10.  A Golden Gift Opportunity:  24K Altus Handmade Flute.  As price of gold continues to rise, investing in a golden flute would seem to be a wonderful investment.  The 24K Altus Flute is a gem with soaring sounds from the warm high register and lush low register.  A golden opportunity indeed!  Visit  AltusFlutes.com
