I DO Love Finding Random Hunt Gifts

Since Steam has been doing these hunt item introductions I thought I’d give it a go. Up late at night, after drinking A LOT of coffee and with nothing to do, I decided to go walking around a few of my very favourite Second Life Stores. Although I don’t have any Lindens to spend, ( I know right? Shocker!). I find it a little bit therapeutic to do some virtual window shopping. The idea of doing a hunt didn’t come to me until I spotted the …. sexist looking hunt gift ever.

Outfit items from America Bazaar #15Very Important Hunt

Nothing Slimy About S.L.U.G

The store S.L.U.G is set over two floors and has a nice range of clothes costing from L$19 up to L$400. The first floor has women’s clothing and full outfit’s, some even include shoes.

Upstairs has a great variety of clothes from men’s, ladies and more a more expensive range.  They sell everything from panties to that big night out gowns.

For the men, boxers to tux’s the store is simple but nice. However the pricing’s isn’t that clear until you hover over the image, but all in all a nice place as some of the price’s are really good  I would say this is a newcomer  friendly environment.

The music they play is called slow radio, not too bad but maybe not to everyone’s taste, all in all not the best looking store but worth a visit if you have a few Ls to spend.

Newbie-Friendly: 6 out of 10
Clothes rating: 7 out of 10
Overall Experience (including music): 7 out of 10

A Girl & Her Happy Hats

You’d heard of the Woman who Lived in a Shoe? Well this is the Woman who has a store in a Hat and what a store it is! I stumbled across

The Happy Hats

The Happy Hat while on the The I <3 the 80’s Hunt and found that this small store was actually amazing. With cheap and affordable accessories from shoes to …well hats.

This awesome store is brain child of Rah Rehula who has been a resident of SecondLife since 2007 and through her love of building

Rah Rehula owner of The Happy Hats

brought to life a very unique store. “ The Happy Hat started because I was showing a group of Higher Education Faculty about how a business class could be created in Second Life.” Explains Rah, “After it’s creation, I decided to just keep it going. I chose a hat as the building design because one of the first persons I met in SL (FOUR years ago) was wearing a hat. She stated it was something most people did not do in SL; so I set out to perfect the hat. I love to be creative; it reduces my stress. I also love to share my work with others. This is why the products are “affordable” as to Linden standard.”

And affordable they are, the Price Range for The Happy Hat is a cool 10L$ – 50L$ so definitely worth checking out if you are interested in hats, shoes and affordable prices. 

Fancy Fuschia L$10

Grey Daze L$10

Green Ghost L$ 20

Gold L$10

This store never has a dull moment, since it is always participating in up coming hunts and has displays that customers can interact with. “I get bored very easily so I change the store décor every month and bring what ever holiday into the mix.” Rah also shed some light on her inspiration for Happy Hats. “My inspiration, I would say, comes from the designers and builders of Second Life. There is always a visual explosion here in virtual environment. Many times, I find myself mesmerized by other’s work.”

The Happy Hats is beautiful store to look at and doesn’t break your virtual pockets, that is perfect for new residents.

Money grows on trees

Did you know money grows on trees in SL? Well, for newcomers under the age of 45 days anyway. Spread throughout the grid there are many money trees that gives you money. Some will give you a fixed amount once each day if clicked, others will be “loaded” with money and you have to find the lindens among the leaves on the tree.

The ones that gives you money usually gives you a smaller sum, and the ones where you have to find the money usually gives between 1 and 15L$ each time, but you can pick them several times per day. They have a limit of how much you can pick each day and a max you can pick totally, but if you know where all of them are, you might get enough for that dress you’ve been looking at on the marketplace or those pair of shoes you saw in that store you once visited.
