Now you might have heard of the term, Dollarbie before. If not then listen up, a dollarbie is any item or clothes that can be purchased on SL for nothing more than one linden. 1L$. As a newbie, you will live off of these amazing deal, whether it be on the SL Marketplace or even inworld.
This bargain carried me through my newbie months. Once I was able to get some money from winning or taking part in events, and raiding several Money Trees, the dollarbie became my best friend. One store that gave me THE experience in dollarbie was Phoenix Rising.
Phoenix Rising is the brain child of Ashoka Eales and began in 2007. Since then it has become a very popular store specialising in the very sexy, the very naughty and the very stylish. PR specialised in both male and female clothing and offer two types of discounts, the dollarbie and the 25L$, the marketplace store shows you 25L$, while you can find dollarbie deals inworld, along with the 25L$ and a wide range of women’s clothing.
Sadly while walking through the store a few weeks I noticed that the male section was closed down with only a few items available.
While researching for this article several people have told me that Phoenix Rising is closing. I am not sure about any of the details , but if this actually is happening I suggest that you bargain loving shoppers get down to Phoenix Rising as soon as you can.
The lag within the store can be horrible at times, but it is worth it. Phoenix Rising is an amazing store, with (now!) amazing bargains, fantastic and fashionable clothes. Don’t believe me? See for yourself!
