Blog - Philip Smith Luthier
Violin Viola Cello Double Bass and their bows
I have been in my little shop at the "Paris end of St John St" for ten years, almost, and it has been sad to see this building bought by a developer with little sympathy for the heritage of the building. The recent redevelopment has changed the old and quirky character of this block and diminished the space available for my work and so it seems like the perfect opportunity to bite the bullet and move to a new and bigger space. I'll miss the neighbours though, Graham the horologist, the Milkbar guys who have fed and kept me in coffee for the last few months and the other interesting and diverse small business owners that operate on this end of the street.
I am yet to set the date for the move but will post it here and contatc all my customers once that has been confirmed.
Meanwhile the Philip Smith Luthier atelier progresses and I am looking forward to working and welcoming you there. Here are some pics of the work so far.
