December 2020 Newsletter
Harp Rainbow
2020 has been an "interesting" year for everyone. Many customers have told me how much their harps have meant to them during these "stay at home" times. Here are some of the messages I've received.

* I've had a lot more time to practice, so my harp playing has greatly improved.

* I've been playing my harp in the back yard, and my elderly neighbor says that my music brings her joy. Although we are staying apart, the music has brought us together. She recently started making requests, so I'm learning lots of new repertoire. Your Favorites from the 50s and 22 Romantic Songs books have been invaluable. She told me today that she loves John Denver, so that book is next on my list.

* When I'm feeling overwhelmed, playing my harp is the one thing that calms me.

* I have never been able to travel to any of the harp workshops or festivals. But, since they were virtual this year, I participated in three of them. I LOVED being able to learn from many amazing players and teachers.

* My son plays the violin. As part of his homeschooling music class, we've been playing duets together.

I hope your harp has brought you joy and peace and in these stressful times. Here's to a "less-interesting" 2021.

Merry Christmas, Happy Chanukah, and Happy New Year!
Sylvia

P.S. Don't forget that you can order a Harp Center E-Gift Certificate as late as December 25th, and it will still arrive on-time for Christmas!
Santa in Hawaii
Christmas is just around the corner, so Santa and his elves are working non-stop to get everything ready for the big night. My elf contacts at the North Pole tell me that they will be delivering lots of harps and harp music this year. That is excellent news!

Do you know how Santa relaxes after Christmas? He leaves the cold, snowy North Pole and comes to Hawaii. It is true! Here are some actual photos of Santa taken through the years on Hawaiian beaches on December 26th.

The elves tell me that Santa is looking forward to his vacation and will be wearing his mask while in the islands. I hope he makes it to Kauai because I can't wait to see him!

Discontinued Harp Jewelry Sale
Large Pendant
I have been selling beautiful harp jewelry made by the Amethyst Dublin company in Ireland for almost 20 years. I recently emailed an order to be sure I had plenty of stock for Christmas. Here's the reply I received.

We have some very sad news. Due to Covid-19 and the current difficult market conditions, Amethyst Dublin has ceased trading. We would like to thank you all for your support and business over the years.

And so, unfortunately, I will no longer be able to sell this gorgeous jewelry. But here's the good news for you. All the remaining jewelry is on sale at 15% off with the Dublin promo code. My current stock ranges from only one pair of Brian Boru Shepherd's Crook Earrings up to 17 Celtic Legend Pewter Chokers. So, you need to order NOW if you want this harp jewelry.

If any of these items are missing from my site's jewelry category, or if an item says "Out of Stock," then I've run out. My apologies!
