Eelskins (pair).... 5gp
Reekish (small jar).... 5sp
Bear Grease( 4 applications).... 1gp

(Prices listed are for 100cp=10sp=1gp standard adventurer inflated prices)

Descriptions:

Thevvish Weed: A incredibly useful weed that can be used as a spice, a tea, burnt as incense and even smoked. Dwarves don't much like the stuff but do recommend burning it to deter ear seekers.

Vinegar: surprisingly versatile liquid. It's a seasoning, a cleanser, a preservative and can remind one of much more expensive wine if used very carefully.

Sugared Vinegar: tastes much better then other vinegars and is considered a useful health aid to resist a sore throat and the common cold.

Spiced Vinegar: what is this vinegar fetish you ask? Well I doubt you would if you had seasoned vinegar to spice up your trail rations.

Twice Baked Bread: breadcrumbs remixed and cooked as some fresh form of bread. Rather hard but very durable.

Seasoned Bread Crumbs: Bread-crumbs mixed with seasonings and salt, a popular ratio to liven up other dishes or make up a batch of tastier then normal twice baked bread while on the trail.

Eelskins: thin rubbery tubes that shed water easily often worn as footwear and hose to protect other garments from getting soaked. they aren't long lasting after being used but are still serviceable for about a week after the oils that permeate them start to dry.

Reekish: a spread made from fish, garlic, a variety of strong onions and a bit of vinegar aged for a couple of weeks. Humans can tolerate the stuff but generally avoid it, gnomes love it, dwarves would eat it but don't go out of their way to do so and halflings and elves can't stand the stuff.

Bear grease: it can oil leathers, you could theoretically cook with it , it serves as an extra layer of insulation when liberally smeared on ones skin and works well at keeping the mosquitos away and keeps small flies from biting (but doesn't' do much to keep them away). It'll re-oil a set of eelskins and is worth the effort if they aren't worn-out.
