How to Find Redd

At first finding Redd on your island can be a bit difficult! Here are the various ways and places you can find him.

Around Your Island (First Encounter)

ACNH - Redd invites the resident

The first time you meet Redd, he will be walking around your island after being announced by Isabelle. His boat appears on the small beach on the north of your island as well, but you're unable to enter it!

After buying art from him and donating it to the Museum, talk to him again and you'll be able to visit him in his Treasure Trawler.

ACNH - Redd

Once you donate Redd's art to the museum, Redd and his Treasure Trawler will become regular visitors on your island!

He will visit randomly, but at the very least once every two weeks, so check for his ship on the secret beach at the back of your island.

Harv's Plaza

Redd has also set up shop in Harv's Plaza on Harv's Island as of the 2.0 Update! He sells less items here, but you don't have to wait for him to show up on your island.

ACNH - Redd amiibo card Type Special Character
Birthday October 18
First Appearance Animal Crossing

Redd is a fox that deals suspicious works of art and furniture on your island, who was introduced in the first Animal Crossing game.

Did you know...

  • In Japan, foxes are considered sneaky and this most likely contributed to Redd's design as a fox.
  • It is likely that for the English localization the name "Redd" was chosen as a nod to an older American sitcom about a junk dealer named Redd Foxx.
