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.

We’re dancing in the streets…

Standard

…as we get our summer vibe on at the Wash!  There are over 65 merchants involved in this round of the Cart Sale Event, and the streets are packed with steals, deals and all kinds of good stuff just waiting for you!  There is no other event in SL that offers this much diversity in stores AND such big savings on stuff to make your SL better.  Whether you are an old hand at SL and just looking for a bargain or if you are new to  SL with not a lot of linden in  your pocket, wanting to spruce up and lose the noobish look – this is the time and this is the place.

The home decor folks have some amazing offerings this round, the clothes horses/jewelry mavens have done their usual fantastic job, and those harder to categorize folks, who provide everything from full perm buildy bits to textures and everything in between have come up with some incredible summer-themed items – all for the insanely low price of 10L for the duration of the event.

This round only lasts 2 weeks, and we are almost halfway through, so if you are planning to come do some serious shopping, better get here soon before its all gone!

Springtalicious Cart Sale is awash in color!

Standard

Its here! Its here! The Wash is back with the fantabulous Springtalicious Cart Sale Event! The sun is shining, the flower are starting to bloom, and The Wash has amazing deals on everything you could possibly need to kick start the warmer weather!

I have been wandering the sim a bit this evening, checking out all the different merchant kiosks and one thing that struck me is how vibrant everything looks this round. There is a riot of color and textures and some really beautiful items available right now – I’m not sure if its just that I was getting so tired of the winter blues, or what, but it is a real treat for the eyes just to window shop the carts. Of course, the best part is that if something catches your eye, its only 10L! (Ok, its maybe 50L, since some of the merchants have special 50L items out…but still, not gonna break the bank.)

The Springtalicious Cart Sale is a limited time event – only 2 weeks this round, from March 29th to April 12th, so be sure to come down and check things out.

Holidays have hit the Wash!

Standard

Even the scroogiest person out there cannot resist the charms of the December Cart Sale Event which opened today at the Wash! We do these Cart Sale events a few times a year, but the December round is always one of the best – not just because we have some amazing designers taking part, but because its a chance for you to not only pick up a little pretty for yourself, but also to get a fabulous gift for that special someone without breaking the bank.

The merchants have all put out items this round that are transferable, so you can come down and take care of those last minute SL gift giving needs in a heartbeat. Everything is 10L and some of it seriously needs to be seen to get the full impact of just how gorgeous these items are. The designers really did a stellar job (and I can say that, having seen what’s in my magical blogger sack of goodies to share over the next few days!) and there is something to please just about anyone on your holiday shopping list.

Stay tuned to this channel for more posts showcasing the best of the December Cart Sale!

Night on the Beach, Anyone?

Standard

I greeted the morning shift in Second Life with the previous post, so here is a shout out to you night time shoppers! Imagine this: The sun is going down, the sky is a blaze of red, orange and pink…you are sitting on a beach with the huge bonfire going…the sweet scent of s’mores competing with the salt air and smoke…the sound of breaking waves and happy people talking and laughing. You and your special someone curled up on a blanket by the fire, it’s heat just enough to take the slight bit of chill out of the air as you enjoy one of summer’s last nights. Sounds nice, right? Indian summer, folks. We can’t promise you the beach, but we can give you all the things you need to set up your own Indian Summer celebration here in SL.

This round of the Indian Summer Cart sale is chock full of everything you could want and more to make this time of year just perfect. From clothing to decor for your home, we have it all covered. Come on down and check us out – and cling just a little longer to your own summer dreams.

Happy Shopping!

10L Madness!

Standard

These days, you can’t even buy a decent cup of coffee for a buck.  That same buck, however, is about 212 lindens…or 21 items from this round of the Bi-Annual Cart Sale.  Is that a deal or what?  Where else can you pretty much gain an entire summer wardrobe AND redecorate your house with a lovely seasonal look for less than a cup of coffee?  Whether you are an avid bargain shopper, a savvy fashionista, or just a plain every day tightwad, we have something to tickle your fancy!

The Bi-Annual Cart Sale event runs from now until July 6th and hosts almost 90 designers for this round.  The designers have outdone themselves with some really fabulous items, so be sure to come down and spend some time checking out all the street carts.  Hope to see you there!

Who needs a spring fling when we have Spring Freshness?

Standard

This is seriously one of my favorite Second Life events for a couple reason. First, I have no shame at all in admitting I am a shopaholic (especially for shoes!) in Second Life and the Cart Sales always have something I absolutely cannot resist buying, either to wear or to put in my house. Second, the merchants for this event always go a fantastic job in creating new and exciting things. With the 10L price tag, you can’t go wrong – especially if its a designer you have never tried before. And third, it’s just a lot of fun. The sim always has stuff going on (aside from the Cart Sale event, there are tons of stores and a gacha resale space and even an amusement park) which makes it a great place to just kick back and wander around for a while.

The “Spring Freshness” Cart Sale runs from now until March 30th, so you have some time to come down and check out the 85+ designers who have kiosks set up along the Wash’s streets. There is lots to see and do, so I hope I see you there!
