BELOVED MINE There are lavish new shackles that are comfy yet confining, pretty yet pragmatic, soft yet strong, and come in three variants lined with silk, velvet, or fur. They make the perfect symbolic, romantic, or just-for-fun gift! Buy all of them! In pairs, even! Look in First Comes Love at Caligos Isle. Lich Room 27497 What's your fav find at the fest? Share it: EGShop:First Comes Love 27497
DRAW IN STYLE The new Fancy Sheaths add a dash of flash, flair, and fun to your adventuring. Leafiara recommends them for "an awesome, low cost way to portray your character's nuances better than ever - even with something as simple as unsheathing your weapon!" Pick your favorite at Firio's Fancy Sheaths in Lich room 27490 EGShop:Firio's Fancy Sheaths 27490
SINGULAR SANDALS Attention, all cobblers: Lady Airisu has released a new hallmark punch! Sources say this might be the sandal-specific one she mentioned in the works six months ago. Buy one now at The Glass Slipper and be ready for merchant week! Lich Room 26510 EGShop:Glass Slipper 26510
DARK CHERRY This is one of many Cobbling dyes that are unique to Ebon Gate. These colors are not available at your local dyer's tent, and not guaranteed to be available at future festivals. Stock up now at The Glass Slipper with your favs or take it to the permifier and be set for life! Lich Room 26510 EGShop:Glass Slipper 26510
MUSIC IN THE AIR What's better than a musical instrument that creates magical floating notes that dance to your tune? They aren't just for bards - though having musical talent helps - and some merchants can even alter the magic notes. Leafiara liked the lyre at Noteworthiness in Lich room 27492, but there's many others! Share your favorite item finds from Ebon Gate: EGShop:Noteworthiness 27492
GNU 4 GNOMES Make sure to visit Imaera's Poem (Lich room 27518) on Caligos Island for every Forest Gnome's cultural needs! Jalodg says, "A forest gnome's prayers have been answered!" There are amazing cloaks and headbands in the shop. EGShop:Imaera's Poem 27518
UAC FTW Nymphadora is a new fan of Gizwizit the Great at the Fantabulous Shop (Lich room 26496): "It is hard to find nice UAC gear. These are scripted, 4x, and blessable with further tiers." Remember to attend any appearance by Gizwizit in time to watch him show off the gear. It's FANTABULOUS! EGShop:Fantabulous 26496
TAKE A STANCE Femereff adds a thumbs up to the dusky leather thigh-sheath at Firio's Fancy Sheaths, lauding the great ways to draw and sheath your weapons. You'll find the shop at Lich room 27490.

HANDY ILLUSION The icy blue illusion prop gloves at The Protected Coif (Lich room 26603) provide an effect that is unusual and allows you to choose a special customization beyond the usual mundane offerings for your character. Uzblex has just one complaint: it's not possible to have the effect customized. This is one of the few things for sale at Ebon Gate shops where you can buy it in Seashells, Bloodscrip, or in tickets. EGShop:Protected Coif 26604
GEMTACULAR All of the racial styles of head jewelry are for sale at An Evening Affair (lich room 27529) this shop have zesty wear and remove, and can hold a gem.

Match your jewelry to your outfit by simply changing gems. EGShop:An Evening Affair 27529
BE POETIC This year's perfumes at B. Witching (Lich room 26608) are so beautifully written that they should all just summarize as "You smell like poetry." via Avawren. Which item at Ebon Gate Shops do you like best? Share it with us at: EGShop:B. Witching 26608
PERMED Are you tired of your fav lip gloss running out? Do you really want that cool imbue box not to fade away? Find one of the Obelisks at Caligos and get your item permified so that it will never run out! You can make that perfume/cologne last forever, too! One takes seashells; one takes general tickets. Review what it can do and pricing at the wiki: Permifier (Seashells one) 26523

GET CONCHED Meureii recommends BUY BUY BUY for the signature souvenir, a small pitch black Caligos conch shell from Deluge Debris (Lich room 26433). Why? Because nostalgia. "I must have one because, in 10 years, I will find it in the bottom of my locker from EG 2018 and start puzzling over it once again! Buy it for the fun. Keep it for the memories." EGShop:Deluge Debris 26434
BEST CUTS *Buyer's Choice* Want to cut your gems, but don't like making them into silly shapes? Leafiara suggests, "Try the hickory box, rainbow glaes canister, silver chest, or bronze cylinder to make them pearlescent, iridescent, translucent, or glistening! This is the joy of lapidary boxes!" On sale for seashells at Carved in Stone (Lich room 26607). EGShop:Carved in Stone 26605
POOF! *Buyer's Choice* At Deluge Debris (Lich room 26434), take a second look at the small shadowy black velvet pouch.

SPARKLED TRESSES Rainedrop found some beautiful hair jewels at Wigged Out (Lich room 26418). Oval-cut glinting water sapphires especially caught the eye. She tells us, "They give that snazzy sparkle all ladies want!" EGShop:Wigged Out 26600
BLUE SUEDE SHOES Some of Misun's favs at Ebon Gate were the blue suede footwraps and a tight ball of colbalt blue rawhide at Fantabulous (lich room 26496).
