Singapore Startup relaunches & looks at Western Markets
Singaporean startup The Bazaar have just relaunched its online creative marketplace, with over 200,000 creative items and over 8,400 stores on site, shipping to over 226 countries around the globe.
The Bazaar was launched by the team behind creativity and innovation news and editorial site DesignTAXI, that was named by Forbes Magazine as one of the “The Top Five Sites for Keeping Up With Creativity and Design” and featured in TIME Magazine as one of “The 140 Best Twitter Feeds of 2012”.
The Bazaar hosts a plethora of items ranging from fine art reprints of classic Leonardo da Vinci, Vincent van Gogh and William Blake, to pop culture inspired pieces from CollegeHumor and limited- edition cameras from Lomography.
The Bazaar is the first marketplace to host cult online entertainment site CollegeHumor’s shopfront, and is the first website to stock limited-edition Lomography products outside the official Lomography site.
