Present playing day (because Uncertainty is supposed to take place a few years ago):
One of the shops that I have is simply called Bonnie's. It's a clothing shop that sells off the rack and home made items.
The plus side of this is that I can send sims shopping, such as this mysterious sim which I sent out for a wedding gown.
First I had her try it on to make sure that it looked good.
Then she spoke with Bonnie to tell her exactly what she wanted. Bonnie looks so excited, doesn't she?
So Bonnie set to work in the back room making the gown while her customers waited in line. (They weren't happy with the wait, but then I have a hack that won't allow them to throw their bags down.)
When Bonnie was finished, she wrapped the dress and gave it to her customer.
The customer then went into the back room, where Monique's computer is set up for such occasions, and she transfered $5,000 to Bonnie.
And the transaction was done!
Bonnie runs the shop well when I have sims visit. She suggestive sells, chats with customers, rings up quickly, and, the cutest thing to me, she sews when she isn't doing anything else.
I found out during this transaction that she's making pot holders like mad! (I watched her complete another one last night when I sent some other sims for a visit.)
This is the face she made when I told her to scrap her pot holder so that she could start right away on the dress. Gah, she's so adorable!
