Bailey's Jumble Sale and Bizarre



Years ago in Second Life, Yard Sales were a popular weekend activity.  As a resident progressed through their game, they would sell off their transferable items cheaply, by re-boxing them and placing them on their land.

The guests would purchase the boxes, then use the 'take' command to place them in their inventory for their own use and pleasure.

It was great fun, terribly time consuming for the person selling the items, but a wonderful Jumble Sale atmosphere or rummaging was had by all.

So imagine how distressed we all were to hear that Madame Bailey (Bailey Saxmundham), who has donkeys years worth of old clothing, was just about to delete all her old glam hairdo's and frocks, and send them off to the great skip in the sky for all time.

We have pleaded with Madame Bailey to hold a church Bizarre at her house next weekend and to box up all her transferable tat for sale.  This is a lot of work for her and she is reluctant to do it unless many people attend.

To show your support, we invite you to contact her and pledge the 10L admission fee into Saxmundham Mansion (5L to the unwaged) next Sunday (UK day time) and come and rummage around her old undies for some great bargains.

Lemonade and Ginger cake will be available on the day.   We'll keep you posted about this event!


Trash or Treasure?



Some new wonderful items have been added to the litter bin located outside Freebie Megastore in http://maps.secondlife.com/secondlife/London%20City/88/204/23
London City.

They include and empty disposable lighter (always handy for when someone you don't like asks for a light).

An uglies paper bag (in case your body looks better than your face) and a wearable TeePee for those nights when you are too drunk to stagger home.

Happy hunting!  and don't forget there are over 100 items to collect, and at random intervals, some cash too!  Just walk in to the litter bin and you will receive your reward!

Oktobefest Hangover



It was a sensational event at Lala's last night for Oktoberfest.  The drinks were flowing, the running buffet was finger-licking good, and Madame Bailey going round on the turntable after a few gins was the highlight of the night.




If you enjoyed Lala's last night, then next Friday is a true spectacular for you as Lala's holds a special Michaelmas Day Event with a full sit-down meal, dinner and a dance!
