132 - Animal Crossing New Leaf (3DS) - Crazy Redd's

Crazy Redd's, also known as the Black Market, is a store run by Redd, a fox who maintains a shifty nature. The shop contains items that can also be bought from Tom Nook in his store, but for a higher price. Redd as well has items sold exclusively by Redd which cannot be found anywhere else. The store restocks once every week.

The shop also sells paintings which can be forgeries - these can be identified by Blathers, or when you try to sell one to Tom Nook. If it is identified as a fake the name of the painting will change to Forged Painting. The shop is the only place (except for two paintings at Nook's) that sells paintings, but due to their unpredictable nature and high cost, there is a risk.

In Animal Crossing

In Animal Crossing, Crazy Redd's tent appears at random times during the year. To enter, the player will receive a letter signed by Redd in advance, telling the player when the shop will appear. To find the exact place where the shop is, ask Copper at the Police Station. Copper will tell you the square on the map where Crazy Redd's tent is located. Unlike in later games, Redd does not sell Forged Paintings.

In Animal Crossing: Wild World

In Animal Crossing: Wild World, the shop appears once a week outside Town Hall. The player will be sent a letter containing a password (see Redd's Passwords) or, if the shop has not been visited, given a password by a villager in the town. You must also pay a fee of 3,000 Bells to buy something from his shop for the first time. When signing up for insurance with Lyle, the player will be asked about Redd and given days of the week as answers. The day chosen will be the day the shop appears. Lyle also sells insurance for forged paintings, which suggests these paintings are then returned to Crazy Redd's to be sold once again.

Exclusive items of furniture only found at Crazy Redd's are worth 151 points each, while paintings (that are not forgeries) are worth 412 points by the Happy Room Academy.

In Animal Crossing: City Folk

In Animal Crossing: City Folk, Crazy Redd's appears as a small building in the city to the left down what villagers call a "bravery trail". It is open from 10:00 AM to 1:00 AM. No one is allowed inside without an invitation, which must be given to the player by a villager in their town, or another playable character who has been given an invite by Redd himself. You can get an invitation by talking to your villagers. Eventually, someone will ask you if you have heard of Redd's shop. If you reply no, they'll tell you about Redd's. When they ask if you want an invitation, reply yes, and one will be sent to your house the next day. However, there is a fee to even get your foot through his mysterious door. It costs 3,000 bells to even get in, considering you have an invitation. It's a lot, and may or may not be worth it. It's best to watch out when purchasing, considering the high amounts of forgeries Redd will sell.

In Animal Crossing: New Leaf

In Animal Crossing: New Leaf, Crazy Redd's appears at the town plaza on a random day, except for Sunday, and no more than once per week. He may not appear at all on a given week. No password or invitation is required to enter the tent. Inside, the player can select from four different items of art, including paintings, statues, and sculptures; Redd explains that he is now exclusively in the art dealing business and no longer sells furniture. Only one item can be purchased per customer per day, so if the player makes a purchase, he or she must wait until Redd visits town again to buy another item. Note that purchasing from Redd in one town will count in all other towns where Redd has set up shop, therefore ensuring that only one item will be purchased from him that day. All purchases are delivered by mail to customers after Redd closes up shop. Each time Redd comes to town, there are at least 2, but all can be forged paintings.

Animal Crossing: The Movie

In Animal Crossing: The Movie, Crazy Redd's store is set up during the Fireworks Show. However, unlike the games, Redd is selling his goods outside of his tent, while his supplies are all hiding inside. Redd tricks Yu and Alfonso into purchasing a fake Golden Slingshot. Claiming that the fake Slingshot was rare, he actually had an entire box filled with the slingshots hidden inside his tent.



   Main Article: Forged Painting

When buying paintings from Crazy Redd's, there is always chance that the painting is a forgery. This is found out when a player tries to donate or sell the item. Nook or Blathers (which ever the case may be) points it out. In the case of a forgery, the selling price is 10 bells and its HRA points are lower than if it were the original painting. However, not all paintings from Redd's are forged.

In Animal Crossing: New Leaf, Redd also sells statues and sculptures. Like paintings, there is a chance that these items are forgeries, but forgeries usually bear some distinguishing feature or detail that is different or not present in the genuine article.

  • In Animal Crossing: New Leaf, the player is explicitly told that only one item can be from Crazy Redd's. This means that if the player goes to another player's town with Crazy Redd, the purchase is still counted in their hometown and cannot buy another item from another player town's Crazy Redd's.
