Buyers Remorse(Bargains).

I seem to be popping into a few old shops today and it’s such a pleasure to see such familiar names and the name of this shop is Thanio.

I first bought the chair which cost me 65Lds because of the folded fabric on it, it’s those realistic touches I love.  It does have poses in them but I prefer it for decor only and at 3 prims most reasonable.  This chair is to be found in the main shop.  Somethings in the shop can be bought just by clicking on them and others like this chair are from the nearby board.

Then I TPed to the “outlet” dept and went a little bit clicky because everything is only 25Lds.  I bought this kitchen and not just the rug you can see but in fact, I ended up with 5 rugs.

The kitchen is deceptively simple looking and yet you can see from this shot quite a lot of detailing has gone into it.  If you click on the oven doors and the covers they all open.

There is a bit of everything in this shop, art, furniture, some lovely decor for a sewing craft room etc.

And then when I TPed over to Thanio Design to LM grab I spotted this kitchen which if I was, to be honest, I would have bought in the first place BUT at only 25Lds it’s not like I’ve wasted a lot of Lindens.

The reason I had to have this particular kitchen is because of the narrowness of the benches.  I have a few rustic caravans and “tiny” homes where space is at a premium and this has to be the narrowest kitchen I’ve seen.  Not sure if it’s editable as I literally just spotted it when I returned, bought it and took a snap of it in the shop.

UPDATE.  Totally editable.  I’ve not really done this kitchen much favours as it has a metal sink, great taps etc so make sure to ignore this picture and check it out properly for yourself.

Sorry, again, yet another rush job!(Mention of Freebies ‘n’ cheapies).

I decided to go to the Redeux event because I knew it has been running for long enough that it should be quiet now and it is, nice and quiet and lag-free just how I like it and then I spotted the end date and that’s TODAY!  But I have found from past experience that although these events do have a end date often they do continue on after that so you have not just today but probably tomorrow, the day after and maybe the day after that but I would go as soon as you can because there looks like not just a lot of exc discounted clothes, furniture, decor etc but oodles of GIFTIES!

This dress is not one of those gifties though but at 35Lds cheap as chips.

I actually bought this and picked up a couple of the freebies, as yet unpacked, and thats when I spotted the ending date so I decided to TP home try this one and do a quick post because this isn’t a small event and I just love spending a few hours in SL wandering a nicely landscaped event picking up a mix of stuff for free or even bargain prices.  As for this dress it’s off the Infinity stall which is right next to the LM, you only get the 1 fit but I think you can see that most if not all Alpha huds or just an Alpha you may in your invent will make it a fit for all.

OH NO!(Freebies).

I went and checked the Victorian bed and it’s for sale at the Liason Collaborative event so I TPed over and drat it’s out of my price range!  Don’t get me wrong it’s actually worth every Linden and if it wasn’t for the fact I have so many beds, daybeds and loungers in my invent I would have snapped it up in a heartbeat but I have to be practical(mean).  I wasn’t going to linger at this event too long because it’s just too tempting but all these new and amazing designs come with a price tag so I was just going to TP out but I spotted some rather lovely low primmed tree’s, I’m spending all my Lindens buying landscaping items at the moment, so I clicked on them to find out where they’re from and TPed over.

Sometimes in SL all I seem to do is TP from one LM to another LOL.

Turns out that SW(Sara Wayland Shop)is mainly a texture/full perm shop and since I’m not much into creating in SL I was just about to TP out when I spotted a couple of gifties.

xxxmirrorgreen

Yup you guess it, it’s a keeper.  The editing has turned it into this green colour but it’s really a tarnished silver, 2 prims and I’m so pleased.

xxxmirroruse2

Yup admiring it from afar, as it happens the rug I’m standing on was the second gift I say “was” because I’ve binned it but purely because I have enough rugs/carpets to carpet a whole bloddy sim! The thing I did notice about this rug is it makes a much better full roomed carpet than it does as a rug but of course that’s your choice.

PS 2 days ago I accidentally bought a tree texture pack instead of what I thought was the actual tree’s so it’s about time I pulled my finger out and work out how to mesh!

Must try harder! (Freebie).

Yup yet again I’m going to be MIA because I am away.  This time my jaunt is for a whole 6 days woo hoo lucky me unfortunately my destination isn’t for a hot beach resort or a exotic and exciting destination it’s a Northern town called Leeds which is so similar to my own home town of Newcastle it will be like a home from home which includes the rain, dullness and tbh they’re not the most polite of folks and if anyone from Leeds reads this post, don’t hate meeeee.

So I’m going to spend today snagging as many freebies/gifts/dollarbie and I may even go apesh*t and spend some Lindens if I find anything worth it and I will line the posts up and hopefully Faith will be able to click “publish” and over the next week I maybe MIA but my goodies will still be here.

First the freebies are from Noctis.  I’m showing you the freebie first and then a piccie of one of the Noctis shops.

Simple 1 prim rugs, great colours and design and Free.

XXXNoctis2

Although Noctis puts out great freebies it’s been a while since I grabbed on so make sure to slap that sub board so you don’t miss any of them.

XXXNoctis1

I took a quick snap of the Noctis shop I visited as there is a handful of them, the same gift can be found in all of the shops, this particular shop is one of my favs because of its setting.  It’s a shack on a Bayou?  I think that’s the style of the shack and landscaping.  It’s pretty inspiring.

OK off for my next freebie/find.

Clutter clutter everywhere!!! (Bargains ‘n’ Freebies)

I’ve spent the RL morning filling a charity bag sometimes I wonder where all these things come from and then I remember my charity shop addiction.  SL is a bit like that because even if you don’t need it when it’s such a bargain you simply have to have it and this is what I found when I went to the Frayed Knot shop.

I don’t like shops like this because there is very little in this shop but what there is pretty darned good and you only wish there was more to buy esp if he, Astoria (6astoria6),  keeps the prices as low as these are.

All I wanted was the multi striped rug which at 50Lds alone was a bargain but you actually get the 3 in the pack so I was very pleased with them all.

XXXCatsuse

OH Lord my SL bedroom is starting to look as cluttered as my RL one!

XXXCatsuse2

Taken in my Nams Optimum Skin n Prim setting to show you how I see these gorgeous colours.  There are 3 colour pack options and I do believe this was pack #2.

XXXCatsuse3

Now you’ve seen upstairs this is downstairs LOL.  Yes not only am a Charity shop addict I am a Mad Cat Woman! Although I’ve stuck to 2 of them but they do rule the household.  Have to say though in RL I wouldn’t put cat paintings up in my home but SL is the perfect place for madness.

XXXCatsuse4

They’re copyable which basically means you can spread your madness all over your walls.  They come rezzed in the layout you can see above which again I think looks great.  Single prim each so of course 6 in total if you rezz the lot and again only 50Lds.

Last but not least a lovely simple gift.

XXXCatsuse5

Coffee n doughnuts always WIN!  Touch the box and you get sent the doughnut you see but it’s a wearable, I just rezzed it onto the table for you to see.  Slight confession in that the cups come with a shadowed and non shadow version but the box is only a shadow version and can you see the shadow?  The answer is “nope” cos it looked just a little bit funny to me so I rezzed the box with the shadow just under the table.  Hardly an issue at all!!! I just like to be honest.

I’ll have to zoom around our sim just like my house and pick up my clutter but at least in SL you don’t have to dust.

Aphrodite tent & lanterns Tres Chic

Aphrodite has some totally gorgeous items out for the new round of Tres Chic, including this fantastic tent made entirely of squares of fabric. It’s all knotted together and makes it  fragile and whimsical. The anchor pegs for the tent are old bits of tree wood, dead cute. The prim count is incredibly low for something so complex, I was verrrry surprised ! This is primarily a couples tent, not essentially romantically involved couples though – it would also suit friends (in some poses). Theres eating, drinking, dancing and guitar playing plus of course , plenty of snuggles ! The rugs Ive scattered around on the grass are also new – very vibrant and shabby chic .

Aphrodite @ Tres Chic

Close up look at some points of interest, new lanterns that come in packs of hanging and table varieties, only 1 Li and also turn on and off. The fabrics used for the cushions are varied and eclectic, some with lovely words written across them. All this and much more from Aphrodite make sure to check it out !

Concrete is back.

Most surprised when a notice came through from a shop which seemed to have closed down such a long time ago but now due to people’s requests Concrete Flowers is back.  Albeit in a smaller form but some of the classics are there.

Cake1

Most of the fun items are just 25Lds and best of all they are also trans which means if you know someone in world who is a bit naughty a bit cheeky then the perfect pressie is here for them.  Some of them are very rude like the dropped soap pose or the sandbox with a unusual “erect” build on it, lots of faiths faves ie wearbles etc.  I love the idea of sending someone a “stinky sock” as a Christmas pressie LOL.  I just picked up this case which comes with the simple small wearable one and of course the larger one with poses.

Cake2

As I’ve said most of the “fun” items are just priced at 25Lds and Trans but there is also as selection of jewelry and also some really great rugs, sadly none rezzed for you to check out first but I have some and they’re definitely worth the 77Lds.  Great texturing and some come with those natural looking trip inducing wrinkles LOL.

sky

This isn’t 25Lds or even 77lds but just 49.  This is the view from outside looking in and I’ve shown myself so you can get some idea of the sizing.  The snow is on the outside only and it’s lovely.

sky2

Inside out and I’ve taken all photos in my Nams setting.

sky4

Although it’s a large single cube the shelving and curtains break that up.  This cost 49lds and is only 27prims.

And right in the middle of all of this the Follow Us Christmas tree in all it’s glory:-)
