Findar's Bag O' Nails
Findar's is a pleasant, crowded place dominated by trestle tables, shavings, halffinished items, and the smell of fresh-cut cedar. Run by a man who seems eager to help, Findar's is a fast-growing business: The wing that houses a selection of readymade chairs and travel chests seems as new as the wares it contains. This woodworker and carpenter also deals in nails of all sizes, hooks, and locks. Findar tries to have at least one sample of each regular (not custom-made or specially ordered) item he makes on display, which makes this shop very useful to the traveler in a hurry. Findar is a young, slim man with a pointed black beard and an air of nervous energy. He is no fine craftsman, but his work is solid and dependable and boasts reinforced corners and stress points. A dozen local youths are learning the trade as apprentices alongside him and with ever-growing orders for packing crates and strongchests from Hillsfar and Sembia, their hands are needed.
