I'm not a huge girly girl unless I'm having an occasional pink explosion. That being said, I love The Men's Department, a monthly event coordinated by Mikel Monk. Mikel has put together a showcase of high quality items that includes both avatar and decor items. All the designers do original work and the prices are never more than L$ 300. It;s the perfect place to familiarize oneself with some of the best creators that design with men in mind and fills a huge gap for the guys.
I am totally digging the boots from Trauermarsch boots from Deadwool. The set includes both rigged and unrigged versions and the rigged come in two sizes as well as 3 styles so they can adapt to different pant styles. This is so thoughtful as it is endlessly annoying when meshes don't play nice with each other. Bauwerk has 3 amazing arcade machines out. I adore the Second Life one and it comes with 9 unique poses, all of which are easily adjustable. Eleventh hour made some really interesting Tube Beer Tap that dispenses a beer or a cup for your cold one when you touch the tap. Second Spaces did great Ezra pieces that includes the table shown (resized for my purposes) and a cigar set that includes an ashtray and rotary dispenser. Nicely detailed decor items to add masculine touches to your home.
