Full of eye candy and interest. There was an art gallery in our neighborhood, in an artist's home. He built every feature himself. In it was the most fascinating collection of art--some of it his own And there was always a guitar standing in the corner. I asked him about it, and he told me that once a month he serves wine and cheese in the gallery and he plays the guitar. I kept meaning to attend, but suddenly he moved back to his home on an isle in Greece. I have some of his unusual paintings on glass. I wonder if the pictured violin ever gets played in the shop. #10514425

Thank you all.
Yes, Michelle, the violin does get played in the shop. The entire family (husband, wife, teenage son and daughter) assume roles at the fort on living history weekends - they are all passionate about their work and also about music. I don't know what other instruments the sutler plays, but his son plays the bagpipes (Scots ancestry) and his wife plays a number of instruments including a flute, penny whistle, and dulcimer. Not sure about the daughter. All of them bring instruments to the fort on occasion and play period music to enhance the atmosphere for visitors and fellow re-enactors. #10514674

A corner of the sutler store at Fort Atkinson, Nebraska, and the merchandise it holds. The violin belongs to the sutler; the rest of the goods are for sale.
