In just 4 short weeks, HOBO has grown to over 170 vendors and over 500 fans - and it is still growing strong!  To commemorate this, we are offering all the exciting items in our 500 fan celebration giveaway album, with a cool new twist! This giveaway is winner takes all! That is right, one winner will take the lot!

HOBO is fast becoming The One Stop Shop Place to find exciting items from Home Based Business Owners, along with the complete contact information to contact each and every vendor, in one easy to use page! 

Our albums include so many categories, that it is difficult to list them all as they are being added to each week!  We also have an exciting Barter album, and one that shows the best that each participating HOBO has to offer! 

Where do we go from here?  Well, soon we will add an album that showcases vendors that contribute all or a portion of each sale to charity!  Every day we come up with a new way for HOBO's to connect with and help each other, and their shoppers!  We continue to grow and evolve, network, support and encourage one another, and that my friends is an EXCITING PLACE TO BE!

IF for some reason when you try to AGREE to our rules page, or ENTER at our prizes page (see tabs above our HOBO LOGO PIC), there is no comment block available (blogger does that on occasion), dont worry, just email me at, in the subject line write GIVEAWAY ENTRY, and in the body of the email, leave your agreement to the rules, and an email address at which you can be contacted! We will get you entered! GOOD LUCK!

Today, to celebrate our upcoming milestone of 500 fans, and to showcase our over 160 HOBO's best work, we kicked off an ALL NEW ALBUM!  We named the new album SEE THE HOBO's BEST, and all our HOBO's are being invited to contribute an item, or promo code to best showcase their shoppe!  I think this new album is very very exciting!  Not only will it be an easy way for a new shopper to browse our shoppe links all in one place, but it will give all of us HOBO's a place to showcase our best work and another way to drive traffic to our sites!  It certainly is an exciting day to be a HOBO!  Here we grow again!

Its 10pm the night before our three week milestone, and thanks to the BEST GROUP OF HOBO'S and FANS in the whole wide world, HOBO has had a stellar sign up day, and we just reached # 409 fans!  I am ECSTATIC!

HOBO is Three Weeks Old!

On May 18th, in just one more day, HOBO will officially be 3 weeks old!  That is a MAJOR ACCOMPLISHMENT, that reflects a lot of hardwork, dedication and teamwork from a great bunch of HOBO's!  I could not be happier to have made so many wonderful acquantances on my journey with this adventure, and I could not be prouder to see it making such a splash in the Facebook Ocean so soon!  We have nearly 400 fans, at the time of this posting, and nearly 120 diverse vendors in categories I didn't even have dreamt up when I started this! 

Thank you each and every one of you, vendors and fans alike!  You have been a big part in launching this dream of mine, and I am forever grateful!

Barter Update!

The deal has been made!  Woo Hoo, the first (that I know of) successful barter has been closed at HOBO!  NOW you can't get a deal like that at WALMART!  Trust me!

Just Starting Out

Well it has been a whirlwind three weeks for HOBO One!  This all started with me wanting to support other home owned businesses, by purchasing what I could from them instead of the Bigbox Corporate Giants.  The problem was that even though I had "met" and made contact with thousands of Home Owned Businesses, through my adventures on FaceBook, with countless specialties, I could not remember for the life of me who did what!  I wanted to find a way to put them all in one place, with all the information that I would ever need to contact them, so that this would not be a problem again.  I could one stop shop, for whatever my heart desires.  I knew just what I wanted the page to look like and was about to get it off the ground, but needed a name.  During a brainstorming session, Poppy came up with the clever moniker, HOBO,  and a star was born.  I made the page and started inviting people to join me, and in less than three weeks, we have over 120 HOBO's and over 350 fans on our little page!  I would say we are off to a running start.  Now if only I could decide, what is the next step....  Oh well, it will come to me I am sure!  Meanwhile, I have good friends and lots of products from which I and 350 other people can choose from!  My latest success?  I am about to close the deal (I hope) on my first successful Barter Transaction from my posting in the HOBO BARTER ALBUM!  Now that, is cool!
