"When you're looking for something ask someone who knows." The Public Vendor is the single most person in town that knows whats coming in and whats shipping out. You want the latest gossip on where to buy that bauble you've been looking for? Just ask the Public Vendor! The Public Vendor would be changed to have a popup window similar to the Lot window on the Town Crier. The window would offer several options, such as Armor, Weapons, Decorations, Potions, Deeds, Misc. After selecting a category the vendor will search and list all the items being sold on other vendors in the zone and sort them by name/price. Alternatively, if you're after a specific item there would be a 'Search' option in the top to fill out. When you select an item you will get a waypoint option similar to the Lot waypoint on the Town Crier that will show you which Lot the vendor with the item you want is on. The category and search options, dividing up all the items listed in a zone before the search begins is intended to lessen the lag of a full item listing. The popup window, similar to the Town Crier, will not alter any of the current dialog options of the Public Vendor and they could still be used to sell items as they always have.
