Welcome to Ina-bean's 1k=1g shop! I am so glad to have you as a visitor.

Have you longed for an item that you just can't seem to afford? Does inflation get you down? If you answered yes, this is the thread for you!

What exactly is a 1k=1g shop?
It's a type of charity, only instead of handing out gold, we hand out items for a cost next to nothing! For example, let's say you want to buy an item for 15k. That's 15,000 gold. If you buy that item from here - it's will only cost 15 gold! Each 1000 only equals 1 gold here.

However, you can't just walk in and expect to be able to buy these items. While this threads main purpose is to donate to others, it is also here so you can have a nice 'home' to hang out at. It's here so you can make friends.

The more you come to chat, participate in contests, etc. - the more likely you are to be allowed to purchase an item from my shop!

In this thread, there are no warnings - nor are there 'blacklists'. It's very simple. If you break the rules, you will be permanently banned from this thread, and (depending on the rule broken) possibly reported. Follow the rules accordingly.

  • Follow Gaia's ToS.
  • Do not beg.
  • Do not ask for an item. We will ask you what item you would like to buy when the time is right.
  • Do not send a trade for an item unless we tell you to.
  • Do not stretch the page.
  • Do not quote the first page.
  • Do not ask me if you can buy an item. I ask you.
  • Do not argue. Keep drama out of this thread. If you have a problem with another user, let Ina-bean know, and she will handle it.
  • Bumping is okay if there is no one around, but if there are others posting in this thread - chat with them!
  • You may decide to keep the item you have won, or sell it. It's really up to you! As long as it helps you out on your quest.
  • Don't get upset just because you weren't chosen to buy an item, or didn't win a contest. You're time will come if you just stick around!

More rules will be added when necessary.

Q: What does 1k=1g mean?
A: It means that every 1000 in gold in the market place, equals to 1 gold in this thread. If an item is 10k in the market place, it only cost 10 gold here.

Q: How do I get a 1k=1g item?
A: Stay and chat! Participate in contest. Just show your enthusiasm to be a part of this thread. Every month I will choose the most deserving person/people to sell to.

Q: Can I buy more then one item?
A: Ofcourse you can, but one item at a time. If you continue to stick around after you buy an item, eventually I will choose you again.

On the 20th of every month, I will choose between 1-3 people who have been most active/deserving within the thread, and allow them to purchase something from the 1k=1g shop.

Once I've announced who I choose, they must randomize a number between 1 and 5. Whichever number they randomize determines which 'batch' they may buy from. For example, if a winner randomizes a 3 - they will get to buy an item from batch 3.

Once they've decided on an item, they may send me a trade with the title edited to show me which item they are going to buy along with the set amount of gold the shop is asking for. I will send them the item, and the trade is complete.

Easy enough, huh?
