Tom's shop is a shop run by Tom located in Opal territory. It offers a range of unusual items and a free gift for every customer.[1]

History Edit

When Tom came of age he set off from his family home to seek his fortune. He eventually set up a shop on the border of the Ruby territory sometime before the Shadow Lord's invasion of Deltora.

City of the Rats Edit

Lief, Jasmine and Barda saw a sign for Tom's shop on their way into Opal territory. They stumbled upon the shop shortly after escaping eleven of Thaegan's children and they bought some No Bakes, Pure and Clean, and Self-Coiling Rope.[1]

Return to Del Edit

On their way to Withick Mire, Nanion and Manus stopped at Tom's shop to pick up supplies and spread the word about the Belt of Deltora's restoration. Tom was also entertaining a pod of Grey Guards inside his shop at this time.[2]

Isle of the Dead Edit

Manus stopped at Tom's shop to pick up supplies for his journey to Tora. Tom also gave him a jar of fire beads, a bag of peppermint fancies, and a note for Lief, Barda, and Jasmine.[3]

Exterior Edit

Tom's shop is a small stone building with a peaked roof. Between the building and the road is a flat, cleared space large enough for several carts to stop. Scatted around the area are stone troughs filled with water for animals to drink. A jagged shape supporting metal letters spelling Tom's name extends from the top of the shop, near its chimney. On the side of a door, a large glass window with the letters 'TOM' is painted in bright red, arranged from top to bottom.[1]

Anime Edit

The shop is a one story building with a red roof. Next to the shop is a stable and carall large enough to hold four horses and three Muddlets comfortably. A metal pole extends from the top of the shop with Tom's name spelled out four times like the arrows on a compass. This way Tom's name can be read from north, east, west, or south, symbolising that he does not take sides.

Interior Edit

Shelves line the inside of the shop, rising from the floor to the low-ceiling. At the far end of the shop is a counter, with more shelves behind it. On the wall is a sign stating travellers to choose carefully.[1]
