I am a Pinterest-aholic and love shopping on Pinterest. But I was constantly clicking on clothes, shoes or purses from Pinterest and getting to either broken links, blocked links or just the image. I couldn’t find where to buy it, how much it was or even just to see more about it. So…I got together with a developer friend of mine and we developed Picnic. This is a free bookmarklet so I (and all my Pinterest friends) could find the original source image of pins.

I made this video to show how it works:

So now whenever I am on Pinterest and want to find out more about a certain pin I just click Picnic and then Find It on the search page. I am now able to find out all kinds of things about my pins. Here are a few other ways my friends are using Picnic on Pinterest:
