==== MISSION ====
The mission of The Whetmore Group is to provide our members with unique and affordable products related to their preferred Virtual Role Playing Lifestyles.
==== ABOUT US ====
The Whetmore Group is the parent company for the following Brands:
– Satanic Visions
– Halloween Horror Warehouse
– DeathStone Cemetery Collection
– The Christmas Wonderland Collection
– Creep Christmas
– Horror Animations
Our primary focus is Seasonal Decor items, mainly Halloween and Christmas. However, we also have a small line of Easter items and a moderate collection of Satanic Ritual items.
You can also find our products at our online Marketplace at https://marketplace.secondlife.com/stores/87267
We incorporate the CasperVend retail system for our product line and most of our products can be viewed by rezzing them on our Holo Vendors. We recommend that you view our products so that you can make an informed decision prior to purchasing.
PLEASE NOTE: MANY OF MY OLDER ITEMS CONTAIN AN UNPACKING SCRIPT THAT IS BUGGED FOR SOME USERS AND THE BOX APPEARS TO BE EMPTY EXCEPT FOR A NOTECARD. REST ASSURED THAT THE ITEM IS IN THE BOX. SIMPLY RIGHT CLICK THE ITEM AND OPEN THE CONTENTS TAB TO EXTRACT THE ITEM INTO YOUR INVENTORY.
==== SEASONAL & CHARITABLE HUNTS ====
The Whetmore Group regularly participates Hunts and invites organizers to contact Farthington Whetmore with invitations and requests. Please Note that WE WILL NOT provide copy/Trans items thus participation in any Hunt requires Farthington Whetmore to place Hunt items.
==== SEASONAL & CHARITABLE FAIRS ====
The Whetmore Group regularly participates Fairs and invites organizers to contact Farthington Whetmore with invitations and requests. We are also willing to provide decor items and decorating services in exchange for brand presentation and rental tier discounts.
==== GROUP MEMBERSHIP ====
THE WHETMORE GROUP members are eligible for a 10% discount on our in-game store product vendors and have limited access our interactive features. Group members spending 1000L$ will be eligible for an additional 10% discount from our vendor purchases meaning that group members would get a 20% discount! L$500 membership fee is required. (Regretfully this his new fee has been implemented as a result of an alarming number of people who had simply joined the group to exploit the discount then quit! The membership discount tier is a reward for your brand loyalty and not an instant perk.)
!!!! To access any Lucky Letter Boards and other interactive elements that may be available, our group tag must be active!!!
Member discount vendors will have two amount options when purchasing an item, group members should select the lower discount price. However, certain vendor may only offer a one button option, so the membership discount will be automatically refunded upon purchase.
==== GIFT CARDS ====
Non TWG members can now purchase Gift Cards for a 5% savings on the card value.
