I had not heard of it before. I don't see anything for vintage, though.
I haven't explored it too much, yet.
I have heard of it in some parallel universe! I did manage to find some vintage: http://pinterest.com/chris_stephens/vintage/
Will have to check this site out further!! Thanks for the link:)
I've used it but I have not set up an account specifically for my vintage business world. Here's my Pinterest boards from the other part of my brain... http://pinterest.com/evidentress
Funny this should have been mentioned here, because it was also mentioned on the Nate Berkus show this afternoon. I love new gadgets and gizmos and toys, so I snuck over and checked it out. It looks like a great way to organize your favorite links with pretty pictures attached. Great for planning or gathering ideas in one easy spot.
I made 2 "boards" in the matter of minutes.
This one is for our Dream Log Home we're building for retirement.
This one is for Vintage Costume Jewelry links that I use frequently and love.
Their info says not to have too many links from the same website ... so promoting your very own store might not be a great idea ... but it might be a great way to promote a group of like-minded sellers, or complimentary sellers.
Build a small consortium of sellers interested in the same type of items (like me with costume jewelry and ephemera) ... and link to each other's items on a page. It would require housekeeping as those items sell, though.
Just another "spread the love", "share the knowledge" kind of internet marketing tool.
Here is my Pinterest account
hmmm. I just went to Ruby Lane and pinned an item from your shop to my Pinterest page.

If you will private message me your email address, I will send you an invitation to Pinterest and we can see if that works. I've been using it quite a while, and have been able to successfully invite friends.
I sent my email to Pinterest and they just emailed me that I'm on the waiting list and will be on board soon. We'll see! Curious about using it!
