The Nature Day Event has introduced art into the world of Animal Crossing, and you are getting the chance to play an experienced art collector, as you get to pick up these art pieces and get them to Blathers, the director of your museum. Whenever you need to acquire some art you will need to speak to Redd. In this Animal Crossing New Horizons guide, we are going to walk you through how you can unlock Redd in the game.
How To Unlock Redd In Animal Crossing New Horizons
Players might remember Redd from the previous Animal Crossing game, in which also he was a seller of notable art. A chat with Redd is most likely to result in an offer of an exclusive art piece by him, which you can possess in exchange for Bells. The items are quite expensive so be sure to have your purse full. But, Redd is not a very trustworthy fellow as he will often hand you over fake pieces, which are of no use in the museum.
To unlock Redd and the Treasure Trawler area, which is a new merchant location, you must first speak to Blathers. He will praise you for the fine work you have done of gathering items for displaying in the museum and inform you of the addition of a new wing to the museum for art. A day after this conversation, Redd will appear on your island.
You will become aware of Redd’s arrival when Isabelle tells you she has seen a mysterious figure wandering around. When the day’s announcements are done, Redd can be found in the vicinity of the Resident Centre. Speak to him and introduce yourself, and in return, you will get your first art piece from him. Take this to Blathers, and the art wing’s construction will begin, which takes a few days.
Once the ceremony is over, go and find Redd again and have a chat. Redd will tell you how he is happy for the purchase you made and now he wants to stay. At this point, his Treasure Trawler will appear in the north of the island. You will find it after a bit of exploring, and then you can go to it every time you need an art piece. However, the Treasure Trawler won’t be on the island daily, so keep a lookout for it. Keep in mind that only one purchase can be made per visit.
This is how you can unlock Redd in Animal Crossing New Horizons. If you are interested in learning more about the game then you can check out our Animal Crossing New Horizons guides hub.
