The Box of Secrets is a shop in Knothole Island, Fable II's first DLC.

This shop functions differently than most in the way that money is not used, but rather various items like Necklaces are traded in exchange for secret items. The shop also purveys such unique items as the Wretcher's Blade, the Judge's Steel, and Hal's Rifle, which is in fact a replica of the assault rifle featured in the Halo series of video games.

Acquiring all the items in the shop will unlock the achievement The Collector.

Locations of Required ItemsEdit

Item Location
Regal Purple Dye Travel to Fairfax Gardens and check the travelling merchants for the Clothing one. Also found in the upper hall of a cottage in the Snowglobe (See the Future DLC).
Crucible Peanuts x2 As the name suggests, travel to Westcliff's food trader. Also found in 5 star towns' produce stalls, such as Bowerstone Market (if improved with good deeds by the character).
Crunchy Chick x3 Found most commonly at one of Bloodstone's food traders. Food Traders in Fairfax Gardens and Oakfield always carry one.  Five can be acquired should you decide to take the initiation for the Temple of Shadows.
Lute x2 Knothole Island's General Goods Stall or Bowerstone's Big Pile of Stuff. Can also be found in a dig spot in the Celestial Keep.
Monk Robes Clothing stall in Oakfield near The Sandgoose.
Murgo's Big Book of Trading x2 Bowerstone Market's book store, "Fiction Burns". Murgo himself sometimes carries one.
Pure Experience Extract Travelling Potion Trader in Fairfax Gardens, sometimes found at Potion in Motion in Bowerstone Market (There's a higher chance that the potion will appear when Bowerstone Market's economy is at five stars). One can also be found in the upstairs in a house in Westcliff (Westcliff Development must be completed).
Diamond Most Jewellery stores.  If you own Fairfax Castle, the dressers in the bedroom sometimes give them out.
Eternal Love Ring Most Jewellery stores.  If you own Fairfax Castle, the dressers in the bedroom sometimes give them out.
Marriage and How to Survive It "Fiction Burns" bookstore in Bowerstone Market.  Sometimes found at the Jewellery store.
Pretty Necklace Travelling Gift Trader is most common.  Gift stalls and jewellers may also have one.
Puny Carrot x2 Food Stalls in any town unless your economy is higher than two stars. Aside from killing people or raising rent to lower economy, you can also find them in the dressers inside the abandoned houses in the Drowned Farm area of Wraithmarsh. They can sometimes be found in travelling merchants in Fairfax Gardens (due to the large amount of items they have), or in Bowerstone Old Town's food stall. They can also be found in the Dingly Burrow.
Table Wine x2 Drink stalls and Bars. "The Cow & Corset" bar in Bowerstone Market has it most of the time. Old Town Food Stall always(?) has one Table Wine. Table Wine is also one of the prizes at the Westcliff shooting range, as many Table Wines as you like can be won there.

Important Hints/Tricks

Having patience is very important! Sometimes it takes a few hours to find some items.

  • Some vendors won't have the specific item you're looking for.  In order to restock them, you can sleep 7 days, and check again.
  • Sleeping 7 days usually resets the travelling traders as well.  If you found the travelling clothing vendor but (s)he doesn't have the dye and you own Fairfax Castle, you can ask them to follow you into the bedroom where you can sleep for 7 days to restock them.
  • You can check the actual book shelves in "Fiction Burns" to find some books. If you don't own the store, this is stealing, so be careful.
  • Make sure to buy 2 Lutes, to make 3 total, so you don't end up having to look for another for personal use.
