Hidden away in Barrow's End is a run-down shop with stainy windows and a broken sign with a pestle on it. Inside, cracked pots of plants fight for the occasional ray of sunlight that enters the potions and ointments shoppe. Shelves lining the walls hold other oddities (some which the curiosity shop would very much like to possess).
The shop is ran by a mysterious dark-haired young woman. She is sometimes seen wandering about the city at night, hooded in a great cloak. Some say that she is a witch, and weaves hexes and curses to ensnare children, and that she prowls around at night to converse with the hangmen at the gallows.
The witch knows how to prepare some powerful mixtures, but most of these require a flower, something of an oddity in Mecca.
