First opened in the year 463 AF on Delos by the merchant Merentesh, in preparation for the approaching Mayaween celebrations, the Festivities Annex has since become Sapience's foremost purveyor of all wares holiday-themed, from Logosmas decorations to Mayaween costumes. In 467 AF, the Festivities Annex was moved to New Thera, where it fell under the management of Merentesh's employee, Makesh, though Merentesh maintains ownership of the shop and responsibility for stocking it.

Logosmas Wares

Logosmas snowglobe - 500gp
A piece of solid red oak wood provides the base for this Logosmas snowglobe. Delicate hand-carvings depicting stockings, candy canes, and snowflakes decorate the foundation's border, while atop the base, a transparent sphere of crystal is secured. Enclosed within the water-filled sphere is a snow-covered landscape, with a trio of trees providing a festive backdrop. A round piece of mirror is set into the base, mimicking the appearance of a frozen pond. Tiny statuettes depict a pair of adventurers cloaked in velvet outerwear delicately trimmed in fur. Frozen in place, the happy couple smiles hand-in-hand where they stand atop the reflective surface of the ice.

piece. Pulling at these seams reveals quite a surprise: a piece of dark chocolate moulded to the precise shape and dimension of sparkling currency is hidden within! This morsel is the ultimate draydel gambling material: gold, or rather gelt, that is in fact sweet candy.

Letter decorated for Logosmas - 300gp
The outside of this letter is a simple white, but faint outlines of snowflakes can be perceived. Once opened, one sees that bright green holly leaves wreathe the outer edges of this letter, with foil-stamped red berries peeking through at random points. In soft pastels, the main part of the paper features a snow-covered vista. In its foreground is a Logosmas tree decked out with candles and treats. Beside it crouches a dryad, her upturned face illuminated by the candlelight as she reaches out tentatively towards a sweet hanging upon a low branch.
Jingling bells - 200gp
Strung together on a thin wire, these tiny silver bells can be worn in the hair, hung around the neck, or tied to a wrist or ankle. When shaken they make a merry jingle, spreading the joy of Logosmas to all who hear it.

Logosmas stocking - 200gp
This large, plush stocking is crafted from bright red, fuzzy material and bordered around the top by a furry band of pristine white.
