The Fancy.com has come a long way since its beginnings as an invite-only photo blog. It’s now a Pinterest-like shopping platform that’s raising round after round and converting an impressive amount of sales.
And the site doesn’t just appeal to the everyday user: According to Fancy, plenty of the tech sector’s big names are fancying plenty of items site-wise. High-brow clientele including Jack Dorsey, Mark Zuckerberg, and Daniel Ek are patrons of Fancy, in fact. Curious what they’ve been browsing and buying? Here’s a look.
