|A place to store your items.|
|Sell Price:||Cannot be Sold
The Chest is a craftable storage item that holds up to 36 different types of items. You can stack a maximum of 999 identical items into a single slot. Items do not decompose in chests.
Chests can be left in many different places in Stardew Valley. However, if a chest is left on a walking pathway for a villager it will disappear, and its contents dropped.
An empty chest can be picked up and returned to inventory by hitting it with any tool. Chests with any items inside cannot be picked up.
When opened, chests have a color bar above their inventory window which allows players to select a different color for the chest. This can be changed at anytime without cost. There are 20 colors available to select in the color picker, plus the original brown color.
Chests outside the farm
It is possible to place chests and other crafted items outside the farm. Chests are useful for storing gifts close to the homes of Villagers who prefer them or to allow additional storage when Mining, Fishing, or Foraging. Worm Bins can be placed near fishing spots, Furnaces can be placed at the entrance to The Mines, or entire sections of the Valley may be utilized for Keg or Preserves Jar processing.
