I admit it, I love the gacha yard sales. I call it yardsailing as I flit from place to place, looking for the items on my shopping list, the things I want, the things I need, those things I covet. Some things I love about it:
- Running into people. I see all sorts of people I NEVER see anywhere, not at events or parties. But there they are, like beggar princesses rolling through the gacha yard sales soaking up the goodies. It’s fun and it makes me smile to see everyone.
- Actually seeing the goods. People that do nice presentations of the items at the yard sales get my money. Putting things in pine boxes is lame and boring. I won’t usually bother. One place I went had “display tables” of the items out, so you could see them. That really facilitated my divide between “must have” and “oh hell no”.
- People that sell at reasonable prices. I get it, perceived value and the rareness of that item makes you think that it’s worth 20X what you paid for it. And it probably is to some people. But not to me. So I keep moving and give other people my lindens.
- The conversations. I never ever, see as many in chat conversations anywhere as I see at yard sales. It’s like a great big open conversation where everyone is welcome. People are sharing information, their enthusiasm for the products and tips on other places to go to get items. It’s so much fun.
- Finding a RARE. Everyone once in a while you roll up to a RARE that is for sale and NOT insanely priced. I have to admit, I’ve bought them before just because I was excited to find them. I usually give them away though, I shop based on color and my likes and not rarity.
I have an ARCADE true tragedy to tell you about from this morning. Every day, I try a couple of times to TP into the Arcade. I NEVER succeed. But, this morning – WOOOOOSH into the Arcade I went.
I WAS SO EXCITED.
I went to turn down my graphics settings because WOOOHOO I WAS AT THE ARCADE…..and I hit the HOME button on Niran’s viewer by mistake and WOOOOOOSH I was standing at my house. Arcade was now full and I couldn’t get back in. FML.
I will try again in a few days. 🙁
