The Avalon store sells real-world products and is a separate entity from the "Old Curiosity Shops" found throughout the continent of Avalon.
The Avalon store should not be confused with the multitude of in-role shops including the "Old Curiosity Shops" scattered about the land. The latter sell in-game items/equipment (for Avalon gold or real-world currency in the case of the Old Curiosity Shops - detailed in HELP SHOPPING). The former deals solely in real-world products like hardcopy literature offered by Avalon to its players.
