He says he's been crazy about antiques since he was three years old, but it all started out pretty traumatically.
"My obsession in life was washing machines until my sister put me in one and it traumatized me," he says.
"The only thing that calmed me down was my Mom sent me to the neighbours' and my neighbour gave me her cuckoo clock because I was fascinated with it. And I’ve been collecting clocks since, almost as a comfort thing."
Yaciuk not only collects and sells cuckoo clocks, but he also has a workshop in the barn where he repairs and restores clocks.
He also collects music boxes and different kinds of animated and wind-up toys, but cuckoo clocks are special because they combine all of his favourite things.
"The cuckoo clock is everything compressed into one," he says. "You've got your music box, you've got your animated figures, you've got the mechanics all in one little, bunched up box."
Yaciuk's shop also boasts an impressive collection of Hummel figurines.
Yaciuk says he looks forward to selling his wares at this year's SeaSalt Antiques and Vintage Market Saturday, June 10 in the Anthony Pavilion behind the Mariners Centre.
"I'm excited. It'll be great, for sure," he says.
