Second Life Steals, Deals, and Freebies: Free Home Decor from Trompe L’Oeil

Have you joined the Steals, Deals & Freebies group yet? I will be posting EVEN MORE news and tips on finding fabulous freebies and bargains in Second Life than I post here on the blog! More information on this brand new SL group here.

I don’t usually write about Second Life home and garden decoration on this blog, but today I am making an exception for a treasure trove of free gifts available from a store called Trompe L’Oeil (pronounced trohmp luh-yuh, which is French for “optical illusion”, or literally “trick the eye”—a great name for a virtual furniture and home store!).

Trompe L’Oeil was one of those stores who were very generous during the Stay at Home Club, rotating their gifts of homes and chairs regularly, and continuing to give out gifts even after the Stay at Home Club ended! Today, I wanted to bring your attention to a selection of free gifts (no group is needed to pick these up). Right next to the main entrance to the store are three free gifts as shown below:

The gifts include a vintage end table in ten different colours, a dresser with a fun billiard-ball design (13 different versions), and what must be the biggest collection of free floor and table lamps anywhere on the grid—18 lamps in total!

Also, on the other side of the courtyard, with the Christmas decorations (look for a teepee made of blankets), Trompe L’Oeil is giving away two sets of Christmas decorations, which were Advent calendar gifts from 2012 and 2013 (you can purchase similar sets from more recent years on the large board to the right of this display, for L$750 each set).

Here’s a selection of the group gifts unpacked. There’s something for everyone!

Here’s your taxi to Trompe L’Oeil…happy freebie shopping!
