A small parchment sign reads:
"While we mourn the need to wear such wares as these, we also do have a variety of blood knots available for sale. The bardic tradition honors that blood knots associated with red are crafted in remembrance of a mate, emerald for a parent, amethyst for a child, and blue for a guildmate. Please be certain to GET the item you wish and check with the clerk to make sure you have the one you truly wish to BUY. We will not refund any mistakes. ~D. Tibanov."
