Last week, Snapette and The Bloggers’ Collective got together at Flying A, a SoHo boutique that carries a mix of contemporary and carefully curated vintage pieces. The decor inside is very cool and it’s definitely a shop I’ll visit again.
Snapette is an app that uses crowdsourced photos to provide a hyperlocal shopping experience to its users.
I snapped this clutch at Flying A with the app, and with Location Services turned on, I can see photos of products from other users at stores near my location. Pretty cool concept– something you’re looking for might be right across the street!
As someone who has a life goal of being an angel investor, I loved hearing about how Snapette was funded. Maybe one day I’ll be able to back a startup… sometime… in the distant future.
You can see me on the Snapette blog in photos from the event, but of course I took a few of my own.
Blogger friendship (blogship?) rings purchased from Flying A.

Yes thanks for coming and trying out Snapette! And cool you want to be an angel investor eventually :)
Michael Kacanich says
It was so nice to meet you and everyone! Come back soon :)
Kristin & Megan says
Love the friendship rings! Too fun!
Haha, I look so sheepish in that picture above! As always, great job covering the event. Seriously, when do you take these pictures? I hardly ever see you doing so until I see all the great shots on your blog!
Alex Elizabeth says
Apparently I’m just a super photo creeper… but you know I like unposed shots, sometimes people freeze when you point the camera at them!
Ha, that would be me! I can be so stiff sometimes- must work on that!
That app sounds really cool, but probably only somewhere like NYC where there would be enough people using it. If I were to try in my town, I’m pretty sure I’d be the only one.
Alex Elizabeth says
Oh no, I didn’t think about that. Though maybe you might be surprised, and there are some fashionistas running around town that you didn’t know about.
