A guide on how to unlock Saharah’s shop on Harv’s Island. For more information on what you can build on Harv’s Island, head over to our guide. This upgrade to Harv’s Island became available with Version 2.0 of the game, released on the 4th of November, 2021.

Saharah the travelling merchant is here to stay!

Building Saharah’s Co-op

Even though Saharah visits your island fairly regularly, you’re now able to build her a more permanent spot so you can visit her whenever you fancy a new rug, wallpaper or flooring!

To build Saharah’s Shop, you’ll need to head over to the Lloid to the left of the field and donate 100,000 Bells to him. Then, you’ll need to wait until the next day before you can visit the shop.

You'll need 100,000 Bells for Saharah's shop!

Why build Saharah’s Shop?

When Saharah visits your island, you only get a choice of one mystery rug, wallpaper and/or flooring. However, when you build her shop you’ll be able to access a wide range of different floors, wallpapers and rugs. No longer will you have to buy a bunch of mysterious items hoping to get a specific rug!

You can still buy the “mysterious” options from Saharah whenever she visits your island, but the option to just buy from her like a regular vendor is a good addition.

Now you can pick and choose from Saharah's selections!
