New York-based The Fancy, a luxury online pinboard, may only have 250,000 users to Pinterest's 10 million, but that hasn't stopped them yet. With backers such as Jack Dorsey of Square & Twitter, endorsements from the likes of Kanye West, and a new e-commerce plugin that allows users to book hotels or purchase items they "fancy" directly from the site, the company is gaining traction.
