I’m a Potato & Sunday is sorted.(LOTS of FREEBIES).

This is going to be a long post so I will break it down into bite size pieces.

The blouse is one of the hunt prizes from an event called “Party People Fair & Hunt”.

What you’re looking for is cute little potatoes and there are so many of them that in just the short distance I walked from the LM to the stalls I think I picked up about 8 of them.  Then I logged out did a quick google and found the link for pictures of what’s for sale and what are gifts.  The sale items are in the first picture and the gifts are in the second.  All of the hidden potatoes are in the middle of this sim, it’s a maze, and so badly hidden even a numpty like me had no problem.

Party People Sale & Hunt Prizes Pictures

Party People LM

The hair is a Mina one and it’s a Gacha Win from of course The Arcade. I’ve not even tried to get in there! I mean OMG is it even worth trying for at least 2 weeks? Naturally, I got mine sent to meeeee.  I usually when given the option “style” my hair with the hair tendrils hanging down framing my face but in this case, the fit of those scarves is just too good. I’m wearing the rigged version but if need be there is an unrigged version. From what I could see if you win one of the hairs in the Gacha you get a random shade of hair and a preset hud of scarf colours, the other prizes are of the earrings and other scarf huds.  Since I’m not a jewellery wearer I’m not sure I’d be too keen on winning them but they are really good earrings, I know you can’t see them from this angle but they’re quality hoops and beads and can be worn with anything.  TBH I’m cutting this short and putting the LM not only to just the Mina’s main shop BUT also to the Seraphim Yardsale.

Mina’s Main Shop.

Seraphim Yardsale

The Seraphim Yardsale is the place to go to if you want your fix of Arcade prizes but don’t want to wait and don’t want to risk not getting the prize you really want.  All of the items are laid out in a very neat and orderly way.  I’ve already picked up a couple of items I wanted without the stress of actually going to the Arcade itself.

The reason I’ve added a bit about the Seraphim yardsale is because of the Mina hair. It is rare to see a Mina Gacha hair up for resale, people are just happy with their prizes and I just never see them but I’ve noticed that the earrings and scarf huds have been boxed up for resale at the Seraphim yard sale.  So if you want the earings but not the hair or you want a different scarf hud OR if you want to get rid of the earrings or a scarf hud then pop over to the Seraphim Yardsale, they have made it super easy to buy and sell but there is a group joining fee to be able to do this but if you end up with a lot of unwanted stuff then think about packing it up and letting someone else buy it.

LAST chapter.  I know Faith did a post about the “Tres Chic” event and now that everyone has rushed over to The Arcade it means this event has finally calmed down!  So I went and grabbed all of the Birthday gifts and although I’ve not even started to unpack I have a sneaky suspicion there are some decent prizes in there inc SHOES!

Tres Chic

Sunday is sorted, I’m just about to click “Publish” do some RL work I have to do and then in a little while I can log back in with a guilt-free conscience, do the whole Party People event and then settle down on my platform and work my way through all of the goodies I’ve picked up.

Risky business.(3Ld Gacha).

Somehow I ended up at a little yardsale even though I swore I wasn’t going to Gacha again this month, just like I swore I wasn’t going to eat those chocolate dipped pretzels!  So I succumb and picked up more stuff I don’t need and then I spotted three of those new and super cheap Gacha machines, in the corner under the big red SALE sign.

You know the ones I mean the ones where the person just wants rid of the random piles of stuff they have so they shove it in a Gacha and slap such a bargain price were suckered into clicking away…I LOVE THEM!

The boxes in this picture are the actual delivery boxes and then on their own are stunning decor features as you get all that lovely details and only 2 prims.

Look at Ma Big Frilly Ass, it’s so detailed, I’d hate to have to iron this thing in RL.

Don’t worry about the fits as you get all the main mesh fits for the clothes, plus they are the sort of clothing everyone will be able to wear, and as for the shoes I think it’s the 3 main mesh feet fits but they are the medium height.

But guess what???? ONLY 3Lds a try, yup only 3 bloddy Lindens.  I had to TP away before I went click crazy because there is a lot more to win in that Gacha and I would love to win it all.

UPDATE. Because you just know when I went over to grab the LM I would get suckered into splashing out more cash on the Gacha but this time I tried the other 2, one is for 5Lds a pop and I won some really nice stuff inc a rare but the other 3Ld one must be empty as I paid but nothing was sent but I’m not bothered as it was just a few Lindens.  I’m definitely not going back again because you know I will just keep on clicking.

Public Service Announcement (The Arcade and not getting in!)

shopping

There have been a few debates about Arcade yardsales here and there. I’m firmly in the yard sale camp, especially for The Arcade. It’s the one event I really just give up trying to get into in the first week – it drives me NUTS waiting and waiting, especially as I see various goodies being used in blogs and photos. So, what’s a girl to do hmm?

The last few rounds of The Arcade I have done ALL of my shopping at yard sales. Some are generic gacha yard sales, some are specific for one or two types of events. My favourite of them all is the one run by Seraphim. It’s for the latest round of The Arcade ONLY – this means you can get your paws on the gear from the current round almost straight away on opening day – brilliant huh? I went over there on day one and scored all the items I had marked as “buys”. (Yes, tragically I go through the Arcade listing on Seraphims blog and write down everything I want before I actually go shopping. I just find it easy to forget what I wanted and / or get carried away on a gacha fuelled spending frenzy.)

The area is alphabetically laid out by designer name, which makes it so much easier to locate the articles you want to buy. Pull price is the norm, although I’m not sure about rares as I haven’t wanted to buy any and haven’t seen any there. Do check that the item is in the box before you buy – do this by going into edit mode on the item you want to buy and peeking into the contents tab. Also don’t forget to actually “take” what you’ve bought after paying!

Some people claim yard sales are taking money from the designers pockets, but I really don’t get with this line of thinking. Someone played the machine and paid the designer. They played multiple times or didn’t get what they wanted orrrrr got doubles/triples. The items are transferable, so can be traded or sold. What’s the problem? I have a budget in SL , same as real life and unless a gacha machine is really cheap (ie:$25L per pull) I wont be stood there filling the machine with my dosh until on the umpteenth pull I get what I wanted. Perhaps after I buy from a yardsale, the person goes back and plays more of the machines – who knows?!

Anywayyyyy, link below for the Seraphim yard sale, plusa handydandy link for their blog with The Arcade listings all neatly laid out for your perusal.

Lazy (includes freebie)

The Challenge Bauwerk NEW - coldLogic calle jeans - KCS Fanny bra & top mesh FREE

I was reading one of Zans blog posts and decided to head over to take a quick scoot around – yes, I know I’m lazy ! The ” Spring is back hunt” is a sweet little event based around shops in a mall. I picked up the top I’m wearing above for 1L  in it, and decided to wear it while I took some shots of the globe trotter trunk from Bauwerk22769. This is their item in this months round of The Challenge – a desk made from a trunk plus chair that is stuffed with some lovely poses.

FREE bra & top KCS - Olive the daisy hair NEW - Nylon Outfitters Lucky cat charm

Closer view of the top called “Fanny”, its in two pieces – a bra and an off the shoulder shirt . Delectable plummy colour with a plaid grained pattern on it. This is made by KCS and was pretty easy to spot thankfully ! My hair is also new, and is from Olive @ The Arcade event , plus my lucky charm cat necklace by Nylon Outfitters. I got a bit obsessed with the kitty necklace and bought quite a few different ones, only 50L a pop on the gacha machine. If you can manage to squeeeeze into the Arcade event yay! I couldn’t so got all my items at yardsales. Pea’s Arcade yardsale is about the best I’ve found, laid out alphabetically and easy to navigate – current round of The Arcade only.

Take a seat (Freebies n stuff).

Now that I packed up all of my Christmas stuff I decided it was time to really sort out my house and in doing so I came across a chair I forgot I had.

seat1

The chair comes from [[RH]] Design House and is called Cafe Chair.  It cost me only 80Lds and I chose the pink but there are many other colour options available.  Some really good poses in it which is why I bought it and as it happens it  turns out to be perfect for this dressing table from Hideki which sorry was a Gacha win, however since I buy most of my Gacha items from Yardsales so if you scout around you may find it but if you want to risk it then the Gacha and others are in Hideki’s main shop.  Everything on the dressing table is just my junk.

sim

Since my last visit this little shopping mall in the sky has had a revamp and this is whats just outside of the shop.  A small street of little shops so freaking cute.  So of course I took a wander down and I found some freeness, Gachas and Yardsales but don’t bother with the Yardsales cos I bought them ALL!! actually no I didn’t buy everything  I left some for others but they all seemed to be priced between 10-30Lds and some where to good to miss.

seat3

There is some freebies and as you can see from the posters above my head this duck chair and those leaves are freebies.

seat2

There is also some Gachas which were cheap, but sorry can’t remember how much now.  Sadly I didn’t win this one which comes with 2 poses but I did win one of the little Duckie bags.

I also seemed to have picked up another gift which from what I could work out is a childs Hoover which is a wearable and when you start to walk it attaches itself to your bum and carries you, it’s very funny.  There are a couple of children’s clothes, toys shop here and I had some Awww moments.  Even if you’re not into kids a few of these make great decor items.

seat5

My last seat was one of the many freebies from [[RH]]Design House.  I’ve blogged them before and highly recommend you come for the 1 prim desk chair set which has some lovely detailing even for such low prims!

Make sure to walk out back of RH Designs as there is a selection of homes.  Mainly bleached/whitewashed in style.  I don’t think there is a demo out for the Winter House but that is only 60Lds and I have that house and I can recommend it.  Lovely texturing, lighting and detailing and a very reasonable prim count.  There is also 2 Lucky Boards just inside of the front doors.

Winter warmers

coldLogic NEW - clawtooth hat hair combo snowbunnie @ The Arcade

The coldLogic fairies have been sooper busy and bought us another release for Winter ! This is “tresser” and is a skirt and sweater outfit, both pieces are separate so you can mingle them into other outfits too.

I love the style of the skirt, heavy fabric but with enough flow to make it girly. The sweater is classic winter. My hat & hair is from the current round of the Arcade and is by clawtooth. Its called Snow bunny, you have to try your luck on the gacha machine for the hair colour but that hat does have a HUD to give you lots of colour options. I went to  a yard sale to get mine because frankly I don’t have cash to waste getting  hair colours I don’t like ! (yard sale I found that carries ONLY the current Arcade round listed below)

coldLogic NEW - Argace hair new

This is “farris”, a gorgeously snuggly long line sweater with roll neck, its got a side split at the bottom and really lovely embroidered edge on the cuffs and hem. The skirt is knee length and also has a side split. There is another set the same style called “chapin”, darker colours and the skirt is hounds-tooth checked.

coldLogic NEW - hair and shawl hair @ the arcade

Last up for today is “love”, similar to “tresser” but the plainer option really. Check out the neat turn backs on the cuffs, they fit purrrfectly ! Im wearing it with another yard sale find from The Arcade by The secret store. You get the shawl and hair attached, options on the hair, are bangs (or fringe) side bangs, no bags. There are lotssss of shawl types to win, but if youre frugle frank like moi – a yard sale is the way to go to get what you actually want. Thanks coldLogic team ❤
