Gone Shopping!

This is the eye candy which awaits us this morning! My 15 year old son Tim has just had a period of rapid growth so is now ready for a full size cello. He started having lessons at the age of 7 on a tiny little quarter-size! But now we are ready for the real thing. But is my purse? We are taking big sister Sophie to help us as she's home from uni at the moment.

The dealer has a showroom in an old chapel and its just a magical place to visit. Wish me luck!


PS Yes, we did get the cello! Will do a separate post on this later in the week.


  1. What a wonderful array - good luck in choosing. i didn't realise that they came in smaller sizes, logical I suppose if you think about it.

  2. Oh wow!! I love the cello! My son played the cello for a few years, but then just gave it up :-( Very sad day. My daughter plays the violin and another son used to play the viola. I always hoped they would play together. Daughter plays with a string trio for weddings etc. But I DO understand the $$$ part on these instruments. It can be painful. Hope your son finds just the "right" one.

  3. And what was the outcome? Did you manage to purchase one??
