I decided to create this after having trouble finding a combined consignment and elixir shop to download for Isla Paradiso. I wanted to share this with anyone who is also looking for something similar. I only used items from Island Paradise, Ambitions, and Supernatural.

Lot Size: 30x20
Cost: $82,116 ($37,539 Unfurnished)
NO CC
NO Store Content

EPs required: Island Paradise, Ambitions, Supernatural

Downstairs - Consignment (Pawn) Shop
Upstairs - Elixir Shop (with outside access as well)

Lot was created at 16 Scuba Street next to Cruzita's Groceries and Diner and Fortunate Fishing
Set the empty lot to "Consignment Store" and then place. ("Elixir Shop" or "Visitors Allowed" should work as well, but these 2 options have not yet been tested to see if both registers will work).


I did test to make sure both registers were working properly. Please be aware that when you first place the lot, the stores may take a minute to open. For me, the consignment store took about 2 sim hours to open and the elixir store took about 3 to 5 sim hours to open. I believe the consignment store is opened from 9:30 am to 6 pm and the elixir shop stays open 24 hours a day.


Thanks for downloading and enjoy!

Lot Size: 3x2
Lot Price: $82,116

Don't forget to Thank the creator after downloading! Use the Thanks button located above the screenshots above.
Quick Guide:

1. Click the file listed on the Files tab to download the file to your computer.
2. Extract the zip, rar, or 7z file.
2. Select the .sims3pack file you got from extracting.
3. Cut and paste it into your Documents\Electronic Arts\The Sims 3\Downloads folder. If you do not have this folder yet, it is recommended that you open the game and then close it again so that this folder will be automatically created. Then you can place the .sims3pack into your Downloads folder.
5. Load the game's Launcher, and click on the Downloads tab. Select the house icon, find the lot in the list, and tick the box next to it. Then press the Install button below the list.
6. Wait for the installer to load, and it will install the lot to the game. You will get a message letting you know when it's done.
7. Run the game, and find your lot in Edit Town, in the premade lots bin.

Extracting from RAR, ZIP, or 7z: You will need a special program for this. For Windows, we recommend 7-Zip and for Mac OSX, we recommend Keka. Both are free and safe to use.

HA! That's a great idea! I just moved one of my main magical families from Moonlight Falls to the island. This blends in perfectly. Thanks.

I agree - your lot looks very "Island" and will be a nice addition to that world. Thanks!

I'm pretty tempted to re-download Ambitions just for the sake of downloading this. It's beautiful. @___@

THANK YOU, some of the standard lots look so weirdly out of place in Isla Paradiso, especially on that super cosy secondary island. Definitely an enrichment for the place.

csg5vbe3argf - When you are in edit town mode, click on the icon for the space you want to put it and select either pawn, elixir or visitors allowed. You should be able to place the lot.

I have questions to ask you about.
If I want to place this lot, I have to first place empty community lot, right?
Then what type should I use for it?


I set the empty lot to "Consignment Store" before placing the shop, but like porkypine said, you can also set it to Elixir Shop or Visitors Allowed (although I haven't tested to see if both registers would work on these 2 options, but it should work). Sorry for the delayed response, but hope this helps

This was so missed in the original Island Paradise world. Why didn't EA create a new matching venue style for it? So glad you did ...and this going in my world to replace the bland/generic one that's there. Thanks!

Consignment is open from 9 to 6:30? Is there a mod out there that can make consignment stores open 24/7? Thanks for this mod.

That's a good question! I'm not sure because I don't use mods much. When I am looking for a mod I usually check either this site or check to see if Twallan has any mods (nraas.wikispaces.com). Sorry I couldn't be more helpful

This looks really great! I came to MTS today looking for Elixir stores to download as I work on filling all the lots in Island Paradiso (and ensure I have every type of lot possible). At first glance I admit I thought it a little garish as I'm used to Sunset Valley, then realized how well it will fit with the bright island life. I'm going to replace the standard consignment store which I had put in 15 Scuba street with this one (and that's an extra lot free for something else

This is great. Wanted to play a witch in the islands and did not like how out of place the normal shop was. :)

Thanks. I used this lot in many of my worlds not only the Island Theme ones. It is one of my favorite lots.

Thank you for the feedback and compliments! I am glad you all enjoy it and find it useful for your sims. I may play around with it once I re-install my EPs on this laptop to make sure everything is still working as it should. Once again, thanks!

This lot looks great! You did a much better job than I did at creating an island cosignment shop and you even integrated the potion shop. This is going into my game for sure!
