I'd love to get my hands on the countertops which seem to have been associated with the Urban event. The ones I keep seeing in Architect homes with the lights above them. Also those cool rugs which look like they're covered in water molecules :D That'd go great in my scientist's home office.

Here are the pics of items from the urban furniture event. The counters with the lights above them are from the urban furniture event (Urban Wood Light Counter and Urban Wood White Counter).

I'm not sure which rug you are referring to, though. Maybe the Navy Circles or Blue Circles rugs? The Blue Circles can be unlocked in the marketplace events. The Navy Circles are from the Designer Rug event.

I don't know how far along you are in the Country Homestead event but if you'd like to see them the pics for the items in this event can be found here.

The Tan Circles rug looks like the one. :)

I'd post an image of the home office I want it to go in, but can't seem to upload images as I'm using a mobile device and I keep getting an HTTP error when I try.

I've never been very successful with Marketplace events. I have trouble getting together enough resources. I might not be doing something right, in both my Hospital and Police Station (haven't built the movie studio) I have my specialists ranking up to the point that rooms become available for unlock and people come in wanting to use those rooms, but I have nowhere near enough resources to unlock those rooms so those people are just loitering for shift after shift, gumming up the works.

In any case, hope the event comes back.

I have finished all my marketplace events by tokens..and a little help from workplace resources. I have extra 6 sims which are not specific to any profession. I send them to work at the workplace where marketplace event is going on. So they are always unspecialised at that workplace and therefore customers always ask for basic 3 workstation. And I get courier guys regularly to achieve goals faster.
In case of a profession specific event e.g. hospital event, all 6 sims go to work at hospital(2 at a time). This also helps me replenish resources which are exhausted during the event.

I'm so frustrated with the repeats on this hobby... I have 11 sims working on this, and in a 5 hour 'shift' all 11 sims have produced a total of 3 items.

Has any of your Sims reached level 6 on the hobby before? If not that's the reason why you can't collect more items. Make sure you level one sim up to level six.

I have a sim at Level 6. I've collected 2 of the packs, but I get nothing but repeats every 5 hours. I've just collected the overnight "quick Practice" and all 11 sims got the same 2 items (weird ornament and ragtime runaway). For a 5 hour construction you'd think you'd get at least some variety of items with 11 sims. It is maddening.

I think it's been mentioned before, and maybe it won't help you, but thought I would suggest something that helped me.

I had my sims grouped in one or two houses for convenience. Which is ok to do. But I'd tap on them quickly, one after another, which might have been a problem. I kept getting the exact same item for multiple sims.

So I followed a suggestion read here on the forum and tapped one at a time, letting each complete before tapping the next one. It was still difficult to fill the grid but I didn't get as many duplicates in the same house and it did seem to help fill the grid faster.

Good luck!

I have 7 sims at one house, 3 at the Rec Center, and one at a neighbour. I always select one at a time (and re-start the sim before selecting the next one). Another 5 hour shift, and another round of Weird ornaments, and this time repeats of Pine Oakey. All I wanted was the floors, I don't see that happening with all these repeats!

I'm having the same problem. I have 10 sims on this. I unlocked 3 furniture packs in the first few days, but over the last 30+ hours, I have had nothing be repeats. I know things can change quickly, but this is very frustrating.
