Time passes so quickly . It seems like a week ago I took down my Christmas decorations in sl and here I am getting ready to at least think about this year’s decor and activities though it is still a month and days away.
I love to visit the sweet little Christmas markets with their little
stalls housing goods from many creators that are around the grid . The
snow covered trees and ground add to the festivity of the season. I am
leaving my pocketbook home and just taking my camera along ( That won’t
work for long).
The Winter Wonderland Christmas Bazaar is always pleasure to visit. The walkways are lined with oversized snow globes that are so lovely. ωɨԃgεт (Sahirah Hauptmann) of Sahi Designs creates the decor found here. There is a skating pond near by and you can rezz a zippy little sled to scoot round on the ice or put on your skates and take a spin.
The next stop was at Dina LaVega (Dinahel Resident) ‘s ChristKindl and Advent Calendar. This quaint market with stalls circling a large skating pond has large and small decor for your house or larger area to decorate . It had snow globes in several different sizes and out came my purse! The market was busy while I was there because of the lovely wares that are offered. Stop by just to admire if not shop.
Around the back of the market area there are more goodies for sale to decorate your region for the winter. Charming winter settings for very good prices.
Christmas Lane by Bee Caudron of Bee Designs is another wonderful market to visit. Inside the market area and outside the sights are so cheery. She describes it as “A big mall full of Christmas decor items in a magic place where you will feel the real Christmas spirit wherever you go.” and it is.
Many artists presents their creations in the little shops. I did succumb to trying the gachas near the entrance. Watch out for all the cute critters running around. This is another site where you must roam both outside inside the market area to see the enticing offers of winter decor and, if not shopping just to enjoy the lovely scenes.you need a bridge , of a camping site or a small pavilion? Go take a long walk inside and outside this market . It is well worth it.
“3D Republic's Annual Christmas and Winter Market. Bringing together many creators from various backgrounds to bring you the joy and creation they have brought to SL. You need to take a walk outside the building to get to the market itself over the bridge. Explore the market. Many little shops filled with goodies. Be sure to stop at the gift tree for your gifts!”
This is a lovely market to roam through. They will be open until January 6 in case you forget anything.
