"Lend me your ear for a moment, won't you? You know that street merchant outside? He's selling hearts. Can you believe that? Hearts! I mean, you can just scoop them off the ground with a net. The nerve of that man! Might as well sell the leaves off trees! Don't buy them, whatever you do."
— Item Seller

The Hyrule Item Seller is a character who appears in The Legend of Zelda: A Link Between Worlds . She runs the Item Shop found in the northwest of Kakariko Village. Her husband used to own it, but after he spent all of his profits on an Apple from the Street Merchant outside of their shop, the Item Seller became angry and yelled at him, so he ran away out of fear. She complains about the Street Merchant to Link and does not hesitate to tell him not to buy his Recovery Heart since he can scoop them up off the ground with a Net. However, most of the time she seems rather pleasant. The Item Seller offers a Scoot Fruit for 50 Rupees and a Foul Fruit for 30 Rupees. She also sells a Shield for 50 Rupees and tells Link is would be a good thing to have to defend himself from the monsters that have suddenly taken over Hyrule. If he refuses, she warns him to be careful. If he already has a shield, she does not sell it to him and instead says he should come back if he encounters one of the shield-eating monsters she has heard about.
