The Artist Shed @ FABLE

Once upon a time in the virtual land of Second Life there was computer-generated store that sold home décor items and silly things like huggable taco chips.

One lagless day the store had the occasion to participate in an event called FABLE, which was all about fairies, goblins; knights in shining armor…you get my point.

Anyway, it was a day or two before the affair and The Artist Shed could not wait to share all of the things it had on display in a tiny cabin nestled somewhere on the FABLE event site.

But when to show these items off? When was the optimal time in which to let the merchandise be seen in all its glorious splenditude?

The Artist Shed could wait no longer “Now it cried!” (If a computer-generated store could speak) and so it unveiled a dark and small photo showing (if you could call it that) the items that were available for purchase should you wish to attend the event.

The Artist Shed was proud of its achievements. Creating a bunch of royal goodies for home or castle was no small feat.

Alas…the event doesn’t start until August 6th another virtual store reminded The Artist Shed, this broke computer-generated stores reverie…reality…returning…

THE END

Yep…I’m a big nerdy geek with a big dorky grin.

Anyhoo, stop by FABLE {Once Upon a Time} if you’d like to grab any of the goodies The Artist Shed or the pleothora of other shops has to offer.

The event runs from August 6th to August 27th.

If you see me walking around, feel free to point and *cough* while simultaneously saying *nerd*.

August Hunt

This is certainly not your grandmother’s hunt…

The Artist Shed is participating in a new hunt during the month of August The Theater of Horrors – Carnival of Souls Hunt. This terrifying hunt  runs from August 1st to 31st and will be offering only the most disturbingly scary L$1 gifts.

Here is what The Artist Shed has for you:

TOH Carnival of Souls Hunt Gift - The Artist Shed

The Sideshow Sidetable would be a creepy addition to a haunted house, crypt or possibly right next to the bed sitting vigilant, warning people trying to get you to bump pixels with them…that no means no.

You can grab more details on the hunt by visiting the Purple Puffin Productions website.

Happy Hunting!

Cruel Summer

The Artist Shed will be at the Cruel Summer Cart Sale + Hunt from July 1st to 31st with a cart full of all new items, plus a hunt gift and a freebie (if you can find it).

Along with 35 other merchants The Artist Shed is waging a war on the sticky summer heat by having you ramble around in the desert looking for L$2 cacti, L$10 and theme items. Why? Because we’re oh so cruel…

Cruel Summer Hunt Gift - The Artist Shed

This is the gift you’ll get if you can keep your senses sharp and the sweat out of your eyes. The Saguaro Chair has a unisexy pose and can be yours for the tiny sum of L$2, while the hunt is on.

If you’d prefer to simply ignore the cacti and just shop, here’s a bit of a preview of what’s on The Artist Shed cart.

Cruel Summer Hunt Gift - I Heart the Cart

Last but not least another L$2 hunt gift, this time from I Heart the Cart. Something to cool you off after all the hard work.

Visit the Cruel Summer Cart Sale + Hunt from July 1st to 31st and don’t forget your sunscreen!

July Hunts

I know it’s kind of early to be sharing the July hunt gifts but I thought, what the heck…why not.

The Artist Shed is participating in two hunts during the month of July, The Madly Untamed Keep it Poppin’ Hunt which runs from July 1st to July 31st and the Evil Bunny Beached Bunny 6 Hunt which runs from July 3rd to July 31st.

Both hunts are L$1 hunts and for both I’ve made planters…

The theme of the Keep it Poppin’ Hunt is celebration, so I figured why not celebrate coming in second? Everyone wants to be first but it takes a special person to really make 2nd place believable.

So, the Celebrate 2nd Place planters where born:

The Artist Shed @ Jersey Shore

I wasn’t sure I would be able to get ready for the Jersey Shore beach BLING summer carnival due to some pesky real world issues but with the encouragement of the organizer I got a few items together before the deadline.

This beachy fun event runs from June 4th to June 25th and features many, many vendors with lot’s of summertime goodies for you all, including a ton of gacha machines.

I would have loved to have been able to make more for the event but here’s a little preview of what you can find at my cart.

Jersey Shore Preview

Stop by the Jersery Shore event and take a ride on the roller coaster, visit the shops and play the gacha machines until your inventory is bursting with awesomeness!

Spring Freshness

Alright, so in my last post I mentioned two more events coming up mid-March and while the enMESHed into Spring hunt seems to have been canceled the Spring Freshness sale @The Wash is happening as planned and runs from March 16th to March 30th.

The sale boasts several (and by several I mean too many to count) displays filled with L$10 items. L$10 items as far as the eye can see…many, many L$10 items and the occasional L$50 item, as everyone participating is allowed one per display.

Here’s a little peek at what The Artist Shed has to offer:

The Wash Sale

All brand new and all fresh for spring!

Stop by The Spring Freshness Sale @The Wash to see these items as well as all the other fantastic bargains.

FYI – The Artist Shed display is the one with the swirling pile of trash in front of it…haha.
