Our favorite show of the year, the Reno Ukulele Festival, is right around the corner. After a very successful show in Palm Springs in February, we hit the ground running and went right back to the shop. And now, after a lot of steady work, we’re ready for Reno with a full inventory of ukuleles. It was fun to meet a lot of new people down in SoCal but it’s back to our roots at the Reno Ukulele Festival. Not so many years ago, it was the very first show we ever attended. With three ukuleles in hand, we went wide-eyed to the festival and had an absolute ball! And we’ve been back every year since.

Now it’s like “old home week” visiting with new and old friends and customers. It’s great to see instruments that we’ve sold in previous years, to see how their “wabi-sabi” finishes are coming along and to hear how their voices have developed. We’ve got new shirts and have added sweatshirts this year so we can outfit our friends and fans. We’re looking forward to seeing everyone. See you all in just a few days!
