After 11 years the well known YadNi s Junkyard in Second Life has closed down which is a massive loss and very sad to see this landmark disappear. YadNi s Junkyard started back on 6th April 2004 and it was the first freebies store in Second Life history to launch. YadNi s Junkyard was one of the top favourite places for new residents to get freebies, getting started in Second Life and it was a good places to make new friends.

YadNi s Junkyard has closed today.
After 11 years of helping Thousands new residents with REAL freebies, full perms, for free, and one of the most long lasting money trees, I had to close the place today.
I hope you have good souvenirs of that place.

It’s going to be hard to imagine what the grid will be like now without YadNi s Junkyard but the memories will stay with us for sure. This is the end of an era and YadNi s Junkyard will be deeply missed by everyone.

    RIght up until the end I valued Yadni’s not for the stuff itself, but as a part of SL’s history (and -with the maps- a documenter of that history). He had a unique voice he expressed through his “junk” and it’s sad that his voice has gone silent and that perspective will go untold now.

    It’s sad to hear this, but nothing lasts forever. Still, I do recall working my way through the Junkyard several times in my early years, until I got my virtual legs under me; freebie stores like YadNi’s are fantastic places for newbies to get themselves established. And and 11-year run is mind-boggling in Second Life.

    Sad times, I met the big blue man when I was a newbie, and he was very uncomplicated and humble buider, with a incredible sense for building and 3D.
