Fancy might have to compete with Pinterest for the ‘save anything’ spotlight, but the network has something that Pinterest doesn’t have yet: investors. Jake Frey created and saved a magnetic light switch-slash-key holder and sold it directly to a few Fancy users. Shortly, an investor reached out to Frey and offered $250,000 to mass produce the creation. Fancy users are also interacting with the service more than Pinterest users, with each member averaging the creation of 66 posts instead of Pinterest’s average of 3.
