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

Good afternoon, Fab Readers. My post today is going to interest our newer members of the Grid because the more experienced among us have surely already taken full advantage of my finds today. I’m speaking of the 1L Shop at Gabriel. Of course, I am a frequent shopper at Gabriel… it’s something abut the name….  At any rate, I wandered to the back of the main store today to see the newly added 50% Discount area. Excellent deals there, by the way… just none I can show on here for75L or less. However, the 1L shop is a delight. The stock is clearly being rotated through and most of what I found was completely new on the 1L shelves.  Like this stunning pinstripe suit I picked out. I do love a good suit. I’ve said it before : Boys have swagger, Men have character… Gentlemen have style.

Also, before I go, I want to offer a hearty welcome to Mr. Korday. Its good to have another gentleman in the mix. Cheers!

A little freedom

A little freedom

Hey FabFree, I hope your Wednesday is going awesome.  You know if it isn’t, I sympathize. I’ve had a weird couple of days myself. But you know what always helps? You guessed it Free stuff!!!  And what’s even better than free stuff? Fabulously Free free Group Gifts!

Like this simply gorgeous gown from Sweet Willows. I was on the FabFree chat when I went to pick up this gown and I think I may have pestered all the chatters with all my talk about what’s going on in the Sweet Willows shop! But there’s SO much! Special sales, gifts and even a 50% discount when you wear your FabFree Group tag!  Anyway, the Ivanka gown is the FabFree group gift and it’s just splendid. It comes with a HUD to change the color/patterns of the over dress (the black part) and the skirt and top (the white parts). The HUD has eight colors for each and it’s just endlessly mix and matchable!

Sizes Included

  • Belleza Freya
  • Maitreya
  • SLink – Hourglass, Physique

My other FabFree Gifty is the lovely snowflake choker from Chop Zuey.  The Silent Sweet Night choker comes with a HUD to change the color of the choker and the three beautiful snowflakes suspended on it. Eight colors, both with either silver or gold metals and eight gemstone colors await your creative control.

Making Holiday Memories

Holiday Memory Making

In all honesty little moments like this one are my favorite part of the holidays. I find the most joy in things like wrapping presents, and cozying up with my love to watch Christmas movies. It might be an unusual year to say the least, but we can still find moments to enjoy the little things that matter most. Blue and I got into a festive mood recently with the free hunt prizes by Always Design and Park Place on the Peace on Earth Hunt. The merriment was made even better thanks to the 60L Happy Weekend offer from Muniick. Keep reading for all the details, and enjoy the weekend Fab Free!

Always Design

Generally speaking I’m not the sort that wants to wear matching outfits. There’s something about matching pajamas however that make me want them. These matching his and hers footie pajamas are the free Peace on Earth Hunt prize at Always Design. They come with a color change hud that lets you pick from a handful of solid colors for the men, and stripes for the ladies. Also, these jammies can be worn by classic and mesh avatars.

Hunt Hint – “I have the best place to watch you.”

Mens Sizes Included: Mi Mado, Adin Bento, Onupup, Slink Male, Belleza Jake, Signature Gianni, Fitmesh Classic + Alpha Layer

Womens Sizes Included: Fitmesh (xs – XL) + Alpha Layer, Belleza, Maitreya, Slink

Park Place

The cuddles are brought to you by Park Place! All silliness aside, the very generous free Peace on Earth Hunt prize at Park Place includes this cute PG ottoman, the occasional table, the lamp, and all the little holiday goodies you see sitting on top of the table. Everything is copy so you can rez out multiples, and the lamp can be turned on or off via touch. The ottoman has male and female sit poses, and quite a few cuddles.

Hunt Hint – “You’ll find me in Wilmington.”

Muniick

There’s nothing like the holidays to make a person feel nostalgic. That said, if the 60L Happy Weekend offer by Muniick doesn’t get you right in the Christmas feels, I don’t know what would. This weekend only as part of the Happy Weekend Sale you can get this Christmas Edition of Muniick’s Vintage Television Cabinet set for just 60 linden. The 6 piece set has a console television with11 Christmas and New Years channel options, working model train, sad Christmas tree, Ho Ho Ho blocks, cinnamon stick candles, working Christmas lights, a bonus tv with non holiday themed channels, and a larger version of the model train.

Hoodie Season

Hoodie Season

There has been a lot of talk about “sweater weather” as the season shifts from summer to autumn. This year I think I’ll refer to it as “hoodie season.” At the moment little sounds nicer than a comfy cozy hoodie and a crisp cool autumn afternoon.

Gabriel

My over-sized hoodie by Gabriel is a free gift (no group needed) at Neo Japan. This blue and purple gradient hoodie is unisex. So guys, don’t hesitate to pick this free gift up also! I also very much like the open shoulders, and the giant kangaroo pocket. I think I just might live in this for a while.

Female Sizes Included: Meshbody Legacy, Maitreya Lara

Male Sizes Included: Meshbody Legacy Male, Belleza Jake, Signature (Gianni, Geralt)

e.marie

Did you peep the cool earrings I have on? They are the latest group gift at e.marie. I love this take on the classic hoop earring. I think these are elegant enough to wear with formal looks, and still subtle enough to be worn casually. The e.marie group is 50L to join. This group gift includes a hud that allows you to pick from several metal choices, and these earrings can be resized.

Purely Tentacular

Purely Tentacular

What’s the weirdest ice cream flavour you’ve ever had?  There are so many insane concoctions these days that I never know if people are joking or whether they are creating genuinely delicious foods.  You may have heard of onion flavoured ice cream (it’s a real thing), but the tendency to the strange doesn’t lie only at the feet of the ice cream world.  Don’t even get me started on molecular gastronomy.  Is that still a thing?

The Shade, The Shade of it all!

The Shady Seasonal Hunt takes off today, and there are several brands participating!  When you join the free group, you’ll be able to access the different gifts (all priced at 20L) in each store on the sim.  I headed to Mug, where I grabbed this fun skirt (it would match very well with the group gift I posted yesterday).  It comes with an HUD to change the skirt colour to four different neon colours, as well as options to change the fishnet or remove it.  As with many Mug clothing items, you also have different body types taken into account, so this skirt could be considered a unisex item.  I also grabbed my be-tentacled ice cream from Dots for just 20L.  There are six different flavours, and three different tentacle colours!  Just search for the beach balls when you’re in each store, and you’re sure to find something fun!

Comforting Silence

Comforting Silence

At times silence can be comforting. It allows you to pause for a moment and clear your mind. Open a window, feel the breeze, close your eyes, and take a deep breath. Letting your mind go blank for a few minutes, in this world of self isolation. There is no better way to be comforted then by wearing something that makes you feel that way.

Comforting Hoodie
The warm, softness of a fleece hoodie, gives you that feeling. Right now you can pick one up for free at the Neo Japan event. Gabriel has put out this black hoodie for both men and women. It is absolutely free, no need to join a group. Just click on it and it’ll be delivered to your inventory. It can be worn solo or with a black or white tank which is also provided in the folder for free. Hop on over to Neo Japan, grab this freebie before the event ends, on April 19th.

Hover

Hover

Greetings, Fab Free Readers. After a considerable amount of time and effort overcoming some computer troubles Juli and I are back online. I was afraid I’d miss the entire February L’Homme round of free gifts. Thank heavens it’s not over yet!

Lift Off

Hilted always has something odd or awesome… or awesomely odd… to offer. This Hoverbike is certainly awesome! This is the Hydron Hoverbike and you can take it home for free when you join the free L’Homme Group. I strongly recommend the L’Homme group for much more than free gifts. Each issue is packed full of great photography and style for men.

Cold Shoulder

Also on my rounds of L’Homme offerings, this “Loose Down Jacket” from Gabriel. The shrugged off jacket comes with a choice of a white or black tank top. It may not keep you warm… but you’ll look pretty hot. (Hush, Juli!)

Sizes Included

  • Belleza – Jake
  • Signature – Geralt, Gianni

 

Most Designers leave their gifts out until next round but not always. So don’t delay.

Came for the Rides, Stayed for the Churros

Hi hi, have you ever been to an amusement park in Second Life? There’s been so many through the years, some of them are still around, some are long gone, but they can be pretty fun places, if not great places for pictures. Even this one, with it’s ghosts and many other spooky things.

I dropped by the other day by Gabriel and stumbled into a lot of goodies. There’s a whole section of 1L and 49L items, group gifts and free for everyone gifts. You will even see some little signs by some of the vendors where you can pick up some free shoes. A lot of what you will find is for male avatars, yet there are also accessories for everyone along with some unisex and female clothing items.

 

For other things you’ll see in this post, Maru Kado also has a lot of gifts (you will need to join their group for free to pick up most), from fun accessories to a selection of old booths for past editions of Japonica, one of which i’m using as a backdrop, tho of course they can be handy for many things more. And there’s also a hair from bonbon. You can pick it up for free if you belong to the group ( cost: 99L). It comes with a ton of colors and  both with the koala headband and without.

About the jackets:

You’ll see three different tops/jackets you can pick up for free at Gabriel, there’s no group join required. The three of them come in versions for both male and female avatars. Two of them come with swords as an accessory

Tweed

As Stan told you, Gabriel is having a huge clearance sale and an entire section of the store is all priced at 1Linden! You could get an entire wardrobe for the price of one piece of clothing. And from a premier Second Life designer!

Outdoors

After I picked up this stunning tweed jacket and bag, I headed out to my new favorite hiking spot, confident that I was the best dressed man on the SIM. ( Stop rolling your eyes, Juli ) The ‘Zip Up Tweed Jacket’ comes with the smart leather bag but you can wear each separately. Each color of the jacket is sold separately but at this price, you can easily scoop up all of them if you so desire. This amazing sale will certainly not last long so don’t delay.

Tackling Two Resolutions at Once

Woodsy Green

Hello there Fab Free!  I’ve been on the lookout for wintry menswear items to share with you all seeing as how that’s one of my New Year’s resolutions.  Ripley told me about this awesome free denim jacket and hoodie and wouldn’t you know it?  A certain female blogger beat me to it!  This time, when I heard about the fantastic clearance sale going on over at Gabriel, I didn’t give her a chance to see if any of the dollarbies would fit her avatar.  I sent her on a long walk with the pupster, and headed over to the shop myself to see what I could pick up.

Fisherman’s Knit Sweater

Another of my goals for 2019 is to do  more fishing with (or without) man’s best friend.  I’m still not so sure at all that Ripley is man’s best friend.  First, he abandoned me to run off for an almost empty box of Ripley snacks, then he went and told Kat about MY denim jacket/hoodie.  Anyway, I might not have a fishing pal, but I certainly have a thick, high neck sweater to ward off watery breezes.  I really like the olive green and chunky knit on the sweater I scooped up at the Gabriel Clearance Sale.  It set me back just one Linden dollar and is sure to become a chilly weather fave.  Although the package didn’t include versions for mesh bodies, by adjusting the alpha layer on my Slink Physique body, I had no problem finding the right size for me.

Sizes Included:

  • XS, S, M, L, XL
  • Includes alpha layer for classic avatars

Olive Chinos

While grabbing the High Neck Sweater, I spotted a pair of olive Chinos out of the corner of my eye, and thought they’d be a perfect match for my new fishing top.  Once again, there was no version for mesh avatars in the package, but since these pants were on sale for just 1 Linden dollar, I decided to give them a go.  As you can tell from my photo, after adjusting the alpha layer on my mesh body, they worked out swimmingly.  Ugh, maybe I should have chosen a different descriptor.  Who wants to think of swimming when you are going fishing?  I’ll just test my luck, I guess. 😉

Sizes Included:

  • XS, S, M, L, XL
  • Includes alpha layer for classic avatars

What Fishing Trip Would Be Complete Without Boat Shoes?

The answer would be not many.  Gabriel had me covered, again for just a 1 Linden dollar investment.  At the Clearance Sale, you can pick up this handy set of footwear in multiple hues, all for just 1 Linden dollar each.  I’m wearing the Camel colored set, but you can also pick up similar models in blue, red and red brown shades.  They were not designed for mesh body feet, but since they could be repositioned, I was easily able to get them to fit just right, without having to use the alpha layer.

I’m sure there will be more posts featuring items from the Clearance Sales over at Gabriel, I happened to spot a familiar blogger there shopping, and I picked up a few more items myself.  Until next time, happy shopping!
