The long weekend is just about over, but we’re squeezing in one more look at the Retro Swap Meet going on at The Wash sim before its back to the normal work week. We’ve been showcasing some of the designers since the event kicked off on May 23rd and from what we’ve seen so far, the designers have done a truly amazing job of creating items that have a definite flair for the past.
The Strawberry Box always comes up with pretty, creative items and has one of those stores you just enjoy wandering through to see what’s new. For the Retro Swap Meet, they came up with some pretty cool home furnishing pieces that would be a lot of fun to use in creating a whole look to a room or as accent pieces mixed in with things you have already.
There has been a ton of great jewelry/accessory items showcased so far, and these bits from Phoebe Piercings & More are great examples of those finishing touches that help pull a look together. Simple, classic design with a pop of color makes these pieces a great deal.
The Sacred Flame Flower Boutique is another old favorite of ours who never fails to delight with the designs and themed items they come up with. The collection of vintage wall art pieces is just beautiful and the furnishings have a touch of whimsy to them that make them great conversation pieces.
Finally tonight we have a peek at some lovely shoes with matching hair bows from Sexy Bish. The style is classic and the colors are bright. Best of all, all the shoes have with or without the bow options!
Remember, the Retro Swap Meet runs until June 6th, so be sure to get yourself out to the Wash and take a look around – there are TONS of great items just waiting to be discovered.
I had some technical difficulties in getting the pictures uploaded yesterday, but seems like the problem is all fixed today. Gotta love the internet sometimes. =)
Cart Sale is going strong and I hear the sim has been full up a few times in the last couple days. Remember – if you can’t get in, keep trying! There is a 40 person limit on the sim, so it might take a few minutes to get in, but it is definitely worth the effort!
Lois Allen has a beautiful collection of soft, feminine dresses for their Cart this time around. The ivory “Fresh Floral” was my favorite from the dresses this time around, but they are all gorgeously textured and detailed and at 10L each, a great way to spruce up your spring wardrobe.
I loved the pottery sets from Tranquility Way Station – the photos really don’t do the colors justice. These would be gorgeous pieces to have in your home or personal space in SL.
Allusions has some pretty nice pieces for sale at their cart. Their men’s jeans are really great and the teal lace shrug is just gorgeous. Most of their items come as separates and the classical styling will lend itself to mix ‘n matching with a lot of different styles.
Unique Clothing has put together some really interesting outfits, several of which even include shoes! The boots in the Megan outfit are beautiful and the short cocktail dresses are really too good to pass up.
The Strawberry Box makes all kinds of cute, well-textured, comfortable home furnishing items and their Cart Sale items are fantastic examples of what they offer in their main store. These pieces would look beautiful in a variety of settings. The preserves cabinet was especially cute, with the little labeled jars inside.
