Product-collecting platform Svpply had a lot fans. The company has been near and dear to us because Ben Pieratt started it, who also co-created The Egotist Network. Svpply was purchased by ebay in 2012, which it turns out just wanted to milk some of the ideas inside the site for its own feeds and collections. Yesterday, ebay announced it will be shutting down Svpply on August 31.
With that announcement, Ben and his partner Fictive Kin took their case to Kickstarter to resurrect Svpply as Very Goods — a site very similar in form and function that will allow previous users to import their Svpply history to have a rich database off the bat. Should they reach their fundraising goal of $50k to build the new site, the only way to become a member of the new offering is to have supported the campaign or to be invited by someone who did.
If you want to get in on it, here's the spot.
