Secret Sets

Have you ever opened a box of Re-Ment only to find something that isn't in any of the pictures on the box? If so, congratulations--you have discovered a secret set!!  Some secret sets are color variations of regular sets, while others are totally different.  They are always exciting because they are typically quite rare.  Often there's only one secret set in 120 small boxes! 

Secret sets may be numbered and extend beyond the normal series (11,12, etc.) or they may be labeled as SP (for special, I assume).  The older secret sets didn't come with pamphlets, so they don't have any apparent designation.

There are some sets that come with color variations as a regular part of the set.  Japanese Goods/Oriental Season is one of these types of sets.  Each full box contains five sets that are pictured plus five color variations on the five pictured sets.  These color variations are not rare because they occur in every box.  Favorite Stationery is another set that has color variations as a part of every full set.  To see photos of these color variations, please check out the Shop Here! page.

On this page, I'm happy to showcase many of the secret sets in my own collection, in somewhat random order.  I have more, but I haven't found them yet :).  As I find more sets and pamphlets, I'll add them to the page.  If you love secret sets, you might want to join the Flicker Group for Re-Ment Secret Sets--they have fabulous photos of many, many sets there.  The sets on this page are not for sale, but I do list available secret sets on the Shop Here! page within

The photos below will enlarge if you click them.  Where I have a pamphlet for the set, I've included a scan of it.  And if I've labeled anything wrong or don't know what set a secret set belongs to, please write me and let me know.  Thanks and enjoy!!

Please click on photos to enlarge and to see the backs and insides of the pamphlets and story cards

I'm sorry, but the items on this page are in my personal collection and are not for sale. Any secret sets that I have for sale will be on the Shop Here! page.
