Before you buy Second Life items in the Marketplace check out the items that are being given away free. Just because they’re free doesn’t mean they’re not quality items. Many of the content creators are selfless and simply love creating things so they have no interest in making money from their work.
In the Marketplace you can get free Second Life scripts, artwork for you home, accessories and jewelry for you avatar and even vehicles.
The downside to this that Second Life started charging content providers to list their free items which seems unfair since they’re only trying to help out the community.
There are places other than the Marketplace where skilled SL workers can share their work at no charge. One such place is a Second Life forum. Members can not only share items there that they have created but also other content such as guides, secrets and tips that they’ve learned throughout the years.
