It was a frigid, blustery day when the depot appeared. I had been in a foul mood and was looking for a distraction. As I walked through an empty district, a swatch of bright colors caught my eye. It seemed so out of place among the gray, empty buildings. I approached the shop and noted the flashing 'open' sign above the door. The streets were empty and I was seemingly the only patron that day. Through the windows I could see a warm, inviting space full of trinkets and oddities. I didn't have much money at the time. The owner was friendly enough and let me wander the expansive displays to my heart's content. I eventually left with a small ornate music box. When I had more income, I returned a couple months later. The shop was gone.A curious shop ran by a curious man, the Trinket Depot appears in the most random of places. It never stays for long. As far as anyone is aware, there is only one shop. It comes and goes seamlessly through the use of various magics.
The depot appears in many different places. The main outside structure depends on what building is being occupied at that point in time. There is always a neon open / close sign above the entrance. A wooden plaque with the shop's name is hung by a metal wire. Locations used are always empty and / or abandoned.
I never disrupt or displace anyone with my shop. Each location has been out of use for a while. I find beauty in giving old things life again, even if for a brief amount of time.
Just like the outside, the building's interior is always different. The main foyer where the cash register is located stays stationary, however. Around the front desk are various small displays and bookshelves. Attached to each wall of the main room are oak doors with different patterns carved into the surface. They lead to an always changing series of halls and more doors with many rooms to explore. It is easy for patrons to get lost. Gizmo always assures them that they will find their way back to the entrance when their adventure is done. One must simply think of leaving or speak their intentions before opening the next door to be brought back.
