WANTS FOR SALE
In July 2007, my husband, Justin, and I started WantsForSale.com. We paint things that we want, then sell the painting for the price of the real item. So you can buy A Wii for $270.92 or a Slice of Pepperoni for $3. When the painting sells we go out and buy that thing.
In the first two weeks, over 40,000 people visited the site and the project has since been featured in Daily Candy, NPR, GOOD, The New York Times Magazine as well as blogs and newspapers worldwide. We fulfilled over 65 wants, including a plate of Buffalo Wings and a full Vegas Vacation.
We also created NeedsForSale.com where we do the same thing, but for charity.
