It’s always nice to find a store that makes you want to visit frequently. You start aisle by aisle, picking out what you will buy, and what’s going to be your future purchase. Once you join the update group and you know what the newest hot items are, they must be added to the list too, or be bought. Maybe I should just IM the owner and ask for a flat rate, one of each to go?!

The landing point is right in front of the entrance, in a balcony with two tables and chairs where you can sit and relax, enjoying the view of a little pond and the other shops in the Ivalde Sim. A few steps forward you enter a huge hall with an antique wood stairway to the second level. Though the shop is very wide and bright it gives you no sense of comfort. I would say it is rather practical: you don’t need to worry about getting lost because there are clear and visible signs leading you to different categories with neatly arranged vendors which have beautiful pictures in lovely colours.

You can join the update group and purchase gift and store cards, as well. The dollabies area is easily found on the second level. Besides vintage clothes, you will find a hall dedicated to skins too.

The creations are very detailed with beautiful and classic colours. The prices are reasonably affordable and the goods come in a well sorted folder so you don’t need to rez and unpack a shopping bag.

So, let’s go shopping at Ivalde!
