2 Extremes. (Freebie(sss)).

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.

OH NO! So much temptation! (Dollarbie).

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.

A Tale Of Three Coffee Machines (Free items)

No 59 deluxe coffee machine 3Li

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.

Free coffee machine 12Li

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.

Free coffee machine 3Li

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.

Which would you have chosen?

Not Free – But VERY Interesting!

Oh_La_La_neon_sign_grande

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.)

Free gift & Inexpensive

After heading to the Kowloon chair competition that Zan blogged about below – I checked out a few of the makers of the chairs stores. Totally chuffed with my lucky board win at bbqq – this moon cake and tea on a tray is just 1Li. You need to join the group to win and the group is free.

While I waited for my initial to come up on the boards (it didn’t take long!) I had a look at the store and found these super cute lamps, all one piece including the flex and plug – $25L and just 1Li for the whole thing! They light up and off by touch – they are going in my new SL home for sure.

Carbs, Coffee, Discount & Freebies.

I’m just meandering my way through SL and ended up at Hideki and YASS I can feed my Gacha Addiction for only 40Lds a try.

As you can see this is only a 3 day sale and I will assume as it logically would have started on Friday and end today as it’s Sunday. So a quick snap is all I’m going to show you as I can’t wait to click away.

Before you go inside check out the shop wall as there are also some free group decor items.

It’s “Fonzo’s Birthday”. (10Ld table & Hunt Info).

The cart sale outside of the “The Artist’s Shed” still isn’t up and running and it’s such a regular event so it’s a reminder to us that we don’t know whats going on with people in RL when they can’t do the regular things they do in SL… you know what I mean?

As always when I went into the The Artist’s Shed shop I ended up walking away with a little extra decor item and a couple of freebies which I’m not gonna show you. This table wasn’t free or a hunt item as it costs 10Lds.

At only 2 prims and a lovely weather worn look to it I’m pretty sure I can find a place for it on my sim.

There is from what I could see only one hunt going on in the shop and it’s because it’s “Fonzo’s Birthday”. What you’re looking for is a gift box and there is an easy hint for you to find it. BTW they have been blogged before but under the desk is some huggable corndogs which also make great decor items as well.

The hunt that is going on is a “Purple Sloth Productions” so I checked out their headquaters where I picked up a “Purple sloth hangy thing” which is a cute wearable although from a distance it does look as though I have a dead mouse dangling from my fingers lol. The headquaters are in the middle of a small shopping mall and although the shops do seemed to be very child themed in what they sell sometimes you can find a great decor/fun item in these places. I certainly will be checking them out when I log back in.
