Have you ever been in the situation that you have been visiting a foreign country only to find out that they had a unique good there that you needed a constant supply of? Or something that you did not buy during your visit but are craving for now? Bringsome may be the solution in all of those cases.
I was in Sweden just a few months ago and found some great tasting sweets over there. I bought lots of them but they are unfortunately gone by the time of writing this article and I would really want a constant supply of that sweets. Bringsome brings people together.
People that are living in the country are offering to send goods from that country to others and so are people on vacation.
Bringsome lists wanted and offered ads on their website bringing those who crave for items and those who can supply them together.
The site is currently in beta which means that you will not find that many ads yet but they are surely on the rise. A cooperation with one of the big travel websites would do wonders though.
Bringsome offers a nice unique concept and guess what I found a supplier for Swedish goods there.
Update: Bringsome is out of beta, and while the development blog is not overly active, users from all over the world can now join the service directly from the website.
The service does not appear to be overly popular, and while that is the case, you may still find someone in a foreign country who is willing to provide you with goods from that country.
