The Wear Gray Market has opened it's doors and is ready to raise some serious funds for the American Brain Tumor Association.
Take your limo right to the centre of the market. To help everyone have as close to a lag free shopping experience as possible, you'll be offered a Lag Reducing Tips note card on landing. There are some very helpful hints in there and also some myth-busters. You'll probably be surprised that what you normally thought was a great lag reducer - actually isn't =) One of the helpful ideas is sitting on a prim and editing/moving yourself around. It's a lot easier when the lag monster strikes to just slide around on a prim. So to help you with that you'll see a stack of boxes where you land. They have been set so anyone can use them, so grab a prim, park your tush....and enjoy shopping sitting down for a change. (oh and psst a little fairy told me they are also set for sale with freebie gifts inside).
The central area includes banners from our merchants who have their stores in the market. Each sign has the LM to their main store, just touch and go. Their are also banners scattered around the sim. As you can see we have a lot of designers sponsoring this very worthwhile cause. It is so fantastic to see so many people getting behind it.
Just behind you when arriving are the auction boards. During the two weeks of the Market there will be three items, donated from the merchants of Wear Gray, that will be auctioned off in the bid boxes. These will run for 24 hours and the highest bidder will automatically be sent the item upon closing. 100% of the profits raised from these auctions goes towards Wear Gray supporting the American Brain Tumor Association. The auction details can be found on our Events page.
The stage area was kindly designed and donated by Weather! or Not?. At a low 31 prims it looks absolutely fantastic. If you love it as much as we do - pop over to !WorN?'s Wear Gray store and grab one. It's only available at Wear Gray as an exclusive, so don't leave it till the last minute. There are 10 DJ's lined up over the course of the two weeks that will be appearing at Wear Gray and performing at the central stage. Make sure to check our Events page to keep up to date with who is playing, and when.
