Needful Things is the new shop in Castle Rock, run by Mr. Leland Gaunt.  There really is something for everyone.  For poor little bewildered Nettie Cobb, there’s a fabulous carnival glass lampshade. Norris Ridgewick gets a very special fishing rod at a real bargain price. And Myra Evans buys a picture of Elvis Presley that seems to have magical powers.  While the cash amounts are a bargain, the balance of payment is costly – and Leland Gaunt enjoys seeing how much people will pay for their secret desires.  A secret deal here; a bargain cash amount with a balance owing of a harmless little practical joke to be played on someone – all week, wires are crossed all over Castle Rock until the inevitable explosion occurs that literally sets the town ablaze.
