ART EXHIBIT AT SERENITY MYST RETREAT
Issis Ceriano
http://slurl.com/secondlife/Budantsev/167/160/39

Today artist Kayshla Aristocrat set up some of her artwork at my community site of Serenity Myst Writers and Artists Retreat.  Her art is for sale along with other creations from Anarta, Colorado, Exodus and Leighana.

INANNA NEEDS YOUR VOTE
Inanna Barrowstone
http://slurl.com/secondlife/Gemella/197/109/30

“With the help of Issis I entered a photo in the Shabby Chic 2010 photo contest.  Now all I need are  votes. So here in the spirit of shameless self-promotion I am asking my friends to stop by the link below and vote for the picture of Inanna on the Myst Island Ship.”

Head over to Shabby Chic and vote for Inanna (she is entrant #14)! You may cast a total of two votes – one on each voting machine and your vote is final (we only saw one voting machine so it is really one vote per person). Voting began May 9 and ends May 15 in the AM. Let’s help Inanna win her outfits! *As of yesterday, Inanna was in the lead with 26 votes thanks to a little help from her friends! Next highest voting was for contestant #3 at 22 votes. If you haven’t been by to vote, please try to stop in and do so. The pictures and voting board are on the right hand side of the porch on the largest building.

PURGAL ADGE MARKETS – MARKET STALLS FOR RENT
SkydiverAnarta Fall & SkydiverColorado Calloway

Shorah All.

Do you make things and don’t know where to sell them? Have you ever wanted somewhere to market your goods on the Mainland? Would you like a market stall and pay no rent? I have purchased some land on the mainland and turned it into a market place.  All you have to do is to donate your 512 land allowance, choose a stall and away you go. Each stall carries a 50 prim allowance. If you want a stall, but do not have the land allowance available, then stalls are being rented for 160L per week for 50 prims.

Please contact SkydiverAnarta Fall or SkydiverColorado Calloway for further information.

CLAIREHAVEN ESTATES
Sandi Glas
From the notecard:

Clairehaven Estates was established in 2008 to create an affordable alternative to land ownership.  From the beginning, Veronicaa Ninetails and Sandi Glas have worked hard to provide a stress free place to live and play and relax, all within a libertine community of “family” who live together in peaceful coexistence.  We currently have five regions, and though they are not themed, each has a character all its own.  Land is available in a variety of sizes, and priced modestly to better help everyone develop the home of their dreams.  Contact us, or visit one of our properties today.  The landmarks below will take you to the tier boards for each region, and you can visit a land simply by clicking on the tier box and receiving the LM to that particular parcel or island.

Haven I & Haven IV tier boards: http://slurl.com/secondlife/Haven%20IV/70/180/401

FRANCE 3D HUNT
DMom3K Darwin (yes there is a 3K…..)
May 3 to May 23
From the notecard:

France 3D French Sims and Evenementia are happy to welcome you for their first treasure hunt from May 3rd to 23rd.
The principle is simple: various designers taking part to the event have hidden a quality freebie in their shop. You have to find these gifts in a precise order.

This blog will be of use to your quest, giving you useful clues for your researches, and informing you.

http://france3d.treasure-hunt.over-blog.com/

Here are some things useful to know before starting your quest.

We suggest you to join now France 3D Treasure Hunt group in game. It will be very useful to get info during the game. Sure the enrollment to the group is free.
For that, you have to:
* Click on an event board placed in various shops participating to the hunt and follow instructions in the group.
* Or find the group in the research and join it for free.
* Or send an im to Lalabel Demina, Annah Cham, Iko Aker or Kryss Holmer.

The object to find with the freebie is a simple « plank » with product texture on it. To make a difference with items on sell, it is containing a  « give inventory » script: it’ll give you the free simply by clicking on it. There is no need to buy for L$ 0.  There’s only one “freebie” by shop.  When you’ll get your gift, you’ll receive also the following shop landmark to go to research the new gift.

In each shop, the plank to find is not in a wall or something. She is visible to the naked eye. To not lose yourself in your inventory with your gifts, containers are renamed “F3D Hunt #nn” (#nn is the order number of the shop in the hunt).

To help you in your researches, clues will be given to you on the official blog and in the « France3D Treasure Hunt » group.

Don’t ruin research pleasure, so when you find a gift in a shop, don’t say where it is to other players.

Be patient, and enjoy the game.
It’s just a game!

Treasure hunt will officially begin May 3rd. This day, you’ll find on the blog the name of the first shop and its SLurl.
You’ll also find the list of all shops and their SLurls taking part to the treasure hunt.
Each day, a clue will be given to help you. So keep a watch on the blog.  🙂
We wish you a very good time. 🙂
