Hold on to your Lindens!!!(Freebies).

I came across a long forgotten folder with some clothes in it from Yasum Design and blimey they were a blast from the past and then I came across a coat/dress which was pretty darn good.  So I TPed over and of course, as soon as I went to the Group Gift rooms I remember this place well.

90% of the gifts are very dated, lots of prim clothing, system layers, sculpties and flexi bits.  When you try this stuff on and compare it to the mesh we all know well you will see how far fashion has come in all these years.  I’m NOT being mean about all the gifts and there are LOADS of them both a men and women’s dept and although I couldn’t find the coat/dress combo I first mentioned there are mesh items and some actually interesting stuff in there and I had a lot of fun trying the old stuff on and then there is this.

A hanging chair which for a whole dept full of clothing was most surprising and it’s excellent. Only 3 Prims only and a really nice hud of 6 cushion colours.

The LM I will give you takes you to a room and in the centre is the TP to all the different dept, I of course just checked out the GG room but I might just check out all the other dept to see what sort of clothes this shop sells now and not the old stuff of the past.  There is also a men’s freebie dept as well, next to the ladies.  BUT you won’t find this chair actually in the gift rooms it and some other gifts are in the cute rabbit head bags just outside the door.  Don’t panic when you TP as the TP places you in front of a wall in a narrow corridor so for a little while you may thing you’re in a cube/wall etc but just turn around and go down the short corridor. Honestly, when you get there it’s easy to see what I mean.

I don’t want you to spend anywhere else today because I’ve just received a note from Mina Nakamura about an amazing offer and that will be my next post so hold on to your hats n lindens.

PS I’ve just remembered one of the other gifts in the bunny bags is a rather good pair of retro sunglasses with a bright bold hud and I’ve already popped them into my “glasses” folder.

Old, New, Cheap and Free and no I’m not talking about me! (Freebies, GG’s etc)

A whole mix of goodies which is going to make your SL home lovely and not hurt your pocket.

First is the lounging chair, male/female and couple poses.  Low primmed, cute and a FREE gift and although it’s a “Shutter field” gift you have to join the Godrics Hollow Group, which is free but the Shutter field is not but more about that later.  Since this smaller shop isn’t in the main Shutter Field shop once I’d grabbed I TPed over to check out the larger main shop.

The Shutter Field group only costs 20Lds to join and there is not only so many of the old GG’s but some new to me ones plus also some very discounted items and in this picture you can see some of everything.

I’ve shown you the food tray before, this one is the wine and steak and I think the other one is beer n burger but the game board is new.  You get 2 versions this rustic one and a beach one.

The flowers in vases are super GG’s but I went crazy for all of 35Lds and bought this small side/coffee table and yes of course I checked and it’s editable.

Another new to me GG is this coffee shelf.

Definitely not new but just so damned good they deserved to be reblogged again and again and again until Faith screams at me to “STOP”.  2 sets of planters, one inc the 2 barrels and the other the 2 metal ones and the hanging one.  Just great home and garden decor and yes, of course, editable if you really want to

I just zoomed in for a close-up.

As always popping over to Shutter Field has made my Sunday as I was eyeing up something which just wasn’t so great but I didn’t want to miss posting something on a Sunday so to find and refind these brill things means I can now log off with peace of mind and enjoy my lunch.

Have a great day and I will see ya’s tomorrow.

PS. Hunger has made me forget a few things, firstly to pick up the chair you will have to be an adult to get into that sim, secondly Shutter Feild is a row of small shops but all are stocked with Shutter Field items, the last shop has the GG’s and discounts but it also shares the sim with a similar shop so if the LM doesn’t take you to the SF Shop just walk or fly over.  Honestly easy to understand when you get there and thirdly MORE Grou Gifts are there I’m only showing you a few of them so if none of these look of any interest to you make sure to still go as there maybe something else or of course you could splash the cash because Shutter Field has some really nice stuff and I do have OMG stuff I’ve paid Lindens for!

Have a drink on me, cos I am FREE.

I would have sworn DRD (Death Row Designs) was a paid for group and maybe there is a VIP Group which is but what did find was some creepy decor items for the Free DRD Group.

xxxwitchuse

The chair comes with 2 wearable brollies, I’m not showing you them because I’m taking this picture completely nekkid lol.  Lovely holely brollies which is keeping in the theme of this “Acid Rain Stadium Chair”

xxxwitchuse4

Just look at the details! I have used some camera tricks as my piccies turned out so dark you couldn’t see the details as clearly as I had wanted but DRD is a quality shop.  You will probably know them more from The Arcade Gacha event but they have a big shop and it’s been a long time since I had a wander around. So once back in world I’ll be putting some keks on, clothes, and popping back for a better look around.

xxxwitchuse2

This table is another gift, comes all linked and click the tray to get a cup of poison to slurp.  A pretty decent drinking AO in this I have to say.  Drinking movements in SL are still pretty basic but this is one of the best.

Although low in prims it’s nice to see that you also get the tea tray on its own as another gift.  Exactly the same and gives you the same little drinkie.

xxxwitchuse5

The 2 other gifts is a box of rugs one is for the normal group and the other one is an old VIP group which is why I believe there is a 2 group system.  If this is the quality of the Free group I wonder what you get if you pay to join?

A load of Junk (Freebies).

By now everyone who loves quality will know that Junk has not only opened a new shop on a new sim BUT there are FREEBIES and a SALE going on!

Junk

Although I’m not showing much of the “Tiny House” that I’ve used as my background but it’s a Junk Stunner.  I have blogged it previously and you can check it out for yourself at the shop.  The Freebie is this sleigh seat which as far as I’m concerned can be used any time of year and not just for winter.  You actually get 2 colours this green and a blue.

junk3

The chair, plant and a lantern on the wall are Junk as well.  As it happens you get about 5 different metal versions of that lamp.

junk2

Last piece of Junk is this Button clock which comes with instructions on how to change the time settings to suit where you are in RL.

I’m not sure if you have to join the Junk group to grab it or not but it doesn’t really matter as it’s a Free to join group.  The chairs are obviously set out but the rest of the Free Junk is actually in the brown box just near the chairs but a bit behind and to the right. You will see what I mean when you go there.

Now for any budding photographers out there this is another sim for you.  So beautifully laid out and the Windlight setting is amazing.  You cannot fail to take a stunning picture.  This first one is completely unedited, I just pointed and snapped.  However if you’re feeling a little bit braver then you have 2 days to enter a picture to a competition being held by Tab Tatham then you have 2 days to submit your picture and you never know!

An unedited picture of the sim.

And this is my entry to the Comp.

Retro wins. (Free stuff)

At last some goodies good enough to keep.  I decided to try my hand at The Retro Hunt and because of the easy hints even  I managed to find some lovelies

Rapturedress

A lovely ladylike retro dress was my first find which comes from B!asta and I have to confess this is a little bit out of their usual modern styling and texturing but I’m loving it’s prim and properness.

Raptureinner

Next find is this excellent desk and chair set from Arcana Antiques & Oddities.  Arcana is a small shop and I have to say I almost broke my resolve to spend as little as possible because she has some great atmospheric decor items, bookcases, suitcases, pictures etc but I was good and resisted (I’ve bookmarked items to come back at a later date though).

Snapshot_037

A few more items are to be had upstairs so just sit on the ladder in the shop, or cam and sit on the seat up there and you will also find the full priced and darker version of this desk.  Honestly this desk is packed with poses! So many I keep on forgetting the number but you have male, female, unisexed and desk poses and if that wasn’t enough you can even change the decor items on the desk 4 choices in total.  Brilliant find.

What you’re looking for is a small tiled globe.  Since I’ve taken these pictures I’ve actually managed to score a few other items so I’m going to have an easy couple of days doing those, lucky me.

Over Kill!

Bankrupted by bargains but what bargains they are!.  We all know that the BIG Arcade Gacha  event is going on and it’s PACKED.  If you look at the sim on the large map you will see now only is it packed to capacity but the surrounding sims have queues of people waiting to TP in when a gap opens. However getting in is only half the problem because when you do get in it’s usually lag hell but there is another option, The Arcade Yardsale.  Stalls and stalls of the unwanted items just waiting to be snagged up.  All of them are at the same price as the actual event as well so this is just a case of people wanting to get rid of the items they bought but don’t want.

ArcadeThat is going to be me on my next holiday (I lie I’m really a brunette in RL).  Hair (Wasabi Pills) and the adorable ruffled bikini (Paper Doll)

Arcade 2I have this very type writer from Floorplan on the top shelf in my closet so this made me oooooo when I saw it.  Just like many of the items from Gatchas so low primed it’s only 1Prim! You can even change the message typed out.

Arcade 3Posh toast.  This made me take a break from SL and go make myself some toast.  Again only 1 Prim.

Arcade 5The last 2 pictures were taken in my usual Nams skin and prim setting because they just glow the texturing is so first class they just shine like real metal.  The tea trolley is a massive 2 prims (kidding about the massive).  Both come from AP (apple Fall).

Gatcha 6Sorry about the overkill on the picture these items didn’t need it.  Brilliant details and texturing) 3 seperate gachas’ here. Pot with brushes, cute stand with perfume and bangles and the bottles, box and qtips (Tres Blah) and each bundle is only….go on have a guess (answer at the bottom of the  page).

You can pick up anything from a new skin to a funny box car to run some one over with and all for between 25 and 100Lds from some of the bigggest names in SL.  Best of all if you have been lucky enough to visit the main event and have items you didn’t want then simply click one of the big boards there join the group (Little Wonder’s Gacha Yardsale) and put your own stuff out for resale.  Each stall is clearly named as to which shops the items belong to so it’s easy peasy.

BIG THANKS to ღ νєgα ღ (vega.firelyte) she provided me not only with the LM for the Gacha YS but each week she sends out a comprehensive list of sales, events, bargains and anything she spots.  Check her profile, join her group and trust me that list is pretty damned good.

1 Prim each of course!!
