Participating Big and Designated stores:
The Little Big Shop 2011 Call for Participants
SL COMMUNITY GOAL: The purpose of The Little BIG Shop Event is to encourage designers to share their talents, network, and become both mentors and learners in a collaborative community of love and prims! Established big shops help out little shops by mentoring them with things like how to manage, network, or how to build and make quality products.
The Little BIG Shop Event chairs–Tala Swan, Yasmino GossipGirl and Faint Paulse–need your help to bring clean water to Africa and India!
We’re very excited about raising money for the water project and providing mentoring opportunities for up-and-coming content creators.
Vintage Boutiques on Main Street (website in progress: http://www.wix.com/lilbigshop/2011)
This event will be a coming together of SL communities: little stores, big stores, artists–all for the cause of bringing water to another hometown, the villages. A large number of stores will participate in the event, which will be held at a sim donated by Maddox Dupont of KMADD Enterprise (http://www.kmaddenterprise.com). Each boutique will house 2-4 big and little stores, mixed together. Boutique window displays will be created by SL artists, making the event both a great place to shop and a lovely sight to explore. A summary of the guidelines for participation are all detailed in the sections that follow.
What are “BIG” and “Little” shops?
BIG: These shops are generally well-established, well-known stores who are having success in the SL market.The designers in this role should be willing to help and be committed to mentoring the little shop.
little: These shops are usually just starting out and may or may not have a start-up business in
world. Generally, these designers just want to learn new things and need a little advice. They will need be just as committed as big shops!
Designated Vendors : These are shops in the Fair that are not sponsoring a little shop. You will need to make one exclusive item for the Fair and that item’s proceeds will be going to the Charity. The theme for that object must relate to water or the color blue.
