.:Feature - Whoopdwhoop:.


Have you heard of Whoopdwhoop yet?

It's a new website that helps sellers buy and sell their items without using any money!

Here is Mckay to tell you a bit more about this new site:

I am so excited to tell you about a new website that my husband and I have created. Our vision was to create a community where artisans (that's you!) could share their talents, creativity and creations with others not through money, but through swapping. We wanted a place where people could list their handiwork (photography, paper crafts, jewelry, art, sewn items, basically anything that they have handmade) and then swap them for others' handmade items - completely eliminating the need for money.

It was this idea that sparked the life of whoopdwhoop.com. Whoopdwhoop is a unique, currency - free marketplace where individuals can both list their creative endeavors and 'shop' for others' creative endeavors -- all without the use of money. Points (whoops) are earned by both listing and swapping your handiwork. You can then take the whoops that you have earned and 'shop' within the whoopdwhoop community. It's the perfect way to partake in some retail therapy and not feel guilty! It's free, it's easy, and it's fun.

Our hope is that in this economy where things can be tough, whoopdwhoop will allow people to share their talents, creativity, and creations with others -- all by simply swapping.

Thanks for having me, I hope to see you whoopin' it up over at whoopdwhoop. Happy swapping.

Doesn't this sound like a fabulous idea? I already do this on a personal level - I'm always trading my friend products for her to cut my hair and wax my 'stache, and I've also done a couple of trades on etsy as well, so this speaks to me!
