STORE LOCATION
—————————–

To ensure that shops of different levels are distributed evenly at the event, we will assign shops of each type in each quadrant of the sim. Each quadrant is anchored by an attraction or entertainment area, which are located in the four corners of the sim.

Our build is atmospheric and each area contains an attraction which will draw visitors. These include, among other things: Gacha Shack Area, Expedition Departure Dock, Theatre & Entertainment Building. There are literally no “bad” areas.

To ensure fairness, shops will be assigned on a first-come, first-serve basis. To ensure the best place, return your invoice with payment ASAP.

We will work with you if we can but all store location decisions made by the Merchant Coordination Team and are final.

CUSTOM STORES
—————————

This year LoveFest welcomes merchants who may wish to create/provide their own store.  The store design concept must be presented to the Fest Staff.  The concept must fit within the theme parameters of the Merchant Quarter:

  • Concept fitting late 1800s thru early 1900s New England building/location,
  • Dark Fantasy if worked in to fit with the Lovecraft-style town theme,
  • Concept fitting late 1800s thru early 1900s New England building/location,
  • Other ideas welcome but accepted solely at discretion of LoveFest Merchant Coordination Team,
  • Prim Allotment:  In addition to the prims allotted per application, a modest number may be allowed for custom store decision,
  • Build Quality:  Quality and appearance must be presentable, not haphazard or shoddy, and may be accepted or rejected solely at the discretion of the Merchant Coordination Team.

We will work with you if we can but all store design decisions are at the discretion of made by the LoveFest 2017 Merchant Coordination Team and are final.
