Nothing in this file is really worth using for assets, as everything in this mod is vanilla... If you must use this for something, please just credit me and link it back to my stuff. Special thank you to my friend Kriemen who talks me through my mod ideas and encourages me, tests my mods, and even helps me come up with names for things. He named the shop since I couldn't think of one. Thank you to all the other mod authors that have helped me online in forums and through sharing their knowledge via YouTube videos. If it weren't for all of you, I would have given up long ago.

I was for some reason quite distressed at the fact that there was no instrument shop in Solitude, even though there was a college with lots of bards! I know some mods have covered this by turning Viarmo into a vendor, and created crafting recipes for the instruments, but to be completely honest with you, I think it's just a little more realistic that there is someone dedicated specifically just to creating instruments. So I made this little mod.

The shop is located at the end of the alley between the Bard's College basement door and Thane Bryling's house.  It is called "A Bard's Cadenza". They are open from 10AM to 6PM. It is navmeshed so your followers can go inside. I added some idles around the store so if they can "relax" they should be able to use those idles to shop while you're shopping. There is a safe, and some display cases that are locked with leveled ability for the theify players to have fun stealing should they choose. These are supposed to be set to respawn. Let me know if they aren't!

The couple that runs it are Ballad and Melody, two altmer who have a love for music. Ballad creates the instruments, while Melody sells and tests the instruments during open hours. They should eat dinner after they close the shop in their kitchen on weekdays, but on weekends they should eat at the Skeever. They sleep from midnight until 8AM and eat breakfast from 8AM til they open at 10AM.

I did not add packages to any Solitude NPCs to go shopping there, as I don't want this to potentially interfere with anything else, other than possibly Solitude overhauls that edit the same area. Though, if anybody wants to add that, please feel free.
