Craigslist.

Ask Blanks! is self-funded and has received capital from private investors, such as friends, family and associates.

What are some of the advantages to doing business here?
Detroit may have a tough exterior, but we have a warm interior. I say that so I can say, customer loyalty. Once you've earned a Detroiter's loyalty you may have a customer for life.
