Congrats RaiaDraconis!  Such a lovely market.  This was a fun contest with such a tight budget!  Amazing entries from everyone.  As always I'm open to comments on my entry.

Ladybug53 - I liked the autumnal feel to your market.  Your use of fencing and flowersboxes was great, and I love the bench/chess/flowers in the centre of the square.  Really nice build.

Gogowars329 - I was impressed with how very Lucky Palms your market felt.  A very creative use of building shapes and shells turned out something that fit so well in its intended world.  Very nice work putting together a mish-mash of chairs and items to give it a flea market/used goods sort of vibe.

Congratulations to you, Raia. I thought your build was very pretty. The cherry trees everywhere looked so peaceful.

I am open to comments on my build as well. It was my first time entering a building contest! Very intimidating but fun.

Thank you samoht04, Lilygirl and Ausette for this awesome challenge. I started 4 builds, tore my hair out and didn't manage to finish a single one - community lots just isn't my thing, but thanks to all the great builders in our community I don't have to be. I can just download all these great entries and my sims can shop till they drop. My only problem is where to put them...

@ladybug- I liked how you used the fence to border the lot. The entrance was great and I liked how you included both eating contests. Also, the whole lot had a very clean and crisp feel but with warm colors. Over all a great build!

@Gogo - your market was the closest to what I myself was trying to build - it's like we were sharing a mind ::) I love the hap dash feel of it, of sims just coming in and setting up their stall for the day. I think the roof of the stage is great. And I love the miss-matched feel of it all!

@Vinyl- I think you had a great story for your lot, and the picture with the "isicles" really sold me on it. I would be perfect to visit in winter. Your stage looks great with that ornate roof, it really is the main focus of the lot.

@omradellarosa- My favorite part about your lot is the bar seating around the Batista counter. That was a clever.

@ Vinyl - Your entry just blew me away . I love all the amazing work you've put into your roofs . I found it was brilliant . Your winter scene is just spectacular . Love your stage area . Great entry !  :)

@ ombradellarosa - Your entry looks just like the one in my neighborhood by the shore . I love all the variety of booths you have for everyone to enjoy . Great entry !  :)

Thanks so much. This was a lot of fun and a great excuse to go crazy with trees. Can you tell I've been working on landscaping? :P

@ Gogowars - I loved your build! Like Vinyl said, it fit in with Lucky Palms perfectly, like it just belongs there with the rest of the buildings.

@ Ladybug - The simple, clean lines and symmetrical nature of your build were very striking. I greatly enjoyed the simplicity of it all.

@ Vinyl - Your entry was just plain fun. The roof design was very eye-catching, and believe me, if I had the other expansions, I would be downloading this one even for that part alone. ;)

@ ombradellarosa - Yours reminded me so much of a flea market that I once went to as a child. And your description I believe says it all--the simplicity really is part of its charm.
