Alrighty! So this is a pretty informational post that I have for you at the moment.
For those of you unaware, Aikea Rieko’s (The Plastik’s owner/creator) flickr updated all of us flickr stalkers with some very sad news. You can read about it here, but basically, her hard drive had an accident and now all of her hard work that she has done over time is gone unless she can raise the money to fix the hard drive. Unfortunately, this is a very delicate and thus expensive process. Because it is such, she has put everything in her store on sale at a very generously discounted price in the hopes that it will generate some business and help her raise the money.
Now, many of you may know that I am literally a plastik-o-holic. It has been one of my very favorite stores for over 2 years in SL. I think that Aikea is a magnificent and brilliant creator, and I am trying to publicize this sale as much as humanly possible. Please, please go to Plastik and shop to your heart’s content. For those of you who don’t feel like Plastik is for you but want to donate, I am certain that Aikea would be very grateful for any sort of donation you could make to her, also. It would be an honest-to-god tragedy to lose a creator as talented as she. So this blog is dedicated to her and her store.
