Are you wondering why Mabel disappeared from your island in Animal Crossing: New Horizons (ACNH)? In this guide, we will cover how to make Mabel come to your island, as well as what to do when Mabel seems to have gone from your island!
List of Contents
The most likely reason for Mabel not showing up is because another visitor is on your island. If another visitor can be seen standing around near the Resident Services plaza, it is extremely likely that Mabel won't appear, so all you can do is wait for the day to change and hope she shows up.
Mabel is also very unlikely to appear when there is some kind of event going on in town. In this type of instance as well, you'll have to wait for her to come again on another day. During the Bunny Day Event, which takes place April 1st - 12th, Mabel will still sometimes appear in front of Resident Services though.
Since Mabel doesn't have any kind of fixed schedule where she regularly comes to visit, her coming to your island on any given day is totally left up to probability. Check daily and wait for her next appearance!
In order for Mabel to come to your island, you first need to unlock Nook's Cranny. To unlock Nook's Cranny, you have to upgrade from a tent into a house, then speak with Timmy and Tommy at Resident Services. For a full guide on Nook's Cranny, see the page below.
After Nook's Cranny has been completed, go inside to witness a short dialogue with Mabel. Afterward, she will begin to visit your island from time to time.
Mabel will irregularly come to your island to sell clothes in front of the Resident Services building. After you buy clothes from her on two different days, you'll be able to build the Able Sisters shop, so be sure an snag a few threads from her when you see her around.
|Appearance||Times (Business Hours)|
|Mabel in the Plaza||5 AM to 10 PM|
|After the Able Sister Shop is unlocked||9 AM to 9 PM|
The times when you can meet with Mabel differ before and after you unlock the Able Sisters Store. Before you unlock the store, Mabel will disappear after 10 PM, so be sure and make a purchase from her before then!
