Ukulele Window Shopping

I’ve been cooing over the 4-figure vintage ukes this week:

* 1920s Martin 5K
* Style 3 Taropatch
* 1920s Martin 3K
* Gibson Uke 3

Lest you think using ukuleles in ads is a recent development: Ansco and Miller.

Ukulele kitsch: The battle for tackiest ukulele Christmas ornament is as heated as ever with wooing Santa taking the prize. The seller of this uke-heavy shirt was obviously unsure of it attracting attention on its own merits.

    It’s a used shirt, size small. Maybe it’s her shirt.One could only hope.

    Rob: I think that’s a very generous assumption.

    daniel: Oh lord, I just looked. This is one of the more tasteful shots!
