Up for Grabs. Staple of grandmotherly old women in fiction (with doubtless a basis in real life).

They will have a stand, sometimes an entire Trophy Room dedicated to delicate little figurines. When someone wants to persuade her to do something, they just need to threaten the porcelain puppy. If they want to sweet talk her, they'll compliment the miniature moose. If children are about, many will be broken, and thing's will get much worse.

Some will keep them just for fun, but others will become obsessive collectors either due to emotional/mental instability (they make her happy since she's all alone). Expect their myriad glossy, dead eyes to peer into your soul and scare away most visitors.
