Scoutmob's Shoppe is a curated marketplace for independent and inspired goods. We feature authentic products from microretailers across the country in categories such as home decor, art, jewelry and gifts. Our platform is a discovery shopping experience that takes advantage of hard-to-find collections, a focus on the makers behind the products and the resurgence of authenticity in today's society. Consumers want someone to cut through the clutter and surface up the best products in this growing and popular vertical. And the market's big... the handmade market is $30B, gifts and home decor are $65B and jewelry is $63B.
We launched the Shoppe product line 16 months ago with a significant head start of 2 million organic email sign-ups from our legacy local mobile business. This is a big advantage as there isn't a current leader at curating and creating demand in the independent and authentic goods market and user acquisition is the lifeblood of early ecommerce companies.
