Jack and Jill on the street shouldn't be your major concern, though you certainly CAN stock the cheaper items: Sigil is a freaking planar metropolis, the average Joe doesn't even get there before Plane Shift is available.

Don't forget porn. Something tells me Sigil doesn't have that active of a market in the area. With a few pre-programmed spells of the "X Image" line (all the way down to Silent Image, for those who are 'discreet' about it) you can set it up without even hiring/planar binding/summoning actresses/actors.
Gendou Ikari is basically Gregory House in Kaminashades. This is FACT.

That's certainly true of travelers--and you'll want to cater to them, since they'll have lots and lots of money--but for the benefit of the natives, stocking some cheap things (condoms in particular) would create a pretty decent stream of income.

Sufficiently complex programmed image = dating sim? :p Maybe combine it with an unseen servant.

The tier system in a nutshell:
[spoiler]Tier 6: A cartographer.
Tier 5: An expert cartographer or a decent marksman.
Tier 4: An expert marksman.
Tier 3: An expert marksman, cartographer and chef who can tie strong knots and is trained in hostage negotiation or a marksman so good he can shoot down every bullet fired by a minigun while armed with a rusted single-shot pistol that veers to the left.
Tier 2: Someone with teleportation, mind control, time manipulation, intangibility, the ability to turn into an exact duplicate of anything, or the ability to see into the future with perfect accuracy.

Actualy, Sigil is Plane-Shift proof and Gate-proof as far as the latest 3.5 description cares. The only way you can get in or out is trough portals, wich Sigil has countless off connected to all kind of places, many of wich can be found with simple Knowledge checks, so it's perfectly possible for the average Joe to go there if he does some research.

It is Plane Shift and Gate-proof as far as getting out of there; near as I know you can still Plane Shift or Gate into it.

From Planar Handbook, pg 142:

Furthermore, there’s no way around the portals, no special back door to get into or out of the Cage. You can’t call
or summon creatures into or out of Sigil (even with a gate spell), nor can you use plane shift to get in or out. You can’t
use astral projection, though, strangely enough, the various teleportation spells work just fi ne within Sigil itself. Since
the city resides on the Outer Planes, no connection to the Ethereal Plane exists. Even the deities themselves can’t (or
don’t want to) overcome these restrictions.


That also discards planar slaves, so illusions will probably be very popular entertainment in Sigil.

I think bears endurance potions may sell well as well.
Am I the only one who's mind was broken when they realized the implication of the existence of the aberration bloodline.

Dead characters are not a factor in this discussion. Only the living ones matter. And they can fly.

Crystal Mask of Silent Image obviously.

Planar servants are out, but y'know, Simulacrum.

Oh, also. Magic Traps of Remove Disease and Alter Self.
