New Spree Stores (August 2009)by railsdog

showcase_yellowbird Even though August is traditionally a slow business time for most developers, there were still a bunch of new sites launched. There were seven new Spree sites announced by various developers in our community. Nuwan announced the creation of ZionPet which is a nice basic pet store. The same developer also created two similar sites Bite Me and Sue's Pet Castle. Just a quick note that several developers are also working on multi store extensions which will make building and operating related stores like this a snap.

Spree was mentioned a few weeks ago on a French language blog post. Right around this time we also started to see a few new Spree sites in French. We recently learned about this great looking model RC helicopter site. There's also this interesting fashion site which makes some interesting use of Flash.

I thought the developer of this paper product site did a nice job making an engaging site for what I would otherwise consider to be a pretty dull product. Simple design but it looks nice. While we're on the subject of design, you should definitely take a look at the Yellow Bird Project site which received a nice writeup on the Web Designers Depot blog .

If you'd like to share your Spree site with the rest of us, please drop us a line on spree-user.
