Crazy Redd's, also known as the Black Market, is a store run by Redd, a kitsune (Japanese for fox; in English, 'Kitsune' refers to foxes in Japanese folklore) who has a shifty nature. The shop contains items that can also be bought from Tom Nook in his store, but for a higher price, as well as items sold exclusively by Redd which cannot be found anywhere else.

The shop also sells paintings which can be forgeries - these can be identified by Blathers, or when the player attempts to sell them. Most paintings (and all paintings beginning in New Leaf) are sold here.

Appearances[edit]

In Animal Crossing[edit]

In Animal Crossing, Crazy Redd's appears once a month in an undisclosed location. To enter, the player will receive a letter signed by Redd telling the player when the shop will appear. Copper at the Police Station tells the player the location of the shop.

In Animal Crossing: Wild World[edit]

In Wild World, the shop appears once a week outside Town Hall. The player will be sent a letter containing a password or, if the shop has not been visited, given a password by a villager in the town. 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 found only at Crazy Redd's, as well as genuine paintings, are worth 151 points each by the Happy Room Academy. Forged paintings are worth zero points.

Passwords[edit]

These passwords are for Wild World only because Redd's store does not require passwords in City Folk or New Leaf.

In Animal Crossing: City Folk[edit]

Buying an item from Redd in Animal Crossing: City Folk.

In City Folk, Crazy Redd's appears as a small building in the city to the left down what villagers call a "dark alley", in what is described as a "shifty" part of the city. 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. Even with an invitation, there is a one-time fee of 3,000 Bells to enter, but he gives the player 1,000 Bells for every player they send an invite card to that visits. Similar to previous games, the majority of the game's paintings can be bought only from Crazy Redd's. A number of these paintings can be forgeries, however, which can be identified by Blathers and Tom Nook. Usually, after traveling ahead in time, Crazy Redd's will be closed until the next Wednesday.

In Animal Crossing: New Leaf[edit]

Inside Redd's tent in Animal Crossing: New Leaf.

In New Leaf, Crazy Redd's will have a tent in the Event Plaza, near the town tree. The player can also check for the presence of Redd's Tent by visiting the Police Station, where Booker or Copper will inform the player of his visit. He appears on a random day, except Sunday, and no more than once per week. He may not visit at all on a given week. The shop will only offer works of art. He sells four works of art at a time. Players can examine the item they want to buy. When a player makes a purchase, he does not give the item to them right there and then; instead, he marks it off as sold, and mails it to them, where it arrives the next day. Once players have made a decision, they cannot change the item; in addition to this, players can only purchase one work of art from Redd in a single day, even if they visit another town where his tent is set up.

In Animal Crossing: The Movie[edit]

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 them hiding inside his tent.

Artwork[edit]

Main article: Forgery

In Animal Crossing: City Folk[edit]

In City Folk, Redd's is the only place paintings can be purchased. However, when buying paintings from Crazy Redd's, there is always a chance that the painting is a forgery. This is found out when a player tries to donate or sell the item, in which case Blathers or Tom Nook will point out the duplicity. Forged paintings can be sold for 10 Bells, and have a Happy Room Academy value significantly less than that of the original painting.

In Animal Crossing: New Leaf[edit]

In New Leaf, as in Animal Crossing: City Folk, Redd's shop is the only place to obtain artwork, but he no longer sells furniture at his shop. Now it is possible to spot fakes in the art on display by looking closely at the details of the artwork. Players can also use the D-Pad to change the camera angle to get a better view of the artwork if required. If the player tries to sell Reese a forged piece of artwork, she will recognize it as such and charge a 100 Bell disposal fee like with any other junk item.
