We recently decided to try something new. We created fifteen Art Pack that each contained an Original art print by a local artist and coupons to local businesses. A few businesses even gave us limited numbers of special rewards such as Elgin Public House gift certificates and Side Street Stdio Arts Small Wonders scholarships.
It was a fun day hiding them over the city and placing hints about their locations on Facebook during Small Business Saturday. We were even lucky enough to be there when a few people found their packs. We were even written up in the Chicago Tribune’s Elgin Courier News.
We may need to do this again.
