During the "House of the Inventor" quest you are required to find a pipe valve for James, which can only be found in the odds and ends shop. Well in my playthrough I am unable to access the shop, it has some wooden gate infront of it. I've done several sidequests and nothing seems to open up the shop. I can see the merchant through the window but cannot enter the shop. I am able to enter the butchers shop no problem. Can someone please help me? I've had this problem for over a week. I don't know if this is a bug or not so i posted this in the general discussion form as well. P.S. I have tried several time frams to see if it wasa a time issue.
