* The question of, "who makes every character's costume" was answered in ''Amazing Spider-Man #502'', which introduced Leo Zelinsky. A tailor from Brooklyn, he doesn't do much to keep his business secret except what small business owners always rely on - using only word of mouth to advertise - but he caters to just about ''every'' super-human in the Marvel Universe, heroes and villains alive. (Why does he see nothing wrong with this? As he explains, "If Doctor Octopus goes into a deli and orders a cheese sandwich and the clerk gives it to him, does that make the clerk a bad man? everyone has to eat, everyone needs clothes.) To avoid conflicts between the heroes and villains, his shop is open for the first group on Monday, Wednesday, and Saturday, the second on Tuesday and Thursday. He also maintains a strict confidentiality policy for all of his clients, only breaking it once in order to prevent a murder. Otherwise, his clients have included such big names as ComicBooks/TheAvengers, ComicBooks/{{XMen}}, and SelfDemonstrating/DoctorDoom.

* ''RiverCityRansom'' has Merlin's Mystery Shop, which is hidden in the Armstrong Thru-Way Tunnel. It sells expensive fantasy items with names like "Excaliber" and "Zeus Wand" that provide enormous stat boosts. * ''{{Runescape}}'' has several of these (usually involving the completion of a quest), but the prime example is the Ape Atoll; you can't shop anywhere on the island until you're done two (moderately long) quests, you will be attacked if you show up in the vicinity without turning yourself into a monkey of some kind, and you can't communicate with the monkeys unless you're wearing a monkeyspeak amulet. Also, the island itself is right on the southwest edge of the world, and can only be reached by gnome hang glider. The most commonly-bought item on the island is a Dragon Scimitar, which is a good weapon for medium-high level fighters, and cannot be purchased (from {{NPC}}s) anywhere else.

* Crazy Redd's store in ''AnimalCrossing:City Folk''. You need to have one of your neighbors mail an invitation to you, and in order to do that, you need to randomly talk to them. If you don't have an invite, he'll casually shoo you away, and drops the not-so-subtle hint of how you're supposed to get in. Other than that, it's actually pretty easy to find. Only place with an iron-looking door.

* In ''XXXHolic'', the shop can only be seen by those who need it, and sells wishes for something of equal value. * The eponymous ''PetShopOfHorrors'' doubles as TheLittleShopThatWasntThereYesterday. * According to ''ReadOrDie'' there's a secret book shop in the Jinbocho area of Tokyo, full of ultra-rare books. Reaching it requires inputting a secret code in an elevator, as well as the use of a card key (though in the TV series, Anita manages it by just picking the lock on the elevator).
