David!

Great site witrh many good additions for the whistles. I can't believe you've been able to collect so many good whistles for sale from the get-go, especially the Grinter and Overton Low F. So tempting.

Good work.

Great looking site David!~! I like the sound clips with the flutes for sale. But I don't have any money right now!

It's well thought out and easy to navigate. The pics are good. And I like the fact that when you move the mouse over an item for sale, it will tell that the flute is sold, before you go it. But David I don't have any money!

To many instruments not enough money!!!

All in all a great site.

Mark

Thanks for the comments, Mark!
Leads me to a thought: I've been considering whether to allow lay-aways on instruments as some people would love to buy, but can't get the funds into one bulk for such a purchase. I hate thinking (as i once felt) that a flute I'd love to own is out of my immediate grasp. I wonder if such a layaway thing would appeal to you guys out there? If so, thoughts on how best to approach it?

Hi David:

Maybe you could require something like 50% upfront and if someone can pay the balance within say, 3 months, the flute is his or hers.

I don't know that 50% down is even necessary, unless cash flow is an issue. I would simply have a minimum monthly amount (say $50) that you would accept until the flute is purchased. It does create more 'paper work' on your end, but sounds like you're willing to do it.

I was just kidding about the price of a excellent flute. It's not the price but the Canadian exchange that is the killer. And it makes quality flutes almost out of range right now or in the near future --$.30 to $.40 cents on the US dollar, depending on the phase of the moon in conjuction with the unseen black matter, and when snails grow legs.

The idea of lay-away isn't a bad idea, but the paperwork could be a draw back, and too much work for one person and repair and mend flutes.

I recently finished paying for a button accordion that was about $1,000 (US). I'm still waiting for it to be made/delivered, but at least it's payed for. While I've come close to spending that much TOTAL on whistles, it will the largest single purchase I've ever made (except for my car). I would never have been able to save up that much on my own...It would have burned a hole through my pocket. I don't use credit cards, so lay-away was the only option that worked for me. I'm sure people would use the service.
