Treasure Island Wineries, Month-end Flea Market and Art

Treasure Island Wineries and Art 
Don’t want to drive to Napa? Why not  sample wine on Treasure Island!
Start at Fat Grape Winery (always a free tasting!), and then stroll on the island to see the SF and Oakland skylines and also view the interesting art.
 
Stop at least a few more times, select one or two other wineries, there are at least 14 on the island, and even stop to pick up some lunch for a picnic. There are burger places and delis nearby.
Some wineries have a small tasting fee so bring cash for your tasting and food if you don’t want to stop at a deli for the picnic.
It can be windy or foggy, so dress in layers. Comfortable walking shoes are also a good idea.
There are also special events with more activities:

Swapdom Heads Home With New Marketplace

Online Swapping Community is Now Open to Home Goods

SAN FRANCISCO, CA.—May 2014— First, it was fashion. Then, baby and kids’ gear. Now, Swapdom, a one-of-a-kind online exchange system, is opening its marketplace to home goods. Beginning May 12, users can swap items from every room in the house in exchange for other home goods, fashion finds, or baby and kids’ gear. It’s a win-win-win for swappers and a big step forward for the sharing economy.

Just in time for summer, getting new clothes on your fast growing baby, something for you, your home — it’s not new, just new to you. How simple and wonderful is this idea? Great news for getting what you need at a low cost.  — the editor

recycleEngineered to make swapping easy and efficient, users simply request items they love, tell Swapdom what they would like to offer in exchange, and then let the site organize a multi-person swap for them.

“Swapdom is an efficient tool that finds multi-party swaps. Our algorithm is a vital component for peer to peer exchange,” said Petros Georgopoulos, co-founder and CEO of Swapdom. “Adding the home goods marketplace is a natural progression of how our site continues to grow. In five years’ time, when people think of peer-to-peer exchange, we want them to think of Swapdom.”

In addition to the new home goods marketplace, Swapdom is launching a myriad of key initiatives to improve user experience. They just launched a badging system to reward their most engaged community members, and will soon be adding USPS as a new shipping option, in addition to UPS. They will also be launching an iOS app soon, which will make it easier to browse and request swappable items on the go.

ABOUT SWAPDOM
