Hopefully this will be the last blog I write as a childless Arizona piano store owner! My wife Laurie is 4 days over due (due date was Ocobcer 4th) and we are both very excited to meet our son. Since he is our first child, this is all new to us. As you can
imagine, I have been distracted at the shop lately… Since we didn’t know when he was coming I stopped the California trips and started buying used pianos in Arizona. The last thing I wanted was to miss the birth of my son because I was stuck in the middle of a move in California! Thanks to a great friend of mine, Levon Aslanyan (local piano technician) I was able to find a few great used baby grand pianos for sale in Arizona which has allowed me to stay in AZ since October 20th.
This weekend we sold two great baby grand pianos. The first was a Conover Cable Satin baby grand piano that we got from a seller in Fountain Hills just a couple weeks ago. The buyer was a very talented woman who recently move to Arizona from
Illinois with her boyfriend. She loved the way the Conover played/ looked and at the low price of $4,500, it was a no brainer! The second used baby grand piano we sold was to a couple in Scottsdale who used to live in Tempe right near our shop! The wife is a very talented pianist and has not had room for a grand piano until just recently. Since their lighting business has been growing and doing well, they thought it was time to invest some of that money into a beautiful high gloss black Hobart M. Cable used baby grand piano.
Because of the pending change in my life (Josiah Gregory Stilwell), I have been sending out my movers to deliver these pianos without me. This is very hard for me… I am some what of a control freak and I truly enjoy seeing the happy faces of my clients after we position their new baby grand piano in their Arizona home. Although my wife likes that I am a lot more available, it is still hard to “let go” like this. I have built this business by being the “face” of Stilwell Pianos and doing all of the work. I know that I wont be able to to this for ever but I still want to be a part of as much as I possibly can…
