Grand Opening Success!

Collage by SeleneLily Galicia
I wanted to do a follow up blog on the Grand Opening we had November 20. What a day! We had a blast and it was a great success. We literally had 15 to 20 people on the sim all day and all evening long. What a wonderful turnout and now I think more know that the sim is here and hope they will return again and again :D I've noticed quite a few have posted pictures they took while visiting, and they're all beautiful. I just love to see everyone's talents and their favorite areas of the sim captured in pictures. I hope if you haven't already, you will enter our photography contest with some of those pictures. The blog before this one explains it all in detail. There's also a poetry contest going on.

Faery Sola of Studio Sidhe launched her brand new Unicorn multi-pose prop (5 poses) at Enchanted and it was very successful. She now has it available at her store, too. The pricing is amazing for all the work that was put into it...only 500L! We had other vendors on the sim that day, Simply Fae, Evie's Closet, Fallen Gods and Elvenbreath all participated. All the vendors were very generous and gave a percentage or all of their sales to our animal rights fund we donate to, Friends of Animals. The total we made from the vendors alone was approximately 20,000L! That is excellent for one day of sales! All of this money will be donated to the fund.

We also had a DJ who played at the sim for 2 rounds, 3 hours each. His name is Jack and he played a variety of music, anything from Enya to Rock. The second round we had quite a few out on the dance "pond" showing their moves. Even Squiffy the unicorn was out there dancing!

I want to thank my good friend, SeleneLily Galicia for her help hosting the Opening and also for helping with getting the word out about the Opening. Also, thank you to Faery Sola for all her hard work on the Unicorn and having it done in time for the Opening. She's become someone I consider not just a "business partner", but a nice and good friend in the process :) Most of all, thank you for everyone's support of the sim! I'm so glad you are enjoying it! I've heard so many different descriptions, "peaceful", "beautiful", "amazing", "so much put into it", "reminds me of my childhood", "like a fairy tale", and the list goes on. Thank you all and please visit any time!
