How about a FREE STORE?

Pulse and Sn@tch City are offering a shop for FREE to a new designer every month. The shop located right inside my main store will be available by application and of our choosing each month for a month for FREE.

We love to celebrate and encourage new talent, especially alternative designers (horror, goth, punk, grunge, trashy, glam etc), so to do this pro-actively, we are offering a store to new designers on our sim. We've been doing this for several months now and found it's a great way for new creators to get a little leg up and exposure in a busy shopping area and on the blogs. Former new designer stores include RaRa Avis, Deco, Tyranny, Black Canary & Silver Wheel.

The rules are simple...
You must follow the directions of the application.You must have been designing for six months or under.You must be available to set up your store within two days of notice.Your items must be of a more alternative nature, be it clothing, accessories, avatar enhancements, household or prim design.

Choosing from the applications will be difficult enough, so please follow these instructions carefully. Put the following items in a folder and name it .....Free Shop Application-"Your Name" and send the whole folder to Ivey Deschanel. Anything that is sent not in an appropriately named folder will be declined or disqualified.

1. A notecard that lists, your name, your brand/store name, the approximate date you began designing and a short explaination of why you began designing in SL.
2. At least FIVE vendor ads/images. You are welcome to send more but don't get nuts lol
3. A sample item so we can see the close up quality (can be just a shirt, freebie or small item)
4. A landmark to your main store if you have one.
If you are chosen we will notify you personally by the first of the month and your free shop rental will run until the first of the next month. The free store designer will also be announced in our blog, on the SL fashion feeds and in Fashcon announcements and group notices for

Store Details:
The space will be empty and we will allow 100 prims total. up to 50 for product and 50 to decorate with. Please understand that any heavy scripts that affect sim performance or anything that laps over into the neighboring stores (floating text, lighting etc) we may ask you to remove. No temp rezzers or scripted vendors please, only single prim simple vendors. We also request that you stay somewhat within design style of the sim but have fun with it and be creative and promote your personal brand and style!

All applications will be kept for the next month and considered in the next application period. We're not as concerned with supreme quality as we are with potential and creativity so don't think you couldn't get it because you're unsure of yourself. It never hurts to try and its a great oppotunity for a new go for it!
Thats it...good luck!
