I was searching for Mim's website today, but received the "404" site not found message. Is ebay the only way to buy from Mim?

I am guessing that you are seeing some temporary problem and that the site will be up and running again today or tomorrow.

I emailed Mim as well as FB messaged her earlier this week and didn't hear back from her. :-(

How odd. I just got something similar. She is usually is running an online store apart from ebay. I wonder what's up? Even her contact number is down.

Just clicked on your link and it's working. Must be a temp glitch as someone above mentioned.

Earlier in the week both the website and her FB pages were accessible but she did not reply to email that I sent nor to a message on FB.....not sure why....did I forget to shower last week....:eek:

I was ready to buy...so ended up going with Lucysukes on ebay which turned out to be an equally excellent experience as when I worked with Mim which I have done in the past. ;)

OH MY GOSH I AM SO SORRY!

Facebook is a hard way to get ahold of me because the message shows up once and if it shows up on my phone it does not show up when I get back to my office so I forget about it.

Now e-mail there is no excuse for that unless it somehow got lost in the mix (it happens from time to time because I get about 100 e-mails a day, not all from customers, notifications, things like that). And if I get really busy (this week has been a weirdly busy week), i do sometimes get behind on e-mails! I am so sorry about that! I will try to be more punctual next time :)

Sorry... Godaddy had sent be an e-mail to renew and I thought I had more time (see... busy week... I did not even read my godaddy like I should... haha)!

SORRY GUYS!
BACK UP!

You can e-mail me too! mim@mimsukes.com

AND THIS TIME I WILL ANSWER!

I am going to set aside a couple hours this afternoon to catch up on e-mails!

BUT IT IS BACK!!!

Sorry about that! Doh!

DAG GONE IT! I would have sold you one too!
I know what happened now!
I saw your e-mail and knew it would take me a long time to respond because I wanted to get a little more info for you and it was a particularly busy day where I was trying to get things out by the post office. I just looked and it went into my "old mail" folder. Bad Mim... sorry about that!!! Anyway... dag nab it... that is what I get for not getting right to it!

You will enjoy your little Paulele for sure! They are super cute and have a nice plunky ukulele sound and the price is good!!!

Totally my bad on this one! Being a one-person show has it's benefits, but also sometimes something like this will slip through the cracks! But I am happy you tracked one down!

Yep... UAS is an serious affliction that must be fed ;)

Bought my Pono Tenor from Mim in February on a personal visit to Meadows of Dan. Excellent service was provided from a very busy lady. I don't know how she does it. She exhibited about ten ukes that I had requested. I highly recommend her for a uke purchase and if you get a chance to visit her in the mountains, you will see how beautiful this area is.
