"SCRUBS!" A voice shouts from the back.
The covered stallion, Scrubs as you've just learned, jumps in place. "Ye-yes madam Luck?"

"Ah! An alchemist, haven't had one of those in the shop in a while." She looks to the adventurer. "Not many have use for such materials, darling, unless they're looking for bombs and mutagens." Powder looks back to her employee. "Thank you for minding the shop,dear, but I've finished my errands so you can get back to the back now. We have new gems that need processing."
