THE STORE [08 Nov 2015|04:00pm]


FOR SALE [08 Nov 2015|04:11pm]
The Antique Store is stuffed with a variety of objects, but some are mysteriously unpriced. These unique items surface at unexpected times for particular people.

Each is neatly archived, usually with a standard burlap tag tied with firm cotton string. Manuscript scraps are tagged on the outside of their plastic envelopes, and books have the tags folded inside their covers.

The tag typically contains identifying information and attributions, including acquisition notes. There are two sets of handwriting: one older, printed in black ink and dark capitals, and one slightly newer, still faded, in blue ink and spidery cursive. It seems possible that the tags predate the shop itself.

These items are reluctant to be stolen, and extremely difficult to find if you're looking too hard for them.

[See bottom for OOC note.]

I'll break my staff, / Bury it certain fathoms in the earth, / And deeper than did ever plummet sound / I'll drown my book. )
