Fiera strode into the shop, just a little bit triumphant. That last purchase of mining equipment had done it- Fiera had been able to find a great deal of gems in her last mining venture. She had them in a little sack in her bag now, along with some other ones she managed to find by scrounging around her apartment. She had heard that they could be sold to The Underground for a pretty good chunk of change. Hopefully The Underground was just as willing to take the fruits of one's labor as much as they were willing to sell objects to contribute to it. Still, Fiera had heard of plenty of other people doing it, so it couldn't be too hard. She walked up to the front desk, little sack in hand. "Hello there!" She said, as cheerfully as possible. "I have some gems I'd like to sell- would you be interested?"
Kor waved as the customer came in, turning toward them and then nodding. "Sure, sounds good, let's see em." He said, holding out a hand and going into his pocket for his jeweler's loop to get a good look at them and idea of the size of them.

Fiera approached as she was invited, and carefully upended the sack full of gems into his hand. She wasn't necessarily nervous about the quality of them- after all, she had mined them herself, and she was thoroughly convinced of her OWN high quality. But this was her first time selling gem stones. For all she knew there was some etiquette she was missing, something she should have done to the gems before handing them over, some secret code she should have said or secret handshake she should have offered. But instead she was stuck just standing there with Kor having a literal handful of the fruits of her labor. "So," she started up, breaking the silence. "I've seen you around a couple times now, but I don't think I ever caught your name? I'm Fiera." Hopefully that would give them both SOMETHING to chew on while he analyzed the gems.
Kor takes the gem satchel and then gently puts the gems on the counter to check them. "I'm Kor, nice to meet you Fiera." He said, perfectly friendly, and then he quickly began checking them over for flaws and such. He was quite good out at, after all of these years he probably could have done it without the loop at this point, but he used it just in case.
"I can give you 219 credits for all of these." He said, after thoroughly but expertly checking them all over. "Is that amenable?" They were of quite good quality, each one, not bad at all.

She watched him fiddle with the jeweler's loop, marvelling at the deft movements of the tool and fingers. Clearly, this was a man who had been doing this for many a year- there'd be no pulling the wool over his eyes. Fiera doubted that she'd be able to haggle for the value of her wares. But then, he opened his mouth and gave the final price. 219 credits? She had been expecting far less- she supposed the quality was better than she thought! Er, that is, she always knew exactly how valuable her wares were and never had any doubts. Yes. She tried not to look TOO overeager as he gave his terms, but she was happy to hear a number so far over her initial estimates. Time to seal the deal now, she supposed! "Yes, that sounds perfect." She said with a smile. "It is a pleasure doing business with you, Kor!"
Kor watched the customer's face for just a moment since he figured that they would consider. Ah; they apparently hadn't thought that these gems were worth that much. He wasn't in the business of short-crediting people, so he pulls the credits out and counts them before handing them over. "Here you are, no problem." He said, and now that the credits were shifted to the customer, Kor took the gems himself, handing the customer back the sack. "Pleasure doing business with you as well; anything else I can do for you today?" He cracks a smile.

Fiera could have sighed with relief when the credits were passed over. Looks like everything turned out better than she thought! What a windfall, there was so much she had on her list that needed buying, and this was her ticket to them! Her left over mining equipment (she'd buy that some other time, she didn't want to sell some stuff and then turn around any buy things all in the same day), training equipment for her pets, a female pachee, there was so much she was saving up for, and this made everything ten times easier. Mining had turned out to be just as lucrative as she was told! She gave Kor a genuine smile. "Thank you so much. I think this is it for today though. I hope your day goes well!" She said, before collecting her receipt, waving goodbye, and sashaying out the door, tail flowing behind her with some new pep in her step.

Ashe: When the credits have been handed over IC, and the transfer is posted. Threads are often left open a little longer, in case the customer wishes to RP their exit or anything else.

Renathan: I've been meaning to ask- is a person considered out of the shop when the shop transfer is posted/items are given, or when the shop thread is locked?

Flare: It was hinted in the discord, so nothing officially announced.
