Blue Chattel House

blue-chattel-house-400

Blue Chattel House – New from Domicile and the Gentlemen Bastards, this should put a little Caribbean colour into your Second Life. This quaint little blue Chattel House will fit into any 16m x 16m parcel. If you need to save on prims, you can strip away the verandah and its roof (13 prims) without affecting the house. The whole shebang is fully-mod, so if you’re really prim-conscious, a further nine prims can be saved by removing the window frames and bars and re-texturing the window pane with a window texture.

A note to my customers

A note to my customers

I think I’m going to withdraw the free male newbie starter kit from XStreet and the mall. It’s a little… disheartening when your freebie items are pretty much the only things people ‘buy’. :-/

Before Christmas, the store went for nine days with that newbie kit the only thing being taken. Yes, it’s nice to offer something free that helps male newbie avatars out, but it’s also not the greatest of feelings for any content creator (especially one that actually underprices his items because he doesn’t want to over-charge for his work) when they see nothing in their sales list but ‘freebie’, ‘freebie’, ‘freebie’.

My prices are hardly ‘break the bank’ as you’ll see if you take the time to browse this blog, my XStreet account, or even come and visit the mall inworld. But I’m beginning to understand why many content creators are withdrawing freebies. We offer them, not only as free gifts, but also in the hope that people might stick around, check out the rest of our items, like what they see, and maybe spend a few L$. But lately, people just TP in, grab the freebie, then TP right out again within seconds.

No matter how well-priced your items are, how well-made, how well laid-out; you’re never going to turn those freebie-grabbers into customers if they just wait long enough for that freebie to rez, grab it, then run.

Yeah, It’s very, very disheartening.

Copper Brazier

copper-brazier400

Copper brazier – A very simple, 17-prim copper brazier with local lights that give a warm glow. A collaboration between my partner and I (the brazier is mine, the coals are his) this would fit perfectly into any ethnic setting.
