[The Future is Now, 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 a cat flap next to the entrance and the exit to the corridor.
Obvious exits: none.

[The Future is Now, Workshop]
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 and the egress.
Obvious exits: none.

A thick treatise reads:
Brass resonates with similar frequencies to many strands of Fate, which constructively interferences with the potency of divination.

Steel is a particularly durable material in mundane construction, and the alloy can likewise be used to augment divination.

Prophecy is a mathematical procedure.  Proper adherence to formula will result in accurate interpretations.

Foremost amongst the reasons to value gold is the stabilizing influence it offers on the polarity of prediction.

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.

The Future is Meow (flap)

[The Future is Meow, Cat Room]
Sounds of a bubbling fountain and pastel pink painted walls enclose this small room anchored by an enormous cat tree. A profusion of cat beds and other surfaces--including a toy box, display, and stand--clutter the already claustrophobic feeling of the room. Dozens of portraits of cats in fancy dress hanging upon the walls, drawing attention away from a pile of fur next to an overstuffed armchair.
You also see a flap leading out. Obvious exits: none.
