.. roawenwood @ 2014 SL home and garden expo ..

The 2014 SL Home and Garden Expo opens to the public in 2 days. I had the chance to visit the nine sims today and there is just so much to see.  So many great designers/creators and the layout is very nice… easy to get around and easy to see everything.  The exhibitions are all welcoming with so much newness.  I think you will enjoy taking the time to visit the Expo when it opens on 9/16.  You will have a couple of weeks as doesn’t close until 9/28.  The SL Home and Garden Expo is a fundraising event for Relay For Life of Second Life.

I wanted to share some of that newness with you.  Searlait Nitschke, the creator/designer behind Roawenwood, has created some rather awesome looking items.  Roawenwood is one of the platinum sponsors of the Expo and is a long-time supporter of RFL events in SL.  Searlait often designs items just to benefit RFL and this year is no exception.  She has a set of shop buildings that are great and the single and double versions are on sale with 100% proceeds to RFL.  The third in the set that is also available is a grande shop version which is nearly three wide but one shop.  These would look great for village setting.  The shops come with a great cobblestone mesh path that can be used to create a courtyard or pathway.  I created a courtyard, open area with this cobblestone and placed Searlait’s fountain right in the center.  This set makes me want to open shops!

The 2014 Second Life Home and Garden Expo will be opening on September 16, 2014 and once again will raise money for Relay For Life of Second Life, the signature fundraising event for the American Cancer Society. The Home and Garden Expo, in its 7th year, is a fave among those that love to decorate, landscape and find new exciting offerings from Second Life’s home and garden creators.  For this event, the exhibiting creators were required to display two brand new items created just for the Home and Garden Expo.  Imagine the possibilities among the 90+ creators!  Every item sold at this year’s Expo will be via an official Relay For Life of Second Life vendor and a preset percentage of the sales will be donated to RFL of SL.  The percentages allowed are 20, 40, 60, 80 or 100 and will be displayed on each vendor.  During the Expo, there will also be raffles, auctions, and a paid hunt – all filled with creations donated by the exhibitors.  100% of all donations paid to kiosks, raffles, auctions and hunts will go directly to RFL of SL.  The 9 region event will run from September 16th through the 28th.
