The Stundars´ rye bread

During the Artisan’s days at Stundars, it is possible to bargain for some of the artisan’s produce. Someone admires the gleaming accessories from tanned fish skin, while two ladies argue whether some of the shoe soles made of reed would be something to give the geezers at home, while a third lady casts her eyes on a bird feeder made of willow. One man exits the tin-smithy with a shiny new bread mould, clearly planning to bake some rye bread!
