Buy Beautiful Art Pieces from Jolly Redd

Redd shop

In Redd's suspiciously dimly-lit shop, you'll be able to purchase artworks of various levels of authenticity. However, you are limited to buying one item per day! And, unsurprisingly, there may be fakes included in the items you purchase. It's necessary to compare the work to the real image to determine if it's a fake or not.

You Can Only Purchase 1 Piece Of Art Per Day

At Jolly Redd's Treasure Trawler, there are several arts on display. However, you can only purchase one artwork per day. After you've made a purchase, Redd will send your art via mail the following day!

Visit Friend's Island To Buy Art

Important Notes

1. You can't purchase art on your friend's island if you've already purchased art on your island on the same day!

2. Each item in the shop can only be purchased once by a single person. The supply is limited!

3. Redd can only talk to (and sell to) one player at a time

You can visit a friend's island when Redd is visiting them and purchase art! Since Redd comes very infrequently, it might be better to coordinate with other players to increase your chances of getting art!

How To Tell If It's Fake Or Not?

Closely Compare The Picture To The Original


Although It is still unclear how to distinguish the difference between real art and fake art, there is a zoom feature available which lets you take a look at the art carefully before you make a purchase. Perhaps there might be a way to tell if it's fake or not by examining details of the artwork?

Another way to determine if you bought an art work is once placed on the back of the art if genuine it has a label on it the fake version doesnt only applies to the pictures.

I also heard that fake art is haunted and can move depending on what it was a forgery of

Yes you can still get him I believe, to check whether he is there or not you just look at the map and check if redd's leaf symbol is there (it looks different then nook's leaf symbol) on the secret island that I believe is only accessible with a ladder. I could be wrong though.

You may have to talk to him twice
