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.
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.
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!
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.
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!
Let the madness begin! 😛
After a hiatus of a few months, the monthly Midnight Madness event is returning at midnight, 11 March 2017.
You can check out a preview of this month’s gifts right here.
About Midnight Madness:
- Fifteen (15) designers take part in the event, offering some fabulous, FREE gifts. Gifts are limited to 1,500 pieces each.
- Two (2) gifts per designer are offered. The first gift board will go live on Saturday at 12:00 a.m. SLT. The second board goes live on Saturday at noon SLT.
- If you missed out on a gift you really wanted, be sure to be at the store by noon SLT when the “Last Chance” vendors go live. This will be your last chance to pick up the gifts, and only 250 of each item will be available. Last Chance items are NOT FREE but will be available at a discounted price.
- IMPORTANT: Security orbs will be up at each store during the event, allowing a maximum Avatar Rendering Cost (ARC) allowance of 50,000. You can check your ARC by going to the Avatar menu > Health > Show Complexity > Render Weights on Avatar (for Firestorm users, go to Avatar > Avatar Health > Show Avatar Complexity Information).
Visit the Midnight Madness website for more information.
Mad Survival Skillz
If you join the free Monthly Midnight Madness in-world group, you will find a “MMM Survival Kit” in the notices. The kit includes a TP HUD (which helps you jump around quickly to the participating stores) and a full-body alpha.
Remember, nobody cares what you look like, so don’t be afraid to use the full-body alpha. You’ll want to get in and out of each store as quickly as possible to grab as many gifts as you can, so keeping lag down is a good thing.
Also, be kind, and don’t linger. The sims fill up fast (sometimes even before the round begins), so once you pick up your gift, TP out so someone else can come in.
Most of all, have fun… and good luck! 😎
Happy 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.
As 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!
Once again it’s Fab Free Designer Friday, and today’s featured designer is Kamiri! This shop is a ladies clothing store, with a mix of mesh and applier clothing. The best way to describe the clothing style at Kamiri would be colorful and fun! You’ll find a lot of cute flirty outfits in bright playful colors. This store is also really great for those who like applier clothing, it’s not often you find stores with so much to offer in the way of appliers. Additionally there are tons of way to score FREE or inexpensive items throughout the Kamiri store. Since there are so many gifts and goodies to be had, I split everything up into first and second floor finds. Pictured above are just the gifts and promotions I was able to find on the first floor.
As you land in the Kamiri shop, you’ll instantly see a long table full of various group gifts. Notice the bottom photo in the collage above. The Fabulously Free in SL group exclusive gift is there as well. You’ll see it sitting next to the Fab Free sign on the table. Wear your Fab Free group tag and get this FREE gift if you haven’t already. For a preview, check out Katheryn’s post here. Just behind the gift table you’ll see a Midnight Madness board, from what I can tell there’s no target set, and everyone who clicks the board while wearing their Kamiri group tag gets the prize. The Kamiri group is FREE to join. Also downstairs, there is a promo offer of 75 lindens for a specific color version of one of Kamiri’s newest releases. Lastly, don’t forget to check out the most recent Kamiri group gifts. They are downstairs next to the circulation desk. As if that wasn’t enough there are more gifts upstairs!
Heading up the stairs, you’ll be greeted by 4 lucky letter boards with short wait time between letters! You’ll also notice several areas around the room that have discounted items. Then it’s hard to miss the cute little sitting area next to the stairs. You’ll want to bring a couple of friends, the sitting area is actually 3 camping chairs, each with a different prize. You’ll want to wear your Kamiri group tag for these, which is again FREE to join. Finally, you’ll see yet another long table packed with previous Kamiri group gifts. Gather your girlfriends and head over to Kamiri for lots of shopping and freebies, you won’t be disappointed!
Handel is know for being very generous with gifts of their incredible gowns to their fans . Just look at the choices below!
On the right we have one of the current lucky chair prizes. Don’t rush to the shop if you have a “D”.. this is an old picture. =P In the background are cheapies.. gowns at 20L$ or less. Then on the right, the Midnight Madness gift (short dress), and a mother’s day gift (long dress).
Go to Handel’s now, and hit the subscribo to join the group and get updates on new releases and gifts.
One of the things I love about the grid wide hunts we’ve had lately is that I discover new shops that I might otherwise never heard of. I appreciate the work that the organisers of these hunts have put into them, and even more — I appreciate the shop owners and designers who have put their hard work into the items they have donated to these hunts.
A new-to-me shop is Evil Neko. This shop has a few opportunities for freebie hunters to stock their inventory with low cost and free items.. and this is some really cute stuff! There is also a “Neko Starter Kit” available for 20L$.
These Lazy Sunday pajamas were a Lucky Chair prize. The Lucky Chair prize varies, and all of the prizes I saw while in the shop were just as sweet.
There is also a cute silk as a New Year gift — pick it up fast if you want it, because it might disappear soon! My photo of the gift silks came out with weird lines across the center of the picture, so I’ll post one a bit later.
Don’t forget to click on the Midnight Madness board near the front of the shop for additional goodies.
