I am a house hoarder. Houses and skyboxes are what I waste my Lindens on (as well as plants, gardens, furniture etc) so I maybe a Cheap B* when it comes to clothes but it means I have the money to add to my hoard.
Normally I wait for events such as The Arcade or FLF(Fifty Linden Friday) or Collab88 where you can find amazing bargains esp from shops such as Trompe Loeil but I decided to check out the main shop to see if there are any gifties and there wasn’t but it wasn’t such a loss in the end esp if you’re willing to spend a few Lindens.
First is this Gacha win.
This is an old Gacha from a previous event but it’s now outside the main shop with some other Gachas and if you’ve never seen it before or forgot about it and need a small and yet perfectly formed home for ONLY 25Lds you cannot beat this. There is also a model rezzed out next to the Gacha as well so you can check it out.
A “Shotgun” shack is usually a small single room and the reason it’s called “shotgun” is if I remember correctly you can shoot a gun through one door and it goes right through and out the back door.
Inside the main shop there aren’t any Freebies for Group VIP Members, or at least I didn’t see them. What there are is some discounted items, 2 builds and 2 items of furniture and it was this sky house that was the “Woah” for me.
You get 3 rooms in total all large and open, each has a fireplace and windows etc if I remember correctly 2 are identical and the 3rd is slightly different which just breaks up the monotony if there is any because these pictures were taken in my sim setting so you can see the texturing and details which go to make a classy design.
Big spacious rooms with lots of detailed windows and even a window type nook.
And if you join the Free VIP Group and this amazing skybox is just half priced at 250Lds.
As you can see outside is a snowy dark wintery scene but don’t worry as you get 2 versions, the skybox with or without the surround and a surround on its own. A couple of extra’s is also blazing log fires for the fireplaces or a row of lit candles.
Like the Shotgun Shack there is a demo out for this build as well, above the desk in the entrance is the TPs so go to the “old builds” and you will be able to rezz yourself a demo for a good look at but don’t buy it from the rezzer, TP back to the main shop and this as well as the other Group Discounted items are on the wall behind the reception desk.
PS Can’t remember the exact primmage but it was under 50 for the shack and without the backdrop just under 100 for the sky box and with the back drop just over 100.
PPS I’m hoping the LMs take you near to the marks but I have a feeling the LM is preset by the sim and you will have to look around to find the main shop but it’s really easy.
