FleaPop: Home Décor E-Marketplace
New online marketplace, FleaPop is a platform for boutique owners and the general public to list and sell home décor items. Similar to Etsy, since launching in beta just two months ago, The California based business has amassed more than 150 online shops and logged more than 100,000 item views.
Though open to independent retailers, FleaPop is aimed at all décor lovers – users simply log in through facebook and membership is free, although a small percentage is charged when items are sold. FleaPop’s website managers do monitor submissions and push favoured items to the top of the website’s scrolling feed.
In addition to making unique, locally made items accessible online to rookie decorators to seasoned pros, FleaPop can bring independent and amateur retailers more business through web exposure, echoing the premise of ecommerce sites like Boutiika, a fashion and lifestyle site that allows customers to browse local boutiques in a central online location.
