New Store, New Shoes

So I have a brand new store.. and I have 24 brand new pairs of shoes! Two pairs are in my Lucky Chair ONLY.. so you gotta catch your letter to get them..
These are the Lucky Chair specials

Then I made some Clear wedges! WOO!

And THEN I made some Cork wedges with big ankle straps and a bow

THEN I played around with some animal prints and made some cute pumps with a sassy strap and button

finally I made some snazzy nightlife type heels with BIG satin strap and gold or silver accents

ALL of these shoes, except the Lucky Chair Specials are only $95L a pair and transfer only.. Sized for 0 women's feet..
They are in the front of my new store on Thistledown sim, near Secluded Cove Boardwalk..

So we had our first semi snow here in RL.. And I felt it was time to show off one of my fav builds

My winter snowing trees..

Sculptied trees with snowing particles.. on a little snow covered hill and built in snow angel anim and effect!

They come in two sizes.. 15m and 30m of snow particle goodness..

you can see the 15m one in use here

and they are available for purchase here

They are copy only.. so have fun rezzing them all over your land.. :} Enjoy the snow!

Ok... do you think you have what it takes to run a mall? Do you know the names of every famous designer on the grid? Would you like to work with a few dozen of them? Are you responsible, polite, well organized, and fun? Have I got a job for you!

Right now I'm running the Secluded Cove Boardwalk.. this is almost a full time job! I'm also trying to run my own store.. and I work in RL.. soo yeah.. time is short for me..

I need someone to help me run the Secluded Cove. Just keep track of the rents paid, and plan some events. I can do the advert making.. I just need someone to take over the planning and such.

If you are a designer and would like to do this, I can offer you free rent on the boardwalk. You'd be in league with some of the BIG names.

If you're just a fabulous fashionista, we can talk about a $L salary.

The mall is in the process of expanding, right now I have 30 vendor spots full and I'm looking to add a bunch more.. Here is what I need from you

A notecard with the following info

RL time zone
Why you want to do this
What you want out of it
One idea for an event
any references you have

I'd like to have you in place before the new expansion opens in Dec.

Send those notecards! This is a great opportunity!

The Last Days

Aah LL, thank you.. thank you for ripping my heart out of my chest.. Unusual Isle was my baby.. one of the things I wanted from almost day one of my Second Life.. a sim.. for my store.. See back in the day.. only the most popular stores had their own sims.. Simone had one..

Back in June.. when Openspaces were finally cheap enough... I decided to get myself a b-day present.. A sim.. named after my store.. Unusual Isle popped onto the grid, like 20 minutes after I paid Neural the $250USD set up fee. I squeeed like I'd never squeed before. Within a WEEK I had my store up and running and a little street with a little bridge and my old lighthouse... I built a few little buildings to share my little street and rented them out to friends and other designers I knew.

The economy tanked.. no one was buying, no matter how many pairs of shoes I made.. Still I had a nice little nest egg in my L balance, so I could offset the tier fee.. Then LL pulls the rug out from under me... $125!!!

A friend offered me a good deal on my sim... So.. Nov 14th, Unusual Isle will be closed.. and She's So Unusual Shoes will close for a week for moving.. The new store is built.. I have a few new pairs of shoes to finish to make the new store opening. Some older shoes are being semi retired.. they will be available in a vending machine that pops a random pair out for $10L.

I'll post a SLURL to the new store soon.. along with some pics of the new shoes..

Go visit Unusual Isle one last time... go up to the top of the light house and look down apon my baby. Go sit and talk with friends around the bonfire on the beach, just watch for the Octopus..
Visit some of the other people who shared my space.. Autumn, Bev, Skinkie.. all of you.. I will miss you!
