a kooky way to display one's used wares in kook-town...
Due to the locale, I'd assume ivy, and not kudzu.

The rare and beautiful Venus Fly Tuba... Please don't kill it!

And a young one too. The fact they are unbranded implies this is its first season large enough to bear tubas.
Thanks for playing!

Maybe some occult ritual, or effigy to keep other tubas away.

I'm supporting one of those two dozen folks.
I believe they've all spoken out against tuba lynching.

Someone's introducing a new line of tubas. Or, a line of old tubas.

More likely: someone bought a bunch of old horns, then hung them on a clothesline to wash then hose them off. Not a bad solution.

Or both. Indeed they look like India. I picture some enthusiast picking up a demo set, thinking he had a gold mine of cheap horns he could sell to the masses at a modest markup. The ivy infestation goes with the theme - he'd have hired someone to keep that stuff at bay, back in India.

Yeah, when I saw those pics I was thinking; Seattle + a bunch of helicons = must be Donn's place. j/k :lol: :P At least those helicons have thick (or should I say thicc?) bracing :)
