Krrb (pronounced 'curb') is a scavenger hunt at your fingertips where you can thrift, rummage and discover local treasures—at your doorstep or around the world.
Krrb was created for the love of garage sales, thrift shops, flea markets, street fairs and any place someone can thrift, scavenge, rummage, dream and discover local treasures. To obtain a vintage, secondhand or uniquely crafted item with a personal story is endearing, and endows an object with an importance that is priceless.
Most online shops and classifieds feel anonymous, and let’s face it, they are. We believe that people selling to people is a very personal activity, and through personal connection, the stories behind objects are passed along and cherished.
Today, the Internet has introduced a new streamlined way for individuals to buy and sell to each other. But what we’ve gained in speed, convenience and effectiveness, we’ve lost in conviviality, familiarity and fidelity.
We exist for people who love to find things by chance, search for bargains, get things for free or obtain a uniquely crafted item with a personal story. As scavengers ourselves, we want to touch the objects we buy, meet the people we buy them from and hear the stories they have to tell. But we also understand the value of the Internet and how it can help make the initial connection.

It's easy to fall in love with Krrb! Classifieds have never looked this appealing or have been this straightforward. Keeping tabs on what's local, Krrb makes it easy to discover finds you never knew you needed from neighbors you haven't met yet. Plus instant notifications on my iPhone made selling and buying a snap!5 votes | |

Krrb is my go-to app for finding great local goods in my neighborhood. No matter where I am I can open the app to find what is local wherever I am. I particularly use it to buy and sell furniture when I'm redecorating. The interface is beautiful and easy to use! I'd highly recommend it!!5 votes | |

I no longer use Craigslist thanks to Krrb! I love how easy and safe it is to shop secondhand. I've bought a huge bookcase, a record player and some artwork from people in my neighborhood. No more creepy Craigslist for me.4 votes | |
