Blu Dot + Blue Roof Designs = new table?

Today I read the article Fancy Furniture Seeks Talented Oddball Owners on Etsy – it details the modern furniture company Blu Dot and their call for proposals wherein one can exchange [insert stuff here] for one of their pieces.

If it sounds like I’m being vague, I am. Basically you can pitch any kind of trade you wish. Have a stash of U.S. thimbles in your basement? Go for it. Perhaps your handmade potholder collection has lost its luster…pitch it. Your trash could be their treasure and subsequently, your new sofa.

Check out the bids – some of them are priceless!

Note: I’m talking to you moldy growth (art) and Random Acts of Worm-ness.

So I decided to throw my hat in the ring with an offer of six handmade journals – here’s a screenshot of the bid:

I’m crossing my fingers (and toes) that they’ll accept my offer and I’ll get me a lovely Minimalista Console Table.

In the meantime, it would be awesome if you’d make me look good and click on that there Swap-worthy? button. I’m not entirely sure what effect it will have on my chances, but you can never have too many thumbs.

I voted for you – it was not so easy to find, quite far below already. Your journals look wonderful, and I suppose six are at least of equal value as the table. Have you had a look at the accepted swaps? Makes we wonder whether quality and worth really got anything to do with it 🙂

What a fun project. I am keeping my fingers crossed for you!

Hilke –

Thanks for the vote!

Since I submitted my entry, I’ve realized that my bid isn’t hip enough. In fact, I’m pretty sure that I’m not hip enough.

I’m debating adding additional text to jazz it up a bit.

So what do you think? I'd love to know!
