Gameplay Notes: Assigning Favorite Colors

Around Town: Vicki’s Sweet Treats

I had a request or two to upload some pics of Victoria’s shop, so here it is:

Here it is, Vicki’s Sweet Treats. I built it myself. I wasn’t planning on making it so modern, but whatever.

I could’ve sworn that I had more pictures than this, but I didn’t. Next time I’m playing her business lot, I’ll get some more. And hopefully by then, her shop will be decorated as well. Her shop is ultra-bare!

But in the meantime, I am uploading Laurel Crossing’s tax return form, in an excel form.

Tax form? Excel? Run away!”
