Maybe you need some hints? I see a few business owners from Main Street! And one woman pictured is probably pretty busy this month with the school year starting soon...

Many look familiar...but the 3 of 10 (5.) is George from George's Tailoring and 6 of 10 (4.) is the woman from the school uniform store on N. Main St. Also 4 of 10 (2.) works at one of the diners on Main St.-not sure which one. Michelle very clever not giving too much background away.

#8...Monique...owner of Hair We Are on front street......Love the ladies at Hair We Are!
Carrie Porder August 13, 2011 at 03:56 AM
#4 of 10...just not sure of which diner
Michelle Higgins August 13, 2011 at 01:39 PM
Carrie, you already identified #4 as Theresa Fanning owner of Brooks Uniforms on Main Street and you also correctly identified #5 as George Blacksmith, owner of George's Tailoring on Park Avenue. Tammy you are correct, your wonderful Father, Rene Belanger # 3, owns Flea Market Square on Main Street and TatEmpress, you are also correct, # 8 is Monique Ladry, owner of Hair We Are on Front Street. Great job to these three ladies, does anyone know the rest of our private business owners ?

Michelle, I meant #2 works in a diner...I was confused with the numbering...the ones on the photo next to your name are different from the actual order they are listed in.
Michelle Higgins August 13, 2011 at 07:12 PM
Carrie, #2 does not work in a diner on Main Street but you're warm !
Carrie Porder August 13, 2011 at 07:15 PM

Michelle Higgins August 13, 2011 at 07:18 PM
No CarrIe, she does not work at the Cakery.... But you're getting warmer.

St Charles, second my business neighbor Rene from Main St, The second is Georges Tailoring whom I use,myself if you can guess where There will be a free gift offered (from my store),The 5th & 6th are very familiar, Then the last one I know is MO-niqe where I get my hair done. Great game Michelle keep up the good work. I love Patch
Carrie Porder August 14, 2011 at 08:28 PM
George's Tailoring is on the corner of Transit St and Park Ave.
Carrie Porder August 14, 2011 at 08:30 PM
Do you consider the Weiner place a diner...if not I guess at maybe the Call!
Michelle Higgins August 14, 2011 at 10:15 PM
The Woman in question (#2) does not work at a weiner place nor does she work at the Call.
