Nerdy Girl in-world Closing Sale


Super Heroes

It’s hard to see much beloved stores close their doors in Second Life… and Nerdy Girl has announced that she will be moving the in-world store to the Marketplace to pursue new adventures after July 12th. In the meantime, as a bit of a farewell gift to all the loyal customers who love nerdology, the in-world store is having a last hoorah and closing sale before it moves to the marketplace… a bonus for all of us loyal shoppers 🙂

Nerdy Girl has put out all the old gifts for one thing, so if you are a group member, stop by and pick up any you missed (the join fee is only 25L if you are not already a member, and with all the goodies, it’s worth joining).

In addition, all store merchandise is priced at 25L or lower, excluding gachas. In salute to the Nerdy ways, Loki and I decided to go as Nerd Heroes. I am not convinced that he got it quite right, but then he thinks I didn’t do it right either… we agreed to disagree, since Rainbow Brite is my favorite, and he said Superman was super.

My rainbow bright costume includes the mesh skirt, applier top and leggings, and the bow (which comes in a left, center, or right fit). For 25L, it’s quite a deal!

Loki’s mesh hoodie in all the standard sizes is quite a find indeed, as there is a texture change hud included. The hud changes the t-shirt and hoodie separately, for lots of nerd fun… hero symbols on the shirt and hoodie all separate for whatever hero you want to be that day. For 25L, there’s a hero in every guy just waiting to come out!

  1. I’ve often thought that SL can often reflect real life, and SL’s High Streets are now haemorrhaging stores at an alarming rate.

    In effect, the price of rental tiers (just like in the real life High Street) is prohibitively expensive, leaving many towns (I’m writing from a UK perspective in particular, and European perspective in a wider sense) like ghost towns/abandoned land. Stores that can survive do so by moving to edge-of-town shopping malls and industrial estates – or the Marketplace, to frame it in SL terms.

    What is real life left with? A parade of empty shops. What is Second Life left with? Abandoned land.

    Real life needs to lower its rents to reinvigorate its real life High Streets. Second Life needs to lower its rents to reinvigorate those who wish to open a little virtual store (or, indeed, any other element of SL real estate…clubs, virtual versions of the world’s landmarks, or whatever floats our boats)



  2. Hi Trine, I can’t speak for Nerdy Girl on or about the reason behind the choice to close the shop other than what was given in the announcements… and that is that the creator is moving to Marketplace in order to have more time for other ventures. I appreciate that you read Fabfree and choose to comment.

  4. Hi Georgia! I can’t agree more… on all that you have to say. I know that whatever her new endeavors are, they will be awesome! And great old school costumes for 25L is a DEAL! I wanted them all too! Thank you so much for reading and for your comment 🙂
