Cyberoptix and other Detroit small businesses bring their wares to Mackinac for 'Building Bridges to Small Business' June 1, 2015 01:20

When many Mackinac Policy Conference attendees arrived at the island's ferry dock this week they were greeted by "pinup girls." That sounds scandalous, but it was really an eye-catching attempt by a handful of Detroit small businesses.

They've banded together to create a popup market on Mackinac Island. Their goal is to shed some light on the importance of Michigan small businesses like theirs.

Cyberoptix, Sweet Potato Sensations, Rebel Nell, and The Peacock Room will each peddle their wares later today on the island.
