Fanfare

[Fanfare - 28035]
A hastily constructed open-air stall is draped with a sunbleached canvas awning, providing a small swath of protection from the elements. Along the front of the stall, open wooden crates are turned facing toward the road to give passersby a preview of the merchandise on offer. An old wine barrel sits at the end of a long counter along the back wall, upon which a fuzzy white kitten has taken up residence in a woven reed basket filled with scraps of cloth.

Fanfare, Behind the Counter

[Fanfare, Behind the Counter -]
Beneath the counter, wooden shelves are neatly arranged with various goods, some in labeled boxes bearing markings from far-off provinces. A green glass bottle lies empty on the temporary flooring, the rough aspen planks cobbled together to raise the shop wares a few inches off of the soft ground. A pair of muddy boots sits in a corner.

Analyze:
A talented merchant can alter the card, though only the Common language can be used for lettering.

A close look at this card makes it clear that it can be added to a book that holds and paints pictures of its own. If you put it in that kind of album, then when you remove it, the base of the card will show as "a painted card," though the actual paint and lettering will retain their original quality.
If you have any kind of "quill", you can use it with the card to WRITE. You can also try to CLEAN and TOUCH the card. If you want to completely destroy it, TEAR it up!
