VB&P Leasing Office Space for $10 a Year

A tipster turned us on to what looks like a legit Craigslist post from San Francisco indie agency Venables Bell & Partners, which just opened its Lumberyard unit while continuing to celebrate its 10th anniversary with perhaps one of the most economical deals we’ve seen in quite some time. According to the post (which sources say is the real deal), “…To celebrate our 10-year anniversary, we’re proposing some office space with us for $10 a year. Maybe it’s one desk. Maybe it’s 11. Who knows? Let’s see who’s out there. The price is just our gift to a few entrepreneurs out there because we know it’s not always easy to get things off the ground. We started our business during a recession too.”

There is an application process, obviously, for VB&P’s “Office Space Contest, ” which you can take a look at here. From what we gather, your $10 a year, if you make the cut, will ensure that you won’t get stuck in the basement with your Swingline.
