Welcome to our harp ads section!   If you are looking for a harp or harp merchandise to buy, sell, or rent, take a look at the offerings below.  If you are in the Pacific Northwest and have a harp that needs a new home, contact us at  info@pugetsoundfolkharpsociety. org  for ad submission guidelines.

(Sellers Beware! You may be contacted by scammers... unfortunately, this happens with almost any expensive item advertised on-line. These scams have become more sophisticated, and some sound authentic (at first).  Be suspicious of  anything involving a "shipper" or "agent", pressuring you to quickly accept a money order or cashier's check, or asking you to return "change" from a large overpayment. The money order or check turns out to be bogus, and you lose the "change" and perhaps your harp as well! It is best to simply ignore queries from buyers with such a story.

Megan Juras (Dutton MT) is seeking a used pedal harp. She is interested in a Venus Classic (roses) Concert Grand or a Lyon and Healy 85 petite (not made in China) or an L&H Chicago 40.

In other words, it doesn't need to be fancy-dancy for a symphony, but might need to appear at luncheons/ high tea/church functions/occasional weddings/hospice/accompany music students, etc. I could even take on a harp in need of minor repair if the price were right."
