Taikura Fete

Sunday 17th was the day for the school fair at Taikura Rudolf Seiner School in Hastings.  For Identity purposes and savvy marketing it is called a "Fete", which is a french word with a letter I don't have on my keyboard.  Lots of people come to the Fete, and I have been there for five or six years with my pipes.

This year I was well prepared with lots of Two Dollar and Five Dollar items.  I made lots of Dog Whistles[DW], some of which made a lot of noise.  These were for the nine year old boys...  tearaways.  Then I had mini Okarinas, which were like the dog whistles, but the node made a sealed end, instead of being open like the DW.  These were for the more modest yoUng student who liked just tooting.  I also had lots of bamboo pipes, with "random" tuning.  That is I cut all the bamboos  to the same length and installed the holes so that what ever the pipes bass note was , became the tuning pitch.

I had a lot of older stock, either older models not yet sold or constellation pipes that were too sharp or flat to be considered part of a tuned set.   

I had some very nice pipes from 2010 that I sold for $10 and a half dozen perfect "Constellation Pipes"  for $30.  

The $2 and $5 items went out fast.  The $10 pipes weren't slow to sell either.  I sold two perfect Contellation pipes.

I am including   foto from the newspaper, taken of a young man choosing a pipe and learning to play a few notes.

Cheers Chris the Pipemaker.

Can help the well-chosen selection components. Among them might be hard tile Choosing the actual decor and incapacitated in some cases employed to select something

Yes the well chosen selection components are chosen with selection in mind. You will find choosint the right components an arduous task. The decor of the flutes is improving as I now use a much better burner. Cheers Chris and thanks for your comment.
