The Hunt is a community that tracks down the items you covet but don't know where to find.
The startup provides a community-driven shopping experience that helps consumers find and purchase items inspired by those photos on social networks. Here’s how it works. You join the site, and can post a photo of an item you are looking for. You can upload photos from any website or connect to Tumblr, Instagram and Pinterest to get your likes and posts imported.
Members “can start a hunt” by clicking on a button that links recent photos they’ve “liked” on Tumblr, Instagram and Pinterest, or from any website. They then fill out characteristics about their photo that will help others hunt for the item or similar items.
