London Shopping – Talking to Shoppers
London Shopping Experiences
While shopping in London, I came across other people doing exactly the same as me. London Mayfair is especially a great place to come shopping. It’s like the real life London shopping experience – without the crowds!
We all know and dread Christmas coming. What do we get for all those dear loved ones? Remembering that socks and chocolates aren’t the answer to everything.
So why not take a trip around the variety of stores currently in London. As you know, stores are opening up all the time and changing their stock too. So one day’s experience will be different from the next!
Before we go into a shopping experience here, we have to find a willing shopper who wants to talk to us. One such kind lady was Victoria (her real screen name -her real name is kept private to keep fans from mobbing her).
Who are London Shoppers?
As I found with Victoria, London shoppers come from all over Second Life. They aren’t necessarily members of the London community, they may be visitors or dedicated shoppers who are looking for some great things to buy.
They often return to London because they’ve shopped here in the past and found something they wanted. London shoppers love the discoveries they make in these sims.
