Surprisingly Convincing Argument About Shopping Limitations On Amazon

Why have flash sales sites like the marketplace for design products Fab.com grown so quickly?

CEO and co-founder Jason Goldberg says that while Amazon is the go-to place for shoppers who know exactly what they want, Fab offers a casual, browsing shopping experience that most people can relate to.
