Oh yes! I simply must buy one of those beautiful walking canes, they're breath taking!   But it's so difficult to chose just one...
— Duck Enthusiast
  The duck canes are beautifully crafted walking canes adorned with duck heads as the handle.   They're made in a variety of materials, designs and colours. These canes are not cheap, since they're crafted with care, but even though they can be sold for quite a big sum, they sell out very fast.  

Secki ducks

The canes are meant to look like the Secki Ducks, which is the kind of duck the entire festival is about.   The duck sum upping started as a conservation effort, due to the duck population dwindling. The ducks are no longer endangered, but the countings are held as a way to ensure it stays that way.   The ducks have become very popular with the people of Ashilder especially, and so different merchandice with the secki ducks on sells very well during the Duck Sum Upping.   Many merchandise vendors donate parts of their earnings to the continued conservation efforts.

Author's Notes

I know the "sticky" prompt is probably meant to be more about... gooey stuff that sticks to other stuff....   But I immediately thought Stick-y, and so here's a walking stick!
