Yesterday my friend Jazaar sent me a Marketplace link to AleyMart. Although I know there are a lot of freebies on the Marketplace, I had never before encountered a Marketplace store that was ENTIRELY freebies.
Good ones, too! Aley specializes in pirate-themed objects. There are wooden sailing ships (including the Queen Anne’s Revenge), a number of buildings and other structures with which you can make a Pirate Town, airships, cutlasses, skeletons, treasure, and sunken ruins…and much more. There are over 300 items in the store, most of them in the pirate or steampunk themes.
Aley has an in world store too. You’ll find a visit to either or both treasure troves worth your while, matey! And remember, people who run freebie stores, whether on the Marketplace or in world, have operating expenses just like a for-pay store. So, if you can, toss a few pieces of eight into the donation jar.
Now on to a store that is decidedly NOT free, but also worth a visit. It has been a long time since I last visited Mohna Lisa Couture. My last visit was way back before Mesh. Mohna Lisa has always had beautiful evening gowns…but now they are offering formal dresses in both full and partial Mesh versions,as well as some with no Mesh parts at all. Mohna Lisa also sells men's formal wear and bridal fashions.
As well as the fashions being sold, the store itself has been upgraded. Shopping there gives one a real experience of entering the world of High Fashion…slick, stylish, expensive and glittery, with gorgeous temptations on display everywhere.
When you visit, take a fat wallet, or your doting partner or boyfriend. Be prepared to spend a long time browsing…making a choice here isn’t easy!
