"The Old-Clock shop" is a short story about the interaction of people and how festive seasons bring well-being to them. In this story, there is an old deaf person named Ray. He repairs watches in his shop in Salt Lake City, USA. The story is about an Old-Clock shop where the owner faces an unfriendly visitor at the late hour. What is the purpose of the visitor? He does not seem to be a buyer. The unfriendly face of the visitor turned truly friendly when he got a fifty-dollar note for his ordinary watch. Both Ray and the older man knew that the watch was not worth that much money. So, the older man genuinely felt obliged for Ray's kindness.
