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!
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.
