There are two CCTV cameras in opposite corners of the room, providing what looks like full coverage.

All around the room there are various 'easter eggs' that one would expect to find in a shop where people pawn away their treasures. At one corner there's a standing cutout of Han Solo with his blaster raised in the air, while on another there's a framed movie poster from the original 'Night of the Living Dead'. Generally, there's all manner of colorful additions to give a subtle touch to the establishment, amongst the rows of more expected items.

These plants have bright green leaves with faint veins of darker emerald. They flower purple buds that are vaguely shaped a spiked bell. Dotting the plant here and there are black, shiny berries. There are three of them positioned at verying locations across the counter.

One is about the size of a large fist, carved out of a piece of fragrant-smelling hardwood: it is still fresh, imbued with the smell of sap. It is in the shape of a turtle resting on a branch. It is in repose despite the diagonal angle it sits in, and looks content: its head poked out at a comfortable distance from its shell, its limbs are all touching a surface. What's more, the work put into it is really good, looking right at home in an antique shop somewhere.
The second piece is made from the same material, except this time its a muskrat nibbling on dandelions. There's plenty of detail in its fur and the creature's body looks spot-on, save for Weston's unique artistic touches that make the animal look more at home in a Celtic bas-relief than in modern sculpture. Still, it's plenty recognizable, and quite good.
