Don't you really want to love eBay? And remember when Craigslist was all you needed to start and end all projects? And then you grew up. Had kids. Lost all free time. And acquired mountains more stuff. eBay is now only for serious sellers. Craigslist is only for the seriously insane. Enter SwopBoard, the brainchild of Natalie Angelillo.
Natalie is a serial entrepreneur who creates businesses she needs. (She launched Swink when she wanted a weekly blowout!) Done with a packed garage and just giving away really good loot, she dreamt up a marketplace that allows buyers and sellers to make a deal. And give 10%+ to their kids' school. SOLD!
In addition to parents meeting to SWOP goods, we can all shop in sponsored SwopBoard boutiques and 10% of our purchase is donated to a school of our choice.
The ladies of Seattle Design Foundation included some of my favorite Seattle designers in their SwopBoard boutique. Faris, Ladies & Gentleman Studio, Jen Ament Art, Akiko's Pottery and Rachel Ravitch made the list!
The rest of the story is: Erin is a fan of Dress No. 1. Like Natalie. She and Amber just make shit happen. Like Natalie. They support Seattle creatives. Like Natalie.
DO THE SWOP. Like Natalie.
