The GSFABA Placemap continues to be one of the most successful advertising tools for the Shelburne Falls region. Approximately 30,000 copies are printed and distributed each year. The maps are distributed all over the region and at The Big E. The ads are $250 each and are sold on a first-come, first paid basis.
The map is printed in full color and the color placement in each ad is chosen by the map designer, with the effectiveness of each ad in mind.
Designing the ad is included in the purchase of placemap advertising. However, advertisers are welcome to submit their own camera-ready art to size (using the dimensions given above for a horizontal ad), as a black and white pdf (including halftones if desired), with the opportunity to determine the placement of color within their ad.
Long-time favorite, Susan Wyant, has retired and this year’s Placemap will have a new look with new designers, Jane Beatrice Wegscheider and Phyllis Labanowski. Jane and Phyllis are hard at work to create a new, spectacular map that will grab attention and draw customers to advertising businesses.

Residents of Shelburne & Buckland: You are needed to help create a parking lot with vision in Buckland!
The Shelburne Falls Area Partnership, a collaboration between the towns of Buckland and Shelburne and the Greater Shelburne Falls Area Business Association, invite the community – particularly artists and residents from the Village of Shelburne Falls – to attend our upcoming Placemaking workshops that will focus on creatively imagining a spectacular, new place in the parking lot in front of Salmon Falls Gallery. Since the town’s recent acquisition of new property, the property is now available for development; the community is invited to participate in the process of its design.
Placemaking is a people-centered approach to the planning, design and management of public spaces. It involves looking at, listening to, and asking questions of the people who live, work, and play in a particular space, to discover needs and aspirations. This information is then used to create a common vision for that place. The vision can evolve quickly into an implementation strategy, beginning with small-scale, do-able improvements that can immediately bring benefits to public spaces and the people who use them.
Workshops will be held on two Saturdays - January 28 and February 4 – from 1-4pm weather – permitting (snow/freeze days- same time on the following Sunday). The first workshop will begin at Ann Brauer’s Quilt Studio, 2 Canal Street; the second at McCusker’s Market Community Room on State Street. Workshops will be interactive, participatory, and will include spending time outside at the parking lot – so dress warmly.
