I only intended to log in to check the turnip prices, but of course I got distracted. Pete was standing outside my door with a letter for me from Nintendo. Just when I thought he didn’t stop by with special deliveries anymore!
It’s nearing the end of Autumn.
Even in the village Autumn is coming to a close.
The season for the Harvest Festival has arrived!
Please savor the flavors of fall! (I’m taking some liberties with that one)

What was in such a strangely food-related letter? A turkey of course!
I’m actually glad I waited a bit to talk about streetpass. My Japanese class is near J-Town in San Francisco and I occasionally run into one or two people from Japan (or maybe they’re just otakus like me). Today I got someone from Japan who had Animal Crossing New Leaf. Score!
I talked to Kent outside of the Happy Home Exhibition Area and he escorted me into the plaza. Waiting for me there were two people! The one on the left I expected, that’s Kokuto (aka KC). The styling guy on the right I did not anticipate. His name is TETQUE from BILLYS village (caps his, I haven’t just gotten that excited and broken my keyboard.)
If you look carefully you might noticed that Kokuto is holding a pinwheel. When you talk to people holding balloons or pinwheels they give them to you (which makes me wonder if maybe the balloon guy is not in this). I’ve only gotten that pinwheel. KC has gotten a regular balloon and a bunny balloon from me.
I talked to TETQUE and he told me that his house was in West #8. They kind of have addresses. There are three sections West, North and South. Both of my visitors are in West so far.
That’s the outside of TETQUE’s house. Kokuto’s house is a row behind him.
It’s a little spartan for my taste but meh. We’re all just starting out. Once inside you can play with everything just like if you were visiting a real house. But when you touch something it will tell you what it is.
Sorry I don’t have pics of this, but on the bottom screen while you’re in the house you have the option of ordering things. It will display a list of items in the house. When you click on one it shows it on the top screen like this:
I thought the large patchwork sofa in his room was cute, so I clicked on it:
Most of the stuff that is “not for sale” normally (like special set items such as the mushroom furniture) you can’t order from the house. However, the downloadable raccoon clock was for sale as well as the nutcracker I got from Gulliver.
Additionally you can see a player’s profile card (it’s on the bottom screen. I haven’t taken pictures) and mark them as a favorite so that they don’t get kicked out of the area when you run out of space. You can have 16 favorites.
That’s KC’s house. It’s changed since I got him on streetpass, though I believe he still has the urinal. 🙂 The red balloon is from my character via streetpass.
Misc. Island Stuff
Yesterday when I went to the island there was a couch in the upper right hand corner of the hut. I thought it was a decoration since there were four chairs in there already and it didn’t seem out of place to me. But today when I went to the island (I’m weak!) there was a Cabana Vanity in the corner. That looked out of place… So, apparently in addition to the clothes, and paper there’s one piece of furniture for sale there. It costs medals as well. My assumption is that since Redd no longer sells regular furniture that you can get rare set pieces of furniture from the island. The Cabana vanity wasn’t rare in city folk though, so I don’t know if the rare items have changed, or if they sell regular furniture too? Or if I’m just making crazy guesses. I totally want that pirate hat BTW.
FYI, the guy in front and to the right of me buys whatever you’ve gotten off the island for next to nothing.
The lady (?) at the desk will sign you up for tours or you talk to her when you want to leave.
The old lady probably sells you merchandise, but I haven’t had enough medals to confirm that. Maybe she just dozes in the corner.
Those chairs to the left are where you need to sit to go on tours.
