About the hunts
6-20 February 2009 VAIN Inc KISSED Valentines Hunt (start the hunt here)
7-28 February 2009 Katlene Niven Agency brings to you the Greatest Love Gridwide Hunt (start the hunt here)
There are quite a few smaller hunts going on as well and you'll probably stumble upon them on your travels.
Prizes include: women's attire & accessories, men's attire & accessories, skins, hair, shapes, furniture (particularly stuff with cuddles and lovin' built in), candles and house decor, valentines decorations, some stuff for nekos and tinies, poses (single, couple and group), animations, gestures, shoulder pets, oddities, toys and more.
Hunts are a great way to discover new places and stores... the free products kindly offered as prizes by participating stores give you the opportunity to check out their products - if you like something, be sure to save the landmarks for those moments when you need some retail therapy. If you support the creators by buying other goods from those whose stuff you like, you help make it possible for creators to offer great freebies for hunts, charity/fundraising and at in-world expos in the future.
