Although we're huge Pinterest junkies over here at Refinery29 (um, click here and here and here for proof), we do have one complaint with the S.F.-based site: We want to buy so many of the things we see, only to find ourselves searching in vain for that elusive click-to-purchase button. But, that's where new site Keep.com, which launches tomorrow, comes in.
Founded by About.com's Scott Kumit in New York, Keep includes a community of real-people "shopkeepers" (pinners-slash-merchants, if you will) who create personally curated digital marketplaces with awesome items that you can buy on the spot. For example, our page might include a cute polka-dot sweater from J.Crew, some arrow-embellished salad servers from The Curiosity Shoppe for Target collection, and our must-have Can't Afford A Birkin tote from German label Souve. Whatever our heart desires, as long as folks can "keep" the item if they want it, rather than just be inspired by it and re-pin.
The newbie site is already a hit with Etsy sellers and all you need to try it out is to sign up and get that Keep It button installed on your toolbar. Trust us, we've done it, and we think we've found our new obsession.
