Happy 4th of July from The Wash!

Standard

I hope all of you who celebrate have a day filled with good food, good friends and family and best of all – gorgeous firework displays once it gets dark. My little corner of the world is drowning in thunderstorms and intermittent rain all day so far, so I am guessing our fireworks will be delayed, but the yummy food is flowing and people are having a good time.

For those of you looking to add a little extra “good time” to your SL, the Sizzling Summer Cart Sale hosted at The Wash is going on right now! We’ve got a great group of over 50 designers participating in this round and with a theme of “Sizzling Summer”, you better believe the array of goods they have put together is HOTTTT! Whether you are looking for a little nautical decor to bring that beachy summer into your home or just something to wear out on these hot summer nights that will turn heads wherever you are, we got you covered!

The event runs until July 24th, so if you are tied up with RL fun over the holiday weekend, don’t worry – you have plenty of time to come down and check out our goodies. There are free gifts to celebrate summer, tons of items in the 10-25L range, and special 50L items (a little birdie told me there are even a few event exclusives out there!), so everyone will find something to tickle their fancy.

Have a safe holiday, and see you there!

Here Comes the Sun…

Standard

Here comes the sun (doo doo doo doo)
Here comes the sun, and I say
It’s all right….

In fact, its more than all right – that glorious spring warmth is exactly what the doctor ordered after such a cold, miserable winter.  I can’t think of any better way to celebrate the end of winter and start of spring than the Cart Sale’s Spring has Sprung event!

For the next three weeks, the streets of the Wash are filled with kiosks offering up some of the best spring gear in SL. I was especially thrilled with all the goodies our delightful motley crew of merchants has put together because I have a soft spot for flowers of all kinds, and the whole spring theme just feeds into that perfectly.  The home decor items this round are truly spectacular.  Of course, if decking out your personal space in SL isnt your thing, you can also find some gorgeous spring fashions (for him, her, and even you tweensters out there!) and a smattering of DIY things to help inspire your own creations.

The event runs until April 19th, so come on down to the Wash and check out the Cart Sale. I guarantee you won’t be disappointed!

Dashing through the SL Snow…

Standard

…on my way to the Winter Wonderland at The Wash!  There is so much going on in SL right now, its insane – between events, shopping specials, advents and all the club activities for the holidays, it is almost more restful to stay in RL!  One thing you can count on, though, among all the festive chaos, is that the Winter Wonderland Cart Sale has some of the best deals on everything you need for the perfect holiday.

Our group of 60+ merchants this round have done an amazing job of pulling together all kinds of outfits, home decor, even DIY items that embody the spirit of the season whether you are celebrating in your own winter wonderland or enjoying the festivities somewhere warm and sunny.

The event runs through January 2nd, so there is plenty of time to come on down and take a stroll through the streets of the Wash. You are sure to find a little something special to add a little cheer to your day.

Dog Days of Summer = Deal Days of SL

Standard

For a lot of folks, this is the worst bit of summer: the days are muggy, too hot, and all that summer fun is starting to take its toll. The new school year is just around the corner, which means unhappy kids (but happy parents!), lots of running around to get new school clothes, supplies, etc. If you are headed back to school yourself, it means moving back into the dorms or trying to get class schedules worked out – not a lot of fun. Well, the Cart Sale is here to save the day! Its a perfect excuse to spend some time inside (yay for AC!) and give yourself a little bit of a boost as the seasons transition.

The August round of Cart Sale is a great way to beat the end of summer blues. This round has no set theme, which means the designers have everything from brightly colored summer outfits (perfect for those of you who are just starting into spring/summer weather) to pretty little gems ideal for cooler fall months. There are all kinds of home decor and items to make your SL living more enjoyable, as well as a selection of do-it-yourself build items for those with an eye for creating their own special pieces.

This is a short round, only 2 weeks, so you don’t want to put off coming to visit and end up missing out. The event runs now until September 5th and all items are 10L for the duration of the event.

Walking on Sunshine

It may be 6pm PST, but it is Sunny Side Up at the Wash. That’s right, the Sunny Side Up Cart Sale opened this morning at the Wash and you are not going to want to miss it! The normally citified sim has been turned into a gorgeous beach and our merchants have filled the streets with summery delights to tease and tantalize. As with all the Cart Sale events, items are priced at a low, low 10L, although for this round, the merchants have the option of setting out a special little something for 50L.

Kick off your shoes and come feel the sand between your toes as you take a stroll on the Sunny Side (Up) here at the Wash over the next 2 weeks. Don’t forget your sunscreen!

Cart Sale is open!

Standard

Ten years of Cart Sale goodness deserves a party! Come on down to the Wash and help us celebrate the 10th Anniversary of the Cart Sale from now until November 1st. The sim has had an overhaul, there are all kinds of new shops to explore, the streets are lined with kiosks offering up some amazing items, there is a special gacha set up in the all-new Wash Laundromat, and there presents abound for our lovely shoppers.

The Cart Sale events hold a special place in my heart. I can remember my excitement at getting accepted into my first Cart Sale back in 2010 – this was the first real “event” I tried my hand at and I was both thrilled and completely intimidated when my store was accepted. I never expected a couple years down the road that I would be joining the Cart Sale as their official blogger. And now, 7 years later, I am still here, I still love blogging this event, and I feel most fortunate to be able to share in the celebration as the Cart Sale turns 10 years old.

The kiosks are lining the streets, with most items at 10L and a few special things priced at 50L (which is still a bargain!). There are pale green gift boxes on most of the kiosks as well, each packed with a free gift from the designers to you as a thank you for supporting the event for so long. Also, as a special treat, one corner of the sim is now home to The Wash Laundromat – each washer is a gacha and our designers have come up with some amazing things to tempt you to try your luck.

If that is not enough to satiate your inner shopping beast, there is also a fun yard-sale area with all kinds of gacha resale items – no telling what treasures you may stumble across there! And finally, when you have shopped until you are ready to drop, there is a party pavilion beside the Laundromat, with places to sit and socialize, grab a sweet treat from one of the dessert tables, or share your own memories of the Cart Sale’s early days with your friends.
