location-based applications, e-commerce, social commerceTaskRabbit, the peer-to-peer marketplace for services, has acquired One Jackson, on online marketplace for non-corporate children’s clothing.

One Jackson has been shut down.

“The One Jackson team brings with it invaluable experience building a marketplace and a community that connects people across shared interests,” TaskRabbit said in a blog post announcing the acquisition.

AnneĀ Raimondi, One Jackson’s co-founder and CEO, will assume the role of chief revenue officer. Raimondi has served as the VP of Marketing at SurveyMonkey and Insider Pages with product experience at big names including eBay, Blue Nile and Zazzle.

Yee Lee, the other co-founder and CTO of One Jackson, will serve as TaskRabbit’s VP of engineering. Yee has worked at Google, Katango, Skype, and PayPal.

TaskRabbit site traffic was down in October 2012 relative to October 2011, according to Complete analytics. Because the service connects those willing to pay for services with those willing to provide them, it needs a large user base to succeed.
