By

This page offers a guide on how to unlock your Nook Shopping Catalog in Happy Home Paradise DLC.

Tom Nook will let you source furniture from the Nook Shopping catalog.

Nook Shopping Catalog

After you’ve designed 27 Vacation Homes, you’ll return to Paradise Planning HQ to find that Tom Nook has come to visit! He’ll tell you and Lottie that you can now use any item from your Nook Shopping Catalog to decorate vacation homes.

Your Nook Shopping Catalog consists of all furniture you’ve ever purchased or picked up, so you’ll have loads more items to furnish your clients’ vacation homes with! This also includes any fossils and art you’ve picked up too - so you can create some really imaginitive interior and exterior designs!

How to Increase Your Nook Shopping Catalog

If you’ve not got many items in your Nook Shopping Catalog, there’s a number of things you can do to increase it fairly quickly.

  • Buy items from Nook’s Cranny frequently - the more you’ll buy, the more you’ll have catalogued.

  • Cataloging in the Community - If you’ve ever visited an ACNH social media group or forum, you may have seen people asking to “catalog” someone else’s items. When “cataloging”, you’ll be given permission by another person to pick up their items so that they become registered in your Nook Shopping Catalog. You’re not keeping the items, just making them available to buy from your catalog.

  • Shake Trees! - Everyday, there are two trees on your island that have an item of furniture hidden in them. On every mystery island, you’re also guaranteed a tree with an item inside it. All you have to do is shake the tree and the furniture will fall out onto the ground.
