Wow, bootstrapping is hard!

Hi folks, We've been working hard trying to get some traction for swapzaar.com ( an online marketplace to buy and sell pre-owned fashion brands- premium and luxury) and as it is known in startup circles; we are in the phase where we need to develop a proper product-market fit. 


Once we have demonstrated a decent fit, we can actually raise some external capital (angels. VCs etc) and take out dream to the next level.

We now have 2000+ registered members on swapzaar.com- Yay!! The challenge is now to get them to upload nice stuff, they're buying the stuff already listed but they are lazy to upload good stuff, which we **Know** is lying idle in their closets.

What-o-what will inspire them to list that cool stuff with us?

Please share your thoughts...

Also- check out our brochure below and let us know what you think.

Bizarre fashion Laws from around the world- Infographic by swapzaar.com

Here are some strange fashion related laws from across the world.

No trousers in Paris?
The law was put into existence in 1800 and revoked only in 2013!!
It was modified in 1892 and 1909 to allow women to wear trousers if they were "holding a bicycle handlebar or the reins of a horse".
Incredible, isn't it?

Apparently, this law is one of the most flouted laws in the world :-D is anyone surprised?
