Box of Propellor Hats

One of the first free item stands, a box containing Red Propeller Caps at the April Fools' Party 2006

Free Item Stands were stands where you could get free items during most parties. Usually, they were placed in obvious or easily found locations. Most of the time, they are in Boxes. In recent years, they became available less often, as a result of many items being available from quests or tasks, or from an interface of some sort.
