Information

Sell Price: Cannot be sold

The Telephone is a piece of equipment that allows players to check store hours and inventory.[1] It can be purchased from the Carpenter's Shop for Gold.png2,000g. It may be placed anywhere in Stardew Valley, indoors or out.

You can receive a scam phone call, a call from the bear from Bear's Knowledge, from Vincent, Lewis, or Pierre, from the hat mouse, in a foreign language that you can't understand.[2]

Calling a merchant does not affect friendship points and does not count as talking to that villager for the day.
