Spargel & Shine Homes – Allison Antique Shoppe

with one comment

The ‘Allison Antique Shoppe’ is a beautiful, original mesh shop/prefab by designer Tess of Spargel and Shine. Available at the current round of the Cosmopolitan Event which runs for another week. To view this beauty in the flesh (or in the brickwork) take the teleport at the Cosmopolitan store to the housing and furniture display platform. It’s opposite the main entrance door.

Land Impact comes in at 23 for the current size and as the perms are Copy/Modify you can alter this. Please take a copy first though, as you don’t want to break the scripting which makes redecorating this shop easy. I’ve done some close-up shots so you can see the depth of texturing which is very fine.

Find the ‘Decorator Menu’ just inside the door and do click around so you can see the full extent of possibilities. For the exterior, you can have either block – with 22 tint options – or brick. Brick gives a stronger feel to the exterior and would suit certain shopping sims well. There’s plenty of wall space for vendors, both downstairs and on the upper floor, with the use of slit windows on the side walls.

An above the door lamp switches on and off at a click and there’s a good spread of light which changes the depth of texture around the front elevation. The doors swing open and closed in a realistic manner.

Then there are two interior options for the walls. One controls the downstairs and the other, upstairs. In this way it’s possible to create a different feel to the two floors.  My photos show ‘Sunflower’ downstairs and ‘Spruce’ upstairs.

The price is fair considering the scripting options to exterior and interior and also the fact that it’s original mesh that you won’t find elsewhere. L$925 for the duration of the Cosmopolitan Event. Although Tess designates this as a shop/store, I think it’s practical enough for a small home as well and at only 23 Land Impact, that’s an excellent second option. With the use of a Land Protector, it would have sufficient security for a home. There’d also be plenty of prims left for decorating and landscaping, even on a 512 parcel.

I used Windlights – Annan Adored Light Explosion 2 & TrinettySky – Midday Vivid Blue but ordinary Midday setting is still beautiful and further upholds the quality of the texturing.
