At the junction, you will find portals to all the related Fantasy Faire Sims. Some are for shopping, some are for other things, like performances. There is also Silent Auction Vendors up above the water, as the portals are sunken into the deep this year.
The portals are my one of my favorite things about the faire. It might seem odd, but each has to draw you in, with but a little representation of each sim. They are little pieces of art.
While you are there, be sure to pick up this year's LowLag avatars, to make the faire rendering easier for everyone.
There's still a few days left of the Wayward Hunt so if you haven't zipped around and picked up some great gifts, now is your chance to go.
A few things to keep in mind with the hunt and items - the skin from Clef de Peau, while it is a great skin and very nicely detailed, has no eyebrows. I didn't notice the small print on the advert at first that the eyebrows were to be purchased, and I was already at home dressing so I just used others I had in my inventory.
Also a couple of the stores are sneaky with their hunt items. I'm not sure if there was a limit as to how far from the landing point the boxes had to be hidden but one was at the back of the store OUTSIDE and almost underwater. Another wasn't in the store itself but outside on top of billboard type poster. So REALLY pay attention to the clues. It seems gone are the days of hunt items being hidden INSIDE the actual store involved.
