My favorite is Cross Stitch simply because it incorporates player ideas biggrin

It's nice to see fresh ideas and new things, because everyone has different ways they see and different things they want, and it really adds to a more unique overall style for Gaia.

I think a new name is a great idea!

My favorite shop is the new Cross Stitch because it showcases Gaians artistic abilities.

My favorite is Barton Boutique because, it was the first store I shopped at when I started in 07, and it has all of the old original items and nothing new is really in it, and I love it, it's like a peace of originality, and it makes me happy to remember Gaia back then because the people were so much nicer! gonk

My favourite shop is Durem Depot! It has the hippest clothes and has the most stuff kids nowadays would wear! Even as an adult I just wish I could wear some of those outfits because they're so cool! On top of that Moira is the best NPC. She has a great attitude and a look that is just as smashing. I love Durem Depot! heart

Please keep H R Wesley the way it is!

But my favorite shop right now is probably Cross Stitch, because it has unique items that are designed by fellow Gaians. I absolutely love the new animal hats. heart
I personally like durem depot the most;
Simply because the items there are most similar to my normal everyday wear in reality. c:

I guess Salon Durem is my favorite shop, because you can change your hairsyle and eyes to whatever you decide. Also there are many colors and styles to choose from !

I totally love Cross Stitch.
They have the CUTEST clothing and accesories!
And what's best is that they're made my our fellow gaians.

The designers must feel good seeing their idea in the shop.
