Looking through the items just now, I noticed that one of the rabbit holes (the grocery store, I assume) is called Simsgon Alley and there is a statue that very much resembles a Dementor so it looks like there might be a few Harry Potter references in this town! I think the name could be linked as well because there is a place in Harry Potter called Godric's Hollow.

Hmm perhaps a toy store, I wonder if there will be a toy makers bench? but then I guess we sort of have that with inventing. Nothing too creepy though I hope, clowns freak me out and that jack in the box face is close enough to making me shudder, I have a hard enough time looking at anybody who got Tragic clowned by a Llama transporter  :-[

I got the strong feeling too that it was perfect for Harry Potter, and the Simagon Alley means it couldn't possibly be an accident! I am very excited to say the least.

Well, the thing is, with the new register anyone could make a toy store, or any other kind of store. I expect there to at least be a jack-in-the-box, and probably more.

If I buy a $60.00 Simpoint bundle today, will I be able to use some of those simpoints to buy Midnight Hollow?  or do I need to wait and buy the Midnight Hollow simpoint package?  Does that make sense?  I think with Monte Vista and Dragon Valley you had to buy the Bundle that included the world.  I only have $60.00 to spend...not $103.50.  So I need to do this right.

Midnight hollow will primarily be sold for simpoints, buying it with a simpoint bundle just gives you access to a few extra clothing items, I believe. Some correct me if I am wrong.

Oh yes I understand that, I was thinking more along the lines of how it worked in the last game, where you had benches a little like the inventors bench we have now to make unique items for sale, like the toys, robots and florist things, the jack in the box just put that in mind as it was one of the things you could make, it's fun running a store but it's nice to be able to craft what you put in it, but I guess we can do that with all those little metal toys inventors make, better than just giving them to the consignment store at least.

I've never ever got excited over a new town! THIS ONE I AM!! I love Moonlight Falls, so this fits perfectly! My Sims' lives have always been plain jane. I've never really done anything diverse & exciting, so I'm willing to buy it! I love couture(?) fashion & living, so WOOP! WOOP! I know the Specters are returning.... maybe some Goths? Hmm...  ;)

I understand what you mean. Because they have those items now available in a simpoint bundle, I would think that the town would be available just for the simpoints. I think they would have a lot of angry people on their hands if they released this simpoints bundle now and then in 2 weeks time say oh, you have to buy a simpoint bundle to get Midnight Hollows. That being said, I'm still going to wait for the release date before I buy my bundle of points.

Also, there is going to be a live SimTalk next Tuesday, September 17, 2013.  I'm sure there will be something about Midnight Hollow on that talk Caterina, and hopefully there will be some cleanup of the store entry.

Last night I was thinking of some things that put a damper on things just a little. For one, there seems to be no way to sell wall decorations - paintings, drawings, etc., because everything to sell has to be on a rug or pedestal or shelf, etc. I can understand though why they couldn't put something for wall decorations - there is no item that can go underneath. Another thing I am wondering, is how it will work in game - will townies/NPCs come to the shop? How many of them? 1 a day, or 50 a day? The answer to that could make or break this whole thing.

Harry Potter AND Open For Business! That breaks it! I'm totally begging my parents for this! (Wait, $60? That's expensive...)(EDIT: If I don't care for a whopping 3 CAS pieces, I can get it for as little as $20)

I was wondering about wall decorations too Pally. I guess for paintings, you could have them on the easel and place the easel on a rug and sell them together. Maybe there is something else for wall items that they just haven't mentioned.
As to who and how many will shop, in Open For Business, it was townies and NPC's that came and the number would vary. it may be similar with this Savvy Seller set.

Yeah, I'm just thinking that it might be different because these are just items added to the game - they're not included with an expansion that actually changes game mechanics - so I'm not sure how they plan to attract customers. But I'm no expert, just worrying for nothing lol.
I like your easel idea!

I'm so excited for this town. My want list is fast growing & I have it in order of what to buy next £ this hat jumped to the top of my list. I just recently bought Supernatural and although I've added some of the items to IP & Pets (also new) I haven't played Supernatural as a separate game yet so I'm thinking it might mix well with this new town. And I love the shops & we'll be able to add them to any if our other games. Love it.

Thanks EA. thought they might have given up on Sims 3 now, but obviously not. Yay!

Not quite yet anyway.  They are releasing one more expansion pack due out October 22.  After that, I imagine they'll start wrapping things up.  Even so, I would expect the Sims 3 Store to remain open for a time.  I remember that they didn't close the Sims 2 Store until well after Sims 3 started.

Why should they close the store anyways? People will still keep playing TS3 and they will keep buying items from the store and uploading things on the exchange.

I think it's that it will still be there to buy things from, but they won't be releasing new items, towns, etc. Hopefully they'll allow the same simpoints, AKA the ones we have currently, to be used in the sims 4 store, in other words, be able to transfer them over.

I respect your opinion, but hmmm.. I kinda wonder/ doubt they'll do that. I can bet my hat that Simpoints, Eps, SPs, ect. Are gonna cost a bit more for TS4. I mean TS3 cost $50 when it was released (correct me if I'm wrong) and TS4 preorder is $70-80! Off topic, but yeah.

I think that this world will work bad because of overstuffed townies inventory after buying many items from Savvy Seller's Collection . After several sim days the game will begin to lag... ~( Just my opinion)~.   I really hope that I'm wrong and it will work fine. Midnight Hollow looks promising .  :)

Townies don't keep the gifts your sims gives them in their inventories, so I think buying might work the same way. In that case there wouldn't be any lagging problems because of the purchases.

They don't keep the items given????? That is so exasperating! I have been trying to get my sims to give stuff to other families - as a way of transferring them - but if that doesn't work, then I fail to see the whole point of gift giving! I really hope these items sold in these shops will STAY in the townie's inventories, so when I go to play those townies, I can put said bought items on display in their homes!

     I am SO excited about this world and the Savvy Seller's Collection.  I did not play Sims 2 on PC so I missed out on Open For Business.  In the Live Broadcast, they said that you could live on the same lot as your store.  I am thinking that you could set up a Bake Sale table or vegetable stand and try to sell those items to your customers.  I am planning to spend some of my birthday money on the $60 Simpoint Bundle so I will have an extra 3550 sim points to spend at the store.  I was browsing the store just now and saw all the Premium Content I already own.  I build a shop that sells only Premium Content.  It might remind me to use it some time.  I can't wait to see all of the shops that the forum builders will be building.

     I can't wait to see all of the new interactions that come with the new toys that you can make with the toy machine at the new venue.  The baby mat sounds adorable.

I'm really looking forward to seeing a demo of that baby mat thing.  Maybe it'll make burritos a smidge less boring?
