The Bowerbird is a Proud Supporter of
the 3/50 Project


About The 3/50 Project:
Created to build loyalty and increased revenue for independent, locally owned businesses, the 3/50 project relies on a simple message: ”Pick 3. Spend 50. Save your local economy.”
  • Pick three locally owned businesses you’d hate to see disappear, and then return to them.

  • Spend $50 per month in locally owned businesses. If half the employed U.S. population did so, it would generate more than $42.6 billion in revenue.

  • For every $100 spent in locally owned businesses, $68 returns to the local community. When spent in a big box, chain, or franchise, $43 remains. Purchases made online return nothing.
Please stop by The Bowerbird, located in the Old Lyme Marketplace to receive more information about the 3/50 Project. You may also wish to contact the founder of the 3/50 Project, Cinda Baxter.

Meet our new part-time office dog, Mingus.

When he is not napping, he runs a very tight ship. His chief duties are shredding paper and greeting customers and sales representatives. Eventually, we hope he will be able to deliver messages to the sales floor.
