Anyone need a fiberglass sousaphone?

I thought the summer days at work would be boring, but it didn't turn out that way. I ended up working at our Charleston office for almost three weeks. We were doing inventory and we have 5 garages (that's right five) that had stuff in piles and they didn't know what to do with it all. I suggest that we build shelves and organize a bit. The boss agreed. So I went out and spent a lot of his money buying steel shelves and assembling them in the garages after everything was taken out. I was able to get one picture while working. We could not believe the amount of fiberglass sousaphones he had.
After two and a half weeks or so, I built 20 steel shelves, and one from scratch
(wood). Stephanie said I should have taken pictures and put it in her make it from scratch carnival, but I was only able to take the two pictures.
you can see from the picture on the left, that there are four garages on the right hand side. That is how much stuff we have. I convinced him to throw things out that needed to be tossed, but we are still saving more stuff to be rebuilt and sold at a later date.




You can see the size of the garage and what is looked like after we took all the sousaphones out.


So, now that I am in Huntington, I have a load of stuff to list on Ebay, and I have to gear up and get ready for band camps. Then you wont see me until October. Between all the things going on at the farm, and work. I should be pretty busy. Follow me on Twitter for a more rants and raves.

So, what is the difference between a sousaphone and a Tuba?

I actually DO need a fiberglass sousaphone! Do you still have these, and if so, are you just tossing or selling or what?

Please respond.
