Ah, can there be a restaurant? I don't know what type would fit in, but uh, Sienna would work at a high-end one, so is there a restaurant that would be high-end for those wealthy folk?


message 20: by Hayley (new)

Hayley | 185 comments Mod
Yeah sure, I just haven't got round to adding eateries yet, promise i'll have a couple up for tomorrow, just need to google and see which ones work best- I know way too many..

Kikki (kikki-not-kiki) | 104 comments The Whispering Trinkets store is a cute little shop, and not much has changed since it gained a new owner. The previous owner had the place modeled for a cute thrift shop full of random goodies, and when he got the store, he simply kept what was already at hand and has been using whatever he finds in the store (sometimes needing to go to another thrift or antique store, though his customers are known for trading old broken things like watches for cute little trinkets). The only real change is what gets sold, and the workshop he made out of the old back office for his tinkering. He's not had the shop for long, but it's already relatively successful, many people love the little creatures he makes from old broken things, and sometimes he gets special requests for birthday gifts and the like, usually people will supply the materials they want used when that happens. All the prices are rather modest, the most expensive thing in the store is under 15 pounds, mainly because he is after all, only giving new life to broken things so there's rarely any expenses that need to be factored in.
