Hi Carolyn, and welcome to the wonderful world of the Friends of the Mountain Dulcimer.  It's a good place to come, spend some time, learn about the dulcimer, and to meet some good people.

I’m starting with learning how to navigate the site! My first post will probably be asking for advice on buying one.

I used to visit that shop whenever I went there to visit my sister. It was a sad day the time I went, and it was closed

Back in 07 went to Colorado Springs to visit my brother in law. He took us to Manitou Springs where I bought a dulcimer kit. Bud and Donna Fords dulcimer shop. Too bad it's long gone now, but they had a lot of nice dulcimers there. Hope you find one to your liking.
