Elza can find a number of items just by exploring the city itself.
There are a number of random items that just sit on the ground (the little blue bags).
Some require going into Seek mode to find.
Some others are in chests hidden (not very well) through out the city.
Some require going into Seek mode and staring at certain NPCs until they're willing to give them up to you.
Maps from: http://dswiipspwikips3.jp/laststory/
There are 17 locations where Zael can find Stat Boosters. These are typically located in odd corners where most pedestrian NPCs aren't wandering around.
There are 8 locations where Zael can go into Seek mode to find items on the ground.
There are 4 hidden treasure chests in the City.
There are 11 people that will give Zael items if he stares at them long enough.
In Seek mode Zael can chain each 'Seek' in order to get up to five items. The fifth one is usually something rare.

In area 5, there is a difference as to what Zael can 'Seek'. It is a windy alley East of Lotta's shop. When you Seek there, look out for feathers flying through the air. These feathers will have the target box around them, and give a small boost to Zael 's bowgun arrow damage.
