I was off like a rocket when I spotted this from Muniick ! A retro telephone table plus a phone. Both items have colour change and all really fabbo aged and faded tones – 4Li for the table, 2Li for the phone – and just $25L – what a steal.
I decided to take a quick snap of the house at Mina’s main shop which I frequently use as a backdrop.
I’d love to own this house and since I don’t I get the second best thing and I use it as a backdrop. Obviously, no one gets rezzing rights, not even me, but the well decorated inside and landscaped outside seem to be open for all to use. Add to that a super flattering windlight setting and you have a great place for some “point and click” pics.
These other pictures were also taken on the Mina sim but nearer to the shop, I just thought this stylish promenade made a better backdrop for this whole look.
The hat is obviously not the Dollarbie although I’m sure that this hair/hat set it a gift for Noobs, ie new residents to SL under 30 days. I could be wrong but if you know someone new(ish) then send them to Mina’s. Also, I never mention it often enough but inside of Mina’s are Gacha’s and some of my fav hairs are Gacha prizes. So a brilliant way for someone on a budget to get quality hair for not an unreasonable price, I think they’re 75Ld a try.
OK enough waffle and now for a surprising win with this Dollarbie dress.
I picked up a few Dollarbies from the “Higgle” marketplace shop and even though I suspected most would end up in the trash I had my fingers crossed for this one and it worked. A classic SL design with that bold retro pattern really does stand out.
This dress does come with lots of mesh bod fits and a different hat, belt, necklace and sunglasses which emm..nope. Tart it up with your own stuff as I can see this with a big chunky necklace or earrings and an oversized bag.
I’d have liked to have an item of clothing to show you but my wandering of SL hasn’t brought me to any at least this Free sign give me a good excuse to remind you, homeowners, to visit a shop called Silence.
This shop has been around for a couple of years now and although there isn’t much going on upstairs-downstairs there is plenty going on to tempt you. Some retro furniture etc but it’s the beds which I think are most standouts in the shop.
Anyhow it won’t take you long to check this shop out and hopefully, my next post will be clothing.
UPDATE: Damn n blast. So I did take the LM from outside of the Silence shop however the LM for this shopping sim is preset which is normally not an issue but since a large chunk of this sim is under construction you basically end up buried deep in a load of mesh n prims. If you, like me, keep your mini-map open then you will see the red circle of where you should be and you can batter and barge you way there…or just wait till they have finished doing what they’re doing and get it at a later date.
Finally found THE coat! Ive been searching and searching for something to catch my eye et voila – here it is. Classic trench-coat with a twist. Gawd I am really SO pleased. I went back to Pixel Box (see my last post) as it seemed such an interesting kinda store. Goth / retro/Victorian/modern all sorts really. Then I spotted this…*happy sigh*, it is unbelievably only $50L , seriously ! Boat load of fits in the box, I’m wearing a Maitreya body and its perfect.
The Hud is interesting, lots of options for colours and styles. Four types of buttons, eight colours to play with between the four styles. Plus you can tint to get a really personal look.
Just to show you another style from the Hud – a two-tone version – love it ! The store is quite large and two floors, youll find lots to see.
Oh I adore this ! Vintage style onesie as we here in the UK might call it. This will be at the December round of Uber from Neve. Heaps and heaps of patterns and colours to choose from. You can opt for the slippers off or on, the back “butt cover” open or closed – I dont think Im ever going to take this off ! I was torn between the baby pink and this traditional red plaid – totally lushhhhh – thanks Neve team ❤
It took me forever to work it out that I picked this little number up from the Marketplace and not inworld.
How retro is that pattern? I’m just showing you the dress and not the mid height shoes which have the same texturing. I wanted to do a little bit of a close up so you can see that little sheer panel on the front of the dress.
This is the Dollarbie but there is the 99Ld option which comes with the shoes, hat and a 10 patterned hud which I think a lot of people will really like so buy the Dollarbie to check the quality and then treat yourself to the super-bargain priced on.
Since I’m now grabbing the Marketplace Link I might just grab myself a BIG cup of coffee, put Judge Judy on TV and have a scroll through the marketplace and see what else I can find.
PS. Fits are on the MP details.

This was sent as a Subscribers gift from a shop I do know well called “% Percent” because not only do I have a few previous sub gifts but I actually spent Lindens in this shop, shocking I know.
First the freebie then I will rabbit on about the shop. It’s the simple 3 candle center piece. A decent size, it’s on a small table, I was too busy playing with the menu to check if you can mod to make it smaller or not. The menu gives you a lot of options such as colour, density, volume etc and obviously I chose the green. I took this picture just in my sim setting and you can see how much glow it gives off. I LOVE things that add atmosphere to your home and candlelight is a great way of adding a layer of colour to your living space. I didn’t take a picture but I zoomed right out and this candle sets off my house perfectly.
Over the years I’ve gotten some really nice sub gifts from this shop and as I’ve said I’ve also bought from this shop. The range of furniture and decor is heavily retro-influenced so most of it wouldn’t fit into a lot of peoples homes unless of course, that is your style, but so many of the pieces are just classic and unique. Before I logged off I had a look around and spotted the pieces I already own but damn there is a couple of items I’m contemplating on returning to buy when I log back in.
PS. You can buy this candle set but the red version for only 50Ld or if you’re slightly CRAZY and don’t want to slap the sub-board then you can buy this colour for 50Lds as well..no just slap the sub-trust me you won’t regret it.
