@gmail.com.
