This is the newest gift from the Nutmeg shop, it’s the ReKa group you join and the group invite is right there.
It was so hard to take a picture of it until I snuck onto Faith’s land to use one of her trees. It’s a Nutmeg brand which as any homeowner knows is a quality brand and so are all of their gifts. Only a small amount of poses but so nice and a very subtle swing movement.
Even if you don’t own an SL home still get the gifts because one day you may just be tempted to rent in SL, it’s a lot easier than you think, and you can’t do better than the decor gifts from Nutmeg.
As for the pants I promised, since they’re a reblog I’m going to hunt down a new freebie top to go with them and hopefully that should be my next post.
I’m waiting for my working day to start and was lucky enough to find freebies..worth blogging lol.
The dress is from the May24 shop. There are three group gifts, I never got around to blogging one of the dresses which is still in my invent and I will now leave that one as a surprise for you and show you this black one instead.
I nearly ignored it as often black freebies can be rather flat and ok in the pictures I’ve not really caught any of the folds and seams but they’re there and since it’s a free group then free for you to check this and the other two gifts out for yourself.
Then I went to the Asian Pacific Heritage Event. I spotted that there is a list of different talks and performances scheduled as well as stalls and of course Freebies.
The gold fans behind me are just one of the gifts as well as the pretty hair accessory. I didn’t spot any clothing which is why I decided to blog this dress in the same post. Personally, I’m chuffed with the food accessories/wearables and then I unpacked this.
This is labelled I think as a “Traditional Clothes Rack”. It’s really good. I should have stood next to it so you can get some idea of the size, I think since it’s called “Traditional” it’s designed to hold Kimono’s so that gives you some indication of how tall it is. Lots of us don’t even have a Kimono in our invent let alone a hangable one, but you can use it not just as a clothes rack but if you have some sort of draped fabric such as a flag, wall hanging etc that will look so good.
One of the reasons I log out, write the post and then before I click “publish” I always log back inworld to LM grab and make sure the gifts are still there because it has happened before that in the relatively short time it takes to do a blog post either the LM and/or the shop have gone and guess what…the NS Thrift Shop this post was about has gone..poof, vamoosed, disappeared. However, it turns out that that’s because it was maybe the OG shop of one we all now know as NUTMEG! No wonder the gifts were so good as anyone who has an SL home or wishes to have one knows this shop well.
BIG Thanks to Agapa for dropping me a note and giving me the heads up not only about the LM now being abandoned but also how it’s really Nutmeg and please remember if you ever see a mistake with a LM or a gift or any detail that I’ve gotten wrong do not hesitate to either leave a comment or drop me a note. I’m more than happy to correct a mistake or give an update. There is nothing more fustrating to see a fab item, esp if it’s free, only to find it’s wrong.
This cake is free but you’re going to have to get your own coffee as I will as I badly need a caffeine boost.
What a fab looking cake and only 2 prims.
My next stop on my hunt list was the Storax Tree shop which has some connection to the Loordes of London shop. It too also has its hunt prizes just on the wall for you to check out and buy for a linden or two.
This cake is not a hunt prize it’s a “The Shopping District” group gift and you will find it NOT on the wall with the gifts/hunt prizes but over the door…easy to see when you get there.
I’m showing you only two of the many, many gifts from the Mon Cheri shop and that does include clothing.
I didn’t want to do yet another sneaky picture of the freebies just in the shop but you needed to see them all.
Although there is a gift sign over the top of these pictures I was still surprised when I was able to grab the whole lot of them apart from the body lights (top dark picture) as I already have those. You simply buy each gifts for 0Lds.
Most of the gifts are packs of old Gacha prizes and that does inc the rares. I’ve not unpacked much but enough to know that most of the clothing will not fit me and that the decor items are low primmed and yet top shop quality and I’ve not even looked at the jewelery so far so thats what I will be doing for the rest of the afternoon.
I did what I said I was going to do and had a look around the other shops next to the Chic one from my previous post and scored what I think Faith might like.
The Azalea shop sells mainly furniture but I found this among the decor and thought of Faiths home which is where I’ve rezzed a copy of this barrow full of a flowering shrub for her to check out.
You get a few wood shades and it looks like the flowers also come in different shades. Only 2 prims but as you can see I’ve edited it and as a barrow or a thick flowering shrub each is only 1 prim.
To find this and the other group gifts, look on the stand to your left as you go into the Azalea shop.
The LM will take you to the middle of the sim and I think there are TP boards there or you can simply just walk as they’re not that distant apart.
Special mention to the Caligula shop. It’s been separated into 4 buildings, A, B, C & D.
Most of the Caligula shop is menswear and hair but check out building A & D. Building A has some really good quality army outfits and the helmets have a lot of detailing to them, sadly men only but you may know someone in SL who likes to RP. Building C though has hats for both men and women. Everything from a Viking helmet to high fashion but no sadly no gifts and even worse no demo’s! There is a “little house on the prairie” style hat I’d like to buy but no demo=no purchase for me.
One of the shops on the 30Ld linden list is called the OYI (Only Your Imagination) shop and it didn’t strike a bell with me so I went over to check it out and this is where I found this lovely group gift.
So pretty and not unreasonable at just 5 prims and that includes the little Robin on the table as well (linked). You seemed to get 2 versions and I believe it’s a quiet one and one where the bird sings, that’s something I will have to check out later.
I did have a quick look around the OYI shop as it’s not too big so I could see there is a mix of things from some scars, clothes and builds but it was at the LM where I spotted a fab item which sadly because the vendor was offline so I couldn’t buy it. Since I really want it I’ve dropped the seller a note and hopefully, they will kick the vendor and so I can return to purchase it later.
UPDATE: Looks like the thing I wanted to buy is next weeks 25Ld Tue item….I will be back on Tue to get it.
