Hi,

I do Grand Rapids, Muskegon & Holland. I have only been shopping for a few weeks. I have learned an awful lot from Volition, Thank You all! I have been pretty busy shopping and have a full schedule for May. But now I am feeling guilty that maybe I have been taking jobs that other shoppers used to get. I am just doing this for fun & don't want to step on anyone's toes that depends on the income. Are there already plenty of shoppers in this area or am I needed to shop?

MaryLeu,
Everybody's welcomed, but don't take any of mine, just kidding.
You'll find you settle into your usuals and try some different shop as companies present them.
I certainly hope you wouldn't back off trying this because anyone is worried about competition.

Another competitor - and you were nice to her Penny - What's up with that???

Just kidding, Penny is awesome! There are a lot of shoppers in Grand Rapids but everyone has their favorites. Good luck to you Mary Leu!

Everyone's got their favs and hates. Me, I won't do apartment shops. Other shops, I'm not old enough yet. I've seen a lot of shops where you have to be atleast 26!

We're all friendly in West Michigan. We started this huge trend last summer with the networking threads! It's a shame we haven't had another get together since September (Or was it October?)

<waving to MaryLeu> I live near GR but when I shop, I spend most of my time in Muskegon. I think you'll find plenty of work your way! Don't worry about taking anyone's shops. If this happens, I'll just send Guido your way and that will be that! <hehehehe>

Actually we are a friendly bunch and thankful to have some help. Maybe we'll meet at the next Michigan get together.

Hey guys? When IS the next get together?? I have been working on my Skittle spitting skills!

LOL I totally forgot about the skittle spit!! Rumor has it a couple shoppers from out west is going to be in Kalamazoo in June. Anyone care to get together in June in the Kalamazoo area? We can invite our neighbors to the south of us in Indiana, since Kzoo is only a hour away! (Just as far as Grand Rapids!) I know of atleast three shoppers on this forum that live in Kalamazoo, so you three better plan on coming too!

I think they said they were going to be in Kalamazoon on the 21st. From that point, they are going to Ohio of all places (No offense to Ohio readers but LOL Ohio?!)

Attention Michigan shoppers (and anyone else interested in coming!)

Coming soon:
Christmas in August! Once again we are going to have our annual get together in August, with a Christmas theme! More details to come. I need to know who would be interested in coming, what would be good place to do it at, and what dates work!

The earlier in August the better for me....
How about a central location? I'd like to see central & SE shoppers too!

Would anyone be interested in doing a weekend camping thing (christmas theme of course..we'll make all the other campers think we're nuts)? I'm thinking Lansing is a good central spot for everyone.

I am not too campy, but I would show up anywhere for the day....some camps you have to pay to enter even if you're not camping so if we take that into consideration I would go along with anything!

Ok no camping (I just happen to like camping lol ;).

Lansing seems to be a central location for Michigan. Is this acceptable?

Unless there's a shopper willing to host it, will have to either find a public park, or rent a small banquet room at a motel (I'm thinking one at Days Inn off of exit 100 I believe). Need more interest expressed in coming before I will go that far, though. Two ppl isn't enough ;)
