Greetings from Crave!

We have a lot of great stuff coming your way in May. Along with our usual new and good priced listings, we have rolled out a new home page, our May Seller Contest is in full swing, and loads of new listings are going up daily. We are also revving up for BotCon and am hoping to see you there! If you have not checked out Crave yet, now is the perfect time to do so! Enjoy!

New Home Page:
We updated our homepage this week. Now you can get a taste of the direction Crave is heading in. We are going to continue to maintain our awesome TF Marketplace, but we will also expand the site with new distinct marketplaces for other collectibles. If you’re a fan of G.I. Joe, Magic, or other collectibles be sure to visit Crave and either vote for an available category or suggest a new one!

May Seller Contest Update:
We are approaching the mid-point of the May seller contest, which means there is still time to compete! The name of this month’s contest is TRAFFIC! The seller who can get the most eyes on their merchandise will be crowned the winner. There are prizes for 1st and 2nd place in two categories: most overall traffic and most single listing traffic. Visit our blog for a complete set of rules and suggestions for how to win!

Here’s what members are saying about Crave:

“The social platform is pretty cool in its own right, and the marketplace is cool because no one can swipe a purchase out from under you at the last minute, there's no hassle… I compare Crave to being at a convention circa 1997, where it's just a bunch of guys selling there stuff and there is no bull crap in between.” – Rob Springer

"I had a great experience with both purchases I've made through Crave.
Better than using eBay because it is so easy and safe. Try it out
and you'll see how much simpler the experience is." – Larry Carter Jr.

"Selling on Crave is the easiest online transaction I've ever done. They pay close attention to every sale and purchase, track the shipments to ensure timely delivery, and make sure that both parties are completely satisfied with each transaction. The money transfer is smooth and secure. What more can you ask for?" – Brandt Gibson

BotCon 2011:
Crave will be at BotCon 2011 and we could not be more excited. If you are going to be there and want to say hi drop us a line and let us know you’re attending. You can find how to contact us at the bottom of this posting! Also, be sure to check out some of our recent BotCon listings from years past:
