Picked up from the Yugen shop, only 1 prim each, nice and small so perfect for shelves, mantlepieces etc.
Now I’m landmark grabbing I remember that there is another gift of a photo album which is for decor and you can also add your own photos.
Although a lot of what is for sale in this shop is child oriented not everything is and I spotted some nice plain sewing decor items. I also spotted something which is a “blast from the past” for me as I think a lot of us when we were small children were taught how to make paper lanters and there are some in this shop which made the RL me smile.
This is a lovely gift from Noveny and since it was automatically sent to me I wanted to make sure it was something we could all get so I went over and unsubbed then resubbed and another one was sent to me straight away.
I know this shop because of a couple of the other freebies I’ve blogged, a bike both for decor and poses, plus little tin cans with plants in and I’ve kept all of them).
It’s not a big shop as of yet which I like as I remember some of the BIG SL shops when they too were small ones.
We all know that last year Cory Edo the owner of Trompe Loeil was so generous with full quality builds and a piece of furniture as gifts for the “Stay at the home club” and since the world, on the most part, is back to full lockdown just look at whats out for us.
Yeah, this is a FREEBIE!
I clicked on the window and you get the wood screens up. It’s these small touches which really make a build stand out.
Today my first post was going to be those small plant pots on the fireplace. You can also see my horses bum through the window as I had to rezz this house on the field he runs around in.
This staircase is just so well done.
The stairs lead up to a bedroom which is pretty big, big enough for bed, shower, lounging area. Nothing has been skimped on this build.
The chair is the extra gift, you get 2 shades and I think this is the dark one. Excellent poses as expected with Trompe Loeil.
The table in the background is a Christmas Gacha freebie. You will see that there is a stand showing you all the prizes in the Christmas Gacha’s, only 25Lds a pop. NOW PAY ATTENTION because you do need the table to get the Cacha prizes.
The table is the “2020 calender” and when you play the Gacha you get a “key” which you then rezz next to the “calender” ie table and then “~ Then, rez your 2020 Key next to the Calendar. (You must REZ the key – it cannot be attached to your avatar.) The corresponding numbered ornament on the Calendar will light up, and you will be given a surprise gift!”.
Don’t worry it’s all in the note so read that and I think when I log back inworld I may just give it a try as at only 25Ld for the Gacha even though Christmas is over I’m happy to hoard my prize till next year.
I was going to have, another, lazy day but sadly I now have to adult which means I have to put on my pants, brush my hair etc.
Before I log off to go to do all that I made my weekly visit to Apple Fall so I can be entered into their weekly draw. The prize of is of either 2.500 in lindens or shop credit and all it costs you is a TP so it’s worth it.
It was unusually quiet in the shop esp since it’s a monday so I could finally have a nice lag free walk around to see if there is any hidden new freebie.
These magifying glasses are not new, I think they have been out almost as long as Apple Fall has been running. I’m using these as an example of what you’re looking for as you can see they don’t have the price tag over them plus when you hover your mouse pointer over a freebie it shows it’s priced at “0”Lds.
I was actually a bit disapointed as I didn’t find anything new downstairs so I decided to TP to the outlet department. You will find this poster/TP on the wall at the back of the shop and when you click on it you get TP’d to a LOT of new freebies. So many of them I thought for a moment that the whole floor was going to be a freebie department, it’s not but you will walk away with a lot of Apple Fall quality decor.
PS. Don’t forget all the group gifts in the main entrance as well.
The LM will take you to a platform and on one side is a TP to the Voluptas Virtualis shop and the other side takes you to the Aisling shop.
In the Voluptas Virtualis shop there are freebies, no group needed, the main gift is a cropped top and panties set. Nice and plain almost sporty unlike the fuzzy socks lol. There are other gifts which I do believe are eyes and jewellery.
Since I can’t really model the outfit for you I decided to head on back to the platform and go to the Aisling shop. Ignore the cat, he’s a random Gacha prize from the Aisling shop which I have had for a long time.
Next to where you TP into the shop is a whole load of freebies, no group needed, and some of these freebies have been around for many, many years and this floral headdress is actually one of them. It’s stood the test of time as have many of the other gifts. I think this floral crown and a pair of mens shoes are the only free clothing the rest is items of decor. Pretty RP/Gor/Medival but don’t let that put you off. There are things there which will suit any home/garden.
Special mention to the bags and spilled gems. I used to have them out on my land a long time ago and now I’ve been reminded of them I must dig them out.
Before I settled down to work through my Raindale stuff I decided I should check the shop out and was happy to see a lot of old and probably new group gifts.
The tent is of course an old freebie which I can imagine everyone has in their invent. Next to it is an arch way made up of twisted branches, new? I’m not too sure. You get 4 versions in total, basically with or without snow and with or without lights.
I definately remember the teapot with flowers, maybe even the cake what I don’t remember is that plate of “Lembas”.
I was so curious as to what exactly “Lembas” is I googled it and it turns out that Lembas is the name given to the bread baked by the Elves in Toklens Lord of the Rings book. I’ve never read the book, watched the film or intend on reading/watching Lord of the Rings so all I know is that one click on the plate and you get a quality slice of Lembas sent to you to wear.
There are quite a lot of other gifts now at the Raindale shop inc some Christmas themed ones so check them out now.
PS. I may never read Lord of the Rings but I whole heartedly suggest you read To Kill a Mocking Bird, it exceeded my expectations.
I thought the Cosmopolitan event had just started a new round so I was surprised to see that the Christmas Tree is still out and even more surprised at how many gifts there are for us.
This jacket is just an example of the gifts and it’s from a shop we should all know, Miva. I’ve only unpacked 1 other item and it’s a decor set which is also a keeper so I for one can’t wait to log in and chill out unpacking the rest of the goodies and since this event has some of the biggest shops in SL selling there I can imagine the gifts are going to be really good quality.
A quick check of the group shows that this event is almost over so go NOW and not tomorrow!
PS. The gifts are the socks on the tree and not the parcels under the tree.
