Oh my days – cuteness overload ! This little chap in his sweet sombrero is the gift from Zinnias at the Shop & Hop, at just 2Li he is such a winner – he certainly stole my heart ❤
Above is one of the items for sale at the event. This is the “Ofrenda” set or as I know it “The Day of The Dead”. I did a little research and this collection of items is very traditional. The offerings, the flowers & food, even Tequila (which gives you a glass to drink upon touch)
All the items are seperates so you can alter the positions and use as much or as little as you choose. The texturing and colours are really awesome ! Link to Zinnias Shop & Hop store below
In my last post I showed you the newest gift from Amias and I also mentioned there was some older items I wanted to reblog and here they are.
So you may already have picked up the top, pants and even the excellent wearable ice skates but if they’re new to you then you’re in for a treat. If you’re a jewelery wearer then you’re in for another treat as even though I’m not wearing any they are very nice indeed.
The next step was to find a suitable backdrop to show off my look and somehow and instead of a nice icy backdrop I ended up at the Warburg shop. This small shopping sim has been around as long as I have and the same can be said for a lot of whats for sale but it’s a smorgasbord of silly, fun, serious, daft, cheap, free, full priced stuff. It’s hard to walk away without picking something up for your home or garden.
Normally if a gift card is trans I trans it to someone else as I have enough stuff but in this case even though this gift card seems to be non-trans I’m keeping it.
I will assume that you need to join the group which costs only 20Lds and at the LM is where you will find not just this notice board but also some other gifts and you may recognise one of them as a fab decor/pose bike from a previous post.
GO NOW! As you can see from the board this is a “TODAY” offer only and today is Sunday so if you’re reading this post on monday I’d still go because you never know it may still be out.
UPDATE: It’s one of those gift cards that if you rezz it and take it back into your invent it then becomes trans…I’m still keeping it and actually I’ve already spent it. I bought the antique clock and a christmas wreath. It’s the usual way, you wear the credit card, bottom right of your screen then click/touch the item you want to buy and out of the menu wheel chose credit. Just confirm it by looking at the credit card on your screen as it will show the item you’re purchasing. BTW It also looks as though there is a 50% sale going on but not for when using your credit.
I was meandering around a shopping sim and spotted outside of a lot of the shops signposts for the “SLF Anniversary Event” and we all know that next to a Birthday Event an Anniversary one is just as good for goodies.
I’m only showing you two of the gifts from the gift wall next to the LM the rest I will leave as suprises and there is a nice mix of items as well.
I was actually in the Acrid shop, on the shopping sim, admiring a bed before I spoted the notice boards and this is their gift of a 1 prim neon tap. Very interesting and another reminder I need to start cleaning up the clutter on my land.
These shoes do look very familiar to me. I suspect they were a gift from a previous event/offer and of course I could be totally wrong as I did check and I don’t have these and I know I would have kept them.
No shade intended thinking that they might be old gifts dusted off as I always think when a gift is top quality they can put it out/keep it out for as long as they want as that gives everyone a chance to get them. I believe these are from a shop called “Look at me” and the style is familar but not the shop name.
I’m going to give you the 2 LM’s one for the event and the other for the shopping sim so once you’ve saved money on the freebies you can spend money in the shops.
PS. This event is over on the 31st so still a few days left and I will be returning to check it out fully myself when I get back inworld.
This Dollarbie is going to end up costing me a lot of money.
Basically on my hunt for freebies/cheapies I spotted a metal can being used as decor in a shop and it piqued my interest so a quick click showed me it’s from a shop called Unflat Stuff.
(Edit) I haven’t/won’t be buying that I bough this and when I’d unpacked it and saw how good quality it is, and only 1 prim, I TP’d to the inworld shop and wished I hadn’t. It’s a bit like visiting TK Maxx in that you come across hidden treasures for such a reasonable price that even a Cheap B* like me caves in and so far I’ve bought from the inworld shop a wheel barrow, a pan set and a wood bucket and from the marketplace shop a planter and jug of flowers. tempted.
The reason I bought from both the inworld and marketplace shop is that although they sell a lot of the same thing I think there are more items for sale in the marketplace shop than inworld also different styles. There are 2 different wheelbarrows for sale on the marketplace shop but the inworld shop has a totally different styled one and I loved that one as it is so retro.
So basically make sure to check out both the marketplace shop as well as the inworld shop before you decided if you want to buy anything.
PS. There are also a few other cheapies on the marketplace shop as well.
On Saturday I was at a training session given by Dion Mole for the upcoming SL18B party. I noticed he had the most awesome coffee machine out for us – so of course I investigated further. Above is the espresso machine F-Class gastro model by No. 59. I thought long and hard about purchasing it, at $499L its a considered purchase (for me!). I had to have it ! Its the best by a long chalk in coffee machines I’ve ever owned in SL. Coming in at just 3Li with all the bells and whistles for a supremely realistic coffee experience. The menu is larger, each freshly made cup is visible whilst being poured and it automatically gets sent to your hand. Lovely drinking animation, beautiful cups. Really liked the simple notecard instructions to make sure you’ve added the machine to your land experiences – although there is another model in the box without that feature too. There are a few colour options to choose from, mine is the green.
I had a look through the inworld store and the market place to make sure I wasn’t missing something. Came across this older model which is 12Li and free. Five drinks on offer, visible cup whilst being made – actually pretty good for FREE ! It wasn’t for me though as the Li was just a tad on the high side since my home refurb has eaten up a lot of prims.
Last up I found this free drinks maker on the market place from the same store. I should imagine this was one of the very fist coffee machines they did. Just 3Li, no visible cup , nice menu to choose from and the cup is sent to your inventory, then you wear it. The texture on the front is a little out of focus but again for free its not so bad.
I was gazing at the Seraphim website today looking for something to do, when I spotted an advertisement for a gacha store ! I was there in a nano-second to scope it all out for you. It would seem it is one person behind it rather than lots of different sellers. Very well laid out in a sort of room/space area. Look upstairs too as there is a ton of stuff up there. Very moderately priced, I bought a rare bed for under $300. Its just full of all the things you didn’t know you needed – of course I failed miserably at being frugal and bought a ton of stuff. (This isn’t the place for clothes, jewellery, or hair etc – its all décor, shall definitely be checking in now and again to see if the stock has changed.)
