Or perhaps during the execution by guillotine of former King Louis XVI and Marie Antoinette. Who can say? But this sizable classic wall clock at Clocktiques in Wake Forest — home to grandfather clocks, table-top clocks, and all sorts of timepieces — most certainly has some secrets, dating to the 1700s or so. Consider this script on its face: "il chattillon en bazois." That is the name of a little village in Burgundy, with a canal named Nivernais popular for river cruises. It is also home to a feudal fortress, once home to Charles the Bold, that is now a luxury hotel called "Chateau Chatillon-en- Bazois." "No archer's arrow has been seen for nearly 500 years," reads the hotel's ad copy.

It's like olive oil but you can cook with it at a high heat," said Tim Forrest, who runs the store with his artist father, Nathan. The Neomega brand avocado oils — like just about everything at the shop — are North Carolina natives, manufactured in Hillsborough by a company founded in 2016 by a Cary mother of three, Judit Beres, a clinical researcher now embracing the "Let food be thy medicine!" mantra. There are even "infused" varieties, among them chili pepper, basil, and rosemary roasted garlic. And, they come in a gift set. The shop's Tim Forrest, for one, swears by the oils.
