[Armillary Sphere]
Contained within the gargantuan iron sphere that forms this chamber are dozens of massive brass rings connected to a globe via a thick central axis. Ceaselessly, the rings twirl and spin about in silent harmony, no two plotting the same course. Prominently featured upon each is a limelight which collectively casts a multihued kaleidoscope of illumination about the room. A particularly wide ring slowly plots a course that offers customers a relatively safe path between the entrance and exit of the shop proper. You also see the exit to the corridor.

The once spacious workshop is cramped by mechanical flights of fantasy. Many are little more than carefully annotated blueprints, scattered springs and stray gears, while others proudly proclaim their completion with scribbled price tags. Some merchandise lies in tangles and piles of clutter, while others sprawl across the workbench, a side table, the assorted shelving and even the walls. On the workbench is a prominent sign next to a thick treatise. You also see a polished brass stand with an ingenious clockwork telescope on it and the egress.

A prominent sign reads:

Modern invention and augmentation technology has yielded a number of improvements to the traditional
methodologies used in every day divination.  A proper treatment of the subject would require vastly
more space than is available, so please use this summary of my treatise to make informed purchases.
