I'm beginning to realize Opensim may be a dying platform and I'm starting to question the time and expenditure involved in maintaining a physical store.. The hypergrid has lots and lots of interesting regions, but only music events appear to have any traffic, and there seem to be few vibrant socializations outside of those. I've stayed this long because I love to create and I can do things on Opensim I can't do in SL, but at some point, it gets lonely being on the platform and sales barely break even.

Those who do come, love what they find here, and I've had a few very generous patrons of my work, for whom I am deeply appreciative. You have kept me going. But by and large, the hypergrid as a whole does not value original creators who want to sell their work, only those willing to give everything away.

A number of merchant friends have already either closed, or are considering it. I'll give it to the end of this year and see where things stand. In the meantime, I offer my sincere thanks to those of you who have loved my work and been inspired by it.

Blessed be.
