Accessory Store

Hours: 8:00 am to 8:00 pm (20:00)

Upgrade to Level 2: Ship 50,000 G worth of Mine items and Ring the Red Bell
Upgrade to Level 3: Ship 100,000 G worth of Mine items

When you first start your farm on Castanet, the Accessory shop will not be open. Julius will express his worry about Mira, the shop's owner. You will have to talk to her at the Chelsta Church and convince her to return to her shop.

Mira manufactures two types of items; accessories you can wear, and accessories you can give as gifts. The cost for each type is the same, but the items you wear will automatically be sent to your farmhouse dresser when created. The items meant to be gifts are put in your rucksack.

Her main task is to process the items you find inside the rocks in any of the three mines. Mira will charge 35 G per item appraisal, and there isn't a way to influence the quality of the processed item:

Junk OreJunk = 100%
Iron OreJunk = 50%
Iron = 50%
Copper OreJunk = 60%
Copper = 40%
Silver OreJunk = 70%
Silver = 30%
Gold OreJunk = 85%
Gold = 15%
Rare OreJunk = 90%
Rare Metal = 10%
Red WonderfulGlass = 75%
Garnet = 20%
Ruby = 5%
Yellow WonderfulGlass = 75%
Amber = 20%
Topaz = 5%
Green WonderfulGlass = 60%
Peridot = 20%
Jade = 15%
Emerald = 5%
Blue WonderfulGlass = 60%
Lapis Lazuli = 20%
Aquamarine = 15%
Sapphire = 5%
Purple WonderfulGlass = 70%
Spinal = 20%
Amethyst = 10%
White WonderfulGlass = 60%
Crystal = 20%
Opal = 15%
Diamond = 5%

It seems the more of a particular type of item you give, the better the chance of receiving a high-quality item in return. For example, if you give Mira 5 White Wonderfuls she will most likely return mainly Glass, but if you give her 50 White Wonderfuls you're sure to get at least 1 Diamond in return.


Mira can manufacture brooches, pendants, and finger rings. The materials required is the same for each one (i.e., an Opal Ring costs the same money and material as a Opal Pendant and an Opal Brooch; 400 G plus 1 Silver and 1 Opal.).

Ramsey the blacksmith can upgrade your tools so you can use their increased power. The tool's powers can not be utilized until you hand over the required ore and gold to Ramsey. Even if you have a level 2 Hammer, you can't smash rocks in 2 squares unless you upgrade the tool with copper bars.

At the beginning of the game, the power of fire on Castanet is too weak to heat the forge. You will have to ring the Red Bell before Ramsey can upgrade your tools to something better than Iron.

The ore you need can be found in any of the 3 mines. Take the ore to Mira, who will process them into bars. Once you have enough bars Ramsey will be able to power up your tool.
