Krrb was created by AREA 17, an interactive agency in New York City and Paris, France. Krrb is an online venue made exclusively for local and in-person commerce. Krrb’s mission is to create a fun, friendly, and safe online venue to buy, sell, trade, and give to your neighbors – both locally and in-person. It is like an online garage sale, block sale, flea market and local classifieds where second-handers, crafters, collectors, designers, artisanal local food-makers and common folks can easily connect – taking advantage of all that the internet has to offer – while retaining a personal and face-to-face relationship. Krrb puts you at the center of your stomping ground and displays all that your neighbors have to offer.

Partners & Spade
Partners & Spade, established in 2008 by Andy Spade and Anthony Sperduti, is a storefront and studio on Great Jones Street in the NoHo neighborhood of lower Manhattan. The studio produces films, books, apparel and conceptual products as well as marketing and branding projects for select coporate clients. The storefront, open on the weekends to the public, presents a constantly re-imagined group show of artwork, objects, collections and ideas generated by an ever changing cast of collaborators.
Begun as a means for its founders to pursue varied creative interests, Partners & Spade draws on Spade and Sperduti’s collective experience in advertising, filmmaking and fashion to create compelling brand strategies, products and one-of-a-kind artifacts, as well as a unique space for art happenings and special gatherings.
