Shop Name: Eximius (meaning superb in Latin)

Street Address: Eximius is located on High Street in Old Aberdeen, Scotland. Its street number is 7 1/2 because of the chronological order and it not being visible to Muggles.

Owner: Callum Reilly

Employees: Emily Fleming (open for played or non played characters as well)

Hours: Monday-Friday: 8am - 7pm
Saturday - Sunday: 10am - 5pm

Merchandise: Obviously, being a bookseller, the main quantity of the merchandise sold in Eximius are books. Bookmarks, quills, parchment, journals, planners, ink, and other related items are also sold.

Description: Eximius is a narrow hole in the wall, though it is roomier than it looks. It contains thousands of books, all stacked to the top of the walls, the top shelves almost reaching the ceiling. There are ladders on each wall to allow easy employee or customer access. Things are organized, but not necessarily in a systematic manner. Often, customers have to ask for help because the employees are more familiar with the mechanics and semi-haphazard organization of the shelves. Hanging from the ceiling are signs pointing to the various sections to guide customers to the general area they're looking to go to.

New arrivals are kept in a back room until shelved but can also be looked at with employee permission. In a few of the aisles, there are small sitting areas with a chair or two to allow a quiet place or just someplace to sit and evaluate the literature. At the front of the bookshop, it is more open with a table and a set of chairs, and towards the middle is where the "front" desk is located, with the door a little ways in front of it. It's a large desk with plenty of room for employee usage, with drawers and compartments necessary for appropriate storage.

There is a cozy ambiance in the store and it's quite old fashioned, partially due to the owner's age and partially because of its location in Old Aberdeen. It's open to the public wizarding community, but anyone that causes disruption will not be granted service.

orphan  in  the  storm,  that's  a  role  i've  played  before.  i've   learned  not  to  tremble  when  i  hear  the  thunder  roar

i  just  play  the  hand  i'm  dealt.  i  won't  say  i've  never  felt  the  pain,  but  i  am  not  a  stranger  to  the  rain

Spoiler: "Translation" • show
The Broom & Room

57 Maesmawr, Rhayader, Powys, LD6 5PL

Trahaern Conway (NPC), proprietor, desk clerk, maintenance
Enid Conway (NPC), housekeeper, laundress
Catrin Conway (NPC), cook
Brynn Conway (NPC), barkeep, maintenance

The Ysgubell is a wizarding pub and inn in Wales, located at one end of Maesmawr in the market town of Rhayader.  Muggles see it as an condemned dump site, and the property is thoroughly covered in both the standard Muggle-Repelling Charm and a pair of other preventative spells invented by Morgan Conwy in 1789 when he was the proprietor.  Witches, wizards, and magical creatures have been using it as a waystation and travel destination since the Conwys built it in the 14th century.  Most of the original architecture -- stone mid-walls, crossed beams, and copper inlay -- remains intact, reinforced by regular maintenance, upkeep, and charmwork. 

Check-In:  1 pm - 9 pm
Check-Out:  9 am - noon
Kitchen Hours:  5 am - 9 pm, Monday - Saturday, 11 am - 7 pm Sunday
Bar Hours:  11 am - 11 pm, Monday - Saturday; 11 am - 10 pm Sunday

Ground Floor

Coming in through the front door on the east side of the inn, you will see the front desk straight ahead of you.  To the immediate left, in the southeast corner, is a spiral staircase leading to the upper floor.  Further west on the south wall is a hallway with doors leading to the small parlor rooms on either side (east and west).  Next to the front desk is a west-facing door that leads into the grand parlor.  Heading north from the desk, the lobby opens directly into the dining room, where fourteen round tables of varying sizes are spaced around the room.  Across the dining room on the north wall is a swinging double-door leading to the kitchen.  On the west wall, there is a plain door leading to a public restroom, and just north of that is the ornate door leading to the proprietor's quarters.
Upper Floor

Coming up the staircase in the southeast, visitors will end up on a walkway extending around the lobby and protected from falling by a chest-high balustrade.  All of the rooms for rent are on this level, all furnished with a clothes bureau, mirror, sink, private toilet, full-size bed, two lamps, reading chair, sofa, coat-rack, and two sets of shelves.  The rooms are blocked in pairs, with hallways extending along each grid and a window at every dead-end.

? The kitchen opens in the morning for Brecwast Cymreig llawn - cockles and laverbread, Welsh bacon or smoked fish, mushrooms, eggs, with tea or coffee or milk.  Between ten and noon, only a daily snack type is available, such as vegetables and dip, or cheese and crackers.  However from noon to kitchen closing at nine, a variety of dinner specials are available.

? The bar, complying with both Muggle and wizarding laws, opens no earlier than 11 am, and serves Muggle and wizarding beverages alike - very carefully checking the I.D.s and ages of all people asking for something stronger.  For the less-legal beverage seekers, fruit juices and sparkling ciders are also served.
