Jul 08, 2013

The Fancy is a blend of Pinterest and Amazon, selling items curated by users, and investors are taking notice. According to Bloomberg, The Fancy just got an influx of cash with $53 million in investments from Len Blavatnik along with such notable names as American Express and Will Smith (yes, that Will Smith).

The company, which is valued at around $600 million according to Bloomberg, disclosed the funding round during the first week of July, but did not name the investors. American Express's CEO. Edward Gilligan, has joined The Fancy's board.
