Minneapolis-based furniture company Blu Dot is known for creating some out-of-the-ordinary promotions, including the very cool incident two years ago when they dropped 25 Real Good chairs around New York City. This time, the company is encouraging fans to swap a talent or collection for a piece of furniture. Confused? Check out this video featuring local music star Har Mar Superstar for the details.
Here's how it works: First, pick out any Blu Dot item you want, then add an interesting offer in exchange for that item — taxidermy collections, bizarre self portraits, and balloon animal parties are all fair game. Then, upload your offer to the site between now and March 11. You can also submit an under-five-minute-long video to help promote your offer. Be sure to check the site to see the status of your bid.
No minors are allowed, and nothing overly weird or disturbing, please (in Blu Dot's words, "be creative but don't be stupid"). Interested in adding your talent or item to the online swap meet? Find out more information about this promotion on Blu Dot's Swap Meet page or Facebook page
