A Note from Betsy Winslow Trimber:


After seven years faced with meager purchasing options, my frustration fueled my desire to rescue parents, teachers and flutists like me! I decided to create a new outlet for the trial and sale of flutes. In 2011, I opened The Flutist’s Faire, a store front location providing the latest products and access to professional musicians. I made the decision to start this business after struggling to acquire a step-up and then a custom flute for my daughter.

Here were our only choices:

  • • Buy a flute on eBay
  • • Travel over 250 miles to the nearest flute specialist
  • • Pay for expensive shipping and trials
  • • Wait for the Mid-Atlantic Flute Fair
  • • Visit the local music store where there was no professional flutist on staff to guide our decision.


We tried all of the above, and we yearned for a better option; an option with an emphasis on customer service! So, guided by my less than desirable experiences as a consumer, I serve my clients by answering questions directly, listening to complaints gracefully, addressing issues empathetically and finding solutions that are mutually satisfying to all parties.
