@Fiddlerman Congratulations on your new store! I am sure you will have great success.

i hope you pick up some new customers from that delicious store next door! 

If I ever go to east Florida, I will stop by, don’t hold your breath though. Unfortunately, our trips are only elsewhere. You know, have to see those granddaughters. But, you never know.

Anyway, to you and all of your hard working, customer service oriented, talented and most friendly staff, CONGRATULATIONS!

Wow! The new digs look beautiful from the outside. Can't wait to see pics of the inside once you are all settled. To a long and successful stay in your new home. 1st-place

Congratulations on this! 

Where might thou find this storefront picture so well spoken of? smileThe front doesn't matter to me. If there are violins in there I would go in to look. An added pleasure would be to meet Pierre. If you give me coffee you'll need to pry my cold dead hands from the door come closing time.

Good luck with the new venture!

It is the Fiddlershop Deluxe. It offers greater fuller balanced volume. The new Fiddlershop Deluxe offers a fragrant bouquet of clear tonal values. From the dark, mysterious, sensuous, eloquent, solemn sounds, to the brilliant, sparkling, vibrant, airy sounds that represent the best a violin has to offer the ears. All of this is finished off with the best coffee in Florida.

Thank you Moonshadows. That email must have gone to my spam folder. I google mapped it to get an idea where it was located. 

Fiddlerman also has a talent for building facelift/renovation. Lordy Pierre, do you have a basketball court in there? 🙂 That's a lot of Sq. Ft.....and not far from the beach! 

I had no idea you were located so far south in Florida. Just a hop and a skip to the Bahamas and Panama. About where I would expect a guy to live who likes boats.

I wish it was closer, but then you would probably never get rid of me.

Agree glad to see any business grow and do well.

May I suggest you do a video walk through showing the new location. But even without that Good Going!

Good suggestion, @DrMike

I like the idea of a video walk through, too. At least for those of us who will not get to the new place any time soon, it would be real nice.

I totally agree and would love a video walk through! Maybe some nice low volume wonderful violin music in the background. 

Video walk throughs are great. I did that last Summer in my kitchen for daughters and son. My husband did an awesome (usually hate that word, so over used) job redoing it. It is fabulous now, and on a shoestring budget! I am still amazed and in love with it when I go into it. But the walk through is a wonderful way to show your area. 

I would so much love to take a trip to Pompano Beach, FL. I don’t see it in the cards though. If we were water people, it would probably have a shot, but we don’t boat, we probably don’t float. 

We want to see what it looks like to pull into the parking lot, to enter, to view the instruments, assistance to try the instruments, the fabulous Clare (she has always been my contact, and Michael occasionally), the studio, the luthier shop, etc. What it would be like to buy one there in the shop. Oh, don’t forget that coffee station!

@cid and others.  A glorious missed opportunity.  It would have been fun to dumpster dive at the old shop during the past couple of weeks.

@Irv That is funny! It sure would have. I think it would have been worth aggravating a bad knee! “Come on, knee! You can do it. Bend, bend darn you, knee!”. So worth it.

Dumpster Dive Sale! Oh, new idea for stores. Sounds very enticng.

@cid .  All you needed to do was hold the flash light and point.  I would have happily retrieved.
