Once you've unlocked them by saving the bears you can purchase things from four shops around the world. Along with the basics such as keys, butterflies and mushrooms they each sell a different selection of more advanced items and you'll need to visit them all to get everything.

The keychains, wallets, bottles and bags will not stack their totals as they replace each other as you upgrade them.

You talk to Old One Horn then he will ask you about some switches and you accept his mission, then you look around the castle and open the switches.

If you have enough relics and can't seem to open the door, try resetting the DS and loading up your game again and attempting it again. If the X still won't appear on screen even after moving around against the door a lot then you may have to just start over and hope that it works on your next go through.
