Yes, the Garindan location of Kouse’s Sanctum is no more. On May 1st, a brand new sister location will be unvieled, though it is very easy to peek in now if you like. Serenity Sieyes and Malakh Giles have worked together to create a stunningly gorgeous build for the new Sanctum location (heart goes pitter pat) I adore these people. They are two of my favourite people in the entirety of SL, and I am so so thrilled that they’ve been such an instrumental part of this, and that they’ve created this wonderful build. If you aren’t yet familiar with their work, please please PLEASE visit the Avilion sims (but please follow the dress codes…) their builds are always a joy to behold.
The new store will feature a special fountain I’ve made as well.
I am most likely going to change this a bit (ie retexture and remove my sig KS) and put it for sale, I’ve already had a couple people say they would like copies. Lately I’ve been finding it’s a nice break from all the clothing to do other builds, like jewelry or the fountain, for example, so the store may end up carrying a larger variety of things in the future.
Anyway, there will be a lot going on in the Sanctum that son’t make it to this blog, so to keep up with all the news if you’re so inclined, please keep an eye out for the group notices!

My apologies for the silence on this blog lately, a ton of things have been happening in my SL and with regards to the Sanctum as well. Firstly, the new main store! Please update you LM’s if you haven’t already for the new SeaBreeze Oasis location. The Garindan location will not be there forever, so eventually those LMs will be out of date.
Many new things have been released, including new gowns, more Petite sized gowns for those gorgeous child sized AVs out there, and even a set of combat clothing (which many of you seem to love! 😀 )
The Serena Midnight group gift had been delivered (sent out April 15th) So if you missed it, look through past notices in the Kouse’s Sanctum group, you can’t miss it.
Now lovelies, pay attention. Want a gown designed just as you want it and named after you? Then do enter the Showcasing Contest! Capture Kouse’s Sanctum products in an image and submit it into this contest for the chance to have just that! And the custom gown is just one part of the grand prize. There are several prize packs to be won, please read over the notecard sent via group notice for all the details. ❤
Deadline for entry is Midnight SLT April 25th. Winners to be announced on the 17th. All participants will receive a thank you gift for entering. All entries will be displayed at the main store and/or at one of the sister stores unless you contact me expressly saying you wish to keep your entry private.
That’s all for now folks…the rest is in the notecards!
