A little while ago I bought a chair in a furniture store. I also bought a water wall. But it's the chair that was particularly lovely. Last weekend, when furnishing the new abode, I decided I'd head back to said store to try and pick up some equally lovely stuff. I didn't have an LM so I had to be a bit more devious, I thought, and looked up the creator of the chair and searched her profile for a pick.
And what would you know, I had success. One TP over and I had arrived. Only it wasn't quite as successful as I'd hoped. The furniture store was not quite how I remembered it. In fact there was no furniture for sale at all anywhere.
There definitely wasn't a moonscape last time I was there. The giant floaty robot creatures were new too, I think. And the gaseous atmosphere had replaced kitchen and dining department.
Is it a sign you've been in SL a while when shops you go back to no longer exist?
This story does have a happy ending however, you'll be pleased to hear. I'll come to that though as first there's a doh! moment. Reinvestigation of the creator lady's pick revealed some text about the shop closing. Maybe I should have read that before I TPed, eh? That'll teach me.
The doh! moment also lead to the good news though, so it's not all bad. The pick also mentioned a new outlet store in place of the original full sim store. It's not quite the same but it still has lovely sofas and a really cute little bed. Maybe when I'm feeling a bit richer I'll venture back.
