Where Is the Lost and Found In Stardew Valley? Answered

It's important for all players in Stardew Valley to know.

Inside Mayor Lewis' House

Wondering where the Lost and Found is located in Stardew Valley? Here’s what you need to know.

Stardew Valley, the sleepy simulation role-playing game by developer Eric “ConcernedApe” Barone, has led to plenty of players enjoying an open-ended country lifestyle of their dreams since 2016. Even with over half a decade under its belt, new players still can go into the game with zero knowledge and eventually learn the ropes. Before long, they’ll need to use the Lost and Found box, which new players definitely won’t know how to find in the beginning hours.

Like the name says, the Lost and Found box is where players can retrieve left behind and missing items. Usually, players will use the Lost and Found box to pick up special orders, lost tools, hats from children, and other event items. It’s an essential tool in the game that keeps you covered through your day-to-day activities. The only catch is finding it. Here’s where to find the Lost and Found in Stardew Valley.

Stardew Valley Lost and Found Box Location

You can find the Lost and Found box within Mayor Lewis’ house. After heading into town from the direction of your farm, head down the town square and pass The Stardrop Saloon. Once you reach the three benches nestled between bushes below the Saloon, Mayor Lewis’ wooden-fenced house will be off to the right. Inside his home rests the Lost and Found box with a question mark above it, sitting next to a pair of colored books in the top-left corner.

Because the Lost and Found box is inside Mayor Lewis’ home, there will be times when his front door is locked. It’s a minor issue, but every day between 8:30 a.m. and 10:00 p.m. is when you can go inside and check out the box. So, if you lost a tool or want to see if anything is sitting inside the box, plan your day accordingly if it’s late at night or super early.
