Barnebys Closes $3.3M Financing


Barnebys, a Stockholm, Sweden-based international online service that allows people to search for, compare and buy items from dealers and auction houses around the world, closed a $3.3m new round of financing.

Backers included Industrifonden, Howsat Venture Partners, Accum Kapital and Kichi Invest.

The company intends to use the funds to expand operations in the US.

It offers access to items from 2,000 auction houses and dealers and has about 700,000 lots available to its users on a daily basis.
Barnebys also provides buyers and sellers with a free, online realized-price database documenting the final selling prices of 32 million items.
