Timmy and Tommy Nook

The Shop

Aww, these cute kids running the massive furniture monopoly.

Buying Items

The Nook twins run their store on Main Street and offer furniture, tools, wallpaper, carpet, stationary and fortune cookies. Fortune cookies can only be bought using play coins (2 per cookie) so get running!

The fortunes inside the cookies can be redeemed for cool Nintendo items (my favourite so far is the Tri-Force). See the fortune cookies section for a list of all the items you can get from fortune cookies.

Once you’ve upgraded to T & T Mart you can use the catalogue in the corner to order a number of items. Some things, like the Nintendo items from fortune cookies, cannot be ordered. Anything you order will be delivered to your house the next day.

Upgrading The Shop

You’ll notice that the shop has a limited selection when you first move into your town. Thankfully the owners will carry out renovations from time to time so that your selection grows. See below for details on when your shop will be upgraded.
