A bit like me.(Freebie ‘n’ cheapie).

Another event with oodles of freebies and not a single bit of clothing to show you!

This is just for the bag, which is from the Petit Chat shop and the LM takes you to that shop.

That was me last night at a big shopping center, only with jeans, flat shoes, a coat and a harassed look on my face but with great hair.  The “Black Shop & Hop Event” as you can see is laid out just like a big shopping center and almost every shop has a giftie which takes me to the bag.

No close-up but it’s a great leather bag with a holding pose.  As you can see from the sign behind me there are some well-known brands here.

FREEBIE! Woah, a delightful Victorian gazebo/bandstand etc Really lovely texturing and you can have it with or without the snow and I can’t remember the exact prims but without the snow it was very low with the snow a lot higher. Without the snow, this will do all seasons and is a  really nice gift.

Paid for this but only 49Lds as it’s such a good prop for our sim.

I often buy things but don’t show you unless I think they’re such a good buy or in this case not only a great prop but a bargain.  For that you get the tree wrapper, those bundles of wrapped trees and the tree’s to the left of the picture are inc as well.  All low primmed and copyable.

This is a nice sized event  and although I can’t, at the moment, tell you which shop each item comes from the event is big enough to have a lot of interesting stuff but small enough that you can have a pleasant time just walking around grabbing the goodies, maybe treating yourself to something, unpack sort it out and still have time for a coffee before lunch.

Speaking of which I’m off out for lunch myself and if I have time when I get back I will get the details of which shop each item came from and I’ve picked up a few LMs for the main shops of some of the shops at this event as I want to check them out as well.

I’ve finally SNAPPED! (Freebies).

I had gone over to the SWANK event and looked and looked and looked some more wondering where the goodies were hidden but it was only when I returned at a later date for another try did I realise that you have to TP to a really lovely decorated Wintery are and under the tree are the gifts.  This TP is actually at the LM for SWANK, it’s on the floor just behind you.

Lots of clothes n stuff for sale but I paid more attention to the landscaping/decor items which are placed in the middle of the shop.  Personally, I’m done with landscaping, I don’t think our sim can hold any more snow, tree’s shrubs etc but I would have been tempted by some of what’s here if that wasn’t the case.

This coat/hat/glove set is one of the prizes and the lovely wintery setting at SWANK was going to be a perfect backdrop to show it off so I TPed back to the event and snapped, snapped, snapped some more till I finally SNAPPED! It’s a lovely setting but with all the flashing lights it was a nightmare to get a decent picture so I TPed back home and got the snap this outfit deserves. It also comes in so many sizes and the fuzz on the cuffs and hat doesn’t have to be worn if you want a simpler look.

BUT, once you’ve grabbed the gifts under the tree don’t rush home to unpack because you may notice that around this landscaped area are other scattered gifts.  I’ve only unpacked 2 items, this coat and I’m actually wearing earrings which are teeny tiny sparkling trees so cute!!!!

Dirty little stopper upperer!(Freebies).

Yes, I actually logged into SL at about 2AM just to see if I could grab the last remaining items from the Apple Fall sale and now I’m done.  Today is the last day so I will assume that you have some time to get in and grab and remember everything is priced between 25-75Ld and that inc the buildings(and my new home when I get around to it).

Then, since I am an SL addict, I popped over to the Hashtag event and it’s its Birthday and we all know what that means…CAKE AND JELLY!  Sadly no but lots and lots of FREEBIES.

I only grabbed about a quarter of what was there before I gave up and TPed home and started to unpack and of course started to bin away.  As usual, a lot of the small things but that’s not a bad thing at all.  I’m just not a tattoo or jewelry wearer so more often than not I bin it without unpacking it.  I like to just grab a load of stuff from a place to get the sense of the goodies and yes there are goodies to be found.

But as soon as I unpacked this bucket of flowers it was the “money shot”.

A Beeee a cute little Beee LOL.  Non-edit but copyable.  The only reason I would edit this is I would take copies of those gorgeous flowers and scatter them around my garden but as a stand alone potted plant this is just excellent.  I will do a quick log in to find the name of the stall/shop I found this one on at the Hashtag event so you can just go and grab this but as I said there are oodles of gifts on the stands and there is nothing nicer than grabbing a whole load of stuff and then plonking yourself down and working through them and finding the pieces which make fab additions to your inven

UPDATE. I think the bucket of flowers is off the “Dreamland Design” stall which is not a name I’m familiar with so woo hoo thats a mainshop for me to check out later.  If I’m wrong about the stall just GRAB ALL of the gifts and have fun finding it.

Then I decided to quickly check the Dreamland MP shop and found even more quality Freebies.

They turned out to be just as good as I had hoped but since SL time was running out I’ve just slapped 2 of the 3 freebies down and quickly took a snap.  I saw some window boxes in the MP shop but since these come with a price tag, cheap at 50Lds though, I will when I log back into SL pop over to the inworld shop to check them and the whole shop out.

This is why sometimes a quality freebie works as it gives people a taste of what you have and they might just come over and spend Lindens in your shop.

Hashtag this.(Oodles of Bargains).

Last time I stumbled upon the Hashtag event it was literally hours before it was over so I was relieved when I again stumbled upon this event but we have till the 30th WOO HOO because it means I’m going to be able to have a nice leisurely wander around.

This is where you rezz and if you squint you will just be able to make out Alice’s legs as she disappears down the rabbit hole and yes it is an Alice in Wonderland themed event.

Walking into the hole you fall down the tree trunk and land in the shopping area.

People have spend a lot of time and yes money making this a really nice shopping event.  I’ve taken the pictures in the sim setting but when I go back I will be changing it just so I can see things clearer because I basically don’t want to miss anything esp now I have the time to have a good look and not the mad rush I had at the last event.

So what is there for Cheap B*’s like us? the same as the last event in that lots if not all of the shops have gift bags out but they all come with a price tag but those price tags are for tiny amounts ie 5Lds, 10Lds etc and a lot of the shops have more than 1 gift bag.  If you’re penny-pinching then most of the bags when you click on them say what’s inside so you can decide if it’s something you can use.

I’ve only done about a quarter of this event and as I’m starving I thought I’d do a quick post then have a nice lunch and then return inworld for a nice time.  In the limited time I did spend at this event I picked up a couple of the gift bags, bought something which was a nice price but I’m not even sure what it is LOL and yes there is a lot of classic designs but I’ve also spotted a few really nice outfits which again if I wasn’t a CB with a Fat invent I would have been tempted to buy.  Plus again since I’ve only scratched the surface of this event I don’t know but I’m pretty sure at the last one there were FREEBIES so when I return to this event you know I will be snuffling around for those freebies like a pig looking for truffles.

So basically a really nice way to kill a lazy Saturday afternoon.

Big Discounts @ Home Whimsy

Another month another round of Home Whimsy yippeee! This is a small event so no lag fest, in fact I decided to peruse the stores on the sim as it was so refreshing not to get bogged down. %percent have a scrummy box of Sakura jellies for their item, the box rezzes closed, touch it and it opens, touch again et voila! A delicious jelly treat is in your hand to scoff. Just 2Li so you wot be afraid to scatter the boxes around – works for anyone who touches it . Little bit of background on this piece:

“These jellies are a desert common in Northern Japan around the hanami flower season. They are a single cherry blossom flower suspended inside a sweetened almost-solid jelly. The RL versions have a faded blossom, (due to the creation process,) but I kept the blossoms in mine brighter to match how they appear on the cherry blossom tree. “

I also nabbed this sweet tree from Lunar Seasonal Designs “Menu Driven Nest Seat in a Cherry Tree “, as you can see I’m lolling about rather nicely reading a book but there are lots of other poses too. Now I thought this was just a cherry tree – but it isn’t – oh no, you get a seasonal version, even snow! You can also change the seat textures and bark. With 50% off its quite the bargain for something you can leave out all year round.

If you’re QUICK you may meet me here.(Freebies).

I finally stripped off my catsuit but on some sexy hunting clothes and then started to go through my notes and spotted this event.

xxxfansuse2You can just about make me out.  The thing is this is very much a Halloween themed event and as we all know Halloween is now over and I don’t know how long all of this is going to be set out. Also, this is mainly themed to kiddies and yes if I had known that I wouldn’t have come here and what a shame.  I’ve only walked part way down one aisle and have snagged myself some decor items, fun items etc and as soon as I click “publish” I’m logging back inworld and finishing off being a Greedy B as soon as I get back in.

PS if you want to see one of the fun things here is a simply gorgeous portrait of Moi!..it’s the teeth which gnash ewww.

So if like me you have a little time to spare check this place out now as it might just be gone tomorrow, although if I find an ending date I’ll put an update

Ouch it’s TOOOOO Big!(Freebies n an event).

Sorry about the smuttiness, I’m cold, bored and hungry and that’s a lousy combination.

The “Big” is “the Crossroads” and the blurb says….

“The Crossroads is a unique new event featuring six sections called Worlds, each with its own theme. The outstanding designers that take part in this event are distributed among the Roleplay, Vintage, Cute, Contemporary, Apocalypse and Lust worlds. From gachas to regular vendors, from lovely and cute to dark and apocalyptic, you’re bound to find something to suit your taste! So head on over to the very first round of The Crossroads, you have until July 28th to explore and shop” cutting and pasting has saved me a lot of typing.

What I say is “Woah” this is big, stalls and stalls of sheer temptation and as the blurb above says there are 6 areas to explore and I just didn’t have the time to scratch more than the surface but of course being a “cheap biatch” I grabbed the freebies at the rezzing area and I’m pretty sure that you can grab a note, there is a board there, which looks as though it gives you the LMs to all the stalls so if you don’t have the time to hunt any particular stall down you want to check out.

XXXPlantuse

Sadly for a Cheap Biatch like me not as many freebies as my greedy little heart desires lol but check this out! Unique and gorgeous and there is a “Beach pallette” from Bauwerk which is definitely beach lounging worthy and this exc plant from Apt B and although the other items are wearables ie a couple of piercings, sunglasses, necklace, poses I’ve actually put them on and I’m keeping those piercings for sure.  Sometimes the small things can surprise you more.

PS Don’t let my “big” comments put you off I think that once you have a wander around it’s not redic big and there is also a sign post to the different area.
