(from their site) - From the beginning.....GuitarSam (originally called Play It Again Sam) opened March 4, 1981 in Montpelier, VT, which is the smallest capitol city in the United States, and the only state capitol without a McDonalds. We started out in 360 square feet of retail space, and four years later moved into 750 square feet. Eighteen months after that we knocked out a wall leading to an adjacent store and doubled our showroom area, and also added additional space for warehousing. (We performed this project at night so our landlord wouldn't suspect anything) Today we enjoy about 2000 square feet of retail, repair, and office space.

(from their site) Instructor Kent Knorr enjoys expanding his students' cultural horizons by blending lively music instruction with the history of the ukulele and an understanding of the concept of Aloha
We teach the ukulele to inspire creative expression. To open minds. To plant the seed of lifelong learning. And to share with everyone the exhilaration of playing music.
Our program gives all ages the power to make music. We teach the skills that open the door to improvisation, ease of playing and the confidence to play for others. And it's all with the ukulele, one of the easiest stringed instruments to learn and play.

Really nice article on Smiley and Janet and their Ukulele Source store.
( from listing's site ) - Smiley and Janet Kia's dream of opening Ukulele Source came true in September 2008. They also have another business,Pumehana Productions where wtheye, along with our partner and good friend Susie Kagami of Hawaii Music Live produce and promote Hawaiian music concerts, workshops, and private lessons with legends like Herb Ohta,Jr, Ohta-San, George Kahumoku, Jr, Keoki Kahumoku, and Nathan Aweau. So with the encouragement and support of Susie, Herb, Jr and their other good friend, Jim Nagareda of Nikkei Traditions, they opened our door on September 5, 2008. They wanted more than just a ‘ukulele store. We wanted a place where people could come in, check out all the different styles, makers, and most importantly, be able to play them and hear what they actually sound like before making a purchase. They carry what they feel are the best ‘ukuleles to fit any pocketbook.
