The Pick 'n' Axe
Signs of better times can be seen under the more recent state of disrepair.
Pots and pans adorn the dusty shelves and racks of mended farmtools hang on
rusty nails all along the walls. A small, well-tended forge glows silently

by the towering shelves behind.
A large sign is nailed to the front of the counter.
