Antique Grid Show has a NEW blog

It has been ages since I last posted here, and for that I apologize.  Both RL and SL have taken me in other directions.  However, I am pleased to now announce that Antique Grid Show has a NEW home at this blog.  With the help of Saraphen Calliope, AGS has a bright future ahead.  Check out the new blog for information about the new, current hunt!

75L Sale Weekend of 12/6

Salutations all!!

At Antique Square, merchants have been hard at work setting up their shop spaces.  Several merchants have set up special deals just for you at Antique Square only!  The merchandise is wonderful!

When you go to participating stores, look for the products with the blue baubles.

Some stores will also provide a trail directly to some merchandise as well.

Be sure to check out our list of participating stores on the 75L SALE! page on the blog.  The sale will run until Monday, so be sure to run on in and grab some gifts for yourself, or a loved one!

Antique Grid Show present Antique Sqaure

Greetings everyone!

Over the last few months, I have had several inquires as to when we would host our next event.  After some thought, I decided that the next event would be Antique Square - a seasonal holiday destination.  A few years back, I had a place by the same name, but closed it due to some real life circumstances (pesky RL).  Many people enjoyed the destination and have also been asking if it would return.  Now, we've got two for one!

Antique Square is situated on the Dream City sim and is nestled within mountains and an icy port looking into the vast unknown.  On its grounds are eleven shops filled with wondrous items for your shopping and viewing pleasure.  Around our central square (park with an ice skating rink), are four booths with more wonderful items crafted by more of our well-known and beloved designers.

The sim is now accessible to all visitors, but not all merchants have completed set up, so do be sure to return should you come in early.

We have a 5L sim hunt in the works to begin December 15; so make sure to pop round for that!  As of now, Antique Square is not slated to last beyond the middle of the new year, but should interest be great enough, who knows what the future holds!

So, stop on by our wintery Dickensian shopping village today!

Summer 10L Hunt Last Call

Good evening everyone!

Today, July 27, marks the last official day of the Antique Grid Show: Summer 10L Hunt.  First, I want to thank all of you who have participated as either a shopkeeper or hunter; anyone who spread the word of the hunt through word of mouth, blog, or groups, etc. 

This was our third hunt!  I know, right?  Hard to believe!  We've been fortunate to have a great run each time, too!  Each hunt has brought new shops and some of the same shops back with their incredible wares.  This hunt has been the smoothest running thus far, and I must give a big thank you to all of our merchants who were ready to go from the beginning (and a few who came through quickly).  I know that I was excited and very happy with the quality of the items!  Although, I don't think I'll be wearing a gown soon...Good to have in the closest for costume contests, I presume.

So, anyway, you have until midnight.  July 28, merchants will begin to clean up their hunt items.  Some will probably have them available as 10L hunt items for stragglers.  That is up to the merchant starting tomorrow. 

Keep your eyes peeled for the upcoming Autumn Hunt!!  It will mark our 1 year anniversary of antique themed hunts!  Woohoo!!  This blog will have the details. 

As always, we are considering other activities and options for Antique Grid Show.  Per our survey that ran during the hunt, 22 people voted and the overwhelming majority would like to receive weekly notices from merchants regarding their sales and promotions; new releases.  I will begin to work on how that will work and make sure you know more about the our stores and their new antique themed items as they are released; we will definitely keep it to the theme.  Thank you to all who did vote!

Have fun!

Let the Hunting Begin!

Welcome to the Antique Grid Show: Summer 10L Hunt!

We're very happy to announce that our third hunt has started.  With the wonderful help of participating merchants and the great participation of hunters, we've been able to make our hunts a success! 

While hunting, please remember to look for the light bluish green books.  You can find an example of them as hint givers beside our hunt signs.  Each store has a hint provided for you.  Some hunts might have a hunt trail in the form of smiling sunshine.  Follow those to assist in finding the items.  Remember, each item is set to 10L. 

If you should need help, or want to provide a space to speak with fellow hunters, do feel free to use our in-world group: Antique Grid Show.  However, please refrain from vulgarity and abusive language. 

We'd also appreciate if you take a few quick moments to answer our poll along the side of he blog; up top above the pages.  We're taking a small poll regarding the use of the Antique Grid Show group.  If you would like to receive notices via the group about various merchants sales and promotions (only one per week per merchant), vote yes.  If not, vote no.

Thanks and happy hunting!
