    It's amazing how fast this company grew over the years. I remember when it was in it's infancy and to be honest I didn't even give it the time of day until a few years ago because it was for a lack of a better word: lame.
    I think once everyone grew tired of the constant rising ebay costs they slowly started to segue over to reverb which is most likely one of the biggest contributing factors of their growth.
    I can only imagine what the sale price was, but it's likely in Etsy's best interest to simply oversee this company and let well enough alone in order to keep that money machine rolling because it's all often that companies buy or merge with another only to shoot themselves in the foot and ruin it.

    I find it funny - a lot of people on facebook are decrying Etsy and predicting the end for Reverb. Etsy is going to do 797 million in Revenue this year. I'd say having their backing is only a good thing.

    I totally agree with you Ben, it's a great thing that they were bought by a company that can fund it in the way Etsy is able to do.
