Fiddlerman mentioned the FedEx contest in a thread I started. It was funny, because the night before, while searching for links to items for a future order to add to my list on my Fiddlershop shopping list on my notepad, I also checked for some  information on all his blogs, I ran across this neat little ditty. Remember when Fiddlerman mentioned the FedEx contest? Here is the blog link:

Fiddlershop In Memphis


I love the added information I learned about your shop, the charity work with music. That makes it much more satisfying that I found your site. I have found your customer service to be first class. I love your many free videos, PDF’s, Forum activity, etc. Your business ethics are those of a business I prefer to support. As a result, I shop for all my string instrument needs on your site, first, when possible. You and Michael deserve this win. Because I do not want to turn this into a sales pitch, but just a well-deserved CONGRATULATIONS!, that is all I will say. Your staff gets a well deserved congratulations, also.

I think the video you made for the contest was perfect. Obviously, FedEx also thought so.

I hope you don’t mind my posting this. You can’t reach it from the Blog option in the menu bar at the top of the Forum page. I was checking your site to make a list of things on my notepad with links, for my next order. I noticed the Blog, News, etc menu options there. I decided to see what other information I could find for help. From the Blog section, I was able to see this November 7, 2018 blog post about Fiddlershop in Memphis.

When I am in the forum and touch the Blog option in the menu bar at the top of the forum page, this blog does not appear. The last blog you can see is November 1, 2018 from the Blog in the Forum menu. So, again, here is the link to the blog with the FedEx video, photos, and contest results for everyone who may have missed it due to checking the blogs via the forum, or who may not have checked the blogs in a while. Excellent video entry.

@cid thank you for posting the Memphis link. Well made and a pleasure to watch and to see all the folks that I've talked to (especially Clare). 

Well deserved recognition from FedEx.
