How one woman managed to trade a bobby pin for a tiny house

NDTV – A woman in California has managed to exchange a bobby pin for a small cabin through a series of clever trade-ups.

Demi Skipper, from the San Francisco Bay area, started her Trade Me Project on Instagram and TikTok back in May, reported Ladbible.

“Original item = one bobby pin. Follow along to watch me trade my way to a house,” she wrote, sharing a picture of the bobby pin that she later traded for a pair of earrings.

After six months of trading and 25 swaps, Skipper has managed to turn the bobby pin into a small, luxurious cabin. Over the course of these six months, she also amassed over four million followers on TikTok and 200,000 followers on Instagram.

Announcing the impressive success of her Trade Me Project, she said: “After six months of trading a single bobby pin until I have a house, it finally happened. In my last trade, I traded a 2006 Mustang for a 2011 Jeep.

“I traded the Jeep for a brand new Wild Bound Tiny Cabin. The trade really is unbelievable.”
