[Jakuv's All-Trades Outlet, Inlet]
Tent flaps thrown wide and top-vents opened to the sky, the interior of Jakuv's Outlet is bright and airy. Several clerks and stockboys can be seen in their hustle and bustle to the north. Some seem to be carrying extra stock to or from some remote locale in the compound, some carry pads of paper and quills and seem to be monitoring and tabulating sales, and others are stationed near various racks, crates, boxes, and tables to make sure that the customers' orders are immediately filled. You also see a rather large sign.
Obvious exits: north, out.
A rather large sign reads:
There are quite a number of items sold here, but only four rules.
1) Make sure you try to GET what you want before you BUY it!
2) APPRAISE the desired item to prevent disappointment. FAIR WARNING!.
3) GENERALLY SPEAKING, containers are in the center, clothing is to the west,
weapons and armor are to the north, and props and gadgets to the east.
Where something is sold is a good indication of its properties!
4) Absolutely no refunds!
[Jakuv's All-Trades Outlet, Junction]
Collections of cases, batches of backpacks, piles of pouches, and stacks of satchels are appealingly arranged around the area. Several studious stockboys stand silently smiling and survey the surroundings, scanning to see the shoppers' selections and skillfully stocking any shrinking stores with surplus supplies snatched from secreted spots before swiftly scurrying to their specified stations. You also see a buckler, a wobbly barstool with a crimson barmaid's tip pouch with a silver keg clasp on it, a battered wood worktable with some stuff on it, a dingy wicker basket, a rough-hewn pine counter with some stuff on it, a white wicker stool with some stuff on it, a white wicker couch with some stuff on it, a white wicker chair with some stuff on it, a dusty footlocker with some stuff on it, and a small bench with some stuff on it.

[Jakuv's All-Trades Outlet, East Wing Terminus]
In the easternmost parts of the fine Gnomish shop, arranged for fine browsing masses, is a wide-ranging jumble of gadgets and props (and even some handy eyeglasses). The clerks, you can see, are a serious crew, keeping up with supply and demand, but each one in passing smiles kindly at you without pausing from the task at hand. You also see a short marble column with a peach lace lady-in-waiting's fan on it, a chipped saucer with a delicate silk lady-in-waiting's handkerchief on it, a small silk cushion with a polished silver jeweler's loupe with a clear crystal lens on it, a crooked nail with a domestic servant's feather duster made from gidii feathers on it, a velvet-lined tray with some stuff on it, a battered red toolbox, a cast-iron lamppost with some stuff on it, some wood pegs with some stuff on it, a dusty wheelbarrow with some stuff on it, a polished bloodwood pedestal with some stuff on it, and a flameoak sideboard with some stuff on it.
Obvious exits: west.
[Jakuv's All-Trades Outlet, North Wing]
With years on the job and some plain common sense, it's abundantly clear that some tasks will require protection of various sorts, like gloves or even a mask. Of the broad ranging spectrum of items for sale, be they pieces of clothing or fluff, the articles fashioned from leather or mail are the best for preserving your duff. You also see a wrought iron armor stand with some stuff on it, a collection of hatstands with some stuff on it, and a shield rack with some stuff on it.
Obvious exits: north, south.
[Jakuv's All-Trades Outlet, North Wing Terminus]
The furthermost reaches of this massive black tent are reserved for the dangerous stuff. The clinking is loud with more coin being spent and the "clients" look slightly more rough. As if fully expecting that sort of folk here, all the workers have sharp, darting eyes, but the one thing that's clear is there's no hint of fear and they're ready for any surprise. You also see a wooden trough, a scrubbed butcher's block with some stuff on it, and a rosewood weapons display with some stuff on it.
Obvious exits: south.
[Jakuv's All-Trades Outlet, East Wing]
Various boxes, bookcases, and crates are filled with superior stock. Closer inspection, as one might expect, shows nothing that could be called schlock. Baubles and gizmos and geegaws galore! Trinkets and trifles abound! Plainly presented on shelves and on trays so that everything's easily found. You also see a simple brass hook with some pilgrim's prayer beads carved from sandalwood on it, a piece of driftwood with a cartographer's compass housed in a brass case sealed with a gold clasp on it, an ebony lectern with a professor's wooden teaching stick on it, a narrow pine shelf with a town crier's drum accented with white doeskin on it, a cracked hearth stone with a gardener's mini greenhouse with a cracked pane on it, a chipped crystal plinth with a set of multi-shaped chef's salt and pepper shakers on it, a polished maple bookcase with some stuff on it, a dented jewelry box, an upside-down splintering crate with some stuff on it, a round pewter tray with some stuff on it, a musty canvas cot with some stuff on it, and a teetering tripod with some stuff on it.
Obvious exits: east, west.
On the brass hook you see some pilgrim's prayer beads carved from sandalwood.
[Jakuv's All-Trades Outlet, West Wing]
Uniforms and livery, costumes and attire, ensembles and regalia that every job requires are here awaiting purchase, be it one item or more, sold by clerks with buttons marked "By Idon, what a store!" Everything a heart desires, anything your job requires, is sold here to the public. Cloaks and tunics! Belts and robes! They haven't missed a trick! Shoppers scurry to and fro and gawk at the selection, pointing out their favorite things with genuine affection. You also see a beveled mirror with a red gold belly dancer's hip-chain draped with midnight ruby studded medallions on it, a rickety pine valet with some stuff on it, a satinwood garter tree with some stuff on it, a maple wardrobe carved with shirts and vests, a closed laundry hamper with some stuff on it, and a white ash cabinet.
Obvious exits: east, west.

The western recesses hold cloaks, hats and dresses in various colors and sizes. The shop clerks and minions give helpful opinions on stuff it seems no one despises. Assortments, collections and wares for inspection are laid out in all of their glory, while women and men, their relations and kin, buy additions for their inventory. You also see an oak cloak rack with some stuff on it, some old fenceposts with some stuff on it, a painted poplar wardrobe, a rosewood shoe tree with some stuff on it, and a brightly painted glovebox with some stuff on it.
