La Boheme – Gifts, Sales, Hunts & Events for December 2015

Whew!  I cannot express how nice it is to sit back and relax after months of continual labor for the shop.  Sadly, in down time, I keep catching myself feeling lost because there’s no more nails to convert and that was becoming a regular thing. lol  Like a deer in headlights – what do I do with myself?!

Fear not, there’s still a few things yet to start for December: The Candy Cane Lane Gacha & Shopping Expo begins on the 12th, and also the Wash is having another cart sale beginning on the 18th, and La Boheme’s is right out front our shop (we’re located at the Wash).  Each week a new holiday gift will be under our tree for you, as well as a multitude of other freebies and dollarbies.  The second half of the month is going to be a big sale, too!  Keep your eye out. <3

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.

La Boheme @ The Xmas Bash by Alcoholics Anonymous Events

AA Xmas Bash Sign

La Boheme always loves helping out for a good cause, in this case it is being a sponsor for the Alcoholics Anonymous Events Xmas Bash 2015. We’ve donated a $1,000 gift card as a prize, and throughout the event they will be holding contests to draw winners for all of these gifts donated to their affair – thousands upon thousands of linden dollars in gifts!

This event  is scheduled to start Tuesday Dec 15th and run until Monday Dec 21st.  I will post a reminder closer to the event date.  It’s still in set up mode at present.

Take a Taxi to the Xmas Bash 2015.

All featured nail appliers below are at my stall there on sale for $35 each for the duration of the event.

(If reeeeally eager, you can maybe slip in under the radar and loot my booth as of this time.)

La Boheme – The Nail Applier Conversion Is Underway!

Alright! So the conversion is going a lot faster than I had anticipated.  As you know from my previous blog post on Talus and I communing with higher powers on whether to undertake this overhaul or not, the benefits and drawbacks of creating the OMNI sets, etc. We have gone full steam ahead and are about a third of the way through already.  I really could not take this on without Talus, or it would take me a year to get all the important processing completed alone. A big heart and hug to him, for real. Want to know more about the conversion?  Clicky and read on!

La Boheme – Breast Cancer Awareness Month

pink-ribbon

La Boheme is an avid supporter of good causes, and this is our second year supporting Making Strides Against Breast Cancer in SecondLife!  This year we have two means of doing this, both costing you next to nothing to assist in the awareness and prevention of breast cancer in your fellow sisters.  First, we have a set of nail appliers which are compatible with Slink, Omega and Maitreya and will cost all of a L$2 donation by grabbing the hunt object for the MSABC  Boobies Hunt. The object isn’t actually hidden, but right under the hunt info at the event wall – look for the big pink MSABC display.  That display is important, because it is also a vendor which has some super cute pink ribbon angels you can tote in your cleavage to show your support for Breast Cancer Awareness Month (October!) which costs you a donation of L$10.
