Did you know that Blu Dot built its business on bartering? Way back when, its logo was designed in exchange for a custom tree house. Yup, a custom tree house.
Inspired by this tale of their longtime client, the folks at Minneapolis-based mono created The Blu Dot Swap Meet, an online community auction where creatives who love modern design but are unable to afford modern furniture can bid on any item from the site in exchange for their own works of art, Whether it’s a creation, talent, collection, taxidermy or a popsicle stick fort, if Blu Dot likes, the furniture is yours.
In the piece above, Ron Jeremy doppelganger/indie dance-rock artist Har Mar Superstar will hopefully give you a better understanding of how the whole barter system works. Happy Bidding.
