Icon Buffet is offering five sets of free icons – if you sign up for an Icon Buffet account [ which is free ], you get to have five sets of icons for free. The catch is that as soon as you sign up, you get to download only one set – the other four are shown as screenshots and you can get them from your friends – when they sign up for an Icon Buffet account, they will not necessarily get the same icon set to download as you did – so you can trade the icons!
The icon set that I downloaded soon after signing up is the Oslo Atmosphere [ set of 9 icons ]:
Great marketing strategy and a neat way to spread buzz!
I’ve now got Shanghai Tech and Oslo Finance. One thing I discovered [ that is not apparent from the Icon Buffet website and fine print ] is that you can send a delivery of a particular set of icons only five times. I’ve sent Oslo Atmosphere to three friends and now it reads “2 deliveries remaining”. Like this:
I also have three new additions [ the first two honestly look SAD but I want Manhattan Night Life! ]
I have all except Taipei Buddies 1 – and that I don’t really care about! Yay!
I’m out of Oslo Atmosphere deliveries, if you want any other, either use the contact form from the blog or leave a comment. I’d love to send you a delivery!
Update 03 January, 2006
Icon Buffet just released two more deliveries:
Update 27 January, 2006

Thanks to Joss, I now have TowerGrove too!

Hello again. Would it be possible to send me the Oslo atmoshere set via icon buffet delivery system please?
Just sent you Taipai Night Market 🙂
Kind of fun really this isn’t it?
Yeah Gregory! It’s kinda fun indeed! Although I’m thinking maybe I’m wasting too much time you know! Lets hope we get some good icons in the next lot – will be even more fun exchanging them!
I have Taipei Night Market…
would love to trade for Oslo Finance
I already have Oslo Finance, but am sending Taipei Night Market your way right now! Have fun!
I only have Shangai Tech left… If anyone wants to trade or just being generous…
Calitoe at gmail
I have Oslo Atmosphere however i’m looking for the others… If anybody needs Oslo Atmosphere or has some extra deliveries my email is [email protected]
I have Oslo Finance and that’s it – interested in sharing with me anyone? (sgtpritchard at gmail dot com).
Sarge, I just sent you some Icon Buffet free deliveries – Shanghai Tech, Shanghai Tech Vector, Manhattan Night Life, Taipei Night Market, Taipei Buddies 1 and Taipei Buddies 2. Since I have exhausted Oslo Atmosphere, I couldn’t send that – I also already have Oslo Finance so there’s no need to trade either!
In the next set of icons, if I need something, I’ll drop you an e-mail. Thanks for stopping by Sarge!
Does anyone have remaining deliveries of Oslo Finance? If so can I have it?
Shane, has someone already forwarded Oslo Finance to you? If not, I could send it to you. Happy holidays!
@Naina: Thanks, someone did send it to me! and yes, the icons do seem to have slowed down…maybe because of the holidays?
By the way, you have a great looking site!
I have Farewell Snow if anyone needs it. (I’d love a copy of Oslo Atmosphere/Finance if there are still deliveries out there.)
Just for information Naina. There is a new set of icons out today.
I would really appreciate it if I could get a coppy of the farewell snow icons if you could please.
Thanks for stopping by.
Just sent you the Farewell Snow Icons delivery via Icon Buffet! Enjoy!
I have Modena Simbolo and Oslo Finance. I would like one of the Shanghai Techs.frankie [at] grimboy [dot] co [dot] uk.
