Every Monday I blog a Mainstore Monday meme featuring two mainstores from around the grid. The purpose of this is to redress the balance a little between event shopping and mainstores shopping and show some examples of great mainstores, ideas, sims and places to blog and share with your friends. I love shopping events and will be the first trying to get my pixel butt into all of them but I also love a great mainstore.
This week I’ve visited two stores that share a beautiful sim, Lamb and Tres Blah.
I adore Lamb hair. When I gained early access to the Hair Fair this year Lamb was one of my first stops and I wasn’t disappointed. I am also loving their hairstyles at this round of the Arcade too. The Lamb hair store is a quaint store on a sim that has the air of a small French town square. The inside of the store is just as full of character as the outside too. Lamb hair ranges from the funky to the cute, often with a more than a dash of retro and vintage to them too. Certainly when I am putting together a vintage or classic style look it’s one of my first stops for hair to compliment the look.
It’s not a huge store but it packs the items in without looking over busy and the items are all well displayed and easily accessible which is no mean feat in a store that has a number of arches and alcoves.
There’s not a lot of fuss about this store, it very much does what it says on the tin. There’s no big reception area with details of events and giftcards and other sundry items, just a Hello and straight into the business at hand…trying on your hair.
Directly opposite Lamb is Tres Blah which is fast becoming one of my favourite event stores after recent rounds of awesomeness at events like C88. I haven’t taken too many internal pics of the store as there are a number of ‘Under Construction’ signs up and about…but to be honest they have been there for quite some time so I’m not actually sure if the store is under construction or it’s some kind of clever joke that has gone straight over my head.
The majority of items in the store are clothing but there is a very good selection of other fashion related items too and also a wall dedicated to the gorgeous gachas that Tres Blah has put together for events like The Arcade.
The hair that I am wearing in the above pic is in fact that hair that I made total grabby hands for at the Hair Fair and is now available in the Lamb store. I’ll be back next week with another Mainstore Monday. Have a great week everyone!
