Thrifty Finds

Snapshot_007Hi there Fabulouses! Guess who just released a new wearable demo in their marketplace store??!  Yep – Orange*Pekoe!  This sweet peach coloured Valentine Cardigan is available for just 2L as a wearable demo in unisex/adult/teen sizes, as well as a with or without the shirt option.  I am wearing it with a pair of my favourite new jeans (Addam’s Real Worn Out Jeans @ this round of Uber) and the Spencer Flats that I picked up at Reign this past weekend for The Saturday Sale price of 75L.  These cute tied flats are still available at the sale price as of tonight in case you missed them on the weekend.

I also wanted to mention the Aphorism Thrift Shop Décor items I have used in the set for my photo today.  These items are 50L per play at this round of The Gacha Garden.  If you play 20 times, you will be gifted with the Seeds of Inspiration prize which is the Reclaimed Wood Clock.  This clock actually tells time, and allows you to set your own timezone (or your partner’s if you need a cheat sheet!).

Looming Moon

Snapshot_004Hi there Fabulous readers!  I have put together another super affordable and mostly free outfit today that I hope you like…  At least like enough to go and pick up some of the pieces that suit your personal style.  I’m going to start with news about the hair, because free hair always seems to be a big hit here at FabFree lol.

You can find the Keene hairstyle that I am wearing today as a free midnight mania board prize at Moon.  This style comes in their essentials pack so it includes a ton of shades from different colour packs, making it a good find no matter what your box number is.  This is the non-group board, so you don’t even need to be in the group to participate – just show up early enough in the day to get in on it before it locks down!

The Jana Skinny Jeans are a new free gift at LOOM that you can pick up after you activate your free inworld group tag.  Maitreya, Belleza, Slink, Fitmesh, and standard mesh sizing are included.

My Ginny Sweater (3L) and Salome Flats (1L) are available as wearable dollarbie demos in the Orange*Pekoe marketplace store.  There is no mention of demo on these items, they are just in the orange*pekoe colours as shown :).

ps. TIP:  I wore the Maitreya version of the Jana Skinny Jeans with the standard mesh size Ginny Sweater, but unfortunately the jeans went through the sweater in a bad way.  I solved this problem by adjusting my shape butt size and saddle bag sliders down until the jeans no longer poked through the sweater.  Make sure you save as…  (something else), not just save or you will have altered your orginal shape.  I use this trick a lot, and I thought someone else might appreciate the idea!

What Were You Doing in 2002?

Snapshot_007I’m back with another dollarbie from the Orange*Pekoe marketplace store!  This time I am wearing the Brighton Bay 2002 Set that includes the mesh shorts, waist sweater and the layered top that can be worn with or without sleeves.  This set is available as a wearable demo (it doesn’t say demo anywhere!), priced at just 3L for the whole  thing.  Be sure to check out the rest of the offerings – there are tons of steals!

ps.  What were you doing in the summer of 2002?  I am pretty sure the highlight of that summer for me was a trip to the beach.

Where To?

Snapshot_005
Good morning Fabulouses!  Would you believe I put this outfit together for just 5 little lindens?

I was inspired to put together my travel outfit when I first noticed the Nerdy Duffle with Jumper (available here) in the Orange*Pekoe Marketplace store for just 3L.  This jacket also includes the shirt and sweater with the jacket for a complete look.  I then added the matching House Slippers and Uniform Skirt that I also found in the Orange*Pekoe Marketplace store, priced at 1L each!  Voila – 5L 🙂

Now.. where I am going to go in  my travel outfit – who knows?  I can’t follow a map to save my life.

Hi everyone! FabFree’s Tuesday Feature Blog is taking some time to smell the roses…a quiet moment in the garden before heading out to see what adventures SL has in store today.

L&B Buddha Tee and OrangePekoeBlog

I was inspired by the FREE group gift from Lapointe & BastChild Design. Their “Classic Womens Tank Top” comes with a texture-changing hud with 9 fun logos. There is also a cap-sleeve version and a great tee for guys too! The group is FREE to join and while you’re there, pick up the fabulous “Je Suis Charlie” FREE necklace just down the stairs. (Previously shown here).

Je Suis Charlie w Tee Blog

The soft “Orange Dot Bellbottom Jeans” are a demo from Orange*Pekoe and can be found with other similar items on their marketplace. The demos are a bit special: they are totally wearable and in a shade of orange. They are priced as cheapies (from 1L$ to 10L$).

See you again next Tuesday, till then have a great week!

Time For Tea

Snapshot_003Hello Fabulouses 🙂  I was asked yesterday…. “Love Trill, how do you find these freebies?”, and after blogging free gifts in Second Life for three years, it has just sort of become a routine for me to check for freebies in my usual spots and I don’t really think about “how to” anymore – it’s just natural.  I sat down and thought about it and the truth is, I find them in a wide variety of places such as reader tips, designer contact, inworld store groups, The FabFree inworld group and subscribomatics.  There are far too many freebie finding places to list them all, but one of my favourite places to scour for new gifts and deals is the FabFree Flickr Pool.

*************************************************

Any residents of Second Life with a flickr account can add items to the photo pool whether they are a blogger, or an avid shopper.  We even allow designers to drop photos in. Basically as long as there is an under 75L item credited to the photo and it’s family friendly it is fair game for the pool, but please check the information for a complete set of rules for posting.

How To Use Our FabFree Flickr Pool:

Readers:  View approx. 80 thousand+ photos submitted by Second Life residents  to find free and inexpensive items in SL.

Bloggers & Flickr Bloggers:  Submit your photos to the pool – it’s a great way to share news of freebies and even get some fresh eyes on your blog or flickr feed

Designers:  Submit your photos to the pool for a free advertising opportunity – even vendor ads are ok – just remember the items  need to be family friendly and under 75L.

*************************************************

Speaking of the FabFree Flickr Pool… As I was snooping through the photos, I found news of a complete 3L outfit that I wanted to share with you!  The Geo Knit Dress and Short Boots (also includes the leggings) are  both available in the Orange*Pekoe Marketplace store for 1L and 2L each.  These are in their wearable demo orange colour, but I think it is more of a cupcakey peach and is completely adorable inworld.  You can wear these boots with or without the socks, but I am not sure why you would take these cuties off lol.

ENJOY!

Holy Crow

Snapshot_005

Good evening everyone 😉 Tonight I came across a really cool Wizarding Robe in the Orange*Pekoe Marketplace Store that I wanted to share news about.  I know a lot of SL residents are into roleplay, and I can see this 3L dollarbie being a lot of fun to dress up in.  This item is called a wearable demo, however it is not marked with “demo”, it’s just in the colour of orange  😉

My “Holy Crow” and “The Cage” can be found at the May’s Soul gacha machine display at The Secret Affair, priced at 60L per play.  There are all kinds of crow themed prizes to collect, which is perfect for the upcoming Halloween season!

Hawaiian Orange Pekoe

untitled
Hey Fabulouses! Check out what I found on marketplace in the Orange*Pekoe store!

As I have previously mentioned on FabFree, Orange*Pekoe has a ton of dollarbie wearable demos on marketplace in the shade of orange. If orange is your thing- you should check them out! Today I picked up the  demo of the Hawaiian Set for 7L that includes the mesh floral skirt, purple bikini (includes the bottoms too if you don’t want to wear the skirt), book bag, hooked sunglasses, shoes & hair flower.  The shoes are for system feet, not the slinks just so you know 😉

My Popsicles

Snapshot_003“Eeeps!  Those monsters are after my popsicles!”

I am giggling as I write this up.  A blogger has got to have fun, right?  This brightly coloured Epicure Summer Bucket of Popsicles is made by [CIRCA] Living and can be found at The Wash Cart Sale for 10L.  It is meant to be a decorative item, and actually gives out randomly coloured animated wearable popsicles when you click on it!  I think I will put a couple out at FabFree Headquarters.

There are seven summer themed furniture and accessory items on the [CIRCA] cart at The Wash Cart Sale all priced at 10L each.  I will include cart shots at the bottom of this post…  but first  I want to tell you about my outfit before I forget!

In the Orange*Pekoe Marketplace Store, you can find a ton of dollarbie wearble demos, including the mesh Mariposa Blouse I have on today.  I picked this beautifully textured blouse up for just 1L and I love it!  My Logo (Slink Flat Feet Add-on) Sandals are the latest free group gift at Pure Poison, which was just released today in the free to join inworld group.

Ok.. now onto the [CIRCA] Living Cart at The Wash Cart Sale!

A day in the life with FFHQ

The gifts at Fab Free Headquarters are the best they’ve ever been right now, and they have been slowly changing so these won’t be available forever!
