Exchange or In Game? Where do you shop?

Just trying to get a general consensus of where you shop to see how it trends:) Thank you!

(Where you do *most* of your shopping - I realize you may look in both Exchange and in-game but which is most often?)

I usually shop in game but I like using marketplace for more specific items that I may not know if a story carries or not.

I rarely leave my home position for anything when in-world... I shop mostly on Marketplace and I can tell as a merchant that great part of my sales happen at Marketplace of derived from it (person picks up demo there and comes to the main shop).

I do at least 90% of my shopping on the Marketplace simply because I like the convenience of being able to text search and look through lots of items quickly. Sometimes I go to the inworld store of a vendor I have found on the Marketplace to make the actual purchases but generally not. Occasionally I also visit stores I like and know well just to see what is new.

99 % SL Exchange. Its easier, quicker, clearer when i want to buy something to use it instead of rezzing, walking and walking and walking, tping out, rezzing and walking and walking and so on.

Marketplace. More convenient, faster…

Which one is lag free?
Which one can I compare other creators stuff, which one can I sort by cheapest?

Favourite feature of the marketplace is finding an overblown priced item (eg sculptie) and then see another item SO very similar, for a 16th of the price!

If I know where to find a particular item I like going shopping for it. If I don't know who sells a particular thing then Marketplace is really the only option. I have in fact discovered several places in world through using Marketplace.

I have my favourite places to buy clothes, hair, skins, eyes, boats, jewelry, and so on, and go to them first. Only generally for more specialist items do I use Marketplace. And if I like what I get, I'll keep the LM that comes in the packet, for future reference.

I normally don't shop. I've got everything I really need now, but if my FC (who is a shopaholic) tells me about something cool, I'll have her TP me to her location. I hate shopping.

Marketplace, always. I sometimes start there, see if anything interests me then go to the shop in game, but I buy almost everything from the Marketplace.
