The Texture Mania Hunt organised by Mandi Blanco might be interesting for you! If you are a creator, check this gridwide hunt, on till March 31. London and I went through the whole trail of participating stores and many of the best in this area take part.The prizes are ful lperm textures, sculpts, templates and tutorials to use in your own creations (not to be resold!). In the photo, you can see London and I at, [K.O.]'s. whose textures we simply loooove!
There is a total of 73 stores (that is when we ended the hunt; I am not sure if more will be added) and with the exception of one or two (not out yet or kind of difficult!) the hunt is totally doable, not difficult at all and very interesting. The group is called TextureMania 2 Hunters (to join click the hunt poster and the link that appears in local chat) and it is a friendly and helpful bunch. The hunt also has a blog here. We have a TON of boxes to open and loads of goodies to check! Happy Hunting! :)
