Here are a couple of links I frequent for up to date sales, events, hunts, and general fashion/home: (Non Feed Sites)
SeraphimSL- This is probably the most visited site for shoppers who want to browse before logging in world. Also a great resource for advertising, prices are decent and utilization of adspace is pretty fair. Not overly cluttered with flash ads and easy to navigate. I would like to see a decent mobile page set up sort of thing (maybe an app?)
EloquenceSL- Brand new Events Blog spearheaded by former owners of Seraphim… Equally great coverage and layout is banner based, easy to navigate.
Elysium Hynes’ Pinterest Boards- The nice thing about Pinterest is that it is also a download-able app for any of your mobile devices.
Second Life Inventory via Facebook- Must have Facebook account obviously lol. But great resource here as well.
Second Life Sales Events via Facebook- Designers and event organizers utilize Facebook to its finest… always up to date
