to the shoppersmap San Gabriel Valley blog homepage. This space is the place
where the shops located in the San Gabriel Valley that are part of the shoppersmap
network have the opportunity to showcase their business.
Our goal is to provide a community forum in which our stores and the
people who love to shop in them can get together and share common
interests. Store owners are encouraged to discuss, display and share
their items, ideas and expertise and make that information available
(via RSS) to the entire blogoshpere.
As the era of "geospatial" tourism begins, we at shoppersmap are
pioneering the notion of aggregating the interests of the small
business community focused on antiques, vintage, retro and thrift
inventory. Unlike "high end" sites like Firstdibs or impersonal
mediums like eBay, we are all about the survival and flourishing of our
community small businesses in our industry. Unlike City Search or
Yelp, we aren't inclusive of every business in every town-we are
focused community by community on our narrow niche and are confident we
will be an effective filter in bringing together the interests of
owners and shoppers alike.
So let's "open the conversation" among the locals, folks anywhere on
the planet with similar passions and lovers of the new era of
interactive map mashups! All comments and suggestions welcome!
