Defeated (freebies n stuff).

Quit

I have a migraine, just a mild one and until the pain killers kick in I’m basically failing to get my act together and make a semi decent picture which is making my poor head even worse so you’re going to have to put up with this one of me jumping in frustration (as it happens I will be mentioning the pouffe soon).

Check out my previous post and you can see the sweet jumper and skirt which are group gifts from Moon Amore.  As always when visiting new shops I walk outside to check out if there is any other nice shops there and I’m so glad I did.  This is a small and well landscaped shopping area, small shops set in a garden, watery setting with lots of sitting areas to chat with friends or use for poses.  I’m so “off” today I couldn’t even take a picture of the scenery!  I know you can’t really see what it’s like in the picture that I’ve used but the dress I am wearing which is a simple spring patterned mesh dress is a Dollarbie from the shop next to Moon Amore.   I’m also wearing a really excellent camera, no poses in it, but you get different sizes, s/m/l etc and only 15Lds! I’ve given the LM for that shop as well even though all LMs are actually in the same location.  You can get the fat pack of all the cameras for only 50Lds.

Icing on the cake is there is also a Hunt going on.  So easy peasy because you’re looking for sunken chests and where do you find a sunken chest? in the water of course.  Easiest hunt ever and some real sweet prizes.  The “hunt board” LM takes you to the board where you can see exactly what you can win and there are some goodies and also a real nice mix, a skirt, cuddly octopus, owl bag, poses, tattoo’s etc so basically something for everyone.

Whispers in your ear..

an then screams HURRY!!! I did go to the Cart Sale and I did pick up some goodies but I also binned quite a few baddies and then this morning I find a note in my inbox from Babylee Timeless reminding us that it is the last 2 days of the Cart Sale and a picture of their offering which as soon as I saw I TPed and grabbed.

Melissa Perga

With little bows and a peplum skirt and that retro funky flowers pattern this is adorable!! The garter comes already with the bottoms and you get the stockings included.  I wanted to get this posted as soon as poss so people can pay the Cart Sale a visit before it goes so I haven’t had a chance to try out other stocking to see if I could fit a lighter colour. Extra nice is the fact that you have 3 Alplha layers so you can wear each item on their own or all together.

The LM should take you right to B&T’s stall and remember everything is only 10Lds and because of that you can treat yourelf not only to this cute little number but check out the light coloured pencil skirt.  I will once I get the time but it looks a winner.

An Embarrassment Of Skin

Suzanne

What does a normal person do when they wake up in the middle of the night and can’t go back to sleep? do some Invent clearing of course. I came across an old Mother Goose skin which  because it was so pretty, sent me to the shop and what an “embarrassment” of FREE skins and LBs and Dollarbies and Cheapies along side the full priced skins, shapes etc A massive amount of LBs a total of 48. One of the things I like doing best is standing in front of a whole bank of boards and sorting through my notes or checking stuff out etc and grabbing as much freebies as I can and in the short time I stood there doing this blogg I’ve grabbed myself 12 new and hopefully pretty skins for nothing.

Norland

The 2 skins I am showing aren’t the LBs ones, I haven’t had time to unpack them and try them on, but Dollarbies.  As you can see in the first picture this one comes with a sweet toothy smile.  The second skin I had to get because it’s called after my name, Suzanne.  A pretty soft skin.  Although her shop is packed with so much freeness/cheapness even her full priced skins are a bargain price so for a little time and a little expense you could indulge in a new shape or skin and grab a whole bunch of free ones.  A win win situation.

The Hunt Goes On (SAH)

Earl Perga

Only crashing saved me from spending all my Lindens in American Bazaar, although I have to admit their clothes are a lot more affordable than I thought so I’ve managed to snag a couple of things and I will be heading back there later because I saw some very cheeky and slightly tarty tops that I want.  Until then let me show you their kind offering for the SAH (suicide awareness hunt) and it’s cute and quality.  A mesh dress shaded with pastel colours and a slighty satin sheen.  A bunched up bootilicious skirt and off the shoulder top.  Pretty darn nice. Almost forgot to mention that there is a couple of hunts going on so even more reason to call in and for the boys I noticed a really good mens selection of clothes.

Earl

I know that at this moment there are some amazingly big hunts going on but lets not forget that a lot of them have a message of sadness, education and hope behind them and what represents this more than the Suicide Awareness Hunt.  At this time of year when the Christmas Spirit seems to be foisted on us no matter how we feel it can just make you feel worse.  Not everyone is surrounded by love and safetly or even if they ARE surrounded by love and safety they just can’t feel it.  This is a hard time for a lot of people for a lot of reasons, debt, lonliness, ill health, abuse, but the one thing we all share is WE ARE NOT ALONE! We only need to reach out to one person and say “I FEEL” and then to be honest about how you feel.

Sniff Sniff

Banish to the back door no wonder he looks so sad.

Trashed

To think I resisted the shagging reindeer, the dead hanging reindeer and even the dance stage where we can all have a dance not around our handbags but a disemboweled Reindeer.

Trashy use

Will sit up to 4 avatars (if you could find 4 people who would want to sit on him). A total of 9 anims, on or off for falling snow (nice big snowflakes which I forgot to put on for the picture) and click his ciggie to turn on or off the smoke.  This sweetie is copyable and 16 prims.  Other Crimbo scenes set out not all so rudie so check them out.

The best clubs in SL have Pixlights club lightening and effects.  They are so good you can walk through the showrooms with them and although they’re all on and flashing there is no lag.  But you don’t have to have a club to own their lights.  So reasonably priced so I picked up my new Crimbo tree light for 90Lds.

Lights

I’ve actually now moved it up over my house and highlighted by a starry background it is so pretty and yet I managed to take a rotten picture of it so I’ve used this one.

Lights1

This is a close up of the swirly lights to show you it’s depth and prettiness.  But you really need to see them in action so pop to the shop and check them all out. So reasonaly priced, so low primmed and copyable.

I’ve blogged Pixlights before and  will do it again and again probably.  Only a small collection of mens clothes and jewelry here and no womens clothes at all but their furniture is totally funky, fun, unisexed.  Their bikes are gleaming and their cars are sleek and very driveable. A shop that takes design seriously but not without humour and imagination.

Make sure you don’t miss the rezzer as well.  They can supply everything from a complete club, stage and sadly only a couple of homes so far but the attention to detail and shading is so good.

Dazed

Lap

How realistic is this laptop? So realistic I actually had to zoom in on it because just for a second I wondered if I could actually click those keys and see if something happened but of course nothing happened but it’s the most realistic laptop I’ve seen in SL.

Wine

This wine bench, the laptop, 2 world maps posters, photo frame and picture frame (one day I will actually get around to putting a photo in a photo frame!) are all group gifts. Costs you a 100Lds to join but I’m more than happy with what I’ve got for that.

This shop is called (EoD) End of Daze Design and it’s owned by Icewood Bayn.  He has created furniture which is slightly mannish, slightly retro, unfussy, uncluttered furniture with clean lines and  excellent textures.  Prims and prices aren’t that bad at all.

Special mention to a couple of things.  The most realistic pool table I’ve seen yet. So much detail so few prims and the accessories for it such as the cue holder are just classy.  Faith had to check it out and yes it has a small but good rudie menu.  What I spotted most was a lovely dark dressing table with rezzable accessories, a small menu of hair brushing etc but just lovely.  A set of modern minimalist wood Xmas tree so low primmed and with loads of colour choices so you could rezz a dozen and make a little forest of them and then last but not least a livingroom set which has some great retro seating with a modern touch.  This set  includes an indoor rope seat which even Faith thought was so different. This is very much  a mans shop stuffed with very unisexed furniture and I love them all.

And yes I did forget to take a picture of the Great Outdoor Hunt item.  That doesn’t mean it’s not good, a lovely low prim simple garden bench with a few poses and so worth the 45Lds.  I just got carried away with my shopping list for when I come back.

The Knitting Circle Rummage Sale (non mesh)

Wandering around I came across a small market set up.  This is what the LM says and it’s exactly what you get “Discount and retired items from your favorite Knitting Circle stores. Gacha doubles and other random treasures can also be found at this group rummage sale.” Some great bargains to be had.

First up a very handy shrug (Riddle).  Again I chose the safe brown but at 25Lds a colour you can get as many as you like at that bargain price.

Ana is the name of the top and PaperDoll is the name of the shop.  I chose the cream which is pretty but hasn’t photographed as well as either the pool (blue) or the Mauve would have.  Doesn’t matter because it only looks pale in this photo in SL it’s lovely lacy and creamy.  At 25Lds I’m grabbing the lot.

Grixdale Vintage Frock is the name of this item. More top than Frock.  A sweet creamy full skirted top with lovely satin/ribbon edging and prim bows.  This shop is called Aura.

OK summing up this market its stuffed with BARGAINS and as far as I can tell all NON MESH ones at that. Because as I always say not everyone can handle mesh and maybe even doesn’t want to. We all need non mesh clothes for those times when our comps are struggling to cope with SL and this is the place.  Kicking myself for the library fines because I can see at least 3 dresses which are soooo sweet!! and so cheap. In a relatively small area they have everything you need from hair, skin, shoes and clothes and all at great prices.

List of shops here. Atomic, Pink Fuel, Ploom, Riddle, Aura,Paperdoll.
