My favorite shopping places on the hypergrid

I am passionate about OpenSim and making OpenSim more accessible to people unfamiliar with the OpenSim platform. New people, like myself a few years back, need places to get things for their avatar and their region and this is my contribution.
I visited a variety of places on the hypergrid and what has surprised me the most is the amount of high quality freebie shopping there is on the hypergrid.
What follows is not an exhaustive list of shopping destinations using the OpenSim hypergrid to go shopping for avatar appearance and environment objects — anything that isn’t related to how your avatar looks.

Clonelife: Kang Nae [Druskus War]

login.clonelife.eu:8002:Kang Nae

When I first arrived in OpenSim I knew of no places on the hypergrid to get clothing and basics for my avatar and Kang Nae was one of the very first places I discovered and still return to often. Many of my first outfit combos came from here, fond memories.

You will find everything from skin, to shoes, to dresses and club wear here. When I first arrived on this region I thought the inside area was all there was to see here. It wasnt until a few trips later that I final found outside and what a bananza of club gear, clubs, speakers, animations and a whole load more.

Craft World: Sensation City [Sensation Millennium group owned]

Craft World is an amazing place to find freebies and I explored some of them in a previous post (read the post here). From my exploration there are two areas for shopping (there is also a club, a harbour and a drive-in); (1) ground level (2) up the stairs passed the tipsy Santa.

Thanks for Shawnkmaloney and his Christmas 2016 list posted to the Hypergrid Destinations Google Plus group for this find. My new hair that I have at the moment is from here, high quality freebies for men and women and other virtual objects to make your virtual home more cozy.

Bubblesz and Metropolis: La Barronie and Savvy [Taarna Welles]

bubblesz.nl:8002:Savvy

We start our shopping on the Metorpolis grid and a region called La Baronnie then we will head over to the Bubblez grid. If you are looking for mesh feet, mesh feet and shoes, mesh clothing or games boards this is the place for you to head. I currently have the mesh feet as part of my avatar they are well made.

The second region by Taarna is called Savvy and is located on the Bubblesz grid. You can find lots of high quality mesh for men and women here. You can also find this region on the Metropolis Grid as well. Taarna Wells is always adding new items to the collections and the latest additions was a full mesh outfit for men.

Metropolis: Aqua Dark [Lacchi Macchi]

hypergrid.org:8002:Aqua Dark

Aqua Dark, like Kang Nae is one of the very first avatar appearance regions that I found. There are so many things here from full avatars, to sculpt maps, dance and avatar animation overrides and landscaping content.

I always like to head up the stairs and take a look around and inevitable grab a new outfit. Then head back outside and take a look at all the landscaping goodies you can find, like grasses with multiple variations and trees.

Metropolis: FreebiesShop [Night Raven: Moonwalkers group]

hypergrid.org:8002:FreebiesShop

At ground level there is a collection of all sorts of freebies from what you need for your avatar and some non avatar appearance items. The ground level is housed in an amazing structure. The only thing I will mention is that the landing point every time I teleport here I end up in the water needing to cam out to double click teleport to the store.

Up in the sky you will find even more goodies to make your avatar look good, my clothing folder in my own inventory is stuffed full of most of the stuff here. When you teleport up to the sky level you will land in the middle of the store with men and women’s clothing either side.

Naras Nook: Coca [Shannon Albright]

The creators at the Nook do some amazing stuff and I wanted to include this region as there are so many high quality gowns, tuxedos and other freebies.

The Public World [Kai Baer]
A few weeks ago when the Nook I bumped in to Nara and asked if she knew of any places to get hair and to my surprise a folder of landmarks arrived in my inventory. The following four regions are where the landmarks took me. If you visit them all everything from your avatar appearance to buildings are on offer for free.

Anettes World: Atlantis and Atlantis 1 [Anette Hummel]

anettes-welt.de:8002:Atlantis
anettes-welt.de:8002:Atlantis1

The two Atlantis regions on Annettes World are a true one stop shop for just about anything. There must be over 35 shops here with some very unique and high quality items not seen elsewhere. Allot of the content here can be found pretty much all over my grid. Both regions share the same layout with a green space in the center with the shop units surrounding the green.

Between the two regions you can find formal wear for men and women, full avatar outfits, tattoos, piercings, indoor and outdoor furniture and many other goodies. If I want to try and find something quickly this is one of the places that I come to first.

Great Canadian Grid: Lakeview Park Mall [Bastien Falconvale: LakeviewMall group]

login.greatcanadiangrid.ca:8002:Lakeview Park Mall

Tranquility and shopping my favourite combination, this region contains shops set in an natural open space and lives up to its name, Lakeview. You will find a range of creators and creations here to peruse at your leasure and maybe park your avatar on a bench and take in the scenary.

You can find a selection of avatar appearance content, furniture, art work
