Craigslist redemption

Posted on

Piano keys and sheet musicIn my blog post, BEWARE of this Craigslist scam, I highlighted an online crime that almost succeeded in robbing one of my family members.  He posted a piano for sale – a piano that needed quite a bit of work to make it operational – and he almost got taken to the cleaners.  (Read the BEWARE article for the details.)

A couple weeks later, a true lover of all-things piano contacted my family member and said he was interested in purchasing the piano and he and his wife wanted to have a look-see.  The couple arrived – a couple in their 80s – and when the husband took one look at the beat up piano he said, “You’ve got a deal!”

Piano restorationIt turns out, this fellow is an expert at restoring pianos.  For years now, he’s been buying pianos that are on their last legs; he restores them and gives them to children who would otherwise not be able to own a piano.  What a fabulous gift these future piano virtuosos – and their parents – receive because of this couple’s “ministry” of helping young musicians.

I’m thrilled I was able to provide this Craigslist redemption story that – in my mind – wipes out the bad taste in my mouth from the previous one.
