Ben Pieratt, Zach Klein, and Eric Jacobsen
Re-launched last year (following a 2009 beta project), Svpply is a social shopping site where users can curate wish lists, follow one another, and become online tastemakers. Aside from the slightly annoying "v" in the name, there's a lot to love about this site. Based out of Somerville, Massachusetts, Svpply is the brainchild of designer/developers Ben Pieratt (of The Egotist Network), Eric Jacobsen (of Fwis LLC), and Zach Klein (of Vimeo.com).
I tested the waters today, creating an account and sifting through products added by users around the world. The sign-up process is simple and intuitive, and it's a pleasure to stumble through user pages, looking for like-minded shoppers and discovering new stores along the way.
In addition to home goods, Svpply's main categories are apparel, accessories, shoes, tech, and media. You can search products by price and gender (a helpful feature for clothes hounds).
Compared to other social shopping sites like Polyvore and Boutiques.com, Svpply seems to skew towards an edgier, more modern aesthetic.
