La Boheme – Valentine’s Dollarbie Face Paint!

LB Facepaint Ad Whole Lotta Love

In the spirit of V-day and amore in the air, I made this cute cheek face paint for the Vintage Valentine Hunt.  Find the red rose in my store and get this for a mere $1, or, if reeeeally lazy, the red rose at the event sign offers the same item for $25. The object is super easy to find, so I suggest going on the hunt.  The “Whole Lotta Love” face paint is tintable with three opacity levels and a ghost impression, as well.

 

PS
Unrelated, I am having issues with Flickr and cannot connect to it.  So for now, I hope those wayward peeps on Flickr find their way to my blog because I can’t post item previews until my issues with FLickr are resolved.

La Boheme’s 2015 Holiday Nails + Giveaway!

La Boheme $10 Holiday Nails + Giveaway

Essentially, who wants to win the *entire* OMNI nail collection from La Boheme?  We’ve finished all conversions and now each OMNI set contains appliers for Slink, Omega and Maitreya.  There are 457 of them, and to celebrate all the hard work which went into them and the end of the conversion, we’d like to gift the entire horde to one lucky person on Christmas day!

How it works: A special billboard with the above image is set up in the shop, anyone can buy the 2015 Christmas Star holiday nail applier set for only $10. As a thank you from La Boheme to all of our patronage, purchase of these nails automatically enters you into the drawing on December 25th. There’s nothing you have to do but enjoy your holiday nails!  The grand prize is copy/no transfer permissions, so there is no monetary value to be had in this drawing.  Anyone can join, but if you want multiple entries to better your chances, the only way to get that is by purchasing the holiday nail set again (sorry, due to limitations and legality in SL, I could not offer this giveaway a different way).

Good luck, and enjoy the holiday season. <3

On Freebies, Dollarbies and Mooching/Scamming

I’ve been a merchant since my second week of SL back in May 2004.  I have always ensured my items are affordable and never over priced – this is an ethical choice I have upheld for over eleven years now.   I have always offered store gifts, freebies, hunt items, sales and the likes for as long as I can recall.  I help out sponsoring events catering to causes and do my best to be a good little merchant friendly to their customer base.  I often give personal gifts here and there, as well, on a one-on-one basis with my customers.
