Sizzling Summer Sunday!

Standard

It’s been a glorious weekend here in SL with tons of events, parties and all around fun going on – hope you were able to indulge in some of it!  One of the best events right now is the Sizzling Summer Cart Sale, midway through its current round at The Wash. Everything you need to keep the fun going is right here – cute summer outfits, bright party gear (those long dresses from Mishmash Fusion are begging for a beach party and icy cold margaritas!) and tons of things to perk up your living space and create the ultimate summer ambiance for your own get togethers.

Since this *is* a Cart Sale event, you know we’re not going to break the bank – most items are priced from 10-25L, which practically makes them a steal.  Certain items are tagged at 50L and there are even a plethora of freebie gifts (keep an eye out for those pretty teal packages!) to delight your senses.

The event runs until July 24th, so you have about 10 more days before these deals are gone forever – if you haven’t made a trip down yet to browse our streets, what are you waiting for?

Hope to see you there and happy shopping!

Winter Wonderland is open!

Standard

The holiday season is upon us and Second Life is hopping with events, sales, hunts, and other activities. It’s almost as crazy hectic as real life this time of year! The Wash is no exception – we have decked the halls, spiked the egg nog, and set up a fabulous Winter Wonderland Cart Sale just to add a little kick to the season.

This round, we have over 60 designers joining us in making your holiday bright and cheery. Cart sale items are a fantastically low 10L each, and a little elf told me most of the designers have also put out a special 50L item just for this round! The event is running from December 12th (yeah, I know – the elves have me a little overwhelmed with goodies to unpack, so I am behind getting the blog rolling this round!) until January 2nd, which gives you about 2 weeks or so to come down and take a look through these wonderful bargains.

Think about it – you spend all your time and money this time of year making the holidays perfect for all your loved ones, why not treat yourself to a little treat as well?

Over the next few days, I will be bringing you a peek at some of the lovely things you can find while this round lasts, so be sure to check back on the blog.

Its Cart Sale Time Again!!

Standard

Welcome to the August round of the Bi-Annual Cart Sale at The Wash! From today until September 5th, The Wash has been taken over by kiosks set all around their streets, overflowing with goodies. You will find all style of clothing, home accessories, DIY items for you builders out there and much, much more. For the next few days, we’ll be showcasing some of the beautiful items you can find at the Cart Sale during this round.

Someone asked me why this round is called the “Bi-Annual” round, when we do an average of 4 rounds a year. Twice a year we do themed events, and each has its own name based on the theme. The other 2 rounds are theme-less – we just turn the designers loose and let them come up with whatever tickles their fancy. Those theme less rounds are the Bi-Annual rounds. What does that mean for this round? It means there is literally no telling what you will find when you check out their displays (as if you needed even more incentive to get down here!).

The August round runs from today (August 22nd) to September 5th and all items are priced at 10L for the duration of the event. Hope to see you there!

Life is “Sunny Side Up”!

Standard

Have you heard? Its Cart Sale time at the Wash again! The “Sunny Side Up” round kicked off at midnight and it promises to be a blast. The summer fairies visited the sim and turned the ordinarily paved streets of the Wash into prime beachfront property, complete with sand and beach balls to kick around as you explore.

The event runs from May 2nd to May 16th – that’s right, this is a 2-week special engagement before the summer fairy’s spell ends and it all goes back to normal. There are around 60 merchants taking part and in addition to the usual 10L items, each merchant has the option of setting out one special item priced at 50L. Be sure to check back to the blog often as we will be sharing some of the highlights of the event throughout the week.

Cart Sale is OPEN!!

Standard

I love winter and all the accompanying cold weather, snow and the chances to curl up with a hot cocoa and spend the day Netflixing while it storms outside, but around this time of year, a general winter fatigue sets in. Your thoughts shift from “Yay, snow day!” to “OMG, it’s freakin’ cold and I am sick of shoveling (grumble grumble grumble)…” Here at the Cart Sale, we thought we’d help kick the winter blues a bit by bringing a sneak peek at Spring in all its coming glory. That’s right – the “Spring is Here!” round of Cart Sale has kicked off with a bang, bringing with it tons of bargains on some pretty great warmer weather stuff.

This round of the Cart Sale event runs from January 31st to February 14th – which gives you a few weeks to stock up before that first real spring thaw hits. (Also – Valentine’s Day, people! Its coming quick and there are some awfully cute items in this round to help make that perfect Valentines date outfit or romance up your living space.)

As with every Cart Sale, keep checking this space for more good stuff – over the next few days, we’ll be bringing a look at as many of the fabulous 10L offerings as we can, just to see if we can tempt any of you lovely readers into paying us a visit. Many of the items set out by our designers are brand new and after the event will only be available at regular prices, so this is a great chance to scoop up some really gorgeous new items at insanely low prices.

Happy 10th Anniversary, Cart Sale!

Standard

Good golly, Ms. Molly! As amazing and hard to believe as it is – Welcome to the 10th Anniversary of the Cart Sale at The Wash! That’s right, folks – Grace and I sat down and figured back as far as we could, and this is the 10th year that The Wash has been hosting the Cart Sale. Way back then, when The Wash was a new sim, all tacky texture layer fashions and blocky prim builds, Floatie Hock started the grand tradition that has grown over the years into the Cart Sale. Instead of the kiosks lining the sides of the street that we see today during the sale, she set up actual carts in the middle of the roads and filled the sim with as many fantastic designers as she could entice to sign up. Our “carts” are sleeker today, our wares more elegant and realistic (thank you, mesh and much better texture templates!), but the basic spirit of the event remains the same: A gathering of diverse talents from all across the grid brought together for a super sale event offered at rock bottom prices.

If you haven’t been to the Wash in a while, there are some delightful surprises in store – the sim has undergone some revamping, with the addition of new stores, updated decor and a few extras just for this event. Here is a quick rundown of what to expect:

– Kiosks lining the streets with all the fabulous wares for sale during this event. All items are 10L, and the designers have the option of including a special item priced at 50L.

– Because it’s a celebration, many of the designers have put out gifts for the shoppers – look for the pale green gift boxes.

– As you walk around the sim, you will find a lovely little laundromat tucked into one corner of the sim. The Wash Laundromat is filled with gacha machines for this special round of Cart Sale. Maximum pull price is 50L, but most of them are well under that amount.

– Should you get tired while exploring all the newness on the sim, we have a party pavilion set up beside the Laundromat, where you can hang out and relax, maybe indulge in a treat from one of the dessert tables, or even put your feet up while you cam shop the event.

– There is a yardsale area (in case you never noticed it before) as well – it’s a great place to browse the rental tables and find that perfect gacha item you missed out on from various events around the grid. Items change frequently and you never know what you might find.

Be sure to check back here on the blog over the next few days, as I will be posting periodically to share some of the awesome sale items, gift items and gacha goodies the designers have out during this round of Cart Sale. Happy Anniversary to the Cart Sale!
