“My name's not really Sandy, you know. It's just good for business.”
— Sandy

Sandy is a villager who lives in the Calico Desert where she runs the store, the Oasis. Players won't meet her until they've repaired the bus by completing the vault bundle or purchasing "Bus" for Gold.png40,000g through the Joja Community Development Form.


Sandy does not leave the Oasis, and can be found there when the store is open, from 9am to 11:50pm.


Sandy allows Mr. Qi to operate his casino behind her shop. It's clear they're not close, but she accepts his money and "looks the other way" with whatever he's doing back there. She also mentions she's friends with Emily, as during the first meeting she mentions that Emily wrote to her about them.

When the player completes all chat options, they will sometimes be given Milk. This is limited to once per day.

“A birthday gift? That's very kind of you! I love it.”

“Oh, a birthday gift! Thank you.”

  • As stated at the top of the page, Sandy is not her real name. The game never discloses what her real name is.
  • Sandy may randomly request items at the Help Wanted board outside Pierre's General Store. The monetary reward may be less than the cost of a bus ticket to the Desert.
  • Sandy occasionally says "You look really thirsty. Here, have a taste of this ice cold milk." and gives the player Milk when talked to.


  • 1.3: Letters from Sandy use a new white lined stationery.
