About Us

The Flute Market is a reputable internet-based business that caters to the needs of student and professional flutists alike. We buy, sell, and consign all levels of flutes, piccolos, headjoints, and occassionally other music-related items such as cases, sheet music, and accessories. The shop is based in Central Pennsylvania, but readily serves the continental United States. Shipping arrangements to trial instruments and headjoints can also be made to Alaska, Hawaii, Canada, and Europe.

We understand the needs of flutists, no matter what level of playing. We offer personalized, prompt advice pertinent to your unique situation, whether you are a parent who needs to buy a flute for your child, a professional looking for a performance-worthy upgrade, a flutist who isn't sure which brand is suitable to reach the next level, and everything in between.

The Flute Market was founded after the owner, Ann (Hughes) Running, noticed a huge demand that flutists of all levels, not just professionals, had in needing a legitimate and trustworthy place to buy, sell, and consign flutes and headjoints in performance-ready condition. She also saw that beginning and novice flutists did not have a convenient place to find good, sound information and advice regarding buying, selling, or consigning flutes and flute-related items. To accomplish these two goals, Ann created The Flute Market. Ann began selling flutes in 2005, but she did not decide to convert her talents into a full-fledged business until 2008. Ann holds a Bachelor of Arts degree in music (flute performance) and oversees all aspects of the flute consignment process at The Flute Market.
