Somewhere in England in the 12th century
The Golden Goblet Inn has reported a robbery and needs your investigative skills. Rumor has it that the local blacksmith conducts some shady business practices to accumulate wealth, and his ties to the village guards often make him immune to scrutiny - He is the prime suspect.
The Inn keeper asked you to search his house for the stolen goods. They will keep him drunk in the Inn, so you have more than enough time to retrieve what's been stolen. The blacksmith is notorious for his bad memory and cryptic speech, so it wouldn't be a surprise if he had hid some clues for himself to remember... certain things. Please do not damage any property.
You arrive at the forge. Unsurprisingly, our bewildered friend forgot to close the front door.
As you step foot into this house, your magic-ey senses immediately start tingling and you turn your head to the flame on the dining table.
You perceive a voice in your head:
Tell me the five letter code and I shall conjure a key to the chest
You're terrible at lockpicking, so I guess you'll have to play the flame's game. Perhaps the stolen goods are in said chest? If so, you will somehow need to find the correct five letter code. It must be hidden somewhere here! From now on, you actively start searching for clues and inspect all areas of the house closely - In a specific order the flames magically guides you to.

Hint for arguably the hardest part of this puzzle:
The mini-puzzle of a specific letter will require you to use parts of the Old English Latin Alphabet. This was weakly hinted by the location/year the story takes place, but may nonetheless be a bit evil :)
Hints for each mini-puzzle:
1. Cut it out
3. No trick here
4. Subtract _ from _
1. Common letter of _ and _
2. Each object on the shelve represents a single letter. Remember hint #1.
4. You'll need the radish and the markings.
5. Start on the odd one out, then draw
i.stack.imgur.com/XXXXX.jpg with the five letter code to see if it's correct. The intended image is unmistakable, as it was also photographed in this house. First 2 letters are lowercase, last 3 uppercase.
