[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 torn schedule, a crooked alteration rules board, a tarnished brass-edged box with some stuff on it, a rotting table with some stuff on it, a stout barrel, a torn canvas curtain, a crooked notice, a patched leather flap and a rickety rack with some stuff on it.
Obvious exits: none.

"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."
