Using empty shops

Many towns and cities suffer from increasing numbers of empty shops and rather than just leave them unused councils are looking for ways to use them (rather than just disguising them with picture).
In tourist towns such as Moissac shops have been transformed into art galleries or artisan studios.
In and around the beautiful abbey such "ephemeral" galleries are marked with a large question mark sign - perhaps to say "why not your business here".

Locally several unused buildings in Laguepie have been opened as "boutiques ephemeres" and are an interesting addition to the usual commerces.
