Its that time again, folks! Check your pockets, check under the couch cushions, dig through your old purses and find whatever spare cash you can- The Wash’s Biannual Cart Sale is underway!
From now until March 19th, the streets of The Wash have been taken over by designers from all over the grid. Everything on the carts is 10L or under and there is a HUGE assortment of stuff both new and exclusive and old favorites that the designers are practically giving away during this event. We have been getting all sorts of blogger copies of stuff to show off and over the next few days we’ll be posting all the goodies here, so be sure to check back often. You never know when you might see that certain special something you cannot live without!
Today kicked off the opening of the Wash’s Black Event Cart Sale and Hunt. This is the perfect time for an event devoted to the color black: with the holidays fast approaching, who doesn’t need a new LBD for upcoming festive occasions? There are a ton of great designers taking part in the cart sale. As usual, all cart items are 10L or under and for this go-round, there may be up to 3 special items per cart that are priced at 50L, which is still a steal!
Additionally, the Black Event has added a new twist: The Black Hunt. There are 8-balls hidden around the Wash sim containing special free gifts from some of the vendors. I don’t have an exact count of how many, but I know of at least 21 balls which are hidden. The event vendor list page also has a few hints from those designers who provided them to the blog staff. That list will be updated as the designers send them in.
We’ll be posting some of the goodies available during the event over the next few days, so be sure to check back often to see the updates!

Its that time again – the 10L Cart Sale kicks off today at The Wash! There is as great lineup of designers taking part in the event. Over the next few days we will be bringing you a look at the fantastic deals available during this limited event. As always, all item are 10L or under and the event runs from September 4th to September 25th. Hope to see you there!
The sun is beating down hot and golden, the sand is warm between your toes and the scent of ocean and suntan lotion lingers in the air – summer is here at The Wash! From now until June 19th, we have turned the Wash into a giant beach party, filled with all kinds of fabulous summer must-haves. There are 66 designers taking part in the Beach Party event, all their wares laid out on colorful towels spread throughout the sim. In a slight deviation from most Wash events, there is 1 item at 50L on most towels and all other items are at 10L or under. Over the next week or so we will be taking a look at all sorts of great summer items available during this event.
There is a main directory page located HERE which has direct SLurls to the various carts. The sim does get crowded at times, so be kind to yourself and the other shoppers and leave your highly scripted items at home when you come visit.
It’s that time again, inveterate SL bargain shoppers – the Wash is proud to present Cart Sale, Feb. 2013 edition! The sim has again been invaded by oodles of carts set up by a multitude of designers from across the SL grid, all showcasing some of their most tempting items for the bargain basement price of 10L or under. Over the next few days we will be bringing you a look at some of the great items you can score, but remember – the event is for a limited time only. Some of these items are Cart Sale exclusives and not available in stores and some are discounted for the duration of the Cart Sale only – so if you miss this event, you may be out of luck!
We’re kicking off our look at all the great items available this time around with A.R.C.+F.N, Arctic Storm and Masoom:
A.R.C.+F.N. has some great items for both normal-sized avs and petites, as well as an absolutely adorable glowy snail. Special thank you to DelaRosa Glimmer for taking time from her busy schedule to model the petite items for us.
Arctic Storm has a beautiful gown in 4 vibrant colors that can be worn in 3 different ways. Their faux rabbit fur coat was also very cute, with multiple wear options (long or short coat lengths).
Masoom’s Leo dresses were our favorite of their offerings, mostly because I am a sucker for anything with floofy fur and animal prints. Most of their items include mesh and everything looked/fit just beautifully.
In honor of the current Black Event at The Wash sim, let me share something I read with you: “Black can be serious and conventional or it can be sexy and rebellious. It can help you disappear into the crowd or make you stand out and shine.” The Black Event designers have taken black and created a truly amazing collection of items for this limited time Wash event. Once again, I am privileged to be bringing you a look at all the gorgeous offerings available during this 10L sale. We have everything from clothing to furnishings to accessories. There is stuff for the guys, stuff for the petite lovers, stuff for every fashion sense from drop-dead glamor to die-hard goths.
Each designer has also graciously included a FREE item as well, so there are gifts to be had when you come down and check out the sale. As with most Wash events, all sales items are 10L or under. The designers have also been given a larger sale item allotment this time around (up to 20 items instead of 10), so there are many more items to browse than in the usual Cart Sale events. Be sure to give yourself lots of time to explore when you visit and check in with this blog often for updates as we get more of these great deals posted. This blog also has a post with the direct SLurls to the various designers to help get around the sim.
We’re kicking off the blog-a-thon with a peek at what’s waiting for you from A.R.C.+F.N., Liderc and DemotiK. We are going to forego the usual description of items we do for the Cart Sale simply because there is SO MUCH good stuff here, we’d end up writing a novel per post.
Quick notes: Thank you to DelaRosa Glimmer for modeling the petite items from A.R.C.+F.N.! The Liderc collars come in mod/trans and mod/copy versions. The DemotiK boots come in petite and regular sizes.
The pictures do not do justice to the detailing and gorgeous textures, but welcome to the Wash’s Black Event!
Howdy, folks! It’s that time again, another round of the Cart Sale at The Wash has kicked off today with TONS of goodies for the discriminating shopper! For those of you who have not been lucky enough to take part in the previous Cart Sale events, here is a quick rundown of what to expect:
1) ALL items on the carts are 10L or under (the occasional designer sneaks in a freebie if you keep your eyes peeled!)
2) This is a limited time event – once its over, its over, so don’t miss your chance to score some great items at fantastic prices.
3) The event is held on The Wash sim. Lots of people shop during this sale, so be kind to your fellow shoppers and leave the high ARC and high script items at home – trust me, nothing is more frustrating than being lagged to heck and back trying to get through the carts and see all the great stuff that is available.
4) Directly related to #3, on occasion the sim gets full up and you can’t teleport in. Don’t panic – just wait a few minutes and try again. =)
5) Keep an eye on the blog – we are going to be showcasing as many of the designers as we can during the event. Its a great way to get a look at whats included in the event this time around and you can also get direct SLurls to the individual carts (there is a post earlier in the blog which lists every cart/store/Slurl).
First up today, we got a wonderful collection of clothing from Amour Fashion/Rispetto Designs. The stores have been around for a while and I have been seeing them more and more lately taking part in events throughout SL. I am in love with the white mini skirt outfit – the breezy mesh dotted top is just gorgeous! They also have some great items for the guys and at 10L, its a really fun way to beef up your wardrobe.
A.R.C. + F.N. always manages to come up with some truly creative items for the Cart Sale event and this time around is no exception. They have 3 cute outfits just for petites (thank you to DelaRosa Glimmer, not only for the lovely items to blog, but for being my petite model for the pictures!) as well as some pretty things for us big folks. The cow is a must-have! =)
Rounding out our first peek, we also have some gorgeous builds from BagLady Design. The handbags are beautifully detailed and the home furnishing items not only look great, but most of them include animations (such as planting with the garden build) that make them a lot of fun to have around.
More to come, so stay tuned!
Its a cool, rainy Sunday in my corner of the world today – perfect weather for doing a little exploring and shopping in SL. The Cart Sale is a great place to accomplish both those goals. I have been really impressed with the diversity of items that the designers have come up with this time around, not to mention the sheer number of merchants that are taking part. At 120+ carts, this is the biggest Cart Sale event to date!
First up today in our bag of goodies is Heartsick. They make gorgeous skins and shapes and have come up with some stunning items this time around. Both of the girl skins come with shapes, and the male skins come with 2 shapes.
Clutter has beautiful landscaping items to enhance your home and living space. They are offering several different trees and stumps with pretty little flowers and plants which would add a gorgeous finishing touch to your yard, park or outdoor space.
If you are looking for a little walk on the wild side, Aberrant has you covered! They have a trio of hot little slip dresses with a shredded detail on the backs, some cute lacy little bras and leopard-print detailed boy briefs in a variety of vibrant colors to choose from.
A.R.C.+F.N. are covering all the bases this time around! They have sexy little latex outfits, some very pretty jewelry sets, some home decor items, and even a furnished house, all for 10L each. My personal favorite was the donut seats!
Okay, it’s not quite Christmas, but thanks to A.R.C.+F.N., you can find sugarplum elves at the Neverwas Is Event already! They have put together a collection of fantasy skins and avatars for you that are absolutely stunning. The Elf series is beautiful, with matching ears that come pierced or non-pierced. The complete avatars are gorgeous, with fantastic attention paid to all the little details that really bring the different looks to life. Additionally, they have come up with 2 really great builds for the mermaids out there – a pearl shell and a beautiful aquatic tank.
A.R.C.+F.N. have slashed their prices for this event tremendously. If you love fantasy and you love making your avatar really express your inner fae, this is definitely a sale you don’t want to miss – at these prices, these looks are a steal! Additionally, they have a gorgeous moon and star choker available as a free gift when you visit their stump at the Neverwas Is Event.

There is so much good stuff at the Cart Sale, it’s tough to choose what to show first! Here’s a little peek at the offerings from [aberrant] and A.R.C. + F.N., just to whet the appetite until the next set is ready to go. Be sure to come down to the Wash sim and spend some time checking out all the great designers who are taking part in this event – for every fantastic set of items we show here, there is even more waiting to be discovered.
As veteran Cart Wash shoppers know, the sim does fill up at times. If you can’t port in, just give it a few minutes and try again. Also, reducing your scripts and ARC is much appreciated to help keep lag to a minimum.
