Fancy is an online store for some really…well..fancy and often hipster stuff. The site boasts a “crowd-curated catalog of amazing goods, wonderful places and innovative stores.” For instance, you can buy this Salvador Dali Melting Wrist Watch at Fancy.

Instant surrealism. No psychedelics required.

And now, you can buy any item on the site with Bitcoin.

CEO Joe Einhorn stated,

“We are excited to play a small part in the next chapter for BitCoin, the one where people are able to exchange BitCoin for goods and services…Fancy has some of the coolest merchandise available for purchase with BitCoin and we have saavy, international clientele who want to shop this way. Let’s see what happens!”

Paying with Bitcoin is simple. The option is available on the purchase page along with other options like MasterCard and VISA.

“Accepting Bitcoin is a great opportunity for Fancy to continue to give the best shopping experience to our 10 million customers.”

It certainly is. Accepting Bitcoin has already been massively successful for merchants like Overstock. As such, it’s likely that Fancy will follow a similar path.

I enjoy keeping up with the latest stuff in science and technology and have been following Bitcoin for a few years now. I also occasionally post cool stuff on twitter.
