SANTA MONICA, CA – HipSwap announces the launch of HipSwap.com – a mobile and web marketplace that offers delivery service locally. HipSwap features the curated collections of celebrities, style influencers, tastemakers and neighborhoods. The new website and mobile app (iPhone / Android) are a beautifully curated way to shop locally and sell items in three easy steps. And HipSwap enables people to discover what’s inside the most fabulous closets, homes, and shops in neighborhoods and cities across America.
HipSwap has already accumulated thousands of users and thousands of curated items in its inventory since releasing in Beta in November 2011 in Los Angeles. Starting today, HipSwap connects buyers and sellers locally by publicly launching in seven (7) cities: Los Angeles, New York, Chicago, San Francisco, Austin, Washington D.C., and Atlanta.
Frustrated with how difficult and expensive it is to sell on Craigslist and eBay, co-founders Rob Kramer and Andrew Skinner decided to create a photo and video driven marketplace that connects buyers and sellers locally. “HipSwap combines the power of local commerce, with the shopping experience of Zappos and the beauty of Pinterest,” says Kramer. “And HipSwap enables any person, merchant, stylist, artist, celebrity or designer to quickly and beautifully showcase their products and shop the closets, homes and stores in neighborhoods across America.”
Posting items on HipSwap is easy. Users take a photo using the HipSwap iPhone or Android app or upload a photo using the HipSwap web app. They price the item, title it, and post it into the marketplace. Within seconds people are selling to each other in neighborhoods and cities across America.
And starting today, HipSwap is launching its celebrity Shop My Closet? marketplace and video series. The series enables anyone to shop the closets of celebrities, designers and influencers. The premiere installment of the Shop My Closet? series features fashion maven and Good Day L.A. host Jillian Barberie Reynolds. Keep a close eye on HipSwap.com as the company releases new curated video collections from celebrities and tastemakers in the upcoming weeks.
