Party With Zinnias @ Shop & Hop

Zinnias @ SL18B Shop & Hop 1

I’ve got this super Fiesta party set to share with you from Zinnias – So much for so little land impact! The gazebo structure is just 5Li, everything else is between 3-5 Li, even those huge potted fiesta flowers!! Shabby chic at its finest with some amazing poses built into the bench and chairs. Each item can be bought individually – so pick and choose what you want.

Zinnias @ Shop & Hop DISCOUNTED!

I do so love the fabrics used on the seating, the wood looks a little worn as if I’ve been using it all summer long. There are also discounts to be had ! From furniture to gacha there are big discounts – of course I had a little flutter on the gacha machines ❤ Don’t forget to pick up your free gift for SL18B – Thanks Zinnia ❤

Small items of joy $20L !

Occasionally I will browse the full perm stores, they really are interesting and you can pick up some quality pieces. They can cost a little more than buying as copy & modify as you get all the permissions. Just adhere to the sellers rules ! EBD design is one store where you walk in and instantly recognise items used in a lot of designers creations – but today I was browsing in the “buyers” store, a little room off to the side. I spotted a gacha machine for these sweet collectors tea cups – just $20L a pop – who was I to refuse ! 1Li each they will brighten a shelf, table or counter – I didn’t get the rare but I was super pleased with the selection I received and no doubles yay!

The Village Pond

It cant have escaped your attention that I am a massive fan of Dench Designs – especially if you’ve ever visited our home sim Dreamworks. Amanda Dench is from the UK and I think because of this I just somehow “connect” with her style. Its hard to find new items that I dont already own – but thankfully Amanda’s output means I usually find something I haven’t bought yet ! I was mooching yesterday on the look out for something to complete the vista of my new cottage garden. I just knew Id find something there that would fit right in. Wasn’t disappointed when I spied this “Village pond” – its just SO right for my new home! Its a whole focal point in one – the pond, the edging plants, the bench with its built in female, males and couples poses. If you click on the tree you get a menu for more items to add to the scene. I loved the swimming duck that quacks ! There are geese, a pheasant, fish and more ! Here I am sat enjoying my afternoon with a cuppa tea ❤ You’ll find this outside by the group gift (free to join group and a fantastic gift) $120L , Li depends on what you rez.

The Magical one to ten prim house !

I saw this on the market place and was curious enough to buy it. At $99L its not overly expensive- so kerching it was in my shopping basket.

I am not sure how the 1Li house was achieved as its a good build, with a working door and some pretty details. Originally it seems this was built as a sim filler or for purely decorative purposes BUT – as people liked it enough to want to live in it – the builder (MeshPromo) also gives a version with some added features which takes the build to 10Li. I rezzed the 10Li version and was impressed! Id definately change the 4Li curtains as I have some of my own that are just 4Li, Id also change out the fireplace. While the fire is nice, at 2Li I’ve have nicer ones for 1Li – I’m such a prim miser ! This version also comes with a Hud that gives you four textures for seven parts of the house from the roof to the walls and more – brilliant ! Several colours of the build are included in the box.

Take a look at it on the market place and read more about it.

I went, I saw, I spent.(Freebie).

Redeux is open for business and for once no freebies, I do think there may be one or two dotted about but it was a shocker as of course, this event is well known for the freebies. TBH I’ve probably not unpacked the freebies not just from the last event but the event before that and even longer ago lol.

I don’t mind, freebies are wonderful but so are the sales at this event.

But of course, I do have a freebie to show you as one of the stalls at the Redeux event is a shop called “Beyond The Mist” which is new to me so of course once I’d finished checking everything out at Redeux then I TPed over.

There are 3 gift boxes randomly place around this small shop, there may be more but I only spotted 3 and the chains I’m wearing are the keepers for me.  Just 2 fits, mine and yours lol.

Once you’ve grabbed the freebie use the TP, boards around the fountain, as there are some impressive builds again in keeping with the RP theme but I particularly liked the Skybox Dungeon and if that was my kink I’d buy it but since I’d only use it as a backdrop I resisted.

PS.  If you love Belle Epoque then this shop always has offers out at Redeux, the 75Ld dress was just so tempting it hurt to TP away but I did console myself with the Belle Epoque Gacha prizes as that is only 25Lds a try.

Dollarbie and NOT Dollarbie.

One of our readers/friends gave me a heads up about a shop called Marinabay(sic) because even though she knew the very beachy theme wasn’t something I aim for she also knows that I love new and unusual designs and this shop is deffo that….and a bag of (fish and) chips.

The group costs 1Ld and for that, you get this fully stocked ice cream stall nom nom nom and if you check the group notices there is also another gift for you in there of a simple but very pretty Lei, which is a Hawaiian necklace(?) made up of flowers.

This ice cream stall is packed with wearable food and drink that get sent to you and yes ok the jerky slug it back drinking motion is a bit old school this whole stall is only 3 prims! Trust me I had to click on it a couple of times just to check it.  It’s also editable and I stripped it down to the basic chassie thing but I couldn’t detach the ice cream sign from it.  Doesn’t matter as I sometimes get more fun ripping something apart.

So for me, this isn’t something we will not use as it simply won’t fit in with our sim decor but at only 3 prims, and a lot of what I saw in this shop is extremely reasonably primmed, an excellent scene stuffer

Not free, and I can’t remember the cost BUT if we did have a beach themed sim I’d SNAP this up.

It’s not a massive shop but big enough to have everything from homes to crashed boats etc
