For this first installment of ‘Ubokia Stories’ we want to share the story of Karen. Karen is a busy mom who has her hands full watching after her children. She really wanted a trundle bed but, as it goes with busy moms, lacked the time necessary to scan through the endless and often irrelevant ads on Craigslist. Having recently heard about Ubokia she decided to give it a try. In less than five minutes Karen posted a Want for a trundle bed on Ubokia excited at the thought of a seller coming to her instead of the other way around. That’s where Cathy came in.
Cathy lived in the same town as Karen, but the two had never met. As she was browsing the Wants on Ubokia she came across Karen’s Want for a trundle bed. Cathy had been wanting to sell her trundle bed which was just sitting in her garage collecting dust, but never trusted Craigslist after hearing numerous horror stories. She immediately contacted Karen and made an offer to sell her trundle bed.
Thrilled to have found a seller in her own community, Karen responded and sealed the deal. They agreed on a date to deliver the bed, and the transaction happened seamlessly and both parties got what they wanted. But something else happened as well. Because of Ubokia, two members in the same community were able to connect in a way that they couldn’t have before, and the moment they met, Cathy and Karen became fast friends. And it all started with a Want.
