There are many events each month in Second Life that feature a group of designers selling some of their wares. But among all these different affairs, there is one in particular that I would like to draw your attention to and illustrate one reason in why i feel that this jubilee continues to be extremely popular among the residents of SL.
Collarbor88, run by Jezibell Thorne and octagons Yazimoto, is a event where a bunch of clothing, skin, pose, furniture and accessory creators come and place some of their merchandise for sale. Sounds like a typical market affair, right? But what sets this jubilee apart is that all the items sold there must include the number 88 in its price. For example, a shirt might be sold for L$ 188, while a pair of jeans may be on sale for L$ 88. The inclusion of the number of 88 in the prices of the items being sold there might not be odd for many people, but for me, I always like to know the motivation behind actions. So, while I don’t know the official reason in why the number 88 must be figured into the prices of the things being sold there, I have come up with one possible explanation for this measure.
For those who know me, know that I am Pagan. With that said, I have an interest in numbers and numerical sequences, as i feel they represent a message that the angels are trying to get me. I researched the number 88 and discovered that this sequence could be a code for the support that the angels are giving you to pursue your purpose in life. With such a powerful statement from the angels, should this be what they are trying to say, a conclusion could be made, that Collarbor88 was ment to be.
Regardless of why Collarbor88 is successful, this event provides an arena for designers to sell some of their items and gain exposure and customers to buy great stuff at usually reduced prices.
