Your character can steal from shop by taking an item, and standing above the store keeper. As he looks towards of the top of the screen, use the door to leave the shop. Note: Your character will be branded a thief and may never return to the same shop. However, the game can be saved and reloaded if your character is killed by a store keeper, which allows the store to be re-entered without penalty.
You can steal items after getting your sword from the beach. Make the storekeeper look at the place where his goods are and walk left until you are above the door, Then, walk out. If this does not work the first time, try again. When you walk back into the store the storekeeper will kill you -- save beforehand and continue to do it again.
When you steal from the shop, get the storekeeper to look to the right, giving you more time to exit.
After you get Malon to follow you so she can wake up the walrus, go to the store. Pick up an item and just walk out. If you go back in, the shop owner will kill you. After you steal, Malon will call you "Thief" for the rest of the game.
Go into the village tool shop. Grab an item, then go above the man and follow the pattern: top, side, bottom and repeat until he looks at you very slowly. Then, when you are on the top, run out the door very fast.
The easiest way to steal an item from the Mabe Village Shop is to pick up the item as if you were going to buy it. Walk behind the shopkeeper and wait until he turns around to look at you, then quickly run out of the door while he is facing the other way. This may require a few attempts. The drawback to doing this is that the shopkeeper will kill you the next time you enter the shop, and everyone in the game will call you "Thief".
