Social Commentary - I hate (love?) gachas

First of all, this "rant" is not about Art Dummy, which is one of my favorite designers and oldest decorating go-to stores.  This is about the dreaded gacha.  I'm not the first to complain, nor will I be the last - but I'm going to have my say.  In general, I avoid gacha events unless there is something I can't live without.

In the September, 2014 round of The Arcade, Art Dummy had this adorable set called Simple Things.  The desks were beautiful, but I was especially crazy to get a copy of the RARE Lemon Branches.  Each hit at the gacha machine was $25 L

I waited a week to make my first visit.  By the time I finally got one copy of the Lemon Branches, I had purchased 30+ desks @ $25 L each.  So that one cost me approximately $775 L .

I went to yard sales, gacha sales and rummage sales to look for an after-market copy of the Lemon Branches, but couldn't find one, so last week, I went back to The Arcade to try my luck.

I got another 36 desk, 4 RARE shelves with decor, and another copy of the Lemon Branches.  The second copy of the Lemon Branches cost me $1,025 L.

What the hell do I do with 66 desks?  

Since I had deleted the first 30+ desk, I took the new 36 desks and opened the School for Suckers.  I linked them all together so they won't eat into my inventory count.

The Admissions Department is now accepting new students and the school offers financial aid.

Show some love for Art Dummy!
