Fab Free Designer Friday – 04/14/2017 – No Cabide

No Cabide Storefront

Hello Fab Free’rs! I hope everyone has enjoyed the start of the weekend so far. I know I am. For those that celebrating the Easter holiday, happy Easter just in case I don’t “see” you again before then! Thanks for coming by, this week’s Fab Free Designer Friday is a little shop called No Cabide. The first time I recall having encountered No Cabide is at one of the annual Cart Sales at The Wash. It’s another one of those great shops that had grown by leaps and bounds.
Gifts @No Cabide
No Cabide sells a wide variety of casual mesh and applier women’s clothing and shoes. I would describe the style of the clothing as both sexy and casual. Just inside the entrance you’ll find the “circulation” desk and the most recent new releases. If you venture to the right and look for some shiny heart shaped balloons you’ll find a wall of gorgeous group gifts. This is also where the pretty dress No Cabide has out as their FREE exclusive Fab Free group gift can be found. You may remember seeing it in Serena’s post “ It’s Friday I’m in Love.”  Of course there are several other group gifts, including a few for the FREE to join No Cabide group. Also, while you’re shopping you might spot a few piles of pretty Easter eggs scattered about. Don’t mistake those for simple decor, these eggs are priced between 1 and 15 lindens each and contain cute holiday themed clothing items. Happy Shopping Fab Free!

Fab Free Designer Friday – 04/07/2017 – Satus Inc

Satus Inc
Hello Again Fab Free’rs, thanks for coming by. Today’s Fabulous Fab Free Designer Friday post is all about Satus Inc. If you’re not already familiar with Satus Inc, they have been in Second Life for a little while now and while they are probably best known for their furniture and gadgets, they also design mesh clothing. Truth be told there is a little bit of everything to be had at Satus Inc making it a shop with something for everyone. The landing point will put you in front of the latest group gifts.
Satus Inc Group Gifts
Each gift on this wall of gifts has a helpful hover text that tells you which group tag you need to claim your FREE gift.  The Satus Inc group has a minuscule join fee of 25 linden. Most of the items do appear to be for the ladies, however there are some fun gadgets and gifts for the men as well. Additionally there is a single Midnight Madness board. This is also where you’ll find the Satus Inc gift exclusively for Fab Free group members. The Fab Free group is always FREE to join. If you head up the stairs from this spot you’ll find the ladies clothing along with a few menswear items, and some furniture pieces.
Satus Inc Sales & Offers
On the main floor next to the stairs you’ll find the sales items and special offers at Satus Inc. Through the rest of the shop you’ll find mostly small builds, furniture with poses, and gadgets of all kinds. I would highly recommend taking a moment to stop by Satus Inc and check out all they have to offer. The group gifts alone would definitely be worth the effort.  Happy Shopping!

Ashmoot Entrance Hello and Happy Friday Fab Free’rs! This week’s edition of Fab Free Designer Friday feature designer is Ashmoot. Ashmoot has been part of the Second Life shopping experience for several years, and I can honestly say I’ve never personally been disappointed in anything I’ve purchased there.

Their unique clothing style is timeless and it spans from casual to formal, and includes shoes, accessories, and lingerie. There’s also a full section of menswear with equal variety.

Fab Free Designer Friday – 03/24/2017 – Entice

Entice Main Entrance
Happy Friday Fab Free! Today’s Fabulous Designer Friday post is all about Entice. I’m pretty sure the Entice shop has been around as long if not longer than I have. They are truly a “household” name in Second Life. If you’ve never been to Entice, now is a great time to get to know this shop. They have recently redone their store, and I personally love the new layout. Entice specializes in mostly women’s mesh clothing, however they have become a one-stop-shop in that you’ll find everything from casual day wear to evening wear, lingerie, shoes, even nail appliers and hairstyles. I’m sure I’ve left something out of that list, but you get the idea! As you enter the store, you’ll see the desk with all the usual information and a few extras. There’s a subscriber group as well as the regular store group, both are FREE to join. In that first room you’ll also find the wall of information as I’ve come to call it, and as you can see in the photo below, Entice participates in several events. If you’re interested in what they have to offer at any one event, you can visit the room to the left and get a full preview including demo items when available for the current lineup of events
Entice Information & GiftsOne thing about Entice that no one can deny is how generous they are with gifts and opportunities to score FREE or inexpensive items. Just beyond the room at the entrance, after you go through a beautiful landscaped courtyard, you’ll find a second circulation desk, and a full wall of group gifts, midnight mania, and lucky boards. As I mentioned before, the Entice group is FREE to join.  This is also where you’ll find the current Fab Free exclusive group gift. You may remember this gift from Serena’s post “ Tres Joli in Rose“.  To get the Fab Free nail applier gift, don’t forget to wear your Fab Free group tag. Not a member? No problem! There is a group joiner for the Fab Free group just above the gift, and the Fab Free group is always FREE to join. Is it your rez-day? Entice wants to celebrate with you! in the same room you’ll find a corner with balloons and two FREE gifts that are available only on your rez-day. There’s also a Wardrobe gift in that area. Whew, that’s a lot of gifting goin’ on! Needless to say, a trip to Entice is well worth it, you won’t be disappointed.

Fab Free Designer Saturday – 03/18/2017 – Lil’ Tease

Lil Tease Landing Point
Hello Fab Free! Yep, this week’s edition of Fab Free Designer Friday is happening on Saturday this week. Don’t let that be a negative though, this week simply slipped away from me faster than I could keep up with! This week’s featured shop is Lil’ Tease, which is also a new-to-me shop, and I always enjoy exploring new designers. I think you will too. As the name might suggest, this is a women’s clothing shop, however I did come across at least one vendor with menswear. Still a fairly new store, this shop has a handful of mesh women’s clothing items, as well as a few extras. At the Lil’ Tease landing point, you’ll be struck by the cute pink and dark gray/black decor, I also noticed a few unicorns which kinda made my day.
LT Gifts & Boards
A few other things at Lil’ Tease, like the super sweet Fab Free exclusive group gift (Fabulously Free in SL group tag required) also made my day. No really, this completely FREE group gift is not only cute but covered in yummy sweets. To get a better look at this fantastic gift exclusive to Fab Free group members at Lil Tease, check out Astrid’s post here and Edi’s post here.  The gift is located to the left at the landing point. You’ll also see another affiliate group gift available in the same area. If you look to the right, you’ll find the two midnight madness boards, as well as a few gachas. While browsing through the shop, make sure you head to the back room and take a look at the arc of items under the “Newness” sign. Several of those items are marked just 50 lindens. Also, if you’re in the market for some poses, don’t forget to venture upstairs. Happy Shopping!

La Boheme
Happy Friday Fab Free’rs! Thanks for being here. I am happy to share with you this week’s Fab Free Designer, La Boheme. This quaint little shop is a one-stop-shop for your makeup and nail applier needs, though La Boheme is probably best known for their beautiful nail appliers. Located on the coveted Wash sim, the La Boheme store has a boutique-like feel. It’s small enough that you won’t be over-whelmed, and still large enough that you can comfortably browse the merchandise.
La Boheme 2

Just as you enter you’ll be greeted by a large stone fireplace that creates an inviting atmosphere. It’s on the shelves around the fireplace that you’ll find the “wall of information” for La Boheme. On the shelves you’ll notice various group and event affiliations. Directly across from the hearth you’ll find several 55 Thursday special nail applier sets marked at 55 lindens per set. Additionally, there is the most recent Fab Free exclusive group gift by La Boheme. These lovely appliers will work with Omega, Maitreya, and Slink nails If you’re a Belleza nail wearer the information at La Boheme says the Omega applier will work, as long as you have the appropriate relay for Omega/Belleza. As always the Fab Free exclusive group gift is FREE. You just need to wear your group tag. In the attached second room, you’ll find more nail appliers and some beautiful makeup appliers. Don’t miss the chance to stop by La Boheme and add some uniquely pretty makeup and nail polish looks to your wardrobe!

Ecko Storefront
Good Evening Fab Free’rs! Thanks for coming by. This week’s edition of Fab Free Designer Friday features a shop called Ecko. I was a little surprised that Ecko is such a new shop in Second Life. The clothing at Ecko has a cute casual style that would appeal to almost anyone. Ecko sells mainly women’s mesh and applier clothing. You’ll also find some fun accessories. At the landing point just outside the entrance you’ll be greeted by a few shop pets, and the subscriber kiosk. You’ll want to be sure to join the subscriber to keep up-to-date on all things Ecko, also subscriber members have access to 2 FREE gifts inside the store.
Ecko Info

Once inside if you browse your way to the right side of the shop you’ll find 2 FREE gifts for subscribers. Since you joined the Ecko subscriber on the way in, just click the vendors and your FREE gifts will be delivered to you.

This cute little dress was previously shown on the Fab Free blog by Kathryn. Make sure to wear your Fab Free group tag to pick up this FREE gift.  There are also a few other group gifts.

Fab Free Designer Friday – 2/17/2017 – MOoH

MOoH
Happy Friday Fab Free’rs and welcome to this weeks edition of Fab Free Designer Friday! This week’s shop is MOoH and I have to start by saying wow, this store has grown so much in the last few years. I can recall when MOoH was still a very young store with a hand-full of items. Now they have an enormous main store! I’m proud to see how far this cute shop has come. The above photo shows the entrance at the right half of the store. Yes I said right half! haha You’ll find information boards about various events and affiliations here. Inside you’ll find tons of cute quality ladies clothing in styles to suit everyday looks to formals, and most things in between. While clothing does seem to be the main focus at MOoH, there are also shoes and accessories, plus a courtyard full of gachas. You’ll notice the center gacha yard, along with a row of event information on art easels at the MOoH landing point.
More MOoH
After you’ve browsed your way through the gacha machines, which I dare you to not play, you’ll be met with another cutely decorated area of gifts and information. Here there’s a MOoH subscriber so you can stay informed without taking up a group slot. Additionally there is a re-delivery terminal, and all kinds of store information. The best info has to be the group gift info however. You should see the exclusive Fab Free group gift right away. It’s right next to that rainbow Fab Free group joiner. The Fab Free group is of course always FREE to join. Just wear your Fab Free group tag and click the gift vendor to get your FREE gift. Sheidy blogged the super cute gift in her recent post here. You’ll also find other group gifts and the MOoH shop group gifts in this cute corner. The MOoH group does have a one time join fee of 100 lindens, however the benefits are almost too numerous to list! There is of course the group gift, which you’ll need your MOoH group tag for and there’s the monthly gift gift card raffle. You’ll definitely want to take advantage of the chance to score a 500 linden gift card! Each month there are also group only discounts, a 150 linden gift card gift, there are group only Lucky Chairs, and group members get a 10% discount on the purchase of store gift cards. I’m almost certain I’ve left something off that lengthy list. I definitely encourage you to take the time to explore the MOoH store for yourself, even if it’s just to oogle all the cute decor and window-shop, you won’t be disappointed!

Fab Free Designer Friday – 2/10/2117 – Ollie’s Follies

Ollie's FolliesHappy Friday Fab Free’rs! Even better, Happy Fab Free Designer Friday! My apologies for the rather late in the day post. This week I am pleased to share with you a little about a shop called Ollie’s Follies. Everything at Ollie’s Follies is bright and colorful, including the mostly casual women’s clothing you’ll find at this bright spot. The clothing is mostly fun everyday casual clothing, however I did spot some dresses as well. One thing you’ll notice right away is that there are lots of opportunities for discounts and gifts. The store is also participating in the Nuts About You hunt. The hunt poster just outside will send you all the information about the hunt.
Ollie's Follies FreebiesAs you enter Ollie’s Follies you’ll be greeted by a colorfully decorated front desk. Here you can get store information and join the Ollie’s Follies group. The group is FREE to join at this time. There is also a re-delivery terminal just behind the desk. I love it when stores are set up to do re-delivery! If you venture to the room left of the desk, you’ll find the Ollie’s Follies exclusive Fab Free gifts. Just look for that colorful Fab Free sign. While wearing your Fab Free group tag, click the vendor and get your gifts! Don’t forget to scroll through the gifts, there’s more than one. Just in case you missed it, Edi blogged these great Fab Free group gifts in her post here. The Fab Free group is always FREE to join. Once you’ve picked up your Fab Free gifts, explore your way to the right side of the shop and you’ll find more gifts and goodies.

There is a Midnight Madness board that is giving out a FREE 100 linden Ollie’s Follies gift card. There’s no need for any groups to join this board, and just like the board says, everyone wins! I would say that 100 lindens would go to a long way toward trying a few items out if you’re new to the Ollie’s Follies brand. Also the gift cards are transferable so you can pass one to your friend, your sister, or perhaps your significant other if you don’t want to keep it for yourself. I also spotted a few weekend sale items in the same room. So if you’re looking for a cute spot to do a little shopping and score some freebies this weekend, Ollie’s Follies might be just the spot!
