It was bound to happen, I guess. I'm noticing that some of my favorite ukes have recently gone up quite a bit in price. Like $100 or more for the same uke I got several months ago. It makes me kind of glad that I gave into my impulsive side and bought a couple ukes I had been wanting when they became available, like my Tiny Tenor, the AMM3, and several other ukes. We all know one of effects of the pandemic has been on the supply and costs of goods in general. I work in a large retail environment and am responsible for making daily price changes, so I can see these increases on a daily basis - with some goods more than doubling their prices overnight. While I'm so grateful that I and my family have been able to stay healthy through this last year and a half, and I realize that this is more important than any material possessions, I do wonder what's going to happen to the prices of our beloved ukes long term.
