How do you get Gnomes?

I haven't played for about a week as I am in a huff because my main game has crashed, well its lagged big time, i've tried everything suggested on here to no avail.

I had 3 saved games and it's only happened to this one.

It you have tried everything else, you can get gnomes in "buydebug".  If your a gem collector and you send your gems to get cut, sometimes you get a gnome instead of your gem back.  Also, you can acquire gnomes by having your sim fish, but that is a hit or miss deal.  I have had sims fish constantly and never get a gnome and then I will have a sim fish for the first time and pull in a gnome.   :)
Is it true that cannibals don't eat clowns because they taste funny?

I've gotten some while tomb raiding and bought one at the consignment shop.

The three foreign gnomes can be found at the museum in France, second floor on pedestals. Unless they've run off... I've met them in different places at the museum sometimes.
You can just grab them and pull them into your inventory. You can put something else on the pedestals if you feel bad about stealing.

Most of the gnomes I got were from fishing, they mostly appear by fishing in that lake with a waterfall in Riverview. I also get to catch gnomes while fishing in the cemetary pool looking for a death fish, but catch a gnome instead. Good Luck!

It's my birthday this month and I've asked for ambitions and late night, my friend bought world adventures from asda for £10 last week so I am going to see if they still have it today when I go.

I had one that would inch towards the time machine every night (might've been the inventing one, iirc) and it just disappeared one day and never came back. Seriously. I looked everywhere and I reckon it disappeared into the time machine, however, I've been unable to find any posts or anything via Google about that happening XD

Today my mysterious elder gnome was balanced standing upon his cane. :D

Here is a gnome swarm at my oldest family's house. I have pics of even bigger swarms, but they didn't come out to well because they were taken at night. If you have Ambitions and the Miner, you will end up with a scary number of gnomes very quickly.

Welcome to the forum, jclima.  That's quite a gang of gnomes!  They look like they're holding some sort of meeting.  I wonder what those little rascals are plotting ...  ;)

Could it be the old gnome laying in the middle is passing away or something? Like when our sims gather for the grim reaper.

I've had even more gnomes gathered at once, but they gather at night and start to break up during the day, so those pictures aren't that good. They do seem to circle around one gnome, but it is a different gnome every time, and it isn't aging up or dying or anything.

Has anyone else noticed odd Gnome behavior of their household gnomes?  My Sultan Sam has completely disappeared since install.  He's no longer a member of my household.  All of the others randomly move around but every night they gather in a circle randomly in the yard.

This reminds me of the creepy kids who gather in an abandoned house in Goldshire in World of Warcraft. They go there around 5 am server time, to an upstairs room, and stand at the points of an imaginary pentagram. After a while they disperse, only to return 24 hours later.
