More party pretties at the Cart Sale!

Standard

Short and sweet – Its the 10th Anniversary of the Cart Sales and we are having a huge blowout event to celebrate! Kiosks full of 10 and 50L items, gachas under 50L a pull, and gifts galore for our shoppers. Here is another look at some of the amazing things available during this round. I’ve been showcasing from the event over the last couple days and will continue to do so until my blogger bag runs dry, so be sure to keep checking back here on the blog for more goodies.  The designers have been amazingly generous in sending stuff in, so I am having a ball working through all the boxes and getting them ready to share.

We are seeing an amazing number of shoppers on the sim, especially during peak SL times, so remember to be kind to each other and keep your complexity low while you are shopping. Nothing is more frustrating than not being able to move at an event. If cam shopping is more your style, there is a pretty little party pavilion area with all kinds of seating beside the gacha Laundromat (follow the neon green arrows on the street) where you can get comfortable and reduce your chance of being mowed down by other shoppers.

The Cart Sale runs until November 1st, so there is plenty of time to come on over and check out all the great celebration stuff we have going on!

We’re having a blast at the Cart Sale!

Standard

Good afternoon, Cart Sale fans! It’s a beautiful, sunny day here at the Wash and we have a fabulous party going on all month to celebrate our 10th Anniversary. You know all about the awesome deals you can find on the designer kiosks during this event, and by now I am sure you have heard about the gifts and the special gacha laundromat Ms. Grace put in for the event – but did you hear that the sim underwent a revamp as well?

There is a fresh feel to the sim with the addition of new stores, some new landscaping, and a few special celebration event touches. The Treasure Trove yard sale has table after table of gacha resale items to check out – you never know what you might find and the available items are updated frequently. If all the shopping, gacha-ing and exploring is too much, we have a lovely party pavilion set up near the laundromat, where you can kick back and cam-shop or just hang out with friends.

The real star of the Cart Sale is, of course, all the wonderful things the designers have created to help celebrate this special round. I’ve got another peek below at some of the items you can find during the event. Keep in mind – while many things will be available in the stores after the event, there is always the occasional exclusive or two that you can only get before it ends.

10 Years of Great Deals at the Cart Sale!

Standard

We’re still in the early days of celebration, and I just can’t help it – I have too many fantastic things to share to pace myself with posts. So here is another look at some of what you can find at this round of the Cart sale at the Wash.

This is our first time adding gachas to the Cart Sale, and while we are still ironing out a few bumps, I have been absolutely thrilled to see the things the designers have created. I don’t know if they will become a regular part of the Cart Sales, so be sure to take advantage while we have them and try your luck.

There is a really nice mix of every-day items as well as holiday themed things to be found on the carts as well. I love Halloween but you can only wear a pumpkin sweater so much in a year so it’s a lot of fun being able to indulge a bit in things for this time of year AND find things I can use year round. From filling your closet to decorating your haunted house, there is a little bit of everything in a gorgeous palette of fall colors available at the Cart sale.

Also, since its not a celebration without party favors – don’t miss out on the plethora of lovely gifts our designers have set out. Many of our designers have been with us for round after round and this is their way to say thank you to you, our faithful shoppers. You guys are there haunting the sim early to sneak a shot at the deals before we officially open, you are there filling the sim day after day during the event, and you are the ones ninja-ing around the streets of the sim in the couple days post-event before we get it cleaned up – and we love you for it! Thank you from all of us at the Cart Sale for 10 years of support – we hope you will be with us for another 10 years.

Time for another peek at the treasures waiting for you at the 10th Anniversary round of the Cart Sale, hosted by The Wash. For the next 3 weeks, we are whooping it up with sales, sales and more sales. We’ve got around 70 or so designers participating and they have gone all out to make this an especially memorable round of the Cart Sale. I was especially tickled at all the cute (and spooky!) Halloween goodies they included. This is the perfect time to get those last finishing holiday touches before the 31st without spending a fortune.

I had mentioned in a previous post that the sim was super busy yesterday and hit capacity a few times. Nothing is worse than getting to an event and not being able to move (or shop!) because of the lag, especially when its so crowded. Do yourself and your fellow shoppers a favor and leave your heavily scripted and/or high complexity stuff at home.

There is linked info below to a list of merchants for this round, and we will be filling in the direct Slurls to their individual carts as we check them off the list. This is shaping up to be an incredible round and I can’t wait to see you there!

October 2017 Cart Sale – 10th Anniversary Round

Standard

The 10th Anniversary round of the Cart Sale has started off with a bang! The sim was hopping all day yesterday and even hit full capacity a few times. I’m not surprised at all, given the fantabulous array of things we have in store for our shoppers during this round.

Kiosks, gachas, yardsales and even free gifts – it’s guaranteed you are not going to walk away empty handed as we celebrate our 10th year of bringing SL some of the best shopping values on the grid. The usual sale items are there for 10L a pop, with a few specials thrown in at 50L as well. For the first time ever, we’ve added a :aundromat full of gacha machines (50L max pull price) – just watch the road as you are exploring the event, and follow the neon arrows embedded in the pavement that will take you right to them. The Treasure Trove yardsale is crammed with all kinds of gacha resale items as well and the stock on the tables there changes frequently, so there is no telling what you might find if you poke around a bit. Additionally, keep an eye out for the cute little pale green giftboxes on the kiosks (and I believe there might be one or two in the laundromat) – these are free gifts from the merchants, to thank you all for your support for the Cart Sale over the years.

I have a crazy amount of stuff to share here on the blog this round, so I am going to keep the written bits of the posts short and sweet – bottom line, if you only shop one Cart Sale this year, THIS is the one you don’t want to miss.

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.

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!
