The following people will buy gourds for one gold each:
- Alfhild Battle-Born in Whiterun or Battle-Born Farm.
- Avrusa Sarethi at Sarethi Farm north of Treva's Watch.
- Synda Llanith at Merryfair Farm northwest of Riften.
- A gourd is listed in-game as a component in the Resist Fire and Resist Frost recipes that can be purchased from alchemists, but since the Gourd is not an ingredient, it cannot be used in Alchemy.
