Record Album Twist: New items posted to Shook!

There are some creative people out there, and Jeff is certainly one of them. He created something so unique that I’ve never seen done before. Jeff salvaged some old record albums which any other person may have just thrown away, and did something extraordinary  to them. He made them into notebook covers and candy/fruit bowls.

You won’t find this kind of stuff everywhere, but you will find it on www.shook.co

Imagine what eBay would look like, if it was launched today.

It would, of course, be built from the ground up with strong social functionality. It would also probably incorporate some of the highly visual elements of something like Pintrest. We reckon it would also take a minimalist approach to design, a bit like Google+.

What would eBay look like if it was launched today? Shook.

Shook defines itself as an ‘open auction house’ that allows users to create an auction online to sell just about anything and then spread it across the social networks. When you place a bid on an item, it’s automatically shared across your social graph. The idea is to make the bidding process fun, engaging and interactive – just like it is in real life.

We were so taken with the concept that we reached out to them. We got in contact with…

Starting Your Business

Finally, you’re ready to get rid of that old Yamaha keyboard or part ways with an adored iMac — the one with the Dalmatian pattern. There are plenty of sites where you can sell your used goods online. But if you prefer selling your old merchandise to people who you know will benefit from them, join Shook.co.

Shook.co is a social marketplace where you can sell your used belongings online to Facebook friends. The site lets you auction second-hand items (and new ones too) and have your friends and their social networks compete over it. All you have to do is list the item, describe it, take a picture of it, and explain its condition. Then sit back and let the bidding begin!

Shook’s story exemplifies social shopping at its best — bringing together trusted friends as sellers and buyers, while creating a forum where they can recommend purchases…

Hey I just met you – It’s time for an introduction

At Shook we have the best staff. There are just four of us but it’s amazing what this small group can do. Well four humans and three dogs…

There’s Niv. He’s one of the co-founders of Shook and a computer programmer. On a personal note, Niv has helped me out a lot since I started working here. We often collaborate and brainstorm ideas together.  His dog’s name is Luna and she is a beautiful husky.

Idan works closely with Niv, because he is also one of the co-fouders of Shook. Idan is a web-developer and ensures that Shook is working properly and is always up-to-date. He taught his dog Shimshon how to do some pretty cute tricks. Idan’s dog may be small, but that doesn’t stop Luna from playing with him!

Nitzan is our designer. He makes amazing graphics which allows our users to enjoy their experience with Shook more. He is the reason Shook looks this good! You can see his designs on Shook as well as the blog. His dog’s name is Laika and she loves to give high-fives! She is the quietest dog in the bunch but is so much fun to be around.


And then there’s me (Jackie), the newest employee at Shook. I am the social content manager; I do things like update the blog, Twitter, Facebook and maintain communication between users. I love working here because I love learning something new everyday. As for now, I’m the only one without a dog, although I am dog-sitting Adele in my apartment for the next month.

 

If you were wondering, there’s usually at least one dog per day in the office. If we’re lucky enough sometimes we have all three. We like to create a fun work environment. We usually have music playing in the background but today was a day where we listened to Call Me Maybe three times! (It’s going to be stuck in my head all day.)

Can you find the dog in this picture? Anyone know which dog this is?

Work it ladies. A dress and jacket you have to see to believe.

Divna, one of our newest friends at Shook, is a great person with some great style! That’s right ladies, this post is for you. Finding a dress to wear to an event can be stressful. You need to make sure that it’s fashionable enough, appropriate for the specific event you are going to and affordable. Divna made this dress in a moment of inspiration, and wouldn’t waste a moment on anything else until the dress was complete. It’s brown and very elegant, with an opened back. On the side of the dress is a yellow flower which is attached by safety pins. You can change it’s location or take it off entirely if you please. It’s sure to match whatever kind of event you’re going to!

 

Divna also opened a second item on Shook. It is a beautiful jacket and there is only 1 in the entire world! Here at Shook, we are loving these designs by Divna.

 

So if you have a formal event coming up and are looking for that perfect dress or jacket (maybe both) that will get everyone talking, then check out Divna’s designs at www.shook.co 

What do you think of the dress and jacket? Can you imagine yourself wearing one of them? Or maybe even both? Comment below and let us know what you think! 🙂

Put your game face on

Friday night is game night in Robert’s house. His whole family gathers around the table with their game faces on and ready to go. Things tend to get a little competitive, especially when it’s time to play Monopoly. Sure they play lots of games but let’s face it,nothing beats Monopoly. It’s the only game they can all agree on. Robert’s new favorite was the Here and Now Edition because it’s the more updated version of the game. He plays it for hours at a time with his wife and kids.

Think you have the all the right moves to play? Then make a bid on Monopoly Here and Now Edition on www.shook.co and see if you’ve got the moves.

The 3 Beauties

Brian is a brilliant artist who is committed 100% to abstraction. His paintings speak for themselves. They are alluring, magnificent, stunning and all unique from the rest. Brian conveys his feelings through contrast and texture. His paintings inspire him to create geometric shapes, lines, scratches, brush marks and movement onto the canvas. The artists who have influenced Brian the most are Virginia Cobb and Richard Diebenkorn.

The three paintings that he listed on www.shook.co are all acrylic on canvas. Don’t miss out on your chance to bid for Brian’s Paintings.

Bring back the iMac!

Our friend Andy knows a lot about technology. He knows all about the newest and the best. Today, there always seems to be something new that we need to get from Apple. There’s the iPod, iPad, the iPhone and the Mac. But let’s take a look back in history, all the way back to 1998. The coolest thing that Steve Jobs created thus far was called the iMac: the personal computer. You remember these don’t you? Well not only does Andy remember, but he still has his!

If you’re looking to bring back some memories of what computers used to be like, then check out Andy’s iMac Dalmatian pattern computer.

Comment below and let us know what you remember from these computers. What was your favorite part about using one?

And of course, meet our friend Andy!
