Welcome!

Hi there and welcome to Freebie Hunters! One of our favorite pastimes in Second Life is scouting the grid for fantastic hunts, sales, events and gifts from all the wonderful creators. We thought we'd share the wealth and showcase some of our finds in this blog, with an emphasis on the goodies available in the many SL hunts and events occurring every month. We do our best to show ALL items from a hunt/event and in the manner the creator intended, but this is not always possible.

An important reminder - All deals posted are subject to the whims of the item creators, and are often offered for a limited time (from hours to months). We do not guarantee the items are still available, and the creators are under no obligation to give anything.

Thank You to all of the creators!

Ironwood Hills Halloween Hunt

ironwood-hunt-poster

Hello all you lovely ghouls and ghoulettes! Its that time of year when SL finds itself taking on a darker, more macabre tone as the grid fills up with halloween events to spook, creep and generally give you a good scare. There are so many events crammed into a few weeks, in fact, it can be hard picking the must-do ones out of the bunch. Well, if you like a little mystery mixed in with your creep factor, you do not want to miss the Ironwood Hills Halloween Hunt going on now until November 5th.

When you arrive at the start of the hunt, you pick up a hud and a flashlight, strap them all on, take a deep breath, and catch an elevator TP to a delightfully spooked out deserted (more or less...) town. Once there, explore the town, find the clues and solve the mystery. Once you solve the mystery and reach the end of the adventure, you get a chance to visit the shopping area of the sim - 24 shops with some unique things for sale AND a congratulatory gift you can pick up for finishing the adventure. But you can't get there without working your way through the hunt mystery - and believe me, it's definitely worth it.

I've shown the prizes you can collect at the end, but gifts aside, the sim is amazing and the storyline as you work through the clues and explore the various shops, mansions and locations was a blast. I thoroughly enjoyed this one and was a little sorry to finish it up.

Event Information

Happy hunting!

The Cart Sale 10th Anniversary Round, p.7

10th Anniversary Cart Sale Oct 2017 Poster

Whew! This has been one of the biggest Cart Sale events to blog that I can remember - there is so much stuff to share this round. I have one more look at the lovely things you will find at The Wash as they celebrate the 10th anniversary of the Cart Sales.  I am at the end of my sack of blogger goodies and this will be my last post for this round of Cart Sale, but the event runs until November 1st, so there is plenty of shopping time left if you haven't made it there yet.

You know all about the party going on at the Cart Sale this time - the kiosks everywhere, the gifts, the gachas.  There are all kinds of sales and deals to be had, all of which add up to a great and inexpensive shopping experience for you guys.  I'd like to take a moment to say thank you to all the designers over the years who have put a lot of time, effort and hard work into making the event so wonderful.  Many of them create new, exclusive items for each round of the sale, stuff you can get at rock bottom prices before they go up in the stores at normal prices.  New people rotate in and out each round, but the core group who has been there round after round are amazing and deserve acknowledgement for their contributions to the event - without them, there would be no Cart Sale.

So thank you to the designers and thank you to Grace Selene for keeping us on track and moving forward - you guys are amazing and I am very fortunate to have the opportunity to keep working with you, not only on past rounds, but on rounds to come.  Also, thank you to the shoppers, my kindred spirits who cannot pass up a deal - I can't wait to see you all on the battlefield again, next round of Cart Sale!
