Do what the locals do, buy what the locals buy – that’s my motto whenever I travel. I have nothing against doing touristy things, but when I think back to all my travels, the memories that stand out the most are the moments that I found myself having tea in a remote Bedouin camp in the desert of Jordan or having a family-style dinner with strangers in Amsterdam.
The same goes for shopping. My job often takes me away from home and I love bringing back a little something for my wife and daughter. Of course I want to buy something local… and what’s more local than someone’s living room?
When I travel, I fire up the Krrb iPhone app and see what the locals are selling. This often takes me on a journey around town that is full of surprises and local discovery.
For us at Krrb, “local” is not solely about proximity, but a way of life that celebrates geography. Though our mission is to enable better local and in-person transactions, our ambition is to highlight local favor all over the world.
Today we’re introducing a new feature on Krrb that’ll enable you to shop local elsewhere. A simple filter that will show you what listings on Krrb can be shipped to you. With listings in 2176 cities and 94 countries, there’s plenty of local flavor to discover.
So go ahead, expand your radius on Krrb to “planet earth” or dip into your favorite city and see all they have to offer. Whenever you buy local anywhere, you support local economies everywhere – whether it be in your neighborhood or someone else’s.
