"I just looked around, and I was there. I'm not sure how he does it." Tooken Buckleberry, about Shady Nikolai's Market.
The Alley-Shade Market is a special location belonging to Shady Nikolai, the mysterious salesman. It is found as Shady Nikolai will lead a person through winding alleyways that may or may not have existed before. The actual location of the Market is unknown. The Market itself is a large town of complicated streets and stalls, filled with illusionary people. Here, Nikolai's wares are on sale. It should be noted that it is impossible to steal from the Market, as anything taken from the Market without Shady Nikolai's permission will turn to sand.
