our local antique shops and artist type shops art gallerys working artists did a web site together, promoting each others business, http://thingstodowestmi.com/Things_to_do_west_mi.php as well as have done a map/ guide to the local shops (tri-fold and colored) if each of us had tried to do this, it is costly, but with a group do we break the cost up by 10 that is how many is in the group, we also have done the local chamber of commerace business expo show as a group,

we meet once a month in a differnet shop each time so we can keep up with what is new and different with each shop so we can send the customers to the shop that might be able to supply that magic widget that the customer is looking for .
