Hoff the Harmonica Case Man

by dbell58

The Worlds First Shaker Box Necklace

It was near the end of the craft show. Working his way around the room was a

guy who appeared to me to be selling something. He was stopping by some of

the craft booths and was showing them items from the large hand bag he

carried. I was certainly curious and when he finally got to me he began to

show me various carrying cases, for harmonicas of all things.

His name is Bob Hoffman, aka Hoff the Harmonica Man. He asked me if I could

modify some of my small Shaker Boxes to snugly hold a small bluesband

harmonica. Sure I said. Why not. Hoff then handed me a page of guidelines and

instructions for the case. I was amused at first, then I felt honored to

have been selected to add to Hoff’s huge and growing harmonica case

collection. You see Hoff  goes around to various craft shows and commissions

artists and craftspeople to design necklaces that he can wear to hold his

beloved harmonicas.

An American original idea, and person!

Shaker Box Harmonica Holder and Necklace

Hoff has a collection of hundreds of these cases. Each is a unique creation from

a different artist or craftsman. As far as I know, these may be the only Shaker

Box Harmonica Necklaces in the world! You can view a great interview with

Hoff on Vermont television here:

Shaker boxes can be used to hold any thing you can think of. They make
unique gifts that will become “instant” heirlooms. So, think outside the box!
