This is a new mesh, and means that it's a brand new self contained object that usually does not require a specific Expansion pack (although this is possible depending on the type). It may have Recolours hosted on MTS - check below the description for more information.
Picked Upload! This is a picked upload! It showcases some of the best talent and creativity available on MTS and in the community.
I like a bit more realism in my game, I like sims to be able to buy stuff from the store, without it having to be an owned store. So today I bring you shop displays, cloned from BV souvenir displays (and therefore require BV to work).

These displays sell MLC's Christmas garlands and wreath and the triple candle from her Candle in the Window set. You will have to download these in order for the displays to work, as they call her original objects, not a remade version.

There are two different shelves, one for the garlands and one for the wreath and candles. Each shelf has 3 recolors.
The displays themselves can sit on a counter as well, like usual. The wreath display obviously looks odd just hovering in the air, but you can do it if you wish

Once you have them in a store (it can be any hood, does not have to be a vacation hood like the original souvenir displays), just send your sim to the store and buy what you want.

Once your sim is back home, just open the inventory and decorate away!

The shelves can be found in Surfaces>Shelves for $50
The displays are in General>Misc for $2500
The displays are comm lot only

Polygon Counts:
box shelves 320
wreath shelves 340
box display 72
wreath display 1834 (sorry, I know it's a little high, but it is two wreaths)

Wow, wow wow! Great idea. The displays look absolutely perfect and MLC's wreaths and garland are my favorite - what's not to love? Nothing! You knocked this one out of the park - thanks for sharing them.

They look even better than I thought they would. Congratulations on a truly great creation. Such a great idea, and the items you choose are lovely! (Thanks MLC!) Love it, really must go build a Christmas-themed store now

Come here and let me hug you. Seriously!!! There are awesome and I'm not just saying that because the stands sell my stuff. The fact that you can use them anywhere is a big selling point.

*runs off to find Jones so she can be hugged and squished*

This is so amazing! I love the option to sell stuff in non-owned stores (and would love to see more displays like this that sell different things!). I didn't even know that it was possible to make something like this! And I use MLC's garlands, wreaths and candles a lot in my game :-) Thank you for making and sharing these, I'm so excited right now :-D

This looks awesome! I really like the idea of the objects being purchaseable from boxes on a shelf instead of having them just placed on an OFB shelf. It gives the game a bit more realism. Thanks! :D

Lovely! Yes, I'm really late to the Christmas party.. What can I say, my simmies enjoy the holidays all winter long
I know you intended this for use in regular community lots, but would it by any chance work in an owned business? Just asking, feel free to ignore. Here, have a santa cookie!

@solvor94, I don't know for certain, sorry. I didn't think to test it in an owned lot.

I was looking at this again Jones - it's a great upload. I was wondering if it would be possible for downloaders to add their own XMas stuff to the displays? I'm assuming it would be something in a BHav or BCON?

I no longer come over to MTS very often but if you would like to ask me a question then you can find me on tumblr or my own site tflc. TFLC has an archive of all my CC downloads.

Default Thanks

At first I didn't knew I need to download the objects that it sells separately. So any time I did the action of "buy" nothing happened.
After I downloaded the Christmas garlands and wreath and the triple candle from her Candle in the Window set it started to work as it should be!

Are there any more shop display racks that works and doesn't need OFB owner?
