'Erm.. I was certain retainers would take care of this..You can put 80 items on a retainer and as much gil as you want without having to run a Bazaar.. The items would be accessible to any of your characters under your account no matter where they are in the world so long as your retainer is NOT running a Bazaar somewhere.
If you are running a Bazaar then you're going to have to take your characters to the retainer... And no, you still don't put the items you want to share in the Bazaar itself, you just put it in the retainer's main inventory.

Yeah that would've been the logical assumption, but it turns out not to be true.
In reality, a single retainer is attached to a character, not to an account.. so a retainer is accessible only from the character that it's attached to, even if there are other characters on the same account.
