No! No! No! (Freebies & Bargains).

I simply refuse to start getting into the Christmas mood until maybe the first week of December but this Humbug Sheep was just too good to not show you now plus it gives me every excuse to babble on again.

The reason I can’t delay showing you Humbug is that I picked him up from a Redeux event.  We all know this event well but this one is just for Black Friday/Weekender and so basically it’s only on for 3 or 4 days….now I’m LM grabbing I can see this does go on till the 3rd which is Monday.

Anyhow almost every stall has a gift out for us and even I have indulged in treating myself to a few paid-for items as there are some great bargains and nice stuff to be had.

I am now going to have to log in, sit on something and work my way through my 2 hoards as my invent is as bloated as my stomach is after eating a whole tub of Ben n Jerry’s.

PS. I clicked on Humbug here and this is the message I got.

“Baaaa HUMBUG!: Christmas is stupid anyway”

Then I clicked again which was too soon after the last message…it made me chuckle.

“Baaaa HUMBUG!: Oh come on… a sheep has needs too you know….I’m off taking a crap. Try again in a minute.”

Black Friday & Cyber Monday.

I didn’t “Blush”. (30Ld Items).

“Make me blush” is a newly opened event and it was nice and quiet so I thought I’d brave the sexiness and see what’s on offer.

Although the items on offer at this event are mainly clothes there was enough decor/landscaping items to keep me happy.

This isn’t a freebie event where each stall has a gift, free or cheap, set out for us but what it does have is on each stand is items for only 30Lds and believe it or not this fantasy coach was only 30Lds!

You get 2 versions one with and one without the lights, the lit one is much prettier.  Only 34Lds as well, less for the unlit one.  They come in a handy rezzer but it’s only that ladder and the drivers cushions which are linked so it’s easy to clear up once you’ve had your fun because yup it has an “adult” menu and I didn’t adult with it lol.  Mainly because I was on my own and secondly I just don’t “adult” in SL.

You will find this on the M.Law Design stand, and anyone who has an SL home will know that shop.  The rezzed example is smaller than the one you get which is proper full AV sized.  There was also on another stall a very rustic burlap lined bath which I almost bought but a quick check showed me that I already owned it, just in a different shade and without the adult menu, so I didn’t get it but again that one was also a 30Ld offer.

It’s a perfect sized event, big enough to have everything you could want to look at but small enough that you’re not a bit overwhelmed.  I did spot one gift on one of the stalls but I didn’t unpack it as I suspect it’s clothes and not in my fit.

Old Friends.(Dollarbies).

There are some shops in SL that I visit on a regular basis waiting for the newest Group Gift and !g0 is one of them and nope no new Group gift.

Then I had a brainwave because did you know that there is a discount and gift department? F*ck yeah I kid you not!

Lots and lots of Dollarbies and although they’re marked as Group Gifts they’re old ones so you don’t even need to be in the group just pay a Linden and they’re yours.

Just the top in this case…I swear SL is just like RL where I have my fav jeans.  I’m now wondering if I can get away with green jeans in RL as well.

Some of the clothes are older and come in the S,M,L etc sizes and some are newer and come in Mesh bod fits.

To find the discounted items and the Dollarbies you can either use the shop TP, it’s the stack of boxes near the LM or walk to the first door of the shop to your right and they’re upstairs.

Think about joining the !g0 group it’s one of the groups I have been in almost from the beginning. I LOVE the !g0 style I also love the regular Group Gifts and often a certain colour of a new release item has been set to half price for Group members and then, of course, we have CHRISTMAS! I know it’s way too early to be thinking of Christmas and Advent Calendars but when it comes to !g0 and their Calendar if you’re going to just do one this year make it !g0’s as the gifts are outstanding.  You do have to be in the group but it’s ONLY 50Lds! Still the same piddling price all these years later.

Check out the whole shop as there is everything from floaty hipster to costumes.  I have an amazing hat/hair from here which when I feel like wandering SL dressed up like a lady and not some cheap-ass blogger emblazoned with “demo” signs I put on a gown and this hat/hair and float around like Lady Muck or if I’m feeling it I pull on my Ballet shoes and the best Tutu which I bought from !g0 and pirouette my way through SL.

PS. I think that fox is stalking me.

I’ve found my feet and these 35Ld bargains.(Mention of Freebies & Lesson 101).

Yup, I’ve managed to recover the rest of my invent inc my feet lol.  I’ll put how I did it at the end of this post and also cut and paste the very helpful advice I got off Imp, you all get nicknames from me.

I’ve been a member of the Legendaire group for quite a while now and you get frequent notices of some superb offers and freebies but it has been quite a while since I popped over until now.

I zoomed in on these as soon as I walked into the Outlet and Group Gift Room and once I’d tried the demo on and found they fitted over my fav jeans they were in the proverbial shopping bag.

You do get 2 versions, socks or sockless, and obviously, I’m wearing the sockless ones as I’m not too keen on the socks.  You also get a 10 colour hud which allows you to change the socks, laces and boot.  Only 35Lds a bargain as well.

Next to these on the wall is a full outfit of a shirt/skirt and these boots for the same price which makes for an even greater bargain but the boots in that pack don’t have the colour hud and I wanted the colour hud more than the full outfit.

So one wall is lovely discounts and the other is Free to join Group Gifts.  I did spot some new to me stuff but I didn’t bother grabbing.

PS.  To get a demo sent to you, I suggest you do try it out first, just click on the picture and have a demo sent.

As for recovering Lost Invent this is how I did it which is one step more than you used to have to do.

“In firestorm go to avatar>preferences>network&files>directories tab, at the top, next to the cache size slider is a single button “clear inventory cache”. Instead of clearing the default cache”

In the old days you just had to go into the “Network & FIles” and “clear cache” but it looks like you now need to do this one step further.  DON’T PANIC if you’re not tech-savvy, it’s actually quite simple and clear…go  check it now.

This dress will age you.(Free, Wearable Demo’s,Cheapies).

The design of this dress is an SL Classic.  Many years ago this design was used by many of the top shops in SL and at one stage it was my “go-to” outfit.  I even remember that Faith bought me a cream version of it for me as a gift!

I picked this up at ALB Design and the design and layout of the shop hasn’t changed much over the years but I must confess that I always get a little smile on my face when I tp over to this rambling shop.

You will have to hunt for this because all the Free Wearable Demos, Freebies, 10Ld items and Group Gifts (Cost I believe 150Ld to join) are just dotted randomly around the shop on the walls with the full-priced items and the only way to spot them is by the hovering text over them.

Not everything in this shop will be to everyone’s taste but you need to persevere as although a lot of this stock has been around for as long as this dress there are some gems to be found and new items but this shop is known mainly for its amazing ethnic textures, bold patterns, unusual colours etc.

So TP over and have a wander around.

“”Old World” Charm.(Dollarbies).

I spotted a flapping fish being used as decor and I want it for my beach so I grabbed the info and that’s how I ended up back at a shop called “Old World”.

This is a shop which flys a bit under the radar and yet it’s STUFFED with such good stuff.  A lot is in the Role Play vein yet so much of it is perfect for anyone’s home but mainly garden.  For people who have small plots of land, there are ready-made veg gardens where you simply rezz and enjoy.

At the LM are a whole load of Dollarbies.  This Pavillion is one of them, just stunning and it’s a good reflection of the standard of the designs you can buy and only 11 prims.

This is as good now as it was when it was first set out for us.  I think it has 4 textures and this is the one I like the best.it

Oh Lord, I love bagels and these bagels look good enough to eat. You get 2 in the pack both wearables but you can rezz one as decor as it’s only 1 prim.  The second one comes with a sort of “hold helper” which is a bit like an “ankle lock” and as you can see it makes for a good pose.

That potted plant is another Dollarbie.  There are many more and if you want to splash out it’s only 20Lds to join the group and there are some handy decor items.  I may join it just to grab the heap of snow-covered pumpkins which will look great at Wintertime.

As for the fish, I’m going to have to walk around yet again as although I’ve checked out the Marketplace shop it’s not there.

How odd! (Freebies).

The bra top is a new freebie from “Elegance Boutique” and the panties are an old freebie from “Elegance Boutique” lol.

The thing is that even though this is an SLink P fit it’s not the best fit, as you can see if I use the Alpha you can see it if I don’t use the Alpha it buries into my AV. The “Odd” thing is that Elegance Boutique is really usually very good with its fits and esp its gifts so I forgive them lol.  I, obviously haven’t been able to try on the other mesh fits so it may just be the SLink ones.  This comes in all the main mesh body fits and 3 texture options.

You will find this with the old gifts up the stairs and thats also where you will find these panties as they’re an old gift. Nope that dot of light is neither from my hoo-ha or the panties it’s the lights on the blanket behind me, what you do get is a decent-sized hud of very usable colours.

PS. This one is for Faith because she maybe away but she does check on the blog…I thought I was RICH! Then I spotted the note lol,  we are now 4 weeks, 6 days, 12 hours and 46 seconds in credit.
