Marios items come from the baloons you can shoot down. Golden shovel comes from burying a normal shovel for 1 day's time and digging it up. Golden Fishing Rod & Golden Net come from catching every bug and fish there is. Golden Axe comes from throwing a normal axe into the fountain that can be built by donating to the town. The Golden Watering Can comes from keeping the Town perfect for 14 days.

As you've seen, you can get Mario items and golden and silver tools, but you can also get rare items from different characters that come to your Town on differents events of the year:

Jingle : A reindeer, comes on 24th december, gives a rare item when you find him.

Zipper T. Bunny : A yellow rabbit, comes on Easter Sunday, gives you egg furniture when you give him the bunny foil that are in underground eggs.

Tortimer : The mayor will give you items like:
Resetti model on Groundhog day.
New Years T-Shirt on the 1st of January.

My fingers are getting cramp so I'll let you get these items yourself. I was glad to help!

You get most of the Mario series of furniture by shooting down presents with a slingshot. You get the others by paying for them with shop points.

You get them by popping gift bags that hang from balloons in the air with a slingshot.
