I took the picture of the stairwell, and have since learned I was mistaken– that door was NOT the entrance to the former Abel's lounge. Those stairs are next door and are now the (much more attractive) entrance to the recently opened Shackett's brew pub, which not only serves locally crafted beers, but once again hosts live music!
There are soo many factors to take into account w/ an accordion. Lucky for me I live 20 minutes from the Accordion Connection in NH and they have always given me honest appraisals. There are also good accordion shops in Philly & NY. I'd continue surfing: ebay, accordion stores, etc. Then pick a number and go on Craigslist. I can't even remember now what my Camerano sold for...needed some work (they always do). 300? 500?
to Mike K - you are right, of course. Thanks.
update: it is now 2012; I have been using that same stand for 6 years, and it looks a little beaten up, but is holding up fine. (and i still have the quik-lok stand in the cellar if you want to make me an offer!)
what a memorable night! our host, the owner of this beautiful house in the woods overlooking a gorge on the seneca(?) river, was so good to us; and the audience was... beyond attentive and appreciative! we'll be back in the area in plattsburgh in august and hope to see some of these new friends again then.
