[Packrat's Paradise, Sales Floor]
Containers literally surround you in this tent, as used and battered ones have been sewn together to make a crude patched shelter in which to sell goods. Several lanterns of different makes hang on drawstrings from various bags on the ceiling. The warm light from the lanterns reveals shabby decor around the room, and mostly secondhand fixtures. The items for sale resting on the furniture, however, are far from second rate. You also see a tattered workscroll, a crooked alteration rule board, a tarnished brass-edged box with some stuff on it, a battered rack with some stuff on it, a rotting table with some stuff on it, a stout barrel, a torn canvas curtain, a crooked notice and a patched leather flap.
Obvious exits: none.

A crooked alteration rules board:
|                                                        |
| We here just got simple rules, but ya better obey 'em! |
|                (Or we'll throw ya out!)                |
|                                                        |
| 1) Have your design ready, if you don't, we'll throw   |
|    you out.                                            |
| 2) If you don't accept our changes when we say that's  |
|    all we can do, we'll throw you out.                 |
| 3) Our prices vary, but if you think we charge too     |
|    much, we'll throw you out.                          |
| 4) We got runners, but if you complain about their     |
|    speed, we'll throw you out.                         |
| 5) If you join a list a second time, we'll throw you   |
|    out.                                                |
| 6) We have the right at any time to throw you out for  |
|    any reason.                                         |
| 7) If you don't think we have the right to throw you   |
|    out, we'll throw you out anyway.                    |
|                                                        |
A crooked notice reads:
"If we feel like workin' on more stuff, we be coming out and working on people's stuff and stuff. 
There be lots of us, so we don't know who be comin' out when. 
Some of us will do different stuff than others, just ask what stuff we do. 
We all just work on containers though, and mostly just stuff from here, other stuff is bad. 
Pockets DO NOT count as containers, don't ask."
