I hate it when I’m flipping through a magazine or browsing the web and I come across a fabulous dress or amazing pair of shoes that I just HAVE TO HAVE RIGHT NOW, but I can’t find any information about the brand or where I can get them. The obsessive-compulsive shopper in me can get a little out of control trying to find them, by searching Google or browsing every online store I can think of.
Apparently I’m not the only one who gets frustrated when this kind of thing happens, which is why I was excited when I found out about an awesome little website called The Hunt, and others are likely to love it just as much as I do.
The Hunt is built on the old-fashioned philosophy that “two heads [in this case, a few thousand heads] are better than one” by using the website’s community to help you find down the clothing and accessories on your wish list that you can’t locate.
Here’s how it works: upload a picture of what it is you’re looking for, and be sure to include whether you want the exact item (and price is no object) or just a similar option at a cheaper price (you can also ask for help on how to style a particular item).
Then, the hunt is on! Now, all that’s left for you to do is just sit and wait for others in the community to respond. With their help, you’ll be able to track down that cute bikini in time to order it for Spring Break!
Of course, the only way that a community can thrive is for everyone to pitch in, so make sure you do your part to help other hunters on the site!
