A few days ago I posted about a new Meme for Bloggers that I wanted to start and hopefully other bloggers would take part in too. Mainstore Monday would cover details of two mainstores in SL and in some way go to redressing the balance on the amount of posts that we all do for shopping events. This all came about after I had a long conversation with the fabulous Toxxic Rhiannyr of Alterego about steps she’s taking to try to increase traffic in her mainstore by doing less shopping events.
This weekend was event shopping crazy so it was a nice break to head to a couple of mainstores and look round at what was on offer.
I had already decided late last week to feature Meva as one of the mainstores for this first blog. Meva, shares a sim with Aimesi Medieval and has a gorgeous range of jewellery, accessories and glasses for both men and women.
Meva is a spacious store, well laid out and it’s easy to find what you’re looking for. As you enter they have pictures of the items they are selling at events with landmarks and information about the events underneath. That’s a great idea and very useful but I hope people take in the store before tp’g out to an event to buy something…they may forget to come back! I grabbed myself the necklace and glasses I am wearing in Picture 1.
Both items come with a hud with numerous options to change colours, gems, metals etc so are great value and extremely versatile.
The second store I visited is one of my favourites. I dread to think how any times Reign appears in my teleport history…if stores could have stalkers I’d have injunction against me by now.
Whatever feet you have then Reign has shoes that will show them off with glitz and glamour. There’s always new releases and info on events and I highly recommend that you keep an eye on the Saturday Sales item. In addition Reign gives a generous store credit with every purchase. There’s a number of accessories, bags, glasses available for sale and gacha machines from previous events. Lastly there is a discount store which houses some older stock which are still exceptional quality and great buys! There’s lots of amazing stores on the Reign sim too and it’s a lovely sim to grab some snaps…especially for bloggers.
If you’re a blogger and would like to take part in Mainstore Monday I’d love to see the blog posts and the pics. There’s a Flickr Group too just for Mainstore Monday pics and links. Please join and share your Mainstore Monday posts.
