Building Redd’s Co-op
Even though Redd visits your island fairly regularly, you’re now able to build him a more permanent spot so you can visit him whenever you like! If you build his shop, Redd will still visit your island in his boat.
To build Redd’s Shop, you’ll need to head over to the Lloid to the right of the bonfire and donate 100,000 Bells to him. Then, you’ll need to wait until the next day before you can visit the shop.
Why build Redd’s Shop?
Redd visits your island typically around once a week. During his visit, he’ll have a number of art pieces on sale, where some are real and some are counterfeit.
However, at his shop on Harv’s Island, Redd will sell two bits of art, which change up everyday. For those of you who are desperate to complete their art gallery at the Museum, building Redd’s shop will make it much easier to find and buy art for the museum. Be cautious, though, as he will still sometimes sell fake art! Head over to our guide on Real vs Fake Art for a run down of all the art that can have a counterfeit version (if it isn’t on the list, it’s always real).
You can also play at Redd’s Raffle again, similar to the Fireworks Show raffle.
