    Default Mim's Ukes - Kudos to Mim!

    Based on a few recommendations to check out Mim's Ukes, I was able to make my way down to Charlotte yesterday for a visit. My family enjoyed ice cream and all the wonderful ukes. Mim is just fantastic! We went to just check out ukes and enjoy some ice cream, but Mim's AWESOME customer service caused me to leave with a concert size Jazz Cutaway EleUke.

    I couldn't wait to get home and try it out. I really like the thought of being able to play with headphones in the evening and morning before the family wakes up. I am a total noob, but I really like the EleUke and plan on doing a review later. It is quite easy to play and my kids enjoyed me hooking it up to my amp today.

    If you are in Charlotte, NC, you owe it to yourself to swing by Mim's. Mim is very personable, she knows her ukes, and her ice cream.

    Yeah, Mims a cool chic. I bought a uke from her awhile back. She gave me an awesome deal, and over and above service. I hope she hangs around in the uke biz for a long time.

    BTW, welcome to the site, and congrats, nice looking Uke. And Mim, I didn't get any ice cream with my Uke!! Aww, no worries Sister, it probably wouldn't have made it in the mail anyway, lol.

    Thanks yall!

    I LOVE meeting UU people... new or established! It is my 2nd home here! Anyone I sell a uke too is my new friend... so it was great to have you in Eric!!! And your kids are a lot of fun! I got so weirdly busy too. Turns out it was a whole church youth group. Today is dead!

    I wish I could send ice cream to the people I ship to! But if you are ever in Charlotte, one is on me!

    You have to be careful... it may be an expensive trip just for ice cream... my shop has a tendency to make the darn nagging UAS infection flair up Heee!
