Boo's Changes and Group Information - Official Release

Posted on January 7th 2014

On January 17th Boo's Bits will be re-branding into Boo's Furniture & More. As a result the main store will be closed from the 17th until the 20th. Marketplace sales will still be available.

Please note the major changes to the Boo's brand and group changes

Group Changes:

- Boo's Bits VIP group will be closing. Please join the new group "Boo's Furniture & More VIP Group". You can come to the landing platform at the Boo's Bits store now to join.

Link to Boo's Bits Landing Platform

- The new group is free to join until January 20th after which there will be a small fee of 100L so we can avoid group hoppers and offer more to our members.

- All products sold will have a VIP group discount of either 10%, 15% or 20%. Products are marked showing the amount VIP members save

-A subscriber group will also be available (Though we are currently changing groups due to the old one no longer working properly. Should be available soon). The Subscriber group is free but will have no discounts or special offers.

Product and Store Changes:

- All products will be sold in Modify/Copy format (With the exception of some Marketplace items

- All products sold in store will be available if lost via a redelivery terminal

- Our vending system has changed to Caspertech allowing purchase as gift options

- We have downsized our store to be more compact and easier to find what you are looking for

- Boo's Bits Gift certificates will no longer be valid as of January 17th. Please use them now if you still have some. Our Gift Certificate system will be replaced with CasperTech

- Pricing changes: While there will be some price increases due to moving to a Mod/Copy permission format, generally all prices for copy products will be lower than before. Remember, when you buy something that is copyable you can always get a redelivery if lost, and rez as many copies as you like. This is why Copy products are priced higher. It is a worthy investment for both you and the store just for the reduced risk of losing the item.

- Free upgrades: Another advantage to moving in a Mod/Copy format is that if a specific product is changed or script updated, you can always get the most updated version from our new redelivery terminals. (This does not count for new release versions or designs, only for upgrades and changes to previously sold items)

Ownership Changes

- Our partnership with Waking Dream has expanded to make Jon Enimo a co-owner of the Boo's brand. Jon has been a part of Boo's world in Second Life for the entire time we have been here and this new partnership is very welcome to take some of the load off of Nynaeve.

Note: Please do not send support messages to Jon. Nynaeve Rhapsody is still the primary Boo's contact. He's just helping behind the scenes :) Do however, check out his projects which will be on the sim as of February. 

We would like to thank you for your continued support and hope you will continue to support us after the changes take effect. We are looking forward to bringing you more exciting fun naughty products this year!

The End of "Boo's Bits", The Rise of "Boo's" and the Future to come

I honestly can't remember if it has been 3 years or 4 years I have been doing this. I think it is probably 3 and a half. Not a bad run for a merchant that only started building because I wanted to make stuff I liked instead of buying stuff that never quite met my needs. Also I blame Iris from the amazing "Digs" store for kind of being my merchant muse at the beginning (and still today as I periodically check in to be amazed by her products. I so wish we had remained friends)

I probably wouldn't still have a store without all the things my generous customers have purchased over the years and I am so very thankful for that. I will never understand merchants who don't appreciate this part of being in business. I absolutely do appreciate you, even if there have been times my support was a little weak, or I was travelling and not putting my all into it.

Let me just elaborate on how much I appreciate everyone who shopped at my store. Because of you I was able to get out of debt (a couple thousand dollars worth), travel to Cardiff UK for a Doctor Who convention (you hate me for that I know, but I'm not saying sorry!), gave over $600 to local charity (mostly due to guilt for going to Cardiff.... I kid), buy a new computer (because my old one died) and get a good series of dental issues taken care of (Take care of your teeth kids!).

All of that was possible just by me making some stuff for you to have fun with, and you making the choice to buy it. To me, that is absolutely incredible. Thank you. Thank you. Thank you.

The last couple of years has been very hard on me personally. I have lost a couple good friends to illness and accidents, and lost another due to arrogance (on both our parts). I have fought depression and loneliness and felt a bit like I was having an emotional break down for a good part of 2013. My desire to maintain Boo's Bits was overshadowed by my need to just go somewhere and scream for a while. I even tried the alt Avatar route but then I didn't know anyone and didn't feel like trying to start over again.

I have no doubt we have all been there. I have no illusions that this is somehow just something that has happened to me. Most of this year I logged in and did not have any desire to work on new products or even maintain the store. I have been back and forth a hundred times on if I should even keep the store open. It was only in the last 30 days that I found a spark of inspiration to make something again.

After releasing the 4 new products in this last month I feel like I have found my second wind. That said I still feel like I need some kind of change. So I have made some decisions going forward in Second Life that will hopefully renew my love of this virtual world and renew my love of being a merchant. These decisions will however affect my loyal customers as well.

I have decided that January 31st is the end of Boo's Bits in its current form. This does not mean I am closing my doors, only that I am changing my focus by re-branding and streamlining my products. Boo's Bits was always supposed to be a hobby, something I did on the side for fun and it surprisingly took off. I was ready to be satisfied if I just made back all the money I had put into it but instead exceeded all my expectations by having made a pretty popular Lapdance chair. It was the hobby that became a business.

Not going to lie though, I did hope I'd make some money at it, and I'm really glad I did. I just wish I had kept my mindset in that "Hobby" frame. So now, going forward, I am going to try and do exactly that. Make it something I do for fun, not as something I find myself stressing about in my first life, affecting my relationships and my self worth. I want to enjoy logging in and creating things instead of feeling like I have to.

I started this process a few months ago when I sold the "Isle of Boo" Sim and moved to a half-sim parcel. Now I'm ready to begin the next stages. I hope you will join me for the ride!

Here are the main changes that will be happening in January: Important stuff has been made bold.

1. Many of my products are being retired and will no longer be available again. These items are currently on sale on the marketplace and at my in world store.

2. I will be re-branding as "Boo's - Furniture and More". Basically just dropping the Bits and no longer saying I sell prefabs when I gave that racket up with the introduction of mesh!

3. All my products will be sold in only a Modify/Copy format. This will mean some products will be priced a bit higher, but I have decided to not go overboard. This is the best solution for Customers and for me because it will reduce lost item replacements and give you a bit more freedom to play around with them without consequences.

4. Products that do not sell well will be retired more quickly to make room for newer, more interesting products. Even some of the ones that sell moderately may be replaced with a newer hipper version.

5. I'm reverting back to my original mission statement. When I first opened Boo's Bits I only had a small number of animations available to me to make products. So my mission statement at the time was "You could buy something with 300+ generic animations and maybe use 10 of them, or you could buy something from me with 70-100 animations and end up using all of them". I was very picky about the animations and wanted to make sure they were all practical.

 Over time I acquired more and more animations. It was a bit of an unhealthy addiction to be honest! My products became more packed full with animations and were not always practical... just you know... lots of choice. Choice generally is a good thing but when there is too much choice our avatars spend more time discovering the options rather than getting on with using them!.

So I'm starting over and keeping that mission statement alive. This doesn't mean I won't have any products with 200 or so animations. It just means that when I do I'll make sure they are all practical and worth being there.

6. Some products will be only available on the Marketplace. Mainly PG products, now that I am on an adult sim.

7. This is a big one. The Boo's Bits VIP group will be retired and a new "Boo's VIP" group will be created. It will cost 50L to join this group to make it more exclusive. This may not be an appealing idea to you but I want to a) avoid group hoppers who just join for 5 minutes to get the discounts, and b) I am not as interested in just having a group of customers but I'd like to create a community. The discounts, gifts and specials will be there still as well as a chance to beta test new products, submit product ideas and suggestions and get real time support from others in the group when I am not available.

A second "Boo's Update Group" will be set up for those who just want to get the product updates and it will be free to join. But there will be no discounts and no free gifts in that group. Just updates when new products are released. It may end up being a subscriber group instead of a Second Life group. I'm exploring my options.

I am still not 100% married to the above idea yet on groups but the more I think about it the more I think it will be better in the long run. Let me know what you think. I will consider other opinions. Feel free to comment on any of the changes.

I have already started planning the new store layout and logos. Here is a sneak peek for you

As you can see it's still a work in progress. When Boo's Bits lives its last day in January my parcel will be closed for 24 hours as I set up the re-brand. Then like the phoenix it will rise again better than ever before!

Well... hopefully better. If not better at least more manageable for my sanity :)

Thank you all so much for everything the last few years. I hope you will join me for the next couple! As long as it remains fun I expect I'll be around for a while!

Naked Lady Dance Table - New Product Release!

Boo's Naked Lady Dance Table

Regular 1200L in Modify/Copy format. Special sale price of 800L!! Available in world on on the Marketplace!

In order to keep the Land Impact count down I have not linked all items together and instead put them in a rezzer you can use to position it. Altogether it comes to 38 prims (18 for table, 5 per chair) but because the chairs are not linked to the table you can easily replace them with your own if you wish.

The set is Modify so you can change the colors on the parts if you choose to, and don't worry if you mess something up! It only comes in a copy format so you can just rez another one!

I have tested the Dance Table with Henmations, A&M, Sinewave, S4D and AKEYO animations and they all work. Keep in mind though some dances will move off the space of the table just because of the way they are built. Some of those dances are meant for a dance floor not a table! Nothing I can do about that :)

It can be easily found right at the entrance of the store among the other new releases! But even if it wasn't, did you know you can easily find all my stuff on the Marketplace? You can search Boo's Bits and find me! Super easy!

That's all for today! Hope you enjoy!!

Guess who's back! With new stuff! - BOO IS!!!

Hi everyone!

Wow, you have no idea how nice it is to see so many people still in the VIP group after my long absence of products. You're all awesome, and specifically those of you who have had to put up with some wait times for service when you had issues due to my RL business... thank you!

But now let's get to the good fun stuff! It's Holiday season and I couldn't resist doing something fun this year!

I have 2 new product releases for you, both using some of that fancy MESH stuff! Disclaimer: I didn't make the MESH stuff... still trying to teach myself how to do that... they were created by other great SL merchants who allow them to be used by other merchants for their creations.

But before I get to the new releases I want to tell you about my December sale plans!

Every day of December (except Sundays because busy) until Christmas Eve I will be offering a Boo's Bits product for 50% - 70% off it's regular price! It'll only be available at the sale price for a single day so make sure you get it while you can. For some perspective... a 1500L item could be selling for as little as 450L!!! Whoh! I think I'm losing it!!

So watch for the sales announcements every day (except Sunday) and get yourself some good deals! Don't forget to share the notes with your friends too. I'd hate for them to miss such savings! Many of these sale products may be retired in the new year as well so his -could- be the last chance to get them at a good price!

On to the new products!

And when I say new I mean everything old is new again products! First up, the return of a Holiday standard but better, stronger and Meshier than before! (Is Meshier a word?

More Naughty Than Nice Sleigh 2013

That's right! The More Naughty than Nice Sleigh is back. This time made using mesh and sculpties, refined animations and poses and selling in both a copy and transfer version!

650L for the Transfer version. 1350L for the copy version!

Copy Version can be found here

Transfer Version can be found here

Also available in world at the Boo's Bits Main Store (link at bottom of this entry)

And for our second new release I am pleased to present to you the 5th version of our best selling product! Now with more MESH

Boo's Ultimate Lapdance Chair V5 - MESH Edition

138 Animations. 10 Land Impact. This new and improved version brings us up to date with the technology of Second Life, offering all of the things you liked about the first 4 versions, but with a nicer shell to hold it all in! Available in Copy and Transfer versions

And because I love you all I am releasing this at a Special Holiday price for 1 week only!

Transfer Regular price - 1550L | Sale Price - 800L 

Copy Regular Price - 3300L | Sale Price - 1500L

I mean seriously... you may as well buy the copy version!

Remember 1 week only! Then the price goes up!

We will start the special deals of the day on Monday December 2nd and the notices will be released through the Boo's Bits VIP group! So keep an eye out for them! Great savings this season!

And on a final note, last year I donated a portion of my sale income to a local charity in my city. I have decided to do the same thing again this year. This year I will be donating HALF of my income from Second Life products to Inn From The Cold, an organization in my city that works to help the homeless. (yes I know, I just revealed which city I live in by posting that... DON'T STALK ME!!)
