LuxeYard: New Sample Sale Site

LuxeYard is the latest sample sale site to open shop. The flash sale space is already getting crowded, but LuxeYard is poised to become one of the heavy hitters, as they just landed $3.5 million in funding.

How is LuxeYard different? LuxeYard is trying quite a few things differently than most flash sale sites. First, the more people who want to buy something, the cheaper it is. LuxeYard plans to use the power of social shopping (similar to Fab’s recent social shopping features). Customers can also post photos of items they want to purchase. LuxeYard also plans to do pop-up shops for local stores. And finally, they’re using ‘trendsetters’, like Nicky Hilton, to introduce their personal picks in a feature called Luxe Life. This aspect is very Fab.com.
