Get On The Hunt to Shop For Mystery Items in Photos

By  January 22, 2013

Ever stumbled upon an amazing piece of jewelry on a random Tumblr, found a must have dress on Pinterest, or seen someone lurking in the back of a photo on your newsfeed rocking the cutest shoes ever, only to realize you have no way of tracking the item down for purchase? We can’t be the only ones who have felt the disappointment of an unlinked image, and as of today, we won’t be the only ones no longer bummed out either. The Hunt has arrived to solve shoppers’ number one pain point: where to actually purchase items seen on photo-sharing websites such as Pinterest, Instagram and Tumblr. Catering to the emerging ”eCommerce-ization of images” trend occurring in the shopping experience, The Hunt allows users to post a photo of their sought after item while others help them find it or similar products online. In the last 6 months, members have found for each other 115,000 products from over 10,000 unique stores! This is quite the coming together of beauty junkies and style supporters, and we’re loving the commradery. Plus, we love a good fashion oriented chase. Will you be using The Hunt for shopping purposes?
