Hail fellow merchants of Britannia.
The great Spring Bazaar of Skara Brae was going
on last eve. It was quite an event. There were many merchants serving
those of their interests. The city was in full bloom and just beautiful.
Quite an exciting day! Being an avid shopper myself I went around to the
merchants to see what I was able to find. In doing so, I found an area
for blacksmithing and weapon making.
Celtain Britain was the smith at the time I arrived.
Very polite lad indeed and his craftsmanship are wonderful! Also around
there was a carpenter, Ogie Treechomp, selling his well-crafted furniture.
An inscriber by the name of Sardel selling scrolls, which are much, needed
by those who practice magery and those of little magery. Dameon and Angela
had some wonderful uniques at their small area and Jasper Coins was the
local travel agent with runes for sale for every area you could consider.
Mu-lan was also there keeping our bellies full cooking different types
of food as well.
There were contests going on in the midst of
all this buying and selling also. The contests that I was able to hear
and know of were of fishing, pie making, archery at the Rangers
Hall, horse races, blacksmithing, and a sailing race! There was much excitement
indeed for Skara Brae this weekend. If you are interested in seeing wonderful
flowers and trees in bloom, Skara Brae is the place to visit for the time
being. In my roaming, I bumped into one of the people who helped coordinate
this. She was walking around making sure all areas were doing as well
as they could be. Hail Stella Maris for bringing the community together
in celebration of spring!
