The Bazaar is a zone located off of the Nexus on Luclin. You need to have the Shadows of Luclin expansion installed and activated on your account to access it.
To use, when you zone in you get a message to use /bazaar to access the.. umm.. Bazaar. Typing /bazaar will bring up a screen where you can either type in the name of what you want directly or else use pull down menus to select your desired class, race, slot, etc. For instance, you could ask it to return all the available neck slot items for dark elf wizards that give +INT and cost up to 500pp. Once you find an item you like at the price you like, you hit the bank (there's two in the zone and weight doesn't limit movement there so you can buy those 150k items) and then use the "Find trader" option on the Bazaar window to draw a line from you to the trader. Once there, you just click on the trader like you would an NPC merchant and make your purchase.
Where do all these items come from? Other player characters like you. You can buy Trader Satchels in the Bazaar (about 1pp each if I recall) which are 10-slot giant capacity No Drop bags (which also weigh 20# each so they're not useful for adventuring... keep them in the bank). Put what you want to sell into the Satchels and go stand with the rest of the PC traders in the stalls (it's obvious once you see it). Type /trader and you'll get a menu where you can set the price of the items you want to sell and then make yourself a Trader. You have to stand still and wait for folks to buy from you while doing this, so it's often best to do it at night while you sleep, while you're at work or during some other downtime. When people buy your goods, the money goes right into your pocket.
