why didn't anyone tell me about this before

Okay, so I am probably, literally, the last person to find this, and I’m wondering why the heck no one told me about this sooner. I booted up Stardew Valley today, because I needed to give my wrist a day off from drawing. While at the Wizard’s Tower talking to my favorite purple haired mage I decided to poke my head around the corner and found a trap door I didn’t remember seeing before.

And I was like, “Awwwww sweet! Imma see what’s down there! I’ve got 5 hearts with the guy, so if it’s his room this will be no problem!”

I get down the stairs and am slightly disappointed to find that it’s not his room but a cellar with a weird gold statue.

Which I obviously click on.

The heck? I’ve played almost 100 hours of this game and I’m nearing the end of my third year and you’re telling me that I could’ve changed my outfit whenever I wanted? This whole time? Like, I could’ve gone and actually picked the original purple shirt that I wanted to use? No, I didn’t change my appearance, because I’m so used to it now. But, really? Why didn’t anyone tell me this before?
