We’ve got another peek at the Retro Swap Meet going on at The Wash sim for you this evening! This is a 2-week event, with the retro theme spanning the 1920s to the 1980s. The designers have come up with some amazing goodies and everything is 10L or under, so it’s a terrific chance to score some great buys.
Tonight we are taking a look at one of my personal favorites, Battle Fairy. Every event I blog that they take part in, I am like a kid on Christmas morning when I unpack their box because shoes are my personal crack and they come up with amazing designs every time. The Daisy Wedge boots are fantastic and the shirts/pants definitely have a flower-power vibe to them. Plus, who can resist a pretty jewel-toned hookah to complete any ode to the Summer of Love?
We’ve also got some beautiful Victorian style furniture from Clutter. In addition to the well-crafted furnishings, they are also offering textures you can use on your own creations.
Malfean Visions has an truly gorgeous collection of “Don’t Step On My…” suede boots in a range of deep shades from purple to black and of course blue. If Elvis wore heels, he’d have them all! =)
Rounding out our selection tonight, we visited Tranquility Way Station. They have Garden Floral pieces in a jaunty shade of yellow or a soothing shade of blue to mix and match in creating your perfect patio getaway.
We have lots more to show over the next few days, so keep your eyes peeled for upcoming posts. Remember, you only have 2 weeks to get in on these deals, so be sure to visit the Retro Swap Meet!
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.
