Caramella's Candy Bags (descriptions)



  • While all of Caramella Bestefaren's goods share the same unique characteristics as her brand of arcana, namely 'sweet', she appears to be experimenting with different lines of products, each tailored to suit specific preconceived needs. The different bag styles are currently as follows:

    Swag Bag - these pirate inspired bags come in matted licorice black and a glossier custard yellow, with candy coins for buttons (the licorice ones with the traditional skull and bones imprinted on their surface, and the custard ones covered with faux gold foil). The gingerbread-styled label depicting the maker even has a wee eye-patch, how tough!

    Haul It - the robust 'Haul It' line has comfy, marshmallowy padding on the reinforced shoulderstraps by which to obey the label's upbeat instruction. It's a generously sized bag, usually available in bright strawberry red, with soft white marshmallow buttons.

    Drink It - this bag has many soft padded compartments within it, some big enough for whole bottles of liquid, and others more suited for vials and tinctures of various kinds. The inside of this bag is coated in some sort of rubbery, water-proof substance, which is green and smells faintly of sour apples. The outside is a striking teal, with little fizzy candy-pop bottles for buttons.

    Sell It - each 'Sell It' bag has a higgeldy-piggeldy pattern of different colours, shapes and sizes strewn across a tawny leather background. While highly abstract, one might imagine this oblong to be a shield, that coiling swirl a whip and the streak of white perhaps a blade. Or, much like Caramella's own cloak, the pattern is that of candies, spilled and scattered invitingly. Inside, it's simple but sturdy, fit for stuffing just about any sellable object into it.

    Cure It - this bag has a distinctly different look to the rest, shaped much like a doctor's bag with a flat, steady bottom. It's designed not to sling over one's shoulders but to be carried by hand, opening in the front to reveal surprisingly ample room for all one's bandages, balms, potions, lotions and perhaps the odd medicinal mushroom. The clasp itself is in fact shaped like two interlocking mushrooms in soft marshmallow pink, while the leather's hued a peppy apple green.

    Wear It - this fashionable pink shopping bag-styled item slings over one's shoulder by a long strap. It's lightweight and stretchy, yet durable enough to fit all manner of wearables, from soft gowns to a fullplate and helm. Little gummy bears in different outfits line the rim of the bag, which closes with a striking top-hat button in bright green, not unlike Caramella's own.

    Store It - this one looks more like a box than a bag, shaped like a cube clad in smooth brown leather. It does have straps attached, should one wish to carry it around, but seems designed mostly to fit neatly on a shelf. The container is adorned with sugarlike frosting, akin to a gingerbread house without the roof, and naturally the lid closes with bright gumdrop buttons.

    Ka-Boom! - this bag is bright yellow, the buttons shaped like candy-styled warning signs with fiery explosion icons on them. Inside, it's heavily lined with a black, licorice-like substance - supposedly explosion-proof! Just large enough to stuff a powder keg into, this is surely the bag of choice for the enterprising gnomish inventor!
