At just under 10,000 in population, Karcau is as a Large Town which is Prosperous, Superstitious, and Cursed. That means any item with a 2,600gp base value has a 75% chance of being present in some merchant’s bazaar, you can find a buyer for items up to 12,000gp in base value, and you can find spellcasters able to provide level 3 spells (as an exception to the above rule, some scrolls of higher than lvl 3 aren’t common since there are few who can scribe them).

Note that sold to the open market, trade goods and art sells for 100% of base value, mundane equipment sells for 50% of base value, and exotic equipment (such as magical goods) sells for 25% of base value.

That said, there are specific curiosities of far greater value available for sale in Karcau:
