DesQuiet Concoctions
At the end of the lane, set a safe distance from BB's and the Town Hall is the unassuming storefront for DesQuiet Concoctions. Stones fit so perfectly together that not even an elven dagger could fit between them make up the extended foundation of this building. The small windows by your feet speak of the fact that this is one of the few buildings in town with a basement. From your knees up the building is made of a treated wood that looks normal at first glance, but is actually as hard as steel. Hanging from the second floor, the shop's sign is actually one long glass tube shaped into a cursive script and filled with a glowing, bubbling concoction that changes hues as you watch.

Chimes hung above the door announce your arrival to the inside of the shop, which is just as dark as you would expect an apothecary with shuttered windows to be, but actually smells surprisingly pleasant. Perfumes, oils and incenses are secreted all over the shop to counteract any overwhelming smells that may come from the laboratory and the front room's products all have a positively appetizing aroma. Fruits, sweets, spices, even the acrid smells are more citrus than caustic.

In fact, once your eyes adjust to the dim lighting, it appears to be more of a sweet shop than a poison purveyor. Bright colors, tending toward blues browns and pinks line the shelves with stripes and swirls dazzling the eye as the bouquets do the nose. Paper of various bright colors distinguish not only the flavors of each sweet, but it's beneficial or detrimental effects.

Securely fastened to the counter with alchemical glue is a large glass bottle that could probably hold over fifty gallons when full, but contains only some worn glass lab equipment and a small but vibrantly Green Dollop roughly the size of a coin. The tiny ooze will flow playfully around and through the curling glass tubes and according to the paper tag on the outside of the bottle is named Professor Boogersworth the ... Twenty-third?! A folded card next to the tank lists feeding times, the price for a Boogersworth of your very own (80 gold) and demonstration times for something called an 'Alkali Flask'.
