What are some of the rewards and good things to owning a shop like this?
I get to talk to customers. You get to know a lot of different people from everywhere. I have a lot of people come here from the Alhambra Theater and they don’t want to bring their own instruments. I get people from everywhere, actually. Sometimes it’s pretty cool. I can spend three or four hours a day just talking to people.
Do you get a lot of music students here?
Yeah, that’s where I have a lot of customers every day. They’re from all around Georgia to event Miami sometimes!
Well, you do run a violin shop. How cool is that?
It is cool (laughs). It really is if you think about the stress levels for normal business people. … from 1 to 10, it’s probably a 1 or 2, running a violin shop. You think about other businesses it’s up around 8 or 9.
