The Secret Market

One night, you get hungry for some delicious fried shrimp, and open your dresser expecting to see some socks which you'll put on to go to the store. Interestingly enough, inside does not lie your colorful, cotton footwear, but instead a portal to a large market! Looking inside, you can see a huge floorplan, with products as far as you can crane your head to see. Curious, you climb in, hoping to figure out why this is here (and if they have any shrimp)...

Rules
0. This pretty much goes without saying, but follow the TBG guidelines.
1. Keep it consistent. If everyone in your area is in one aisle, you shouldn't suddenly jump to the other side of the store.
2. The store contains every product you can think of, and then some! Don't go crazy, as you're not gonna easily find a nuclear warhead, but definitely go look for some of those delicious candies you had one time while traveling in Europe and can't remember the name of.
3. A reset will never be needed. If the store is on fire, for example, all it takes is everyone ignoring it to put it out. (That or, I dunno, getting a fire extinguisher.) The store can heal itself, and it's so massive, you'll never need to worry about damage or running out of space!
4. Be reasonable. Seriously, you can't teleport, you can't shoot lasers, and I'm pretty sure you can't find things that let you do either.
5. Mary Sues and godmodding are banned. Not that you'd really be able to do them, anyways.
6. Keep it civil.

Re: The Secret Market

Tyler walks around a little. He sees a lot of outdoor gear. Quickly, he snags one of the small telescopes, and begins looking for a high place to go survey the rest of the store.

Re: The Secret Market

Pia lands in the store near Tyler. She sees Tyler holding a telescope.

"Hey Tyler, what's that for?"

She looks around to see where they are.
