    < II.Introduction >
    I made this Guide because my last animal FAQ was not accepted. So I 
    made a guide that could become useful and has a higher chance of making it 
    up on to the guide page. I am also very good at this game and take many things 
    into detail. My memory has served me well in this game, but others cannot 
    always remember the prices of things. I hope this to be a useful guide to many
    gamers (which I believe it will) and find everything you can. If you wish to
    know the prices of other things, or know that a price is wrong please contact
    me at BIOMINION@HOTMAIL.COM (no caps needed to empahsize) THANKS!

    < IV.van Haggle Tip >
    Before I start the actual guide I would like to suggest a very good tip to
    all the new players. It's called the art of haggling, or bargaining.To me
    this added alot to the game. The fact that you could bargain. I have many of
    the haggled prices, but there are so many I could not find them all. So
    when you are selling anything to Van, bargain with him.In the guide you will
    see many of these ...g-...g (dot represent numbers) this means that the 
    second price is the price you could get by bargaining. Things like regular
    eggs, flowers and such cannot be haggled, BUT things such as gold wool, and
    expensive things the price can always be bargained. If you have something 
    expensive and hard to find try haggling.
    (Also if you have less of the RARE item haggling is easier)
    < V.Selling and Buying >
    I put this up because quite a few ppls asked me about it so here it is. 
    - Ledger
    - People
    - Your shop
    Ledger items
    - Tools
    - Animals
    - Farm upgrades
    - Animal needs
    To buy tools simply go to the ledger go to buy and scroll down to
    the item buying section. Here you will be able to choose what tools
    you want. Remember it takes a day for it to come and it will be in
    the shed after Takakura returns. You cannot sell these back, only
    by giving it to Van.
    To buy animals you do the same thing as the TOOLS. But u can only
    buy one animal a day. The animals you can buy are, young cow (Male
    and Female), Male sheep, Male and Female chickens.
    To sell them you choose sell, and you will get a cut scene showing it
    leaving the farm.
    To buy farm upgrades go down to the upgrades section. You can buy
    pond, processing plant, and milking room, but they are all expensive
    still they are worth the money. The building take a while to be built
    and you can't order any other building until it is built. You cannot
    sell a building you make.
    Animal nees such as fodder, and medicine can be ordered by going to
    the items menu. These come the next day so make sure you have some in
    stock all the time. In addition you cannot sell them off the ledger.
    The next day when Takakura comes back from his visit you will get a
    cutscene (if ur outside) of him bringing it. It is on the shelf of
    the tool shed.
    You can sell anything you carry to Van including the items you get 
    from the Ledger, meaning you can't sell animals. You can bargain with
    him (look at the section above) to get higher prices. The things he
    sells can also be sold back such as the toys and the Fishing rod
    and brush. To sell simply talk to him with the item in your hand or
    talk to him then select sell.
    Every season things are different, but he will always sell the turbojiger
    the bodijiger and the turbojolt. 
    Vesta is the big women working at the farm where Celia lives. She sells
    all seeds and trees that can be bought. Many people had problem with
    this but simply use R and L to scroll through her list of things or
    use the control stick to move it to the arrow and click A. The seeds
    are very cheap and the trees are worth the amount. She also says fertiliser
    and it is recommended you use it to upgrade your crop. 
      Celia(unmarried) / 
    Same as Vesta, Celia will not sell you ne thing after you marry.
    The friendly bartender will sell you different types of drinks to
    restore your stamina. If you have a lot of money you can also just
    chill out at his bar.
    [Your Shop]
    Many people don't ever discover this one , but you can set up your
    own shop. Simply go to where Van usually sets up shop and walk towards
    the tree. You should see the SELL on your A button. Simply click A and
    you will be able to sell the items you have in your bag. If you want to
    quit simply walk off the mat which you are on. People walking by
    will stop and come in. The kids can't buy anything but all other can.
    Lots of people like flowers, and also want your tools..... They will
    pay the same price that Van would pay you (if he was here), but you
    can give them a discount (usually very small) all the same the people
    will like you more. This is usually slow and I would suggest checking
    to see if a lot of people are walking by before you set up shop.

    Farm's Bull 0g
    Good fodder 200g
    A trick I just learned from Typhoon Soldier 7.
    To make some free money make sure you have a bull and a female cow in the 
    barn. Usually your FEMALE cow will just get pregnant out of the blue. It 
    will say something like 'Name' is fine but is acting strangely. When it says
    this go to your ledger and buy a miracle potion for that cow with a farm's
    bull. You will pay nothing. The next day Taka will call you and tell you 
    that your cow is already pregnant and does NOT need the potion. Go to the 
    ledger and he will have payed you back for something you never bought.
    < b.sheep >
    Sheep -1500g (male only)
    	       Normal   Special
    Dirty Wool     75g	???G
    Wool Grade B   115g	???G
    Wool Grade A   300g	???g
    Gold Wool      600g	720g
    All wool can be sold to van for a higher price. Never accept the first price
    he offers, keep on un-accepting until he proposes a higher price.
    < c.chicken >
    Buy     Male 900g	  Female 900g
    Sell    Male 450g         Female 450g
    Chicks  Male 150g	  Female 150g
    Buy     Male N/A          Female N/A
    Sell    Male 500g         Female 500g
    Chicks  Male 200g         Female 200g
    Ducks can only be got by triggering this event.
    Buy a pond in your first year also have no more then 6 chickens in your coop, 
    next summer wake up later then your wife. This will trigger an event where 
    your wife calls you and tells you that their are ducks in the pond. She asks 
    you if you want to keep them. Ducks are more expensive then chickens, but lay
    the same types of eggs. If the first two ducks are sold you cannot re-trigger
    the same event to get them back.
    Non-fertilized egg   40g
    Fertilized egg       50g
    Golden egg           300g - 360g
    Gold egg can be sold to van for a higher price.

    Sell - Cannot be sold
    Milk - 115g/138g (sell to Van for higher price)

    < XIII.  FAQ >
    If you need to ask something else just mail me.
    Q: When is VAN coming? I am so frustrated!
    A: He will always appear on the 3rd and 8th day of the season, he will also
    visit reguraly. His shop always open around 11:40,41,42,43,44,45,46 and 
    closes at 6:00
    Q: I've tried to sell things for a higher price but it doesn't work
    A: Somethings you cannot sell for higher prices (e.g flowers) usually you can 
    only change prices on really good things "off your farm" (e.g gold wool). Also
    Van may not give you a higher price the first time so keep trying.
    Q: What items can I lower prices?
    A: As far as I know the goat is the only thing you can decrease the price.
    Q: I can't find stuff to sell
    A: There are other guides that will help you with this, some locations are
    Near vesta's farm, Romana's mansion, Pyrotechinicians, Turtle swamp....
    Q: I don't seem to be able to make great amounts of money, what can I do?
    A: Sorry can't help you there, some tips are TREES, Butter/Cheese, 
    Ruby's spice and there are more.....
    Q: Umm I heard something about your OWN shop. What is it?
    A: You can set up your own shop to sell things to the townsfolk, to do this
    first go to the place where Van usually sets up shop. Near the tree a sell 
    button will appear. Here you set up shop and can sell things to the people 
    of the Valley. When Van's in town don't bother it won't work.
    Q: You make so little money from you crops why should I bother?
    A: If you have a seed maker and Tartan you can make some real cool crops. 
    Also it is a farm you are running.
    Q: I am in my first year and I can never seem to find anything good in the
    mines,why is this?
    A: As the years past the mine gets bigger and you can find more things. Or 
    you could just dig consistently in one spot.
    Q: The flowers are worth almost nothing should I still sell them?
    A: If you have many many flowers you can make some money, but you should keep 
    the cheap flowers for gifts, Happy Lamp,Gemsoil,Upseed for using with Tartan, 
    and sell flowers like Goddess drops.
    Q: Food and Milk rooms are expensive should I bother getting them?
    A: Food room is useful since you can make butter and cheese (it sells for a 
    much higher price) the milk room is not as useful (my opinion) but they are
    worth buying.
    Q: What should I do with food I have cooked?
    A: The prices are usually equal the things you cooked. It's your decision.
    Q: Where on earth do you get fertilisers and tree seeds!?!?!?!
    A: I asked this question myself, but when I saw the arrow button on vesta's 
    list I pressed R button and it scrolled.
