The Thrift Shop is a a FULL Sim Sales event hosted by Depraved Nation. Participating Designers place their products at the event for sale to consumers at a price reduced by 50% of it’s normal selling price. The Thrift Shop offers shoppers a large variety of items all in one place. In addition to having everything marked down by 50%, each participating store will be providing a new release that will also be marked down by 50%! Did I mention the TONS of Gachas available to play at the event?

While the content you display at this event is entirely up to each participating designer, it is highly recommended that you use different content than what you may have used during previous rounds of this event.
