Amazon’s Quidsi lauches Vine.com for natural products

Quidsi’s latest generic domain store: Vine.com.

Vine.comI’ve scooped a number of Quidsi store openings based on generic domains they’ve bought — from Afterschool.com to Casa.com.

But I missed this one: Quidsi just launched Vine.com, a store with “natural products for green living”.

George Kirikos points out that the company appears to have acquired the domain name through Mark Monitor over the past few weeks. It was previously owned by a company called Vine Technology.

It’s a great domain and a good idea for a niche store. Still, when I first heard of the store I assumed it was on online wine store. Perhaps this one could have been a little bit more descriptive?

    My thoughts exactly.It doesn’t work for the Green living space. It’s going to take money to brand it that way and that can be done to any name out there.

    However you cut it “Vine” = wine they even have the German version now, thats a 2 for 1 buy !!! Perhaps Quidsi will migrate to wine once the stats come in.

    That’s an interesting domain pickup that could be used a few different ways.

    Can’t wait to see how this one plays out. Thanks for letting me know about it!
