I was talking earlier about the fun that is shopping. Sometimes it is fast paced, you find a new store, or visit one you know you love already and the right click buy is faster than gunfire.
Then there are those days you really get to enjoy a store, looking at it not only for it’s creations, but it’s whole aesthetics. Quirky little charms, and a real feeling that you are in the space of someone that wants to share with you the whole experience of their passion.
Unfortunatly though, due to prim limits and expense, you cannot always add or do what you wish you could. The quirk or little parts of yourself cost extra, and sometimes – and especially with newer stores – that can cost more than you have to bargain with.
Recently I went to look at some skyboxes with Whimsy, it was actually before the new year lol, so not so recent recent. There was one in particular that I loved, not just for the design, but because the creator put a bit of her own heart in the build.
It was a poem that the builder had taken and rewritten onto the texture of one wall, the house of course came with a version without. But this kind of touch completely made the house a home.
I think stores should look like stores, I am not saying run out and redo your whole shop in personal house like looks – eeks at livingroom wallpaper walls in a store – but add a splash of you to it. Some of you may remember MAD Magazines. I was comic mental as a kid…and would totally spend hours now reading them too if I had the same access to them I did then.
