A short list of freebie places for newcomers in Second Life. We all start with nothing, we all want to look good, and we all want to explore what is possible. These freebie places are actually part of the learning experience. I went though this phase, and I’m willing to bet that most have as well. This listing is about as complete as a handful of sand next to a beach. Freebies are one of the nearly unlimted things in Second Life. You don’t *need* money in Second Life.
Some of these places are very well organized, tidy, categorized and clean. Others are a bordello of stuff randomly scattered in barely recognizable categories. There is SO MUCH of it, that just setting these things up is a massive task, so I can understand that a generous sim owner would have limited time. At the same time, these “messy” place are kind of fun, in a bazaar kind flavour. Dig, root and discover!
The first of course, if you are new is to visit New Citizens Inc. to find not only freebies, but great training to get your Second Life started in style. If you want to learn, find our main centers, if you are primarily interested in the freebies you can find the InfoNodes. Find a list of of NCI locations here.
A short list of Second Life Freebie places: More than you can handle. NOTE: stores often change places, just as websites often move pages around. If one of these links does not take you to where it says it should, please let me know so that I can update this page. Bonus points if you give the the new updated SLURL. Thanks!
MIA – West World Pixeldolls Tom Boy Pixie Dolls Unusual
Tonnes of freebies of all kinds. Clothes, shoes, boots, bikes, toys and even a hobo romani. Even has a couple free Sexy Walk replacers. Looks like a bunch of merchants and freebie givers have banded together. Fun place. Check it out.
Tooter Claxton Avatars and Vehicles main store
The store with vehicles and avatars is in the stand outside, inside the salon, next to the stage are the freebies. Visit http://tooterclaxton.blogspot.com for news and info. It’s not that tooter has a greater quantity of freebies, but rather that he creates an “interesting” ambiance. I like the place and his style.
The Free Dove
This place is one of the older and better known freebie store. Lots to offer, skin, jewelry, clothes, hair and AO’s.
The GNUbie store
I remember this place fondly as I started my career as an obsessive shopper in Second Life. Not only is the stuff super cheap (free and dollarbies), but it’s really good too! I have great affection for this place. Once located in Indigo, it’s not in Powder Mill. Where else can you buy an entire 799 prim prairies church for L$1? Also a great place for dozens of free furry avatars.
FIRST ORGANISED FREEBIE STORE IN SL -6500 Clothing Avatar Object Texture Anim Script Vehicle House Sculpt Money Tree LEARN AREA. I remember scooping up all the shiny pretty things even if I didn’t know what it was. I got my first wings here. *sniff*.
Sarah Nerd’s Freebie Paradise!
This place is old as dirt and gets bigger by the day. Another fond memory. This is a place where you can find pretty much any kind of thing that exists in SL. A must go-to.
Freebie Dungeon (In Deva Loka)
At the time, this was the orginal freebie bordello. I remember being totally blown away by the sheer quantity of stuff. And it was all in piles and heaps, wedding dresses next to pose balls, next to wierdo BDSM stuff next to scripts next to… I think you get the idea.
This place is large, well organized, and has stuff that I haven’t seen elsewhere. It’s a German sim with a really great feel to it. It’s obvious to me that the builders here are skilled and thoughtful people. Free cosutmes, free avatars, free eyes, free shoes, free clothes… you name it. As an aside, they have some really great walking animations!
And the ower of the above store (Ralfi Beaumont) sent me to this place.
