Construction is near completion on Baratia Island - what will be the latest and most captivating destination for shopping, socializing and event hosting in SL! To prepare for a grand opening during the Halloween season, we are offering mall shops with 100 prims for L$1 per week until November 5, 2012. After that date the shops will rent for L$400 per week.
Based on a tropical theme and built in a neo-colonial style, we offer 24 shops set along broad avenues interspersed with attractive landscaping, water features and surrounded by mountainous islands, beaches, reefs and waves so that every line-of-sight offers tremendous views. The shops are centered around the main in-world store of Atia Creations and share the main mall space with three venues suitable for everything from intimate gatherings to large formal events:
- Bard’s Paradise: An expansive and well-appointed Jazz/Romance club equipped for dancing to DJ’s or enjoying live performances, with food, drink and games.
- The Patio: An open air pavilion for less formal gatherings of any kind and purpose
- Atia’s Garden: An ever-changing garden attraction suitable for quiet luau’s or large garden weddings and everything in between.
Down at the water’s edge you’ll find Bard’s Beach - where you can dance on the sand or in the shallows, nap in large hammocks cozy for two, play beach volleyball or fish - and no one in the mall will be the wiser to your seaside carousing.
We are offering the store rentals for this token price to compensate the merchants who join us in this adventure - it will be awhile before we can begin attracting sufficient visitors to make your investment in time and money worthwhile in sales and customer interest. We would like to have all our shops full by the time we’re ready to open, and so the almost-free rental is hoped to induce those who like our island and our plans for the future to sign up while we complete our building and prepare our marketing and events.
The stores are ready for rental now and each has a rental box active. You can click a box to get our rental policy notecard before you rent. Then if you find one you like, simply pay the box (1-to-4 weeks) and you will be automatically invited to our merchants group and can begin laying out prims.
In any case, do please drop in sometime soon and take a look around. If you have any questions or comments, you can make them here in this thread, contact me by forum PM or in-world.

Happy I am to once again announce a new member of the Baratia family - Tribe 25
Alexxa & Driftwood Miles introduce to the Baratia Island Mall quality mesh footwear (rigged and non rigged) under their fashion brand Tribe 25. From Punk Biker Boots to Beach Sandals find their latest creations here.
Tribe 25 is an established brand in Second Life. Owned by Driftwood Miles & Alexxa Despres it has been around since 2006. But is more familiarly known for its Themed Estate, Tribe Islands. However the fashion side of the brand has been in existence for a similar period of time, although it was very much viewed as a sideline. Since the introduction of Mesh, Tribe have made the decision to expand their Fashion Brand. The recent launch of Tribes Rebel Boots and BG’s Clogs has really pushed Tribe forward in establishing itself as a quality brand.
I'm happy again to welcome another merchant to our island - Alli & Ali Designs

Two New Welcomes - Susanti Creations & Bablyluv Boutique
I'm excited to announce that two new merchants joined our ranks yesterday!
First, Susanti Creations
My name is Nit Susanti and I make complete outfits for kids & adults. Most of my outfits include a doll with hold pose wearing matching slippers like your avatar. Slippers have paw prints when you walk and emitting colorful hearts & particles that matches the outfit.
Babyluv Lane makes full perm stockings, gloves, spike accessories and other items to enhance outfits. She also sells personal packs to those who are not builders/creators in SL. Her line of offerings is large and varied and we're glad to have her join us in the mall!
Sigh. A friend of mine from long ago has been trying to convince me to get back in the "game" as it were. I'd have to learn mesh...
Maybe you'd have to...maybe you wouldn't. There is still lots of good stuff out there that is not mesh. I don't know what you made before, but if you've a mind to, then you should. If not, then while I'm sure your friend meant well you shouldn't do so if it doesn't "blow up your skirt"
This is the first time in more than four years of SL that Atia and I have really decided to dive in head first. Really get "into the game". It's expensive as hell and time consuming beyond all reasonable proportion, but we've really gotten the bug, so we're going for it. I read threads about SL being dead here all the time, and maybe that's true. But for now, we're going for it because it is giving us something engaging and exciting, both individually and together.
It ain't the end-all-be-all, but if you've a mind to play...come play with us
We are so proud and happy to announce that long time jewelry maker Jake Kearny has joined us her on Baratia Island - renting three stores to hold and display his vast collection of fine jewelry for all who visit us!
