Tube Dude has moved from St. Armand’s Circle to historic property, which was built in 1929 in downtown Sarasota at 1818 Main Street. You can’t miss the Bright Yellow building, and window full of smiles.
The creator of Tube Dude, Scott Gerber, was a yacht builder in Sarasota, Florida. In 2010 when the recession consumed the yachting industry Scott was forced to close his company. This was the worst day of his life. He had to let go of 40 employees who had faithfully worked beside him for more than 15 years. Scott realized he needed something to pull himself out of this dark place. That he needed to offset this horrible feeling and create some happiness.
Tube Dude is a staple in the Sarasota Community and is making Sarasota smile since 2010. Scott’s plans for new location: “There’s going to be a Tube Dude bedroom, Tube Dude living room and Tube Dude office, the kids are going to go crazy over this.”
Tube Dude has a wide variety to choose from: From Mailboxes to Dudes at Home, Dudes at Work, Sports Dudes, Gardening Dudes, Smaller Dudes, Dogs, Cats, Birds, Fish, Other Animals, Mini Dudes, Just Smiles, Furniture, Others Dudes and Dudes Stuff.
“Wow! Tube Dude just installed our beautiful mailbox. It looks great. Scott Gerber was easy to work with and enthusiastically made all the design changes we requested. He certainly put a smile on our faces. Thank you Scott.
P.S. Support the arts in Sarasota.” – Cynthia Luckoski
“We love our dudette…she’s waving as the boats coast by and we usually dress her up on the 4th of July.. We have her hooked up to a water pump (my husband the master plumber) and it looks like she’s pumping the water as it flows back into the lake!!” – Denise Ruby Reuven
“We just ordered two Tube-Dude cats for our home and the process couldn’t have been easier or more pleasant! Great guy, great service, fun gallery! Thanks so much! – Lisa Roberts
Tube Dude – Keep Smiling!
