Blood and Magic
Fabala’s Fabulous Curiosities
Fabala Marvelo bills her shop as a place to buy and sell strange trinkets and “oddities”, but in fact her shop is much more than that. It is, quite literally, the place for adventurers to sell what they recover on their adventures.
One might find powdered unicorn horn, dragon claw, and burnt out Ioun stones among brass candlesticks, antique spoons, and tarnished necklaces throughout the shop. The authenticity of many such products, however, is questionable.
It is well known, though, that Fabala also secretly buys and sells magic items of all kinds. These items she keeps out of site.
If someone asks Fabala to look for a specific item, she will. Should that item ever come in, she will hold it for a few days before putting it on sale to the general public, in case the asker comes back looking for it again. The half-elf will even send a message to potential customers if she knows how to get a hold of them.
The only things Fabala does not buy are weapons and armor. This is to keep the outward appearance of her store as a novelty shop and nothing more.
Fabala does not live in the shop. Instead, she keeps a very nice home in the Northgate district. Because of the slow but steady success of her business, she is a very wealthy woman and ready to retire soon to finally enjoy her fortune. She has operated the store for thirty years and has worked there seven days a week, from open until close, for the last eight years without a break.
