Just a quick note  [full details later ]

Acorn Instruments will be opening a showroom for Melodeons and Accordions at Stillington,North Yorkshire in March.

We get the keys beginning of the month and will have a bit of stuff to do.

There are B&Bs and cottages locally if you want a short break whilst trying out instruments and 2 pubs that serve food and a chippy in the village.

Look forward to seeing existing and new customers.

My other melodeon's a fiddle, but one of my Hohners has six strings! I also play a very red Hawkins Bazaar in C and a generic Klingenthaler spoon bass in F.!! My other pets (played) are gobirons - Hohner Marine Band in C, Hohner Tremolo in D and a Chinese Thingy Tremolo in G.

In a few months I'll be living close enough to be able to pop in for a morning or afternoon. Could be useful, or perhaps dangerous!

Good news and good luck. You're far too close to me. I'm working in York in mid-March but will travel by train to avoid the car taking an automatic detour. Mind you, it would be churlish not to attend a Grand Opening Ceremony for social reasons, don't ya know.

Don't worry,there will be something organized but this has happened so fast.  I was supposed to be renting a small office with space for customers to just come and sit and play specific  instruments,When I came back from the accordion festival in Eastbourne last weekend I was offered something slightly different as a tenant had suddenly decided to move out.
I will have something approaching 50s/m  so lots to sort out ,insurance,security etc.

Will let everone know,don't worry

From what I hear, you might soon need a New Zealand showroom  :|glug
Best of luck with it. It also sounds like you'll also need serious tea and coffee making facilities.
