Aemilie, the Eleusian weaver, is the most prominent of merchants in the forestal village of Eleusis. The flaxen-haired Siren can often be found within a hollow of a huge oak in the lower of her two small shops, Silver Threads. Items for sale include journals, archery supplies, and a number of containers. The entrance to her gallery, Art of the Wilds, is also located nearby, where visitors are able to purchase wooden decorations such as birdhouses and statuettes.

In the past, Aemilie has suffered and survived hostile takeovers of her shops by Felisse's thugs as well as the master merchant, Rurin.

Silver Threads

Map-embossed leather journal - 7500gp
A sheaf of fine parchment has been bound with an exquisite leather cover. Left a natural tan hue, the outside is rubbed with oils to preserve the quality of the leather and enhance the grain. A detailed map of the continent of Sapience sprawls across the front and back, embossed directly into the leather and highlighted with dark ochre dyes. The endpapers of this journal contain smaller maps of the outlying islands and northern villages, as well as the known extra-planar regions and a few notes on their exploration. Attached to the spine is a long leather strip which serves as a bookmark, embossed with the image of a water lily.

Woven basket - 100gp
Thin strips of young white oak are bent and woven around each other in a symmetrical pattern, forming a square basket. The bottom is reinforced with a thin, flat piece of oak and lined with a white linen cloth, perfect for holding anything from fresh blueberry pie to a bouquet of fresh flowers. A white satin ribbon with the words "Silver Threads of Eleusis" printed upon it is tied to the curved handle.
Shady green backpack - 250gp
A dark leaf pattern is stenciled over the deep green canvas of this durable pack. Crossing over the chest is a single strap, lightly padded for comfort, which allows the weight to spread evenly across the back. Sewn to the front of the pack are a series of small pockets, obscured from view by a large flap which folds down and is secured by simple wooden toggles. The result is a smooth, unobtrusive profile, the ideal match for a forestal ensemble.
Eleusian ivy scabbard - 750gp
This magnificent leather scabbard is crafted from fine boar's leather of a rich brown hue, conditioned to a slightly reflective sheen.

Worn over the back, several adjustable leather thongs are designed to wrap over the shoulders, under the arms, and across the chest, ensuring that the sheathe stays comfortably in place when a weapon is drawn.
Green-dyed leather quiver - 250gp
A sturdy piece of buckskin has been dyed a deep green hue and shaped into a quiver to be slung over the shoulder.

The long slender shaft of this arrow is the shade of dark green that best blends with the forests, making it nearly invisible in natural surroundings. The arrow head is chipped obsidian honed to a razor edge, and the fletching is well-balanced and bleached white, so that it easily takes dye.

Art of the Wilds

Mahogany squirrel statuette - 35000gp
Carved by hand from rich mahogany, this lifelike wooden squirrel could easily fool a hasty observer.

Ebony tengu statuette - 30000gp
Blackest ebony has been shaped by a masterful artisan into the form of a small kitten. A pair of sleek raven's wings are outstretched behind her, and her tiny paws seem to bat the air playfully.

Antique wooden toadstool - 25000gp
This oaken sculpture stands nearly two feet high, a giant replica of the tiny toadstools found throughout Sapience's forests.

Grizzly bear statuette of aged redwood - 20000gp
A large piece of redwood, aged to a dignified grey colour, has been handcrafted into the form of an adult grizzly bear.

His eyes gaze intently ahead of him as he stands proudly upon his back haunches in a deceptively relaxed stance.
Jambaali statue of light maple - 15000gp
The subtle tones of maple are a perfect accent for this exquisite carving of a duck-billed jambaali.

In his paws he holds a dried honeycomb, and an intelligent expression is carved into his gentle face. The wood has been conditioned with honeycomb wax to preserve it, emitting a delicate fragrance and giving a rich sheen to the piece.
Wooden birdhouse - 900gp
Painted white with a roof of cheerful green, this tiny replica of Eleusian architecture invites a variety of birds to nest within.
