Destination Guide & S.L. Search Showcase!

Cookies Country Park in the Destination Guide

A Linden's View of the Jar ;-)

Well after all the hard work in the blazing SL sun, making the “wooded country” theme as nice and natural as pixels will allow, we think the Cookie Jar sims are a great place to come & relax, enjoy, explore and take it easy, as well as checking out the stores of course…

And it seems like the Lindens agree with us!

The Second Cookie Jar sim is now featured in the Official Second Life Destination guide by Linden Labs as a Nature & Parks location, it is certainly a tribute to the beautiful surroundings and an honour to be featured there.

you can check it out here and if you have facebook, give the “like” button a click to show yah support…

Of course this comes hand in hand with the in-world Second Life Serch Main Page called Showcase, and right now we are top of the first page (again) lol!!!

The Cookie Jar Market has been refreshed

This weekend has seen a hive of activity down at the Cookie Jar Market, some stalls have totally new merchants on them whilst the rest have had all the items changed, so everything you see on offer at the market is all new and of course brilliant…

There are many items from as little as 10L$ one merchant is even doing a half price sale, many exclusive items too, it is definitely not to be missed!

Here’s just a few snapshots of the delights that await!

Double The Cookies

Posted on

Following our Grand Opening last week the Cookie Jar sim was overflowing with all the hustle and bustle we had far more applications for sore rentals than we had stores…

So what was the answer? More Cookies of course!

This week has seen a brand new sim attached to the existing Cookie Jar Sim, it carries on the theme and is a beautiful place to come and relax, explore and enjoy the atmosphere by the lake, not to mention shop at the exquisite merchants stores that are scattered around.

The Cookie Jar community is not just about the sim though, we have many approved merchants that do not have a store at the sim but take part in the community helping bring amazing quality home and garden items into SL, check out our Approved Merchant page for the slurls to them all.

Gifts, Gifts & More Gifts!

We have tried to include as many of the gifts as we could, some we couldn’t take pics of, some were only put out after I had taken the pics, some I have probably missed, so there is more to be found.

Remember the gifts are at the landing point on the sim AND in the stores and on the market stalls, it is literally packed, so make sure you have a good walk round and pick them all up while you can :-)

Lindsay’s Day At The Market

Today’s grand opening has been a total success! I spent a good part of the day chatting with others, watching people tp in and out, explore and did some exploring myself. The merchants who had gifts out had very good ones too. Of course I collected them rofl. The lag was so thick you had trouble moving but it was SO worth it! What an awesome turnout we had! The sim crashed once too! Maybe we can do that again? LOL who knows! So far this market has been a total success and I am very excited to be a part of it and am very hopeful of its future successes.

!GRAND OPENING IS HERE!

Posted on

After a week of preparation and anticipation the day of the Grand Opening is finally upon us, and it is another fine sunny day in SL lol, yes we know there is no real weather in SL but it feels that way down in the Cookie Jar woodlands.

Such a great atmosphere and loads upon loads of amazing free gifts as welcome items from our merchants these are on the grass outside our shoe office and scattered around the sim on the market stalls and in the stores in the village, don’t miss out they are only here for a limited time.

We will be blogging the gifts today but just wanted to thank all the Cookie Jar merchants for their gifts and hard work leading up to the opening and show you all the fruits of your labour are paying off, the traffic on the sim is at an all time high and we hope it continues, spread the word about The Cookie Jar everyone is welcome.

Enjoy the weekend, huggs
