I've heard that you can break in (pick the lock), pickpocket the key off of one of the shopkeeps... I'm just looking for the simplest way to fix this so that I can have easy access to the shop to buy my upgrades. Thanks!
There's numerous reasons this bug occurs, but most commonly due to installation of the Fighter's Stronghold.

There's a few workarounds.
1. Put up with having to unlock the door every time you wish to enter (between 8am and 8pm is not considered trespassing).

2. Unlock the door (enter) then unlock the door to the private quarters. This usually solves the problem.

...and if option 2 doesn't work and you don't want to put up with 1;
Quote:
This work around assumes:
  • The Fighter's Stronghold official plug-in is installed on a hard drive.
  • You have a removable memory unit available.
  • You know how to move files on the Xbox 360.
  • You have not done anything with the Fighter's Stronghold quests or area.
Do the following steps:
  1. Move the Fighter's Stronghold official plug-in file to a memory unit.
  2. Remove the memory unit.
  3. Start the game. You may get a message about content not being availible. Ignore it.
  4. If your character is in the Imperial City's Market District, move your character to another area.
  5. Wait 73 games hours.
  6. Travel to Mystic Emporium so that your character is there between 8 am and 8 pm game time.
  7. Enter the Mystic Emporium. The door should be unlocked now.
  8. Go upstairs to the private quarters.
  9. Unlock the private quarter doors. This lock may be leveled. My character was at level 1 and the lock was Very Easy.
  10. Exit the private quarters.
  11. Exit the Mystic Emporium.
  12. Save your game. Exiting the Mystic Emporium may do an auto-save.
  13. Quit the game.
  14. Insert the memory unit.
  15. Move the Fighter's Stronghold official plug-in file to the hard drive.
  16. Restart the game.
When you restart the game you will get the first Fighter's Stronghold quest message.

I'm going through the main quest, on PS3, and when I get the 4 Daedra books which leads me to a cave where they worship or whatever I go inside. I meet a guy, I talk to him, I say something, he opens another door, then this elf looking guy talks to me. He says I need to give him all my belongings and he will take me to their master. I havet he option to give him my stuff or not. I choose the option to give him the stuff, so I can remain undercover, and the game freezes. Every time. Is that a known glitch? Should I just say screw it and kill them all?

Maybe it's a glitch on PS3. I've not heard of this issue before.

I say go and kill them all, because you will break your cover anyway once you retrieve the last book, and you'll have to kill everyone anyways to escape.

What would there be to do in oblivion with money? The only useful thing is a house, and epic armor/weapons I found by just playing through the guild questlines.

Figured it out. Before I got to the cave I found one of those stones/artifact type things that you can activate. I activated it and it gave me the Daedra dagger/gauntlets. So when I would attempt to give the dude all my items, it won't let you remove the gauntlets. It had to be what was causing the game to freeze, because I waited an hour for the affect or wear off, and it worked just fine.

I did end up going in and killing everyone, fun times. I almost saved the lizard guy, but he kept running too far ahead of me and he finally got cornered by like 6 of the guys hahaha. Oh well.

I can't seem to progress any further in the main quest line. I had to return the the real world to sell some stuff I obtained when I was in the Oblivion Plane. When I tried to go back the game would constantly freeze. Now I've tried cleaning the cache to see if it fixed the issue and it has done nothing. Is there anything I can do besides start over, I put over 400 hours into this game and I don't want a repeat of my Fable Experiences...
