The Grand Marketplace

As a contrast to the fancier, and more regulated shopping district, Centuary also hosts a massive market each day along one of the mains streets of the city. It's a maze of crowded shops offering goods from all across the stars that spans nearly an entire square mile of the city.

If you have goods to sell this is the place to do it, and you'll likely make a much higher profit than trying to sell it back to one of the regular stores. Just be sure to keep an eye on your wallet, as they often go missing when one tries to squeeze through the tight crowds.


★ What is the marketplace?
Here you can post an advertisement with a Celestial Seas item or service you wish to sell, or an item you are seeking and other users may respond to your comment to barter with you. It's a free market for celestial seas users to have fun with! You choose the prices, you choose what to sell!

You can also post in-character as well.

★ What sort of items can be sold or traded for?
All items must only relate to the Celestial-Seas group. Nothing can be sold for USD or unrelated species/designs/art/items from other groups at this time. If you are trading a design or art for USD or other artwork, please submit a trade journal to the group instead!


★ Here is a list of what you can advertise here: 

Celestial Seas Companions --> See all types Here

On-use items --> See all types Here

Clothing items --> See all types Here

Unused Trait Potions and trait items --> See all types Here

MYO slots purchased through the shopping district
MYO slots earned via rare drop on an entry
Official Celestial Seas Species Designs (for group items or currency only)
✦ Celestial Seas related artwork, related design work, or related writing
✦ Anything purchased through the shopping district
Items won through raffles (this is for ITEMS only, not MYO slots)


★  What can't you sell here? ★ 

✦ Anything involving real life currency
✦ MYO slots that were obtained from gift, raffle, or giftboxes
✦ MYO slots purchased for USD or obtained through an official trade
✦ Artwork or design work not relating to Celestial Seas
✦ Items or services pertaining to other groups or websites
✦ Items or stargold for real life currency
✦ NSFW roleplay, writing, or artwork, all things being offered through the group should be PG-13
✦ Badges earned through the group
✦ Any items, designs, or companions labeled as "soulbound" or "cannot be exchanged"

★ How Does it work?
Simply follow the templates below and post a comment on this journal if you would like to sell or trade an item! You do not need to make an extra journal to sell items, it can all be done here! If someone is selling an item you want, or you want to offer your item to them just respond to their comment! You can use Ctrl+F to search for a specific item you want to see if anyone is offering it.

Feel free to discuss the trade here as well!

★ Is there scam protection?
The owners of companions and mounts are kept track of on the masterlist. Trackers should be linked at the time of transactions and have proof of all owned items. It is up to each user to check if the other has the item they are trading for, but a transaction cannot be completed without proof.

In the case of a scam, whether or not an item can be restored to you will depend on the situation and if there is proper proof provided. Please be cautious when buying and selling items or artwork with other users.

If you feel you have been scammed, please send a note to the group with proof so that it can be dealt with privately.

★ How do you complete a transaction?
Please go to the Item Exchange to get all transactions approved by a mod!
