@sharkloverplaye The seasonal sets are being temporarily vaulted and will return for limited periods of time during the appropriate period.

Rincon Del Simmer - Thanks Andrwessx - has noticed that many of the Free Sims 3 Store Content has been abruptly removed. There are still five free sets left in the Holiday Gifts section, but many of the festive/free sets have been removed.
These sets can still be found in your purchase history, however it’s good idea to save backups of your downloads just in case. The pictured sets below are all that is left, but you can check our Free Content List to see that plenty free sets have been removed. (Some Car Sets also)
