HOC industries

So, I own quite a bit of clothing from these people on ANDI here. just recently the skirt has went missing, relogs, cache, tickets, ect. no skirt found. so I figure pop over into the group chat, find out whats up. unable to start chat. I dont have the ability o.O the hell.

sooo profile open on guu and profile does not mention the store. hm check classified, ah there ok, click that, land.... abandoned land on 4/28/16. so checked the marketplace and nada on there.

so this money I've put out to this person, now I'm unable to get replacements? really... so now, to not rant much, but seriously if you are going to say screw it and yank everything up and walk. put your items out either for free or 1$ something or another. if you have no intentions of supporting your customer base.

Guu Nishi gave plenty of warning, and even put everything up for sale at L$10 a pop before closing down. If you were actually a regular customer, you've have been in the group and known this.

SL is transitory and things can go missing and people leave and it's the nature of the beast.


Boom closed and the owner basically said everything was on sale until the land rent ran out and stuff got returned.

Exposure is closing and what is on MP will stay but she's not adding anything else to it.

People leave SL for all kinds of reasons all the time, stores clothes, stuff goes away etc. Maybe it would be cool if there were tons of notices sent out or the group was deleted or there was some option but this isnt the first time store and its contents left SL and it won't be the last.

Do you by any chance have a picture of the skirt? Stores often include the ad in the folder or box so the picture may still be in your inventory.
Someone here might have a suggestion for where you could get a similar style.

Even if you don't have a picture, a description would help.

Didn't HOC sell everything, 12 colors for like $.40 USD?

It is nice to see people still feel passionately about SL.

I didn't know HOC was gone, I thought they provided and important service to part of the population.

A quick search on the marketplace for mesh plaid skirt mini throws up a lot of very similar skirts, the most similar of which is this one: https://marketplace.secondlife.com/p...atible/5374679

Possibly you could add a belt? Anyway, it certainly seems like a very popular style. Good luck

Unfortunately I got that group notice just as I was turning in for the night, so I told myself "I'll check it out tomorrow".

Guess if I remembered.

So the owner of HOC is releasing all of their stuff as full perm.

Join the group for free (HOC Industries) and there's a box in the notices.

So if anyone ever wanted any of HOC Industries stuff now is the time to get it.

if i joined the groups for every shop i regularly shopped at, i'd not only have no room for anything else, i'd need far more group slots than are available.

Okay.. I'm curious and confused. When was this notice? I'm in the group on on more than one account and have received no such notice. I've checked my emails for anything I got while offline and nothing there. And as a previous poster mentioned there doesn't seem to have been anything for the past 14 days.

I know she made an announcement just after she'd closed down that this was something she was planning on doing, and I've been waiting for it since then, so it'll be somewhat frustrating if it's now turned out to be a blink and you missed it moment.

Any help on how we can get these now would be appreciated!

That's nice, but it was kind of required for HOC stuff, to get access to all the textures.

Well... I AM in the group (or rather other versions of me are) and I haven't had this notice about the textures.

So was the notice sent over 14 days ago now? The opportunity to get them has now gone? I'll admit I'm slightly fuming at the moment because I was waiting for this to happen since she announced she was going to do it!
