FabFree – Fabulously Free in SL

Simply Fabulous Free and Under L$75 Finds in Second Life – Since 2007


FabFree at Fifteen: Thank You!

Well, our month of celebration has come to a close.  We just wanted to take a moment to say a giant thank you to all the group members, readers, friends, designers, bloggers, vloggers…EVERYONE, who made our Fifteenth Anniversary such a fun and successful event.

As you may know, FabFree has always been a labour of love.  Our bloggers and team members don’t get paid for their work – they do it because they love it, and love giving back to our little crazy corner of the internet.  Sometimes it’s really funny to sit back and think about what Second Life is – a weird, wacky, wonderful place where we can all meet and be supremely silly together, and even that is worth celebrating!  Fifteen years of bringing you all a taste of free and fabulous silliness has always been a joy, and we’re hoping for 15 more!

To all our readers and group members who have been with us since the beginning – THANK YOU!

To those of you who have just joined us – WELCOME!

We’re happy to have you all along for the ride.

ps: Well, we may have a few other surprises up our sleeve yet…. stay tuned!

FabFree at Fifteen is HERE!

 

Wow, FabFree!  It’s finally happening and we’re soooooooo excited!  We’re turning fifteen and it’s totally time to celebrate.  We’ve got a massive shopping event set up for you all, which has so many awesome goodies.  You’ll find 15L specials in every store, an item of the designer’s choosing, PLUS a free gift for members of the Fabulously Free in SL inworld group.  Yaaas!

FabFree has been the first stop for freebie and deal hunters since 2007, and it’s been a labour of love the entire time.  FabFree bloggers and organizers do not get paid for their service, which is often a lot of work.  Please take a moment to thank the bloggers when you get a chance, because they work SO HARD and ask for nothing in return.  We do this for YOU!

Are you ready to shop ’til you drop?  You can find all the items on the FabFree at Fifteen page HERE.

We hope you enjoy, and thank you all SO MUCH for your support over the last 15 years.

FabFree Designer Features: Shanti


Announcing FabFree Designer Features

It’s been a long while since we’ve done a FabFree Designer Friday post, but I figured it was time to bring this lovely series back. You may remember this was a series of posts that Pru led that featured a FabFree Designer on Fridays. We have decided to reboot the series, but call it “FabFree Designer Features”, so you will now see them pop up throughout the week on the blog now and then!

Featuring…

Today’s featured designer is Shanti. Shanti has brought cute Bohemian styles for women to the grid since November 2012. The store is celebrating their 10 Year Anniversary later this year. Shanti is created by Arielle Jishnu, one of our very own FabFree contributors.

FabFree Group Gift

The current FabFree Group gift provided by Shanti is the Kita Clingy Dress. You can learn more about the gift in a recent blog post by Juli, which you can read here.
New Fab Free Gift @ Shanti!

Other Freebie Groups’ Gifts

Shanti also has a number of other great gifts out at the moment. Shanti swaps out these freebie groups’ gifts every couple of months. These are the current gifts.

    • They also have a Third Life group gift out called the Creola skirt. The Third Life group currently costs 10L to join.

    • They also have a Mesh Body Friends group gift, which is the cute hot cocoa and marshmallows outfit shown below, called “Hammy Kawaii Outfit”. The Mesh Body Friends group is free to join.

Gift for Picks

If you head upstairs, you can grab Shanti‘s Gift for Picks item as well. The current gift is the Valentine Bohemian Dress. To get the gift for picks gifts, you just add the store to your picks and come back in 48 hours to pick up the gift. Once you are on the picks system, you can come get all the picks gifts. I’ve seen Shanti‘s picks board change quite frequently. They also have a lot of lucky boards that rotate, and these are free for all to play. See the picture below to see some of the prizes you can win for free.
