Pinterest may not be the first one to use grids for its layout to highlight the images uploaded by its subscribers, but it has surely been the driving force that made this style gain the unfathomable popularity it has. The user preference for the grid style goes on to show that instead of text placed one line after another, they are more interested in seeing their pictorial illustration laid out neatly in rows. That was probably the inspiration behind the introduction of a web app called Rummage, which places images of the articles on sale on eBay similar to the grid theme employed by Pinterest.
You can search for the items you are looking for by browsing through the different categories provided in the list on Rummage. What it effectively does is that it minimizes the textual part and helps you browse through larger size pictures of the item for which you ran a search. The prices and the time left till product availability is given at the bottom of each image.
If you like an object, you can click on its image to view its details, which include the price, the time left till the product is on display, product location and the seller’s information along with the feedback he has received. You may even choose to see the product on eBay itself by clicking on a tab provided on the detail page.
You may not feel the appeal for Rummage if you want to make purchases in bulk and will find eBay more practical. However, for one-time purchase, it is a neat and useful website to get access to eBay listings.
